About Me

A career in medicine could be considered a tradition in the family of Amal Salama, DO. Her mother was a registered nurse, and her father practiced as an OB/GYN in Worthington, MN — her hometown.

Today, Dr. Salama serves in her own obstetrics and gynecology practice at Avera Medical Group Obstetrics & Gynecology in Sioux Falls, SD.

“The wonderful thing about obstetrics and gynecology is that I get to care for people on their own personal journeys,” said Dr. Salama. Her days are filled with everything from exams to baby deliveries to surgery.

Expert Care in Obstetrics and Gynecology

As an OB/GYN, Dr. Salama cares for women’s health concerns — no matter their age. Some of her specialties include:

  • Annual women’s health exams, including Pap tests
  • Gynecologic surgery, including minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures
  • Prenatal care and postnatal care
  • Pregnancy and birth

“My goal is to treat my patients as if they were my very own family members,” said Dr. Salama.

Active Lifestyle

One of her favorite hobbies is traveling, and she tries to explore as many new places as possible.

“Because my father grew up in Egypt and my mother grew up in Ireland, one could say that traveling is instilled in me,” said Dr. Salama.

As mentioned, I cannot say enough about Dr Salama, my entire pregnancy she made me feel heard and showed concern for every step, always giving me time. Postpartum has been the same, seeming to really listen to care.

Dr Salama explains everything well, ensured we had a plan in place and discussed what next steps would be based on results. She always has a warm smile to greet you with.

Dr Salama always takes her time and never makes me feel rushed. She always asks multiple times if I have any questions. I do wish she brought up more explanation or alternatives to certain upcoming treatments in my pregnancy, but she never makes me feel that it's not a option to talk through. She's great and I'd highly recommend her
