Dr. Melissa Adkison


Dr. Adkison graduated in 2006 and worked for a year in private practice then felt a drive to offer her services in a more meaningful way so she joined the Army to serve her country. For the next 3 years, she worked for the Army as an Army Corp Veterinarian. When her tour was finished, she then spent many years working at animal shelters providing preventive care and surgeries to help animals find their forever homes. The last 3 years have found her working for Banfield. Dr. Adkison knows how important each member of the family is and strives to provide thorough diagnostics, physical exams and preventive care, and work as a team with owners to help keep furry family members healthy and happy.
