Mitra Nassiraee, MD
Obstetrics & Gynecology
Dr. Mitra Nassiraee (Dr. Mitra to her patients and staff) came to Calvert County after completing her Residency in Eastern Virginia Medical Center, a tertiary center for high risk pregnancies. She had been looking at a couple of other, much larger hospitals around DC but really wanted to become part of a community and not just another doctor in a big practice. “Calvert just felt like a good place to raise my children.”
For Dr. Mitra, being an OB/GYN is in her blood – literally. Both her mother and father are OB/ GYNs, and she witnessed her first live delivery at the age of 11. “It was magical!”
“I always knew I wanted to be a doctor like my parents, but that I might choose a different specialty. Then, during medical school rotations, I found my passion again in OB/GYN. Nothing else could compare.”
Obstetrics and Gynecology is a very personal specialty. “It’s important to me to have a relationship with my patients. When I am helping a patient make an important medical decision, I try to treat them as if they were a member of my family – my mother, my sister, my daughter. I want them to fully understand what is happening to them, what the options are and what the risks are so that we can together make an educated decision about their healthcare.
“I love starting my patient relationships when they are young – even teenagers. It is a joy to be with them as they have their first child, second child, even grandchildren. ”
From routine gynecological care to pregnancy and menopause, Dr. Nassiraee provides comprehensive health care to women of all ages in Southern Maryland. She cares for women as early as adolescence through the transition to menopausal years and beyond. Her services include general obstetrics, family planning, annual gynecologic exams, contraception and women’s health.
