Finding Black doctors in Pittsburgh is like finding a needle in a haystack. Or so it may seem. Just about every week a mom post in the Pittsburgh Brown Mamas Facebook group and ask “Does anyone know of a Black doctor”? It’s been years in the making, but I finally am getting it done. Check out this list of Black doctors in the Pittsburgh region as compiled courtesy of the moms of Pittsburgh Brown Mamas.

  • Hello! Tried to find Dr. Margaret Larkins Pettigrew. The number listed was a non working number. Does anyone have a more recent number for her?

  • Dr. Alvarado-Reagans is an amazingly skilled OB/GYN in AHN system. I was lucky enough to find her when I moved to Pittsburgh years ago. The care I receive from her and her practice is great! She is patient, compassionate, and professional. I have never felt rushed and takes time to explain information and involve her patients with their care.

    She has several offices in the area:

  • Dr. Marvin Mcgowan
    Family Practice
    Specialist in LGBT health

    Also heck out the “Gateway medical Society” of black doctors in Pittsburgh!

  • I have a black primary care physician by the name of Dr. Herbert Bazron. He is the nicest and most caring doctor I have ever had in my life. He listens and offers advice and when I walked into his office, the receptionist reminded me of one of my “aunties.”Such a great feeling.

  • Dr Amaris Yandel, OB/GYN, Dr Juanita Thorpe, Podiatrist, Dr. Leon Williams,Dentist -East Liberty Family Health Care Center.
    Dr. Stephen Wilson, UPMC Mathilda Theiss

  • I hope nobody ever needs him, but surgical oncologist Dr. Steven Evans at Shadyside Hospital is excellent.

  • Dr. Esa Davis (internal medicine) and Dr. Jeannette South-Paul (family medicine): both phenomenal women. Elohu Ufomata is also incredible.

  • My kids pediatrician is black. Her name is Dr. Dannika Wallace and she works out of Children’s Community Pediatrics. She is absolutely amazing, especially with special needs kids!

  • Dr. Esa Davis is my PCP and Gyne at UPMC Montefiore General Medicine. I didn’t have health insurance when I began seeing her at General Medicine…I was able to apply for UPMC financial assistance once denied for Medicaid. They covered 80% of my bill. Dr. Davis is very difficult to get an appointment with, but is soooo worth the wait!!

  • Dr.Eloho Ufomata- specializing in primary care, women’s health and transgender health

  • Dr. Eloho Ufomata- Internal Medicine, specializing in primary care, women’s health and transgender health

  • Nikia Tucker is a black Nurse Practitioner who works at Adagio and Allegheny Reproductive Health Center!

    Dr Larkins-Pettigrew is not working in Pittsburgh but we are always hoping she will come back!

  • Atlas Counseling Services – Dr. Darla Timbo, 412-855-6630,

  • Cameron’s Counseling & Consulting – Eletta Cameron 412.403.8196, she has been a major help for my family & I
    both joint & individual sessions.

  • I’m a black child psychiatrist. You should list me but note that I am close to retirement so am taking a limited number of patients ( planning to retired sometime within the next 5 years). People can still call because I do have openings now and them. My bio:
    Claire M. Cohen, M.D,
    4701 Baptist Road.
    Pittsburgh, PA 15227

    There is another Black child psychiatrist, Barbara Johnson, M.D. she is not practicing right now. She is working for an insurance company. She is about ten years younger than I am. I am trying to convince her to open a small practice. I will ask her if she wants to be listed.
