Shanna M. Combs, MD, FACOG, initially started out as a ballet dancer and received her undergraduate degree in ballet from Texas Christian University (TCU). After pursuing a career in ballet, Dr. Combs made the transition to her lifelong ambition of a career in medicine. Dr. Combs received her medical degree from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She then returned to Fort Worth, Texas, where she completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at John Peter Smith Hospital. She has continued her practice in Fort Worth, Texas, as an Obstetrician and Gynecologist since 2012. She has always enjoyed taking care of young patients in her practice and is excited to make the transition to Cook Children's and to be able to provide care to young ladies full time.
Dr. Combs has a passion for teaching and works in medical education. She is the Obstetrics and Gynecology Clerkship Director with the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine and has been an Assistant Professor for the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine since completing her residency.
Dr. Combs is happy to call Fort Worth home after many years of being an Air Force daughter and moving around. She loves supporting her TCU Horned Frogs as well as staying in touch with her ballet roots by supporting the School for Classical and Contemporary Dance at TCU and the Texas Ballet Theater. She is a proud dog and cat mom to Duke, Poppy, and Lucy, and she enjoys skiing, cycling, scuba diving and traveling.
