November 29, 2016

Conemaugh Physician Group – Obstetrics and Gynecology welcomes Denice Leonard, DO, to its practice.

Originally from Sapulpa, Oklahoma, Dr. Leonard moved to Pittsburgh to work for Allegheny General Hospital, followed by Geisinger Medical Center. Dr. Leonard chose to join Conemaugh Physician Group because of its strong leadership and clinical staff, and because it is closer to home.

"Maternity patients can have challenges at times but overall they are happy and healthy," says Dr. Leonard. "I'm honored to be part of their journey to welcome a new baby into their lives. It's rewarding to experience so many happy endings."

In addition to Maternity, Dr. Leonard is excited to be a part of the Gynecology team. "Gynecology offers the opportunity to care for a patient throughout her entire lifetime," says Dr. Leonard. "I develop long-term relationships that help to create a positive experience for each patient in an all encompassing field."

"Dr. Leonard will bring to our team years of experience in woman healthcare," says Dr. Adib Khouzami, maternal fetal medicine specialist and Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Conemaugh. "She will be an asset for women in our community."

Dr. Leonard received her bachelor’s and master’s degree at University of Oklahoma Health Science Center. She completed her doctorate degree at Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tulsa, Oklahoma, followed by an Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at St. Elizabeth Hospital Medical Center in Youngstown, Ohio. She is trained in robotic-assisted surgery.

When not treating patients, Dr. Leonard enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and beach vacations. She is a member of the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and performs with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
