Dr. Leah E. Low is a Texas native and completed all of her academic and medical training in the University of Texas educational system.  Her educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in both Chemistry and Psychology from The University of Texas at Austin and an M.D. degree and internship/residency from The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. During her internship and residency in Internal Medicine at The University of Texas Medical Branch, she was nominated for Outstanding Resident Performance in the TDCJ and awarded Outstanding Intern Performance in Clinic. She was also elected and served as both Secretary and President of the House Officers Association.

Dr. Low joined the UTMB faculty as Assistant Professor of General Internal Medicine. Currently, she is working as a Hospitalist and attends on the wards at Jennie Sealy hospital. She was appointed Medical Director of several of the inpatient units at John Sealy Hospital which allows her to work closely with the nursing staff and care management to focus on patient safety, satisfaction, and implement necessary changes. She is a member of the Hospital Leadership Council, the Utilization Review Committee, and is the divisional representative for Quality Improvement. She gained training in the field of health care quality by attending the UTMB Clinical Safety and Effectiveness course. Some of her current quality improvement projects include: improving length of stay on the Internal Medicine ward services, improving patient satisfaction through distribution of team face sheets, and reducing medication dosing error in patients with impaired renal function.

Additionally, Dr. Low enjoys working very closely with the medical school and residency program helping to educate many of our future doctors and specialists. She serves as one of the Associate Program Directors of the Internal Medicine Residency Program, a position she was honored to accept. She also teaches the medical students on the wards and periodically in their first year Practice of Medicine Course.

My visit was to follow-up on iron and CBC lab results. I left the copy I printed off MyChart at home so asked Dr. Low to check my RBC level and see if it was in range. She had a hard time finding the lab results but finally said she found them and my RBC was fine. When I got home I read my copy and my RBC is below the low end of range. I also told her I was concerned about the recent study reporting that PPI's (Prilosec) can lower kidney function and asked what I can take for GERD besides PPI's since I had kidney cancer and only have one kidney. She got off subject and never answered. I have emailed her these two concerns but haven't heard back so will re-send my email. Dr. Low usually answers all my questions and looks up anything she is unsure about. She is an intelligent, caring doctor who goes that extra mile for me. I think her mind might have been elsewhere on part of my visit.Mar 9 2016
The healthcare provider was good, however, I sat in the patient room for about 45 - 50 minutes waiting to be see by the physician. I honestly thought they had forgotten I was in there. It would have been appropriate for someone to come let me know she was running behind schedule. I ran over there on my lunch break and felt that I was rushed because I didn't have much time left to speak with her.Mar 9 2016
Had a great experience this year! Last year I didn't get to speak to the doc - my appointment took too long.Feb 17 2016
