Dr. Melissa Grier is a native Michigander. She received her undergraduate degree at a small school in Michigan by the name of Andrews University in 1997.
She entered medical school at the University of Michigan Medical School, graduating in 2001. Her medical school experience was very exciting, providing exposure to all of the very exciting fields of medicine. In that environment she decided that she would like to pursue Obstetrics and Gynecology as a career. It was evident to her that women's health is an area in need of providers devoted to promoting the special needs of women.
Dedicated to pursuing such a career, she relocated to Los Angeles, California in 2001 where she received training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Southern California. Her residency training experience was a very fulfilling time where she had the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of so many women in need. It was an experience where she learned the importance of implementing compassion with good clinical judgment under the strain of a busy county hospital. During residency, she also conducted research evaluating the normal range of estrogen levels in postmenopausal women with the objective of furthering our understanding of menopause.
In 2005 she began private practice in Pasadena, California using her past experiences to provide service to the women of that community. Her continued objective is to provide women’s health services in the community. Her special interests include: female pelvic floor dysfunction, urinary incontinence evaluation and treatment, interstitial cystitis; basic infertility work up and treatment to including ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination; all aspects of dysfunctional uterine bleeding and its workup including hydrosonography, diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy; family planning and contraception; menopausal symptoms and treatment of the menopausal women; cervical dysplasia and it’s treatment; and the care of high risk pregnancies. Special surgical interests include an interest to offer minimally invasive surgery via laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. Underscoring this objective is the ideal of practicing evidence-based medicine and compassion with a foundation in the ethical ideals of medical practice. …
