Kathryn A. Tweedy, MD

Physician

Biography/Personal

Dr. Kathryn Tweedy describes herself as “easy to talk to.” She’s pleased that her patients often tell her about what’s going in their lives, even if it has nothing to do with ob/gyn. Her ability to listen, with compassion, makes all the difference. “Knowing that your doctor really hears you is just as important to patients as the medical care they receive,” she says.

Dr. Tweedy majored in English literature, and still reads “everything.” As an M.D., it’s no surprise where she finds her inspiration: “Every patient has a story that tells me who they are, how they see the world, and what kind of health care they need,” she says. “I’m inspired by those stories every day.”

She decided to become an ob/gyn during a college mission trip to the Dominican Republic. “That’s when I saw a birth for the first time,” she says, “and I thought, ‘Wow!’ ” She did triage for a team of doctors, nurses, and dentists, listening to patients tell their stories in Spanish. “It was great and awful at the same time,” she says. “People walked barefoot all the way from Haiti to get medical care in our little mountain town in the Dominican Republic. So many people were lined up, and there was no way we could see them all.”

“I love the variety of my job—every day is unpredictable. But I also love the continuity. I’ve got moms whose daughters now come to see me. I love seeing families; it’s really fun.”

Dr. Tweedy is married with 4 stepchildren and enjoys cooking, running, reading and travel.

Working at Southdale ObGyn is great, she says, because “we’re all on the same page. When I’m not on call, I just don’t worry. I know that if one of my patients has a problem on my day off, any one of my partners will take care of her just like I would.”
