Dr. Diana Weihs started practice in Austin with her friend and medical school classmate, Dr. Karen Swenson, in 1985. She provides women with gynecological and obstetrical care of all types, including menopausal issues, adolescent care, and high-risk obstetrics. Her philosophy of care emphasizes active patient participation, shared decision making, and empathetic, direct communication. She has been consistently rated a “Super Doctor” by Texas Monthly and one of “Austin’s Best Doctors” by Austin Monthly.
After earning a BA in English from Rice University, she went on to pursue medical training at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. She completed her training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio in 1985. She was board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1988, and is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
She has provided care for those less fortunate through Seton Community Clinics and Project Access throughout her practice. Her work on the Perinatal Safety Committee at Seton Medical Center over the last 8 years has been particularly rewarding: the already low birth-trauma rate at Seton has been reduced to a negligible level. She is an active supporter of women’s health and rights, and has gladly worked with Planned Parenthood and its services over the past 10 years.
She and her husband, James Tai, are proud and happy parents of 4 young adult children, all of whom were born at Seton Medical Center. Parenting has been an amazing and wonderful adventure! They love to travel to visit their kids in their various habitats, and to national parks for hiking and nature.
