Judith Blackwell MD, FACOG
Dr. Blackwell first considered a career as a physician when, in the third grade, she read a small book about Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States. In middle school she volunteered at Hillcrest Hospital where she quickly realized the medical field was for her.
Dr. Blackwell is a Tulsa native who graduated from Hale High School. She attended the University of Oklahoma, majoring in Psychology. Soon thereafter the OU College of Medicine accepted her into its program and eventually she settled on the specialty of women’s health and reproduction. Dr. Blackwell had a strong interest in women’s health and foresaw a beautiful blend of treating the whole patient—mind, body and spirit.
Dr. Blackwell completed her OB-Gyn residency at The University of Utah where she gained invaluable training in laser and laparoscopic surgery. She completed a second residency in Internal Medicine at The University of Oklahoma and completed an Endocrinology Fellowship at the University of Texas, San Antonio, with an emphasis in reproductive endocrinology.
Professionally, Dr. Blackwell has extensive experience in the area of infertility but currently limits that portion of her practice to helping patients with ovulatory problems or providing an overall assessment. She does not provide IVF services. Dr. Blackwell joined The Women’s Health Group in May 2013 as a part-time physician who focuses on gynecology, menopause and reproductive endocrinology for patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome, Turner’s syndrome, premature menopause and recurrent pregnancy loss.
Dr. Blackwell is board certified in Endocrinology, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Internal Medicine. She is a member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, American Society of Gynecologic and Laparoscopic Surgeons, American Medical Association and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. She is also a Clinical Professor on the faculty of the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.
Dr. Blackwell’s personal interests include supporting the Janada Batchelor Foundation for Children and it’s orphanage for girls in Tanzania, Africa, and Neighbor-for-Neighbor. Her hobbies include being the “oldest mom” of a high school student, keeping track of her college-age son and volunteering with the North Tulsa Development Foundation. She enjoys gardening, music and learning to play golf with her husband, Robert. Judith’s only unfulfilled dream is to have had a daughter. However, she happily enjoys the daughters of friends who fill that pink spot, along with her female Labrador named Charlie.
