A Lifetime of Care
Samuel Del Río, MD, PhD, FACOG, FPMRS and Janie Furer Geraci, MD, FACOG have a combined 40 years of experience in gynecology and women’s care of all ages including annual exams, urogynecology, minimally invasive surgery services and Da Vinci Robotic surgery, hormone replacement therapy and more. After years working for hospital-owned practices, Dr. Del Rio decided to return to private practice and at the same time his colleague, Dr. Janie Furer Geraci was ready for a change too. The two practitioners have been partners for almost 16 years, in different capacities, and their newest venture, Gynecologic Specialists of Brevard, is based conveniently in Viera.
“Now I can decide how much time I spend with clients,” Dr. Del Río explained.
“I don’t want patients to feel like a number, hurried in or hurried out.”
He has been practicing in Brevard County since 1998. Dr. Del Río obtained his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University, School of Medicine in Cleveland. He then completed his OB/GYN residency and urogynecologic training at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is board certified in OB/GYN
as well as urogynecology (female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.) Dr. Del Rio is fluent in Spanish.
“What I diagnose, for the most part, I treat,” he said.
He also performs minimally invasive surgeries such as laparoscopic hysterectomies, transvaginal hysterectomies, tubal ligations, hysteroscopy and endometrial ablations. He specializes in the treatment of urinary incontinence and prolapse.
Dr. Geraci herself was ready for a change when she decided to enter private practice with Dr. Del Río and agrees that there are multiple benefits for both the staff and patients. While at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, she decided to specialize in obstetrics and gynecology because it provided the opportunity for her to walk through the various stages of life with her patients.
“I see patients from 14 to 100,” said Dr. Geraci.
She loved warmer weather and moved to Florida for her residency. Dr. Geraci enjoys the bond she develops with her patients by caring for them throughout the years. She specializes in menopausal management, hormone therapy and all contraceptive methods.
The home-like atmosphere in the new office contributes to the personalized care that both practitioners have pledged to give each patient – from annual exams to concerns like menopause, urinary incontinence and many others.
“We care for the person, not just a symptom, like a family practice,” said Dr. Geraci. “We talk to patients and discuss concerns.”
Dr. Del Río and Dr. Geraci specialize in a variety of GYN services, with over 40 years of combined experience. Gynecologic Specialists welcomes new patients and is located at 8043 Spyglass Hill Road, Suite 101 in Melbourne. Call (321) 265-5116 or visit BrevardGyn.com
