Specialties

Dr. Melody D Cassels has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • 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.

BEST Pediatrician ever!

My husband and I are so THANKFUL for Dr. Cassels! She is amazing! Because we've moved around quite a bit my children have had a fair share of different pediatricians but Dr. Cassels (and her partner Dr. Caldwell) is BY FAR the best out there! She's personable, highly intelligent, and always there for our children! She's very thorough & fully explains everything. I'm thankful to have her!!! A+++++++

Wonderful, caring, intelligent doctor

I take both of my sons to Dr. Cassels. She is always very attuned to them as individuals. She remembers details about their health, home life, school situation, sports, etc. She is very thorough when seeking to diagnose an illness. I feel very confident in her care of my boys! Also, she speaks to me intelligently and with respect. The office staff is very nice, professional, organized and courteous. I highly recommend this practice.
