These days, Alyssa Kirsch is feeling a new connection with her OB-GYN patients. Now that she’s gone through her own pregnancy and delivery and is spending sleepless nights with her infant daughter, she definitely feels more in tune with her pregnant and new-mom patients. And having sadly lost her own mom to ovarian cancer when she was just 16, she knows what such a diagnosis can mean to a patient and her family.

It was, in fact, her mom’s battle with cancer that led Alyssa to a career as an OB-GYN in the first place. A Grapevine girl who was recruited to play softball at West Texas A&M, she stayed in Lubbock for med school and residency, but returned to make Grapevine her home so she could be close to her dad (who couldn’t be happier in his new role
as Granddad).

The day we interviewed Dr. Kirsch, she’d just delivered three babies in five hours. Although that’s not the norm, it’s not unheard of either and Dr. Kirsch is more than equal to the challenge. “Babies come when they come,” she said. “Our goal is to be a one-stop-shop for our patients from their early teens when they come in for their first exam. We want to be here to educate them about contraception and fertility, to treat them throughout their pregnancy, delivery, and post-partum care and then to walk with them through perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause. It’s our blessing to be part of their wellness team throughout all the chapters of their lives.”

Dr. Kirsch and her fellow physicians at Comprehensive OB-GYN work hard to provide an all-encompassing practice where, along with traditional OB-GYN care, their patients can find phlebotomy, ultrasound, mammography, aesthetic services, and more. She still remembers the first day she interviewed and how surprised she was at the gorgeous décor of the practice. “It looks more like a spa than a doctor’s office,” she said. “But the best part of this practice is the people — many who’ve been here a long time. From check-in to having your vitals taken to your actual visit, you won’t find a better staff who truly cares about their patients.”

When not on the job, Dr. Kirsch enjoys every second she can with her husband, new baby daughter, and their two family dogs. Her husband is a baseball coach, and she loves watching his games. She also stays active in a charity her family created after the loss of her mom. “We raise money each year through Shout Out for Roni to increase awareness of ovarian cancer,” she said. “We hold a softball tournament fundraiser and donate the proceeds to The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC).”
