Melissa Stoner, MD
Melissa Stoner, MD, practices family medicine at Calvert Primary Care Twin Beaches, providing comprehensive health screening and care for every member of the family. Dr. Stoner received her medical degree from Georgetown School of Medicine and did her residency at Georgetown/Providence Family Medicine Residency, both in Washington, DC. She also received her Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from Georgetown University. She is board-certified in Family Medicine.
Dr. Stoner knew from a very young age that she wanted to become a doctor. “It started at a 5th grade Career Day event, when this smart, beautiful woman stood up and told us about being a doctor. I was mesmerized. She was an OB/GYN, which, at the age of 11 meant nothing to me, but I felt her passion and decided right then and there that I would become a doctor.”
In medical school, Dr. Stoner resonated with family medicine because it treats the whole person and focuses on preventative care as much as curative care. “My job as a family physician is to be my patients’ advocate for achieving and maintaining good health. I’m not there to judge or preach, or condone bad behavior. I am there to help them understand their options for treating existing conditions and provide guidance on how to build a healthy lifestyle.
Prior to joining CPA, Dr. Stoner worked in Urgent Care and Primary Care for five years. There, she had the opportunity to work with patients of every age, race, marital status and sexual orientation. “I really enjoy being able to help a wide variety of patients. All that really matters to me is that they are honest with me. Tell me the truth – good or bad – I can work with that.”
Dr. Stoner is a member of the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
