Background

Melissa (Feldhaus) Dahir grew up in Columbus, Nebraska. In 1997 she moved to Omaha to pursue a career in nursing and she became a board certified family nurse practitioner in 2004.

Early in her career she recognized a gap in healthcare and wanted to help women suffering from vulvodynia, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction. She received specialty training from national experts and returned to the Midwest in the fall of 2006 to open the first clinic devoted to treating these sensitive issues.

Melissa’s doctoral training at Creighton University was centered around evidence based medicine. More specifically, she uses current research to offer innovative treatments and the best possible outcomes for patients.
