Congratulations to Dr. Lynley Durrett and Dr. Obiamaka Mora on ranking amongst metro Atlanta’s Top Doctors in Atlanta magazine’s July issue! 

Dr. Durrett has been practicing obstetrics and gynecology for more than 20 years and has been annually recognized as a Top Doctor in the publication since 2010. 

Dr. Mora joined McDaniel & Durrett Gynecology in 2012 and oversaw the transition to Avant Gynecology in 2018. 

Both Dr. Durrett and Dr. Mora are currently seeing and accepting new patients at the Buckhead and Northside offices, located on the Piedmont Hospital and Northside Hospital campuses, respectively. 

Atlanta magazine uses a database of top doctors compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., an established healthcare research company based in New York, to assist in its annual effort. Doctors are nominated for consideration through both a nationwide survey and a peer nomination process. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers then select the Top Doctors through a rigorous screening process that includes an evaluation of educational and professional experience. This year the publication honors 1,002 of these physicians representing the following counties: Fulton, Cobb, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Hall, Forsyth, Cherokee, and Rockdale. 

“It’s an honor and a privilege to receive the Top Doctors recognition, and I’m proud to be among such talent,” says Dr. Durrett. “However, the true reward in healthcare comes from the patients themselves, who put their faith in you and give you the privilege to provide care.”

Dr. Mora echoes those sentiments. “Being able to treat women at all stages of life is incredibly gratifying,” she explains. “I’m forever grateful for that opportunity, and the chance to be a part of a practice at the forefront of women’s health and gynecology surgery.”

Dr. Durrett’s professional expertise includes minimally invasive and robotic surgery techniques with interests in vaginal prolapse treatment, management urological conditions, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. She is a member of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), American Medical Association (AMA), Medical Association of Georgia, American Minimally Invasive Surgery Society, Atlanta OB/GYN Society, Georgia OB/GYN Society and American Academy of Anti-Aging, a society of physicians and scientists dedicated to enhancing the quality and extending the length of the human lifespan. 

Dr. Mora’s professional expertise includes minimally invasive and robotic surgery techniques with interests in pelvic reconstructive surgery, symptomatic fibroid management, endometriosis management, and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. She is a member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL), and the Georgia OB/GYN Society.
