Grant Cox is excited to be a part creating OB/GYN Specialists of Tulsa. He brings to the practice considerable knowledge and skill in all aspects of OB/GYN, especially infertility and gynecologic surgery. He finds it most rewarding when he can help an infertile couple or a patient with recurrent miscarriages conceive and carry a baby to birth. He feels that all deliveries are special, but those couples that have been through challenges create a moment of absolute awe when they hold their baby for the first time.
Dr. Cox received his undergraduate degree in 1992 from Northeastern State University. In 1996, he completed his Doctor of Medicine at the University of Oklahoma and continued his education over the next four years as an intern and resident in Obstetrics and Gynecology through the University of Oklahoma.
Dr. Cox earned his board certification in 2003 through the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He is licensed to practice OB/GYN through the State of Oklahoma.
Dr. Cox has been honored as an officer within the American College of OB/GYN on a state and district level. He feels that it is very important for an obstetrician who sees patients every day to assist with the implementation of policicy on a national level. Also, through the ACOG organization, Grant has been very involved in programs reducing teen pregnancies throughout Oklahoma. He is very passionate about making sure our teens and young adults make good choices. Dr.Cox is one of the early adopters of a new type of adolescent visit that almost never requires a pelvic exam. He wants adolescent females to learn about their gynecological health without feeling threatened or having a difficult experience.
Grant and his wife live in midtown Tulsa and are the parents of boy/girl twins. His personal experience as a husband whose wife delivered prematurely, and as the parent of children who spent their first days in the neonatal intensive care unit, has only caused him to be a much more compassionate obstetrician.
Dr. Paul Gehring moved to Tulsa in 1994 with his wife, Dr. Gena Gray. He originally practiced at an infertility clinic to pursue his interest in reproductive surgery. After three years, he missed doing all aspects of OB/GYN and joined a full-time OB/GYN practice where he held many administrative positions. He is beyond excited about starting OB/GYN Specialists of Tulsa, where he can utilize his practical knowledge to create the best possible patient experience.
He has been privileged to personally hand countless newborns to their excited parents and plans to continue pursuing new and safer approaches to GYN surgery with shorter recovery times. Dr Gehring’s additional training in gynecologic surgery has led him to be the first in Tulsa, Oklahoma to perform many new and innovative gynecologic procedures. He is fully trained and proficient in robotic surgery.
Dr. Gehring graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio in 1985. Four years later, he earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Cincinnati. He completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at one of the largest training programs in the country – Baylor College of Medicine. Following residency, he completed a fellowship in reproductive surgery at the Woman’s Hospital of Texas.
Dr. Gehring achieved his OB/GYN specialty board certification in 1996. He is currently a licensed physician through the State of Oklahoma and is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Dr. Gehring encourages all of his patients to take an active role in their healthcare journey and he makes his best effort to translate challenging medical jargon into understandable language with common-sense explanations.
Paul met his wife while they were interviewing for OB/GYN residency positions. He quickly became enamored and luckily was able to see her at another interview that fall. They planned a date and he initially thought he had been stood up when he realized that she was at a restaurant across the street. They had their date and he married Gena in 1990, during residency. They have four children together. He is very thankful for the practice of OB/GYN, because it has given him a profession as well as a wife and family.
Through his wife's pregnancies and deliveries, he felt the joys and fears of the pregnancy journey. During one pregnancy, his wife had a false positive test and he always remembers how that made them feel when he considers and interprets tests for his patients.
Paul has two children who still live at home and he enjoys being involved in their activities. He has been particularly active in Boy Scouts, including hiking trips throughout the country. He has two children in college and is proud of the young adults that they have become. He also likes listening to music and playing guitar. He is active in water and snow sports although his middle age has now made him a safer participant of both.
Doctor Gena Gray has been practicing OB/GYN in Tulsa for twenty-one years. She has touched the lives of thousands of women within northeastern Oklahoma. Having grown up in the small town of Stilwell, she has a strong identity with family and understands the importance of couples making the leap into parenthood. As the mother of four children, she realizes firsthand the challenges and blessings of starting a family.
Doctor Gray is very proud to have had the privilege of delivering two generations for some families. Her intent is to practice cutting-edge medicine while creating a relaxed, pleasant experience for her patients. She is typically a laid-back physician, but occasionally she will give specific recommendations that need to be followed.
Gena graduated from Northeastern State University in 1985. She later attended the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and completed her residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. During her residency, she married Doctor Paul Gehring who also practices at OB/GYN Specialists of Tulsa. She and Paul enjoy music, traveling, and keeping their four children on a level path.
Like most mothers, her interests include those of her family. Having two boys and two girls has allowed her to volunteer for almost every school activity possible. She constantly strives to make the community and school programs better; not only her children, but those of her peers as well.

Sarah and her husband, Scott, who is also a physician, have a daughter and a son. As a patient, she experienced the challenges of preterm labor and was admitted into the hospital on bed rest and delivered prematurely. Her daughter spent time in the NICU, and thankfully she is a healthy, sprite, young girl. She has since had a healthy, young boy at term, after surgery during the pregnancy. She feels that these personal experiences have created empathy and compassion that she can pass on to her patients. In her spare time, she enjoys running and lives in a house divided by her beloved Sooners and her husband’s Cowboys.
