Reiesha Graham, MD, PhD, FACOG, specializes in obstetrics and gynecology care for adolescents and adult women through all their life stages.
A native Delawarean and member of the Nanticoke Indian tribe, Dr. Graham is passionate about bringing her medical expertise back home so she can serve her local community. In addition to her medical degree she also has a PhD in pharmacology from the University of Virginia School of Medicine. Her doctoral research explored the complexities of what goes wrong in the body with diabetes and how it can be fixed.
During residency she explored the effects of central obesity on inflammation and pregnancy outcomes. She has published several research articles and has won multiple research awards including The Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award and Outstanding Resident Research Award.
Dr. Graham was drawn to the field of OB/GYN due to the diversity of patient encounters and the ability to offer life-long continuity of care and perform surgery if needed. She finds it deeply rewarding to be there for women of all ages and help optimize their health. Whether it’s walking a young girl through puberty, caring for expectant mothers and delivering their babies, or supporting women through menopause, she offers personalized care and guidance to keep women well throughout their life journeys. She is especially passionate about eliminating health disparities and helping reduce maternal and infant morbidity and mortality.
Above all else, Dr. Graham listens and respects her patients’ wishes and needs. Her approach emphasizes shared decision-making with patients and healthcare tailored to each individual. She offers both low-intervention care for low-risk obstetric patients as well as provides care for high-risk pregnancies to help women carry out their birthing plans.
Dr. Graham’s clinical interests also include minimally invasive gynecology and breastfeeding medicine.
Outside of her work, Dr. Graham enjoys the beach and being active with her spouse and their five children. She also enjoys mentoring and volunteering. Dr. Graham and her husband serve on the board of directors for a local organization that brings sports and educational opportunities to youth from all socioeconomic backgrounds.
