About Ann Marie Raffo, MD

“Cultivating patient trust and empowerment through educated care.”

Dr. Raffo received a Bachelor of Science degree from Agnes Scott College (a small women`s college in Georgia). She received her medical degree from University of California, Irvine, where she also completed her residency training. Dr. Raffo has been in practice with Orange Coast Women`s Medical Group since 1997.

“The excitement and diversity of obstetrics and gynecology is what attracted me to this specialty. I find it very rewarding to help my patients with their individual medical needs. Part of my responsibility as a physician is to provide education and options to my patients. I believe each patient has the right to be the ultimate decision maker in her own care. This can only be achieved if she understands the necessary information and has a mutually trusting relationship with her doctor.”

 “The rewards of educating and caring for women of all ages are immense. It is a privilege to be part of that unforgettable moment in a womans life as she gives birth. The close relationships I have formed with many of my patients bring me great satisfaction. As we journey through lifes experiences together, it is gratifying to play a role in womens healthcare. Being a mother and a wife helps me relate to many of the issues my patients face.”

Dr. Raffo has a special interest in high-risk obstetrics and laparoscopy. Originally from Alabama, she has been a resident of Orange County since 1985. She lives locally with her husband and two sons.

“Entertaining friends and family brings me great enjoyment. I also enjoy traveling. Much of my free time is spent watching my boys play sports, particularly football and baseball. A new passion of mine is exercising. I finally started to practice what I preach and I am feeling the benefits of more energy what all of us need more of.”
