Ask any group of fifth graders what they want to be when they grow and you’ll get several replies of “Doctor.” But for some children, that dream actually comes true, as it did for Dr. Marcia Tejeda.

Growing up near Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, Dr. Tejeda was inspired at a young age to join the medical field. Her summers working at this renowned teaching hospital, strengthened her passion to help others by becoming a medical doctor. Though she decided early on to pursue a career in medicine, the decision to enter obstetrics and gynecology came later. During her second year of medical school, she opted for an elective in Women’s Health Issues, which lead to Boston City Hospital OB-GYN Clinic. The dynamic staff, smart and approachable doctors, and positive environment outshone other fields to which she’d been exposed. After working at the clinic that summer, she embraced Obstetrics and Gynecology as her field of concentration.

Dr. Tejeda grew up to be no ordinary doctor. She goes above and beyond for her patients and women in her community by educating them through events like the Center for Women’s Heath Girl Talk Series. During these informative lectures, women experience a comfortable environment where they can talk and learn about women’s health issues. Beyond the office, she is dedicated to and active in the Greater Waterbury community.

Her generosity is bolstered by the rewards of her job. “I love the interaction with patients on a daily basis. I love helping bring a beautiful life into the world.” Her positive energy is an infectious one that patients and colleagues value. Dr. Tejeda is someone patients can open up to and feel comfortable talking about their health concerns and more.

The Center for Women’s Health is the perfect home for Dr. Tejeda’ s talents, because, like her, the staff is educated, caring, and dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in their field. She and her peers are proud to offer an impressive list of services including BRCA gene testing, in-house ultrasounds and minimally invasive surgical procedures. Dr. Tejeda is currently accepting new patients who are looking for a skilled doctor with whom they can be at ease.
