I've been drawn to pediatrics for as long as I can remember. I've always enjoyed hearing the laughter of children or seeing smiles on their faces.
Dr. Melissa Horton joined our practice in 2019. She attended the University of Washington for her undergraduate education and then went on to Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences for medical school. Dr. Horton completed her residency at the University of Nevada.
Dr. Horton enjoys working with families to help care for and guide their little ones from infancy through adolescence. She believes communication, care, and understanding are essential in developing a long, healthy relationship with her patients and their families. Dr. Horton sees the value in communicating treatment options with patients and their families in order to help them make informed and comfortable decisions.
Dr. Horton lives in Mountlake Terrace with her husband, who happens to be her high school sweetheart, and their daughter. She enjoys spending time with her family, reading, baking, and gardening. Dr. Horton was born and raised in the Seattle area and is excited to be back here practicing medicine.
