Biography

Dr. Lauren Hoffman Hernandez has a passion for women’s health and strives to deliver the highest level of care to her patients. She enjoys all aspects of obstetrics and gynecology, from routine office gynecology to normal and high risk pregnancy care, and complex gynecologic surgery. She sees it as an honor to care for women during pregnancy, through labor and delivery, and in the postpartum period. Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery is a special interest of hers, which enables patients to promptly recover and achieve a higher quality of life. She treats each woman with compassion, considering all aspects of each patient’s life.

Dr. Hernandez was the valedictorian of Kingwood High School’s 2003 graduating class. She then completed her undergraduate studies at The University of Notre Dame, where she graduated summa cum laude in 2007. She returned to Texas for medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, where she received the Houston Gynecological and Obstetrical Society’s Outstanding Medical Student award. After completion of medical school in 2011, she moved to Chicago for her obstetrics and gynecology residency at Loyola University Medical Center. Graduating from residency in 2015, she received The Society for Academic Specialists in General Obstetrics and Gynecology Rising Star award, and joined the faculty at Loyola, where she practiced for two years. She is thrilled to return to her hometown of Kingwood with her family and practice obstetrics and gynecology at Northeast OB/GYN Associates.
