About Dr. Dara King, OBGYN
Dara N. King, MD is a native of Detroit, Michigan and now resides in Maryland. She attended the University of Michigan, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Biopsychology and Cognitive Sciences. She achieved her Doctor of Medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit and has been an OBGYN for over 18 years. She believes that women should be treated with respect and dignity when they are dealing with their most intimate moments.
As an physician, she has the honor of helping women feel empowered to take care
of their minds and bodies. Dr. King values and protects her patients’ trusts. She realizes her work is sensitive and her patients know that they are in a safe, judgment free space to share their goals and concerns.
Dr. Dara King has a great bedside manner. She is very easy to talk to as you would a friend, but also very professional. She does not rush while talking to you about your gynecological health. Nor does she force her view on you with fear. She is very patient and understanding. I have been with her for over two years and had to see her several times within that time. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes for my appointment; and more than 15 minutes once I was in the room to be seen by her.
… She is definitely an advocate for her patient, especially women of color who don’t have a voice and are often overlooked in obstetric medicine. She and her team literally hold your hand from positive pregnancy test until delivery and postpartum. My family and I are forever grateful for this woman and all that she does. She goes above and beyond. You will never feel alone during Covid, and even if you’re high-risk, trust her. She will never steer you wrong.”
This is the doctor who saved my life when I was pregnant. She did not judge me for my incessant morning sickness. She gave it a name, Hyperemesis Gravidarum. I lost 43lbs while carrying BB. Under Dr. King’s care, I was able to make it through.
Dr. King is an incredible colleague. I have had the pleasure of knowing her for over five years. I see her use her medical knowledge, kindness and strong work ethic to aid her patients to achieve the best outcomes. Moreover, Dr. King is a person dedicated to mentorship and she inspires those around her to seek the extraordinary in everything they do.
