About Melinda M. Holliday, MD, FAAP

  • Dr. Holliday grew up in Las Vegas, NV. In her free time, she can be found spending time with her young daughter and two dogs, doing yoga, or being active outside. Dr. Holliday’s favorite area locale is the Hike & Bike Trail.

I chose a career in medicine, specifically pediatrics, because I believe education and prevention are key to optimal health. I have a specific passion for adolescent medicine, and I really enjoy developing long-term relationships with my patients and their parents based on mutual respect and trust. It is so much fun to watch my patients grow up, and it is my honor to play a role in their physical and emotional development.

    It just wasn’t inviting from start to finish of appointment

    Dr Holliday was late 30+ mins as usual. She was very judgemental and gave us the basics on weight loss.
