My name is LaShelle Melton. I believe that healthcare is a ministry and I will give my all to ensure all my patients receive the appropriate care and referral as needed. I believe care should be given in spite of their ability to pay, race, religion or gender. I have been in the healthcare profession for over 10 years, with a background in corrections. I am dedicated to grow as the healthcare industry grows. I am very reliable, dedicated, honest, and humble spirit. I love to learn new things and hope to advance my career and educational goals.
