About Our Practice
Artemis Advanced Office Gynecology opened in 2008. We are located in Lockport, New York and serve the entire Western New York region. We offer the latest advances and emphasize the least invasive options for preventative women’s health and treatment of gynecologic problems. Holistic Medicine is about changing the focus in medicine to one of health and healing rather than disease. This broader approach emphasizes prevention, education and empowerment to achieve the best health and vitality possible at any age.
Common gynecologic conditions such as heavy menstrual bleeding, fibroids, polyps in the uterine cavity, polycystic ovarian syndrome and endometriosis can be the end products of hormonal and metabolic imbalances. In addition to the available medical or surgical treatments, it is important to address the lifestyle practices and the toxins that led down the path to disease in order to reverse the imbalance and return to a state of health.
Dr. Julie Madejski is a summa cum laude graduate of the Honors Program at the State University of New York at Buffalo (1989). She received her medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine (1993) and completed her internship and residency training at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester (1993-1997). She was accepted as a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (board certified in her field) in 2000.
Dr. Madejski is on the medical staff of Kaleida Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital and Eastern Niagara Hospital. She is an Instructor of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

Stephanie Bruzgul is a physician’s assistant who has been exclusively practicing in the field of Women’s Health since 2006. She took a year sabbatical to Spain. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from the University of Pittsburgh. She later completed her Master of Science degree as a Physician’s Assistant at Daemen College in Buffalo.
Stephanie’s chief area of interest is in promoting a healthy lifestyle as a proactive approach to health. Her other areas of interest include adolescent women’s healthcare, reproductive health and contraception, prevention of and education about sexually transmitted diseases, and management of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Martha Putnam received her Master of Science degree in Women’s Health Care from the University of Rochester. She has worked as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner since 1995. She has enjoyed returning to her roots in Lockport.
Martha’s special interest is cancer detection and prevention. She started Niagara County’s first High Risk Cancer Program at Artemis Advanced Office Gynecology. Modeled after Roswell Park Cancer Institute and other regional cancer centers, our program involves screening every patient for a significant family history of cancer. Those who meet the national guidelines are offered genetic testing. Even if an individual is not a candidate for gene testing, there are other preventative measures we can offer. There are computer models that predict one’s lifetime risk of breast cancer. Based on that data, we offer closer surveillance (for example breast MRIs or more frequent clinical exams) and in some cases preventative medications. Lifestyle improvements and a positive attitude are also keys to cancer prevention.
Martha’s other area of interest is adolescent health.
Maureen D’Angelo earned Master of Science degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 1997 from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Prior to that, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Daemen College, summa cum laude. She has been a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner since 1998.
As a nurse, she worked in the emergency department, the medical/surgical floor, and on the oncology unit of Kaleida Health Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital. Once she earned her degree as a nurse practitioner, she worked in primary care for Highgate Medical Group for eight years. She left there in 2006 to work for Dr. James Pilc, an obstetrician/gynecologist.
When Dr. Pilc retired from Western medicine in 2012, he recommended Dr. Madejski to his patients as his successor. We welcomed Maureen D’Angelo to Artemis Advanced Office Gynecology to provide continuity of care for Dr. Pilc’s patients. Her experience in both Gynecology and Primary Care has been an invaluable asset to our office.

She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Rochester in 2009 and a Bachelor of Science Degree as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2001. She worked in the radiology and cardiac departments at Medina Memorial Hospital for almost fifteen years.
“My goal at Artemis is to make the patient feel at ease while she is having her ultrasound. I want her to have the best experience possible and walk away feeling heard and that she was a priority”.
She has more recently taken on the role of our Infection Preventionist, assuring compliance with all safety guidelines that are required for Accreditation for Office Based Surgery (OBS).
