Leslie L. Davis
M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

We’re not surprised that Dr. Davis says she’s inspired by the optimism and work ethic that her three children demonstrate. They grew up with an incredible example, and all of her colleagues at VPFW would say she inspires them for the same reason. She displays incredible dedication to her patients and their medical needs every day.

Now that her children have grown and are making their way in the world, Dr. Davis enjoys spending time with her husband Patrick, visiting Smith Mountain Lake, exercising, reading and trying out new recipes. She grew up in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York, and she enjoys that living in Richmond keeps her close to mountains so that adventure is never far away.

“Two words: kind and thorough! After a horrible experience with another OBGYN in Richmond, a friend recommended Dr. Davis to me. She was compassionate and patient with me. Before my exam, we met in her office where we talked about my concerns/symptoms. She made me feel extremely comfortable…so much that I became emotional. When I finally pulled myself together, she led me to the exam room. When she came back into the room, she asked if she could give me hug…exactly what I needed! Aside from having great bedside manners, she’s extremely competent. I was having issues for years and all my other doctors chalked it up to side effects of the pill. She didn’t take that route and issued an ultra-sound. After 4 yrs, I finally got answers.” – Rate MDs Review, 2010
