Melissa Ann Kushlak, MPH, DO, FACOOG, is a highly experienced specialist
in obstetrics and gynecology. Originally from Michigan, she spent her
undergraduate years at Michigan State University in East Lansing, graduating
with a Bachelor of Science in zoology. She stayed on in Michigan to earn
a Master of Public Health from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor,
and then went to Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine
in East Lansing, graduating with a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree.
After completing her obstetrics and gynecological residency at Botsford
General Hospital in Farmington Hills, MI — where she was chief resident
and developed a strong proficiency in robotic and laparoscopic surgery
— Dr. Kushlak served as chief of the department of obstetrics and
gynecology at North Ottawa Community Hospital in Grand Haven, Michigan.
She then had wanderlust and decided to move to Fort Lauderdale, FL, where
she cared for patients in a private practice.
Missing the snow and change in seasons, Dr. Kushlak joined the team at
Boulder Women’s Care in January 2021, and now compassionately delivers
pre-conception, pregnancy and childbirth care, as well as the full spectrum
of health services for women of all ages — from yearly check-ups,
adolescent gynecology and contraceptive counseling to menopausal therapy
and pelvic prolapse treatments. Dr. Kushlak also brings to the Boulder
community valuable expertise in minimally invasive surgery, including
da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery.
As a board-certified gynecologist-obstetrician, Dr. Kushlak is a Fellow
of the American College of Osteopathic Obstetricians and Gynecologists
and a member of both the American Osteopathic Association and the American
Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. When not in the office, Dr.
Kushlak enjoys exploring the outdoors with her dog.
