Dr. Laura Meritt has been committed to providing compassionate and quality healthcare to women in the Austin area since 1992. A founding member of Renaissance Women’s Group, she has helped to build it into the strong and dedicated group of caring and skilled physicians it is today. She has been regularly selected as an Austin Top Doctor, featured in Austin Monthly Magazine.
A physician leader, Dr. Meritt currently serves as Chief of Staff at St. David’s North Austin Medical Center. She has previously chaired the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as the Credentials Committee.
Austin ObGyn, Laura Meritt believes all women should have access to the care they need.
She participates in Project Access, a philanthropic program which provides coordinated healthcare, free of charge, to low income uninsured residents of Travis County. She has also served the community as a previous board member for West Austin Caregivers, an organization which helps metro Austin seniors with transportation needs.
After graduating from Louisiana State University, she completed medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. She went on to Baltimore for residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Franklin Square Hospital.
She enjoys all aspects of her practice and strives to offer the latest treatment options and techniques to her patients. She is trained in robotic minimally invasive surgery, and is pleased to provide this cutting edge technology to Austin area women. She has enjoyed the privilege of assisting in the miracle of childbirth for many years, and has attended over 5,000 births, so it is with mixed emotions that she announces her decision to limit her practice to gynecology beginning July 2016.
Dr. Meritt is the proud mom of three young women, and with her leisure time, she enjoys travel, hiking, cycling, and all things outdoors.
