Nichole Mahnert, MD

Obstetrics and Gynecology, Telemedicine

Physician, Banner - University Medical Center Phoenix - Banner - University Medicine Multispecialty Clinic
I became a doctor because I wanted to take care of women throughout their lives, which is an exceptional privilege. I have advanced fellowship training in the medical and surgical treatment of endometriosis, abnormal vaginal bleeding, and fibroids. When needed, I advocate for minimally invasive surgery (vaginal, laparoscopic, and hysteroscopic). I prefer a holistic approach in my practice and like to work with my patients together to make the best treatment plan for their individual needs.
