Melissa Mroz, M.D.
My role as an educator is important to my practice as well and helps to ensure I stay up to date with the most recent literature. I serve as a preceptor for both medical students and residents of our Internal Medicine Program, supervising their practice and teaching through didactics and lectures. I am passionate about education, particularly in the areas of women’s health, obesity, and evidence-based medicine. My teaching philosophy is that we are all learners and teachers. It is important that we recognize that while many things that are unknown, we can view these challenges as exciting opportunities, instead of causing fear or shame. I hope my students will learn to see each challenge as an opportunity to learn.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time in the finger lakes, downhill skiing, reading, and baking with my friends and family, particularly my husband, two children and dog.

Ratings & Reviews
At URMC, we believe that patients should be empowered to make the right decisions regarding their personal healthcare. To do so, transparency is critical. URMC partners with Press Ganey, to survey our patients about all aspects of their care experience. We are now putting this pertinent information at your fingertips by displaying star ratings for our providers along with anonymous patient comments on our website. This will help you make better-informed choices about how and with whom you seek care. Click here to learn more about the surveys used to generate this vital information.
