A Message from Melissa:

I firmly believe that providing excellent care is only possible when there is a strong collaboration between a patient and their provider— in order to effectively engage in shared-decision making. I am passionate about educating my patients about preventive health and strive to motivate them to prioritize their wellbeing.  My mission as a healthcare provider is to supply my patients with the tools and knowledge they need to thrive and lead full, healthy lives. As a native Spanish speaker, I am excited to serve and to advocate for the Hispanic community by bridging the language barrier, in an effort to provide well-rounded, culturally competent care. I am excited to be a part of Greater Family Health and look forward to making a positive impact in the lives of my patients.

Outside of the clinic, I enjoy working out, traveling, and spending time with my family.
