Hello! I am Dr. Melissa Oh. I attended Emory University School of Medicine and completed my residency training in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Emory University.
I was born in Miami, Fla. I moved to Baltimore to attend college at Johns Hopkins University. I then moved to Atlanta for medical school and residency. After residency, I decided to stay in Atlanta and joined ENT of Georgia to serve the Atlanta community. During my residency, I was given the opportunity to take care of patients with rare and advanced diseases at the Emory University, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, the Atlanta VA Medical Center and Grady Memorial Hospital. This provided me with a diverse background in training but also a connection to the community.
I diagnose and treat patients of all ages across all areas of general otolaryngology with interests in sinus disease, thyroid disease, salivary disorders and head and neck cancer.
I am passionate about listening to patients to treat the patient as a whole. It is my duty as a physician to provide healthcare at the highest quality based on the available evidence and practice guidelines. I am an advocate for my patients and treat them as I would treat family. I hope for the opportunity to take care of you or your children.
When I am not taking care of patients, I am spending time with my family including my husband, daughter and sister. I also have two dogs, a Labrador Retriever and Great Pyrenees. We enjoy road trips, hiking, traveling and exploring new foods and cultures.
