Melissa Groves, MD, FACOG

Melissa Groves, MD"We are all patients at some point in our lives. Reflecting on those moments has helped me grow as a physician so that I can provide clear, compassionate and culturally sensitive care to my patients.  The times when I left a doctor's office uncertain about my plan of care, is something I do not want patients to experience. Informed patients make for motivated and healthy patients, which is what we are striving for. When we work together, the outcomes are always better."

Dr. Groves has a special expertise in normal and high risk obstetrics, contraceptive management, peri-menopause and menopausal issues and all forms of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. 

She is an advocate for “natural” childbirth and vaginal birth after cesarean deliveries. 

Dr. Groves graduated from college with a double major in Biology and Spanish and speaks fluent Spanish.
 In her free time, she enjoys traveling, international soccer, Latin American literature, cooking and spending time with family and her dog.
