Laurel practices in our Pearland office seeing both obstetric and gynecologic patients, performing well-woman exams and evaluating patients during problem visits. She is available for urgent same-day visits and is also trained in ultrasound. Patients coming to Dr. Ohlemacher or Gibson for their first pregnancy visit meet with Laurel for their initial consultation, exam, screening labs and ultrasound.
Laurel spends most of her non-working hours with her three amazing daughters either at the dance studio, music lessons, playing outside or helping them complete homework. She also enjoys hiking, listening to live music and spending time with family and friends.
