My name is Amira Quevedo, MD, and I am a clinical assistant professor and fellowship trained in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) at the University of Florida Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I attended medical school at the University of Miami followed by residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center. I then completed my fellowship in MIGS, at one of the oldest running fellowship programs in the country, the University of Louisville.I conduct research in endometriosis and adenomyosis and became interested in these conditions because they affect a large number of women, are under-recognized, and their painful symptoms commonly dismissed as "normal" during adolescence. These conditions may even lead to preventable chronic pain and infertility. I have seen how women's health and women's influence to communities is often not prioritized, and it became my passion and honor to improve the quality of life of women through medicine. My …goal is to increase awareness of gynecologic disorders while improving access and knowledge of the minimally invasive techniques used to treat these conditions.As a physician, my priority is to provide individualized, patient-centered care and to maximize the wellness, function, and quality of life of my patients. As a Cuban immigrant I am acutely aware of health disparities and I strive to individualize my care according to each patient's needs with every visit. I am also fluent in Spanish and happy to accommodate the needs of Spanish-speaking patients.In my free time, I enjoy restorative and wellness practices such as meditation, weight training and spinning. Additionally, dancing and preparing home-cooked meals with my husband to share with family and friends brings me great joy.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.
