Dr. Dimon's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dimon "I am the fourth out of five children and attended Catholic schools growing up in several Southeastern states, which makes me feel right at home working at a Catholic hospital like St. Mary's and St. Joe's. I graduated second in my high school class from Charlotte Catholic High School. I attended the first women's college in the U.S. called Mount Holyoke College (graduating cum laude) and spent my junior year abroad studying at the Sorbonne University in Paris. Well known alumnae of Mount Holyoke include Emily Dickinson, Frances Perkins (the first woman in the Presidential Cabinet), and Virginia Apgar, who invented the Apgar score to decipher newborn health. My first job out of college was as a Research Assistant at the Harvard School of Public Health. After several years working in research, I attended medical school and did my residency in Ob/Gyn at Providence Hospital in Southfield. I was selected as the Administrative Chief Resident during my last year of residency and graduated in 2003. I joined Westside Ob/Gyn right after completing my residency in 2003. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our 3 children, and our dogs as well as running, traveling, exploring the Detroit area, and reading."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dimon "I take care of women of all ages in the office setting and work hard to get to know them and their individual needs. When I see a patient, I attempt to get to know all aspects of her life, which enables me to better help her. From routine office visits and procedures to the most up to date technologies, I try to make her visit the best experience and most comfortable possible.

I specialize in routine gynecology needs, minimally invasive procedures as well as  "open" surgeries (in which larger skin incisions are required.) 

I am now in my late-40's and have first hand experience with what many of my patients are experiencing.  I can empathize with many of their issues and will do my best to solve any problems they may be experiencing based on current guidelines. "

I'd been to several Dr's for years with problems with endometriosis and a very large cyst/mass with no relief. I came to Dr. Dimon and she developed plan and we agreed on surgery.

I just had a uterine ablation with Dr. Dimon, and my periods are no longer heavy and painful. In fact, they are gone! She spent a lot of time with me explaining different ways to treat heavy periods. I chose a uterine ablation, a procedure that helps with difficult periods immensely. I am so happy...more
