    I'm a new patient with NP Melissa and I know a lot of people say this but my visit with her really felt like we were just hanging out in a outdoor cafe drinking coffee and just immediately trust her. I like how she acknowledge and shows her vulnerability as a provider and a wonderful mother. She's very intelligent and thoroughly precise with her evaluation and observation with all my concerns. I felt secured and comforted after my visit. Shout out to Nhi from lab, she did a good job drawing my blood and she plays very good relaxing music In her lab that makes you feel like you're just walking in a spa.
