Advanced practice provider Melissa Chin is a board-certified family nurse practitioner (FNP-C) and advanced practice registered nurse (APRN). Her credentials also include emergency nurse practitioner, basic life support (BLS), pediatric life support (PALS), advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS) and Department of Transportation-certified medical examiner.

She completed her undergraduate degree in nursing at the University of Akron (Ohio) and her master’s in nursing-family nurse practitioner at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth Houston), where she also earned an advanced certificate in emergency-trauma care.

Being a healthcare provider has given Melissa the opportunity to realize her passion for helping others by helping people become and stay healthy. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, she was a registered nurse in progressive care and emergency settings. Her primary clinical interests are management of acute and chronic conditions and minor procedures.

Her philosophy focuses on including patients in their care, being open and empathetic and utilizing shared decision-making. She likes to communicate every aspect of care, making sure that patients understand the plan and know what to expect. Medicine, she says, is like being a science detective, which she finds to be both challenging and rewarding. She also loves to see that the care she provides makes a positive impact on the lives of her patients.

A resident of Richmond, Melissa’s favorite leisure activities are spending time with her family, reading, hiking and biking.
