As a people person who has always wanted to help others, Dr. Fernando Melgar was inspired to become a physician from a young age. Having cared for patients in the U.S. and Honduras, Dr. Melgar has experience in a variety of settings and an appreciation for different cultures. “I have such respect and admiration for seniors,” he says, “and I’m dedicated to caring for them like family—taking time to listen, explain, work with them, and build relationships.” His favorite part is seeing their smiles when they feel someone is taking good care of them.
In Dr. Melgar’s personal time, he loves to exercise and be outdoors. Some of his favorite activities are kayaking, snorkeling, going to the beach, and playing volleyball and soccer.
