Dr. Limas then attended the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston where she obtained her Medical Doctor degree in 2009. During those four years in medical school she was privileged to experience many different areas of medicine and during her OB/GYN rotation, she fell in love with women’s health. Dr. Limas enjoyed the satisfaction of improving the life of many women, spending time explaining their conditions, and ultimately having a great impact in each of the lives of the women and their families. The variety she found in the OB/GYN field gave her the opportunity to integrate surgery, preventive medicine, education to women plus experiencing the miracle of pregnancy and delivery. She stayed at the University for the residency program and completed the Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences Specialty in 2013. She enjoys working in the Rio Grande Valley caring for women of all ages. Her medical interest include minimally invasive gynecological surgery and high risk pregnancies.
