My name is Dr. Melanie Nathan and I am an
obstetrician and gynecologist and I work for North Shore Physicians Group in the Salem
office and the Danvers office. I was trained down at the University of South
Florida in Tampa where I went to medical school and then I came up here for a residency in
obstetrics and gynecology. I have clinical interests in the pediatric and adolescent
population. I really strive to work with pediatricians
to ensure that their patients are developing normally and answer questions that are beyond
the scope of their practice. I joined North Shore Physicians Group because
I wanted to join a community practice where I could practice medicine in the community
in which me and my family live. There are definitely a lot of benefits in
being part of the North Shore Physicians Group practice. I always feel supported when I am
taking care of my patients. I have an affiliation with Mass General, although
we strive to take care of patients in their own communities and keep them close to their
families, we also have the support if we need it for our sick patients.
Another benefit to being part of North Shore Physicians Group is that we do have an electronic
medical record and we can get all the records easily from Mass General, from the entire
Partners System and therefore it is more helpful for taking care of our patients.
I would like to have long-term relationships with my patients. I do provide continuity
of care and I like to follow them throughout their lives and celebrate the good times but
also help them through their hardships and any sort of medical issues that they have.
