About Melinda Patricio
Melinda earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the Univeristy of Massachusetts Dartmouth. She then furthered her medical expertise, earning her Masters of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Melinda’s clinical interests consist of congestive heart failure and cardiology.
Ever since Melinda was a small child she was always helping others, especially those who were ill or hurt. Having a close connection to someone who had heart disease helped her better understand that promoting a healthy lifestyle and heart wellness was extremely important, and one of the most valuable gifts she could share with others.
Her philosophy of care is centered around health promotion and wellness. Melinda understands the importance of developing a rapport with the patient, not only focusing on their illness, but also who they are as a person. This helps to create a collaborative team to overcome any barriers that may impact her patient’s overall health and wellbeing.
When not at work, Melinda enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons.
