Specialties

Dr. Melissa H Handley has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

worest doctor to go to alongwith the clinic

The front staff is rude and the hour and half I waited for my child to be seen the front staff was talking about children medical records that are very confidential information out loud for people to hear. These doctors in this clinic do not care even through my family has seen doctor Handley since birth after the last visit on how his front office has been the last few times it looks at the office manger and the doctor has not fix the problem and they have a huge turn over in the front but the same behavior of the staff keep on being there
