Qualifications and Experience
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.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Grier seems very kind and might have many patients in which there is some trouble managing an excess of appointments. Unfortunately, I waited 2 hours after my scheduled appointment time to actually see Dr. Grier. In which case, I was already half way out the door when we were able to speak for about 10min of which my insurance will now be charged. The medical service was very inefficient!
She is awesome and her staff is so warm and friendly.
Long wait and seems unorganized. Called me multiple times to set an appointment that I already had scheduled.
Very friendly, helpful staff! Great experience, would recommend.
Dr Grier is a professional and in her calm but expert way conveys her assessments and recommendations. I have confidence in her expertise and highly recommend her. She also has great staff.
melissa was really great. She's very pleasant and thorough and cares about your overall health.
I think she's a great doctor!!! Not to impressed with the wait time and seeing her. There were two people ahead of me and it took an hour and a half for me to be called to a room. Not one of the front desk women asked if we needed anything, no sorry for the delay or anything. I thought that was unprofessional
she was awesome as always and very positive I love doctor Grier. And I love her assistant too they make you feel at home.
Friendly and professional doctor and staff.
Very lovely staff. From the receptionist to the nurse to Dr.Grier everyone was incredibly accommodating and comforting. Very nice energy I would suggest her to anyone.
Easy to talk to. Professional and knowledgable.
She is very informative and helpful. Also she always makes sure you understand what she is doing and what she is explaining to you.
Melissa was great! Her and her staff were very friendly. I can't really comment on the wait time since I was the first patient of the day but I would highly recommend her. She was very good at letting me know what she was doing every step of the way.
Dr. Grier was amazing! She told me what she was doing every step of the way and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. She thoroughly answered all my questions and she has the best bedside manner I've ever seen. I would recommend her to everybody.
But it was my fault I didnot fill out the online medical info. Dr and her office staff were efficient and very helpful.

Dr. Grier is a wonderful, soft spoken, very knowledgeable Dr. She is very gentle with her physicals. And because of that I felt Very comfortable with her! I like her so much my girls go to her also! We all Love Dr. Grier!!!
While both the staff and doctor were friendly and cordial, the wait time to see her took over 2 hours and I never received a follow-up phone call regarding my test results. I'm unsure if I would go again but was okay with the experience.
Dr. Grier was wonderful! Really present, took her time answering question, and was very available and supportive. She literally makes me want to be an ob-gyn! The nurse, shamefully, I can't remember her name, was sweet and funny and lovely. This will be my permanent ob-gym doctors office. Can't recommend highly enough!
I just "love" Melissa. Shes very thorough.. considerate and professional. I felt at ease and comfortable in her office. She gave me a lot of information about my body at this age; made good suggestions. Her staff was fun.

Enjoyed my visit! I really liked Dr. Grier. She was easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable.
She was very friendly!
Dr. Grier is a thorough and thoughtful physician. She takes the time to ask all the right questions, and provides a good explanation for each issue. However, beware: if you are in a hurry, you will be late to your next appointment. I've been to her office twice, with appointments each time, and she's always running an hour late.
