In 1994, Dr. Somaiya received her undergraduate degree in Biology from The University of Houston and earned her medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in 1999.  She completed her residency program in Obstetrics and Gynecology at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston shortly before coming to Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. 

Professional A​​ssociations

Hobb​ies and Interests

When she's not caring for patients, Dr. Somaiya enjoys giving back to the community by volunteering her medical services in local clinics, as well as in Guatemala on a regular basis. She also enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and gourmet cooking.​​​​
Dr. Somaiya's interests also include global and international women's health and she's involved in international projects. She enjoys serving as a mentor to high school and medical school students. ​​

​From a patient's perspective, I believe knowledge is power. Patient education about prevention of disease is key. I believe that once a patient understands her body, and the pros and cons of different treatment options, she is empowered to make good choices. We can then form a strong partnership and optimize her health.
