Melisa G. Boersma

Melisa G. Boersma, M.D., M.S., B.A.

A naturally pragmatic advocate, Dr. Melissa Boersma pursued medicine in order to connect with patients and their families during critical health situations. She thinks innovatively and compassionately, enabling her to provide excellent care as a radiation oncologist.

Patients recognize and appreciate the amount of time Melissa spends educating them and their families about their diagnosis, and addressing their questions and fears around procedures. Melisa finds it incredibly rewarding to mentally, physically, and spiritually prepare patients for their diagnosis and treatments by providing emotional support and encouragement while they are navigating this difficult period of their lives.

Melisa enjoys time away from the office with her family by swimming, knitting, Tae Kwon Do, and tennis.
