Kara Alina May McElligott, MD
I became a specialist in OB/GYN because I am dedicated to providing compassionate and individualized health care to women, no matter their reproductive choices, gender identity, race or ethnicity. I seek to provide evidence-based care for women during childbirth and throughout their lives. Outside of my work, I enjoy baking, frequenting local restaurants, and visiting the Durham Farmer's Market with my daughter.
