About Us

Dr. Melanie A. Ortleb

 

On Why Dermatology
I recently had a conversation with one of my dearest friends about our career choices.  I wake up everyday having to pinch myself because I love my job. Dermatology was a calling for me and I thank God everyday that I’ve made it here.

On Relationships with my Patients
I love getting to know my patients outside of dermatology.  Of course my main job is to help with their skin but whenever I can I try to learn something else about the patient that allows me to connect with them on a personal level.  It’s always amazing to find out what friends, hobbies or backgrounds we share.
