Anh Nguyen Reiss
1967-2016
Anh Reiss, 48, remained a doctor in her final moments. She self-evaluated her heart rate as she lied in a hospital bed at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, where she died early Friday, February 26, after a nearly seven-year long fight with a blood cancer.
It's fitting that the mother of two would do so. She was a tireless worker in every facet of her life. She liked to roll up her sleeves and show the muscles she'd built by weightlifting. An OB/GYN who helped bring thousands of children into the world, she'd describe her deliveries down to the number of ounces a baby weighed.
Her husband, Joshua Reiss, and children, Alexandra, 24, and Aaron, 20, will remember her as a caring wife and mother who reveled as much in her own happiness — she loved learning new cooking techniques from the internet and reading books about anthropology and history — as she did the happiness of those around her.
Anh was born in South Vietnam. When she was a young girl growing up devoutly Catholic, her parents sent her to temporarily live with a group of nuns to see if she could one day become one. The nuns soon sent her home for being too loud.
Anh came to the United States with her family in 1975, as refugees at the end of the Vietnam War. While in a refugee neighborhood outside of New Orleans, she learned English in part by watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, and she sold food to neighbors to help support her family. By the time she was a teenager, she often took care of her siblings while her parents were at work. She also excelled in the classroom. She was salutatorian of North Shore High School.
In 1989, she graduated with a degree in economics from Rice University, where she met Josh. She was the first person in her family to graduate from college. Anh earned an M.D. degree cum laude from the State University of New York at Brooklyn and served her medical residency at New York University. After residency, Anh established her medical practice at Memorial Hermann Hospital-Southwest.
When Anh learned in 2009 that she had myleodysplastic syndrome, a pre-leukemic condition that can only be cured with a bone marrow transplant, she became a public face for the issue. Vietnamese people are some of the least-represented on the national registry. With a team tireless volunteers, Anh and her family helped more than double the number of registered Vietnamese bone marrow donors. Multiple patients found matches in people who Anh and her team registered.
Anh told her children she worked as hard as she did so that they could have more opportunities than she did growing up. Anh, Josh, Alexandra and Aaron traveled the world. They explored Vietnam and Cambodia, Italy and Istanbul. Her most recent trip was to Greece, as place she'd wanted to go to for years.
In addition to her husband and children, Anh is survived by both of her parents, Kinh and Son Nguyen; siblings Phuong, Hiep, Duong, John and Peter; and a near countless number of nieces, nephews, friends and patients whose lives she touched.
Friends are cordially invited to a visitation with the family from five o'clock in the afternoon until eight o'clock in the evening on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at the Bradshaw-Carter Home, 1734 West Alabama Street in Houston. The funeral service will be held at half past nine o'clock in the morning Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 3617 Milam Street in Houston.
In lieu of gifts or flowers, Anh's family asks people to donate to the Be The Match Foundation.

Omg. Mrs. Reiss. Where do I start? You were tough. Lol. You and Mrs.Herra took care of me, my first pregnancy 2012. Best time of my life. I wanted to go back to you for my second child in 2014 but I didn't get the chance to do that. I wish I did. Thank you for what you did to help bring my oldest into the world safely. It saddens me that I won't get the opportunity to see you again, but may you rest in peace. Much respect doctor.

I could say so much however my thoughts would be the same as everyone who has spoken. Anh (as I call her) was a purposely intended accident sent by God. After having 5 children, I had a Tubal and ended up having a tubal pregnancy 2 years later(2004). I was sent to the ER where I was first introduced to Dr. Anh Reiss for the first time. Her genuine character was kind, gentle, understanding, and compassionate. I've been with her ever since. Only God knew what gynecological issues I would go through from that moment on and through it all, she was a blessing. I know that our time here is mandated to our purpose and hers was completed. She is truly missed not just because she was a good doctor but also because she was a friend.

Dr. Anh Reiss was a great OB/GYN, she delivered 2 of my children. Very nice and professional. On point, funny, helpful and fast. She was the one that pointed out that my daughter's weight was 7/11 like the corner store. Little comedian, great sense of humor. She knew i was young, and scared. I can't believe she had to go through what she did. My condolences go to her husband and sons. I know it must be hard for South West Memorial Hospital. It's hard for me to see such a wonderful person that was good hearted in her career have to have to suffer. I called about a year ago to her office to schedule a appointment, with my new pregnancy since she had my chart and all.
All i can really say is rest in peace angel. Your soul will live in the children you brought in the world and all the women that you helped.

