Gina M. Dado, MD, FACOG
Hi! Welcome to Top to Bottom Medical Aesthetics! My name is Gina M. Dado, MD. I am a board-certified OBGYN physician. I was born and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago, IL. I attended college at Benedictine University (formerly known as Illinois Benedictine College) and attended medical school at Loyola Stritch School of Medicine in Maywood, IL. I did my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Loyola University Medical Center and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona in 1996 where I began my practice with Paradise Valley Obstetrics and Gynecology.
After 16 years of private practice, I explored a few adventures, one being a National Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cell Educator with CORD:USE umbilical cord blood bank. I then became an Attending teaching physician at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, AZ where I supervised the residents, medical students and midwives. I relocated to the state of WA in 2017. I became an OB Hospitalist with PeaceHealth in Bellingham and moved to Semiahmoo with my wonderful husband Chris and 3 dogs, one of which is a retired police German Shepherd. I have 2 amazing daughters that are attending the University of Arizona in Tucson.
In my spare time, I created Top to Bottom Medical Aesthetics. I have always loved learning about skin care and researching the latest advances in aesthetics. My face is what I present to the world and it is important to me to do what I can to keep it looking healthy and happy, a reflection of who I am on the inside. I have always had a passion for connecting with patients and giving great medical care. After years of interacting with thousands of people, I have come to learn that what you believe about yourself is what guides you. If you feel good about yourself, you will let your light shine and do amazing things with your life.
If you are not happy about your physical appearance you will limit yourself based on these beliefs of feeling “not good enough or worthy” which is what many of us struggle with on a daily basis. I believe aesthetics gives you a chance to take some physical characteristic you are sensitive about or want to improve upon and removes that obstacle from living your best life. This, then allows you to feel good on the inside and let your light truly shine to others around you on the outside. It is not about looking a certain way to measure up to someone else. Life is about being happy and letting the immense joy in, every day. If that means getting rid of some brown spots on your face, smoothing out some wrinkles, increasing the hair on your head, having gorgeous eyelashes or lightening some dark skin in places where the sun doesn’t shine, it is all ok! BeYOUtiful….Be your best you! That is what it is all about.
I will be here to do the best job I can and help you achieve your transformative goals so you can go out there and reach for your dreams. I look forward to this BeYOUtiful journey with you.
