About

"My favorite thing about my job is that I get to work with young people and their families. I believe that people should be the center of their own care, whether they happen to be young or not. I love that most of my patients know how to have fun and are very honest about everything; that usually helps them get better much faster than most adults do. I think it’s really important to spend a lot of time listening to my patients and at least a little time laughing with them." — Melanie A. Wellington
