Dr. Kudzai Dombo was born in the US, but her parents moved to Zimbabwe at the age of eight. As a result, she grew up splitting her time between Rochester, New York and Harare, Zimbabwe.
Dr. Kudzai Dombo graduated from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and proceeded to attend Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, where she graduated in 2001.
As an obstetrician-gynecologist who did her residency training in the US in the early 2000s, Dr. Kudzai Dombo is very familiar with the concerns that arise with MHT/HRT. She recalls the echoes of “HRT can cause breast cancer and heart disease and can be a danger to patients,” after the WHI was published. But, the tides have turned, and now menopausal hormone therapy is considered the gold standard for symptom relief and longevity. She notes, there is so much additional benefit with nutrition, supplements, mindfulness and movement.
Dr. Kudzai Dombo is happy to advocate for her patients through this part of life that is typically overlooked.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, travel, and exercise.
