Brown Mamas’ List of Black Doctors in Pittsburgh

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.

    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.

    Dr. Esa Davis is my PCP and Gyne at UPMC Montefiore General Medicine.

Dr. Davis is very difficult to get an appointment with, but is soooo worth the wait!!

    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!
