Seeing her parents make a difference as physicians inspired Dr. Melissa Mejia to become one, too. “Providing good medical care has always been our passion,” says Dr. Mejia, who is board-certified in both internal medicine and geriatric medicine. To do that, she strives to evaluate patients in a thorough and caring manner and keep up with medical research. “My favorite part is helping patients achieve better health and quality of life. I especially love the challenges and rewards of working with seniors.”
Away from work, Dr. Mejia likes to spend time with family and friends and exercise. Originally from the Dominican Republic, she also enjoys traveling and hopes to explore Australia one day.
