Melinda Tellier, FNP-C, says that she didn’t choose family practice, it chose her. Her mother was a Physician Assistant at Tri-County Family Medicine for several years. Growing up, Melinda saw how much her mother loved her job and how her patients loved her. Practicing medicine was engrained in her life and was always her career goal.
Melinda joined Tri-County after working as a Nurse Practitioner for three years. She also worked as a Registered Nurse prior to getting her Master’s Degree at the University of Rochester.
Melinda has a holistic approach to patient care. Thinking about every aspect of her patient’s life, not just their health. “I try to think about what other barriers they may be facing and how I can help.”
And helping her patients overcome health and life barriers is what motivates Melinda every day. “I genuinely enjoy when I see someone succeed in their health and life. I have the privilege to be a part of that.”
Melinda is married with three children and in her spare time, enjoys spending time with her family.
