Melissa Gutierrez, MD

Dr. Gutierrez is excited about coming back to Orange County where she grew up and where most of her immediate family resides.

"My father is a surgeon, and my sister is also a family medicine physician, both here in OC. I believe I'm a great listener, which in turn helps me better help my patients. I became a Family Medicine physician because I'm interested in the big picture of people's health; whole person care, including the effect of your mental health on your physical well-being."

Board certified in family medicine, Dr. Gutierrez has special interests in Diabetes and Women's Health.

Outside the office, she enjoys playing with her kids, reading, and watching basketball, tennis, "Top Chef" and "Project Runway." And when she can find the time, she loves to salsa dance.
