About Dr. Echeazu
Are you from the DC area?
I was born and raised in Chicago, IL and will certainly root for any sports team that hails from the area! However, my natural curiosity and thankfully the flexibility during my training led me out of the Midwest to many places including New Hampshire, Texas, Kansas, California, Arizona, New York, and I even lived in Ecuador for 1 month. Through all of these experiences it was reinforced how much I value diversity, learning about new cultures, and although unnamed – how much I love the DMV! After many years of visiting friends and family in this area I fell in love with it and discovered this is where I wanted to start growing roots and stay long term. You may find me cycling through the city, dining at a restaurant, or hiking along a trail – I love all that this area has to offer and feel free to say hello!
What inspired you to pursue a career in Obstetrics & Gynecology?
My intention of becoming a doctor has always been to become exactly what I am – an ObGyn. I think it started from my mother showing my sisters and I videos of our births. I was in awe, intrigued, filled with emotion, and I now know destined to do what I witnessed that day. I tried to keep an open mind for other specialties in medical school but my passion has always kept me where I belong. I absolutely love everything about what we have the honor of providing to our patients through Obstetrics and Gynecology and I do not take it for granted.
Do you have a hidden talent?
Yes, I can move my ears without touching them.
