Obstetrics & Gynecology


Since the birth of my daughter a couple of years ago, I am still so grateful for the care I received (and still continue to) from Christine and Allison. I felt heard, understood, and deeply cared for before being pregnant, during prenatal care, birth and beyond. Every woman should have a midwife (or two)!” –Kristen

I cannot speak highly enough about the doctors and how important the relationship is. Dr Schurr delivered both of my daughters and Dr Melius was there when I had complications after the birth of my 2nd daughter. They treat you like you are part of the family and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.” –Breinne


My husband had actually found out about doctors Melius, Schurr and Cardwell, and told me to call. Best phone call I've ever made. The entire staff was beyond friendly and helpful. When the time came to have my children, the doctors were ready, even in the middle of the night. Even after my children, they took the time to help figure out what was going on with my reproductive organs. They spent days, even months working with me regularly to figure out the best solution. To this day, I still tell everybody I can how wonderful this clinic is.” –Amanda

I knew there was a good chance I would need a C-section for medical reasons, and I knew that most midwives don’t work with C-section births. However, halfway through my pregnancy I learned about gentle cesarean and after some research I found that Christine from The Madison Midwives was now working collaboratively with the OB/GYN's at Physicians for Women to provide women with this type of delivery. Christine and Dr. Melius helped me to bring my daughter into the world with such a caring demeanor.” –Carrie

Physicians for Women also has Midwives so patients have access to midwifery services if they desire.

Well-woman exams are a cornerstone of the practice, and top-quality obstetrics care is another area of specialty. Services range from in-office hysteroscopy and colposcopy to minor gynecologic surgical procedures. Full-spectrum ultrasound 4D technology with the Voluson® platform delivers outstanding imaging.

The practice motto is, “It’s not the number of women we treat, it’s how we treat women.” In an environment in which healthcare is becoming more rushed and less personalized, the specialists at Physicians for Women embrace a more traditional approach in which doctors get to know the women in their care and build relationships that endure through the phases of life.
