Meet Melissa

I would describe my specialty as being an “externist” as opposed to an internist. I focus on diagnosing problems of the limbs and spine including muscle, bone, nerve, and skin disorders. My work satisfaction comes from helping heal a chronic wound but also in helping others discover the reason for why they might be numb or weak. When I am not at work, I spend time with my family, singing, playing tennis, and being outside as much as possible.
