All of our Clinicians are Welcoming New Patients

We are thrilled to now be accepting Unity/Quartz insurance!  This is the birth of a new era for our clinic and we are proud to offer access to this new patient population!  We know that the new year can mean new insurance plans for patients and it can be stressful finding a new primary care physician.  We have openings with all of our providers and all of their practices are welcoming new patients.  Our focus is on caring for women and you receive the same personalized, relationship based superior healthcare with any of our providers.  We are committed to providing women with options that fit their goals for healthcare and have services in Internal Medicine, OB/GYN and Midwifery.  Our clinicians in any of these areas can provide general healthcare and can be selected as a primary care provider with your insurance plan.  Read more about each of them on their individual page links above and call 608-227-7007 to schedule a meet and greet with any of our clinicians today.




Each woman has a different story and we work closely with our patients to understand their needs and their health so that we can give personalized, exceptional care to each of our patients.

Latest News

Times are changing and so are our clinics.  When doctors Melius, Schurr and Cardwell started this practice over 15 years ago their goal was to have a small practice providing very personalized care for women in a setting that was comfortable and convenient.  Over the years we have grown into a bigger building, multiple locations and a larger group of clinicians.  In the new year as we have reflected upon our success and after listening to feedback from patients and staff we have made the decision to refocus our energy where it all started.  We will be practicing out of our Fitchburg location only as of March 31, 2016. 


We know that we have created a clinic that can offer the convenience to our patients of having obstetrics, gynecology, midwifery, internal medicine, ultrasound, labs and in office procedures all in one place.  Our other locations did not offer this convenience and did not line up with our goal of providing convenient, thorough care with all of the tools to provide accurate diagnosis.  We are confident that our focus on the Fitchburg clinic and the options for midwifery services with Christine Kern Steffen and Allison Scholl of The Madison Midwives, internal medicine services with Dr. Patricia Kraemer and obstetrics/gynecological services with doctors Melius, Schurr and Cardwell will provide us the opportunity to continue to provide our patients with the highest quality of care.