This is super hard for me. Last night I went to the ER for abdominal pain. Found out I have 2 fibroid tumors over 13cm in size each. Was informed I needed to have them removed sooner than later as my ovaries could not be located on a CT scan nor on 2 types of ultra sounds. The first person that came to mind was you Dr. Reiss. I wouldn't trust anyone else with this type of surgery. You delivered 2 of my kids Quelldon (16) and Corynn (10) and gave me the best care. I searched to see if you were still practicing at Southwest and oddly Google provided me with a phone number. I dialed and it was disconnected. I searched Google again and that's when I came across your obituary. I sat in my car read about your battle in disbelief and cried my eyes out. When I met you I was just 17 a senior in high school and pregnant with my 2nd child. You never made me feel ashamed. You were always so nice. I was 24 when I had my last child and I remember coming in for my visit and asked to sign those papers lol. You said what papers. I said Dr. Reiss although I love coming to visit you I can't keep making you rich, I am done having babies. You said but Satarre' you're still so young and you're married, what if you decide to have another. I told you I like shopping and want to travel, I can't do that with a bunch of babies lol. You then asked how you would stay in business. I told you I would send you plenty of business!! And that's exactly what I did. I always told people about you and referred them your way. When the ER doctor told me I had to have surgery I just knew you would be the one to do it and to my surprise you are no longer with us. I am so sorry to hear that you went through what you did but I remember your spirit and I know you fought with a smile. Your husband and children will continuously be in my prayers. Until we meet again......

Dr. Reiss deliveried my daughter who is is now 9 years old, she delivered her in 2009 she was a wonderful loving and kind person. She will be truly missed.

Wow! I met Dr Reiss in 2001. She delivered all 3 of my children and took care of my health. She also done 2 operations for me. Everything was a success. I remember her trying to find a Vietnamese bone donor. At that time she'd gotten her teeth fixed and was smiling more. I'd seen through the pain she knew the time was coming. Sad. She couldn't find a match. She raised a compaign and starred on the news because of it. She helped others to register and become donors. I hope others understand this is serious, be aware and help others no matter their circumstances

Just found out today while in the operating room and I can't stop the tears. She was my doctor and my friend. I loved my doctors visits just so I could chat with her after.

She called my now 6 year old son, a miracle baby- something that I've mentioned to him since birth.

I loved her dearly.

Anh was such a warm a caring woman. I was skeptical about finding a new OBGYN when I moved to Houston. However during my first visit she not only eased my concerns, she completely dispelled them and became a trusted friend. I will truly miss her. My sincerest condolences go out to her entire family.

I'm going to miss her soooo much. She was my OBGYN for 10 years plus and delivered my daughter. She was not only a loving doctor but she was a wonderful friend.

I send my prayers and condolences to the family.

She was a warm and kind person. She radiated with some contagious energy you couldn't describe. She was easy to talk to and she had an uncanny way of remembering faces even if you hadn't gone to her office in years. She was encouraging, supportive and optimistic. She was so caring you wanted her to be your mother. She was a doctor, a fantastic one at that. She delivered some of my nieces and nephews. We know you have gone to rest, you have done your part. You came, you saw and you conquered. Rest in peace Dr Anh Reiss. We love you and we already miss you so much. It is well with your soul my good doctor!

I looked her up on the providers' list of my new insurance in November for 2016 before I finalized my choice. And she was, with Memorial Hermann's Aetna. I called her office to make my annual Gyn appointment; the office recording was ominous. I just recently learned of her passing. Very, very sad. I liked her a lot. She was so sweet, upbeat, professional, and she never did once mention about her health struggles. I had a Gyn surgery performed by her in the past, never had problems with it. She was a skillful medical practitioner. I will miss her smile, kind disposition and expertise. I give my deepest sympathy and condolences to her husband Josh, children Alexandra and Aaron.

Dr. Reiss delivered my two sons and was my wife's OB/GYN since at least 2004. I believe she also performed her last surgery on my wife, on December 31, 2015, before she closed her practice. On the day of the surgery, we knew she was sick but did not know she was that close to the end. Even then, she only showed her concern for her patient and family, not herself. What a selfless person. She was always the coolest, best-dressed, sweetest, and most capable doctor around and was always able to calm the nerves of my wife, and even me, under difficult circumstances. She will be dearly missed by me, my wife, my two sons, and I'm sure her family, fellow doctors, nurses, and office staff. I am honored to have known her, even as just her patient's husband.

Love, Dylan Russell and for my wife, Skye, and sons, Ian and Trevor.

I am sooo sorry to learn about Ahn. I actually called today because I was several months behind on my OB Gyn appt. I heard the recording guiding me elsewhere. I did not have a good feeling. So tonight I googled and just found this sad news. I would have found a way to come to the service tonight if I had known and tomorrow I am still without transportation (car is in shop for major repair). Just know I am with you in spirit. I would always ask Ahn how she was doing when I went for my annual visits and she would always smile and say great! She was such a cool cat and a trooper in all ways. I have actually know Josh and Ahn since Rice days. So it was nice to see former students do so well and have contact with both through work and my healthcare. I know she loved you all very much. Just know that in the darkest skies the brightest stars shine and she is a brillant one. Praying and loving thoughts to all - including her Rice family.

Josh,
My sincere condolences to your entire family. What a tremendous woman Anh was. She was a true warrior until the very end and she set an example we can all look up to.
May your wonderful memories bring you comfort in this difficult hour.
Sincerely,
Stephanie Oehrlein
