Meet Kanisha L. Sierra Rios, MD, FACOG

Dr. Sierra-Rios was born and raised in Bayamon, Puerto Rico as the youngest of four girls in
a close-knit family. She attended Catholic School from kindergarten through high school and
received her Bachelors of Science Degree in biology from the University of Puerto Rico in
San Juan. Later she attended Ponce School of Medicine for her medical degree and the
University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine to complete her residency. During her
residency, she was awarded “Recognition of Excellence on Minimally Invasive Surgery” by

Dr. Sierra-Rios considers it a privilege to care for women throughout all the stages of their
life. Having the opportunity to be a surgeon and a primary care physician allows her to
provide exceptional care for her patients.
In her personal time, Dr. Sierra-Rios enjoys spending time with her husband of five years,
Jose. They enjoy the beach, golfing, traveling, music, food, and family. “I come from a tiny
island in the Caribbean with 3.5 million people. Starting our lives in Florida allowed us to feel
the same warmth and comfort we used to get back home. Moving here has also greatly
developed my career and skills by being surrounded by such a talented team. I am excited to
share my love and passion with every single one of my patients.”-Dr. Sierra Rios
