Kelley Saunders, MD

I am dedicated to promoting health and wellness in coordination with my patients. I strive to deliver the highest quality of care with respect and compassion.

Nichole Mahnert, MD

Obstetrics and Gynecology

Physician, Banner – University Medicine Women’s Institute
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 treat plan for their individual needs.
