Gretchen F Paranya, MD

Obstetrics and Gynecology
I started out my career path planning to be a scientist, however after working in a lab for a couple years, I realized that I needed a job with more human contact.  I switched to pursuing medicine and have never regretted it.  I was drawn to Women’s Health because of the variety it offers: getting to know patients through their yearly visits, performing surgery, and delivering babies.  I enjoy helping women through the unique situations and challenges that they face from adolescence to childbearing to menopause and everything in between.  My areas of clinical interest include minimally invasive surgery, pelvic pain, pelvic prolapse, and incontinence as well as prenatal care.  I try to learn about my patients’ lives so that I can see them as whole individuals and help them make healthcare decisions based on their own unique situations.  Helping my patients work through their health issues and come out in a better place gives me great satisfaction and delivering babies never gets old!  When I am not caring for my patients at work, you will find me caring for things at home including my three kids, cats, chickens, and vegetable garden.
