About Dr. Speach

She received her medical degree from SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY, followed by residency in family medicine at St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, also in Syracuse. She received her undergraduate degree at Union College in Schenectady, and her master’s degree in the Natural Sciences at SUNY Buffalo@ Roswell Park Memorial Institute. Dr. Speach has practiced outpatient primary care in both group and solo practice. She also has experience in hospital medicine, nursing home/geriatric care, and correctional medicine.

Dr. Speach is a Diplomate of the American Board of Family Medicine, a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the New York State Academy of Family Physicians. She is a founding member and past president of the Finger Lakes Guild of the Catholic Medical Association. In 2013 she completed training at Pope Paul VI Institute to become a Natural Family Planning Medical Consultant, which allowed her to incorporate NaProTechnology techniques into her primary care outpatient practice. She completed training as a FEMM medical consultant in 2021. Using these techniques, she has treated a variety of women’s health issues, including infertility, recurrent miscarriage, painful periods, PMS, ovarian cysts, abnormal bleeding, PCOS, and hormonal abnormalities, in a manner that is consistent with Catholic bioethical principles. She has been a strong advocate of fertility awareness-based methods of family planning to her patients and the lay and medical communities. Her medical interests also include obesity and weight management.

Dr. Speach lives in Pittsford, NY, with her physician husband, and their German Shepherd dog. They have 4 adult children with growing families, who visit often enough to keep the house full!

Patient Testimonials

My experience with MyCatholicDoctor was one of the best I have ever had in healthcare. I worked with Dr. Speach to identify and treat a reproductive health issue that went undiagnosed for many years. Through a series of video consultations, she was able to order necessary lab tests, ultrasounds, and ultimately prescribe medication that has me feeling the healthiest I have in a very long time.  -Anne
