MeLanie Modjoros, MD
Dr. Modjoros is a graduate of Cornell University and University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine. Following medical school, she pursued clinical training at Medical College of Virginia where she earned board certification in Internal Medicine, with a specialty in Women’s Health. Following her residency, she spent several years in private practice providing office-based gynecology services to the Northern Virginia community.
Over time, Dr. Modjoros noticed that her patients with chronic vaginitis, vulvar pain and sexual dysfunction were very frustrated, and often hopeless. They felt their body had turned against them. Many were discouraged because previous medical providers had minimized their symptoms or suggested the pain was “all in their head.” Secretly, they feared that nobody could help relieve their private pain, and that it would be life-long. These patients struggled to find answers. This led Dr. Modjoros to pursue additional training in vulvar pain and sexual medicine, and ultimately to join to Gynecology and Wellness Center.
Dr. Modjoros knows that women with vaginal pain and/or sexual dysfunction often suffer in silence, wanting help but afraid to ask another doctor about it. This type of female pain and dysfunction can negatively impact a woman’s role as a partner, lover, wife, mother, and individual. Dr. Modjoros has an extensive understanding of female physiology and vulvar pain syndromes. She also has expertise in managing contraception, irregular bleeding, vaginitis, and pelvic pain. Her goal is to help women effectively treat their pain and regain their full sexual function.
Dr. Modjoros is committed to promoting health, not just treating disease. Her holistic style incorporates management of diet, lifestyle, medications and other related factors. Strong prescription pain medications are not the best treatment for chronic pain syndromes. Over time, these medications often make the pain worse!
Dr. Modjoros uses a multidisciplinary approach to help her patients achieve their health and sexuality goals. She knows that a pain-free and happy sex life (with or without a partner) leads to improved general health, vitality, longevity and overall life satisfaction – what every woman deserves!
