What We Do

How We Are Different

Drs. Daran Parham and Melissa Dietz have devoted their entire professional lives to the service of women and their health care. 

  • At Utica Women's Specialists, we combine excellent medical care with superior personal service.

  • As a small practice, you will develop a personal relationship with your physician.

  • Our physicians and staff will return all phone calls the same day.

  • Our physicians schedule their own surgeries to avoid any errors.

  • Emergencies and deliveries happen. As a result, if we are running late or need to reschedule your appointment, we will notify you as soon as possible. We believe your time is important.

  • You will always be informed of test results in a timely manner, including mammograms, ultrasounds, and lab results.

  • If you call with an urgent problem, we will make every effort to see you immediately.

  • We provide your referring physician complete follow-up information after your visit.

  • We provide abdominal and vaginal 3D/4D ultrasounds in our office. Gender scanning is also available.

  • Our physicians are certified for the da Vinci robotic surgery system.

  • Other medical procedures provided in office are:

Endometrial Biopsies

Endometrial biopsy is a procedure in which a sample of the endometrium (tissue lining the inside of the uterus) is removed for microscopic examination.

Pelvic Ultrasounds

Pelvic ultrasound is a procedure where harmless, high-frequency sound waves are projected into the abdomen. These waves reflect off of the internal structures and create shadowy black and white pictures on a display screen.


Colposcopy is a procedure that allows a physician to take a closer look at a woman's cervix and vagina using a special instrument called a colposcope. It is used to check for pre-cancerous or abnormal areas. The colposcope can magnify the area between 10 and 40 times; some devices also can take photographs.


Cryosurgery involves freezing suspicious cells which then die and fall away. A probe called a cryoprobe is inserted through the vagina and placed on to the cervix.  The cervix is then cooled which freezes the cells.


During this procedure suspicious cells are removed for biopsy using a wire loop and the area is cauterized (burned). LEEP is both a diagnostic test and treatment.
