Melissa Acevedo, M.D.

Dr. Melissa Acevedo was born and raised in Miami, Florida, where she attended Florida International University for her undergraduate studies. After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors Degree in Biology, she moved to New York to pursue her medical education. She attended New York University for both her medical degree and her residency training. During residency, Dr. Melissa Acevedo was involved in research related to bariatric surgery and menstrual dysfunction. She was also Chief Resident during her final year of residency and was closely involved in education.

After eight years in New York City, Dr. Acevedo moved back to Miami, to work as a general Obstetrician and Gynecologist in South Miami. She strives to be personally involved in her patients’ obstetrical care and guide their path through delivery and the postpartum period. Her clinical interests also include gynecologic surgery, contraception, management of abnormal pap smears, and helping empower women in understanding their gynecologic health.

In her free time, Dr. Acevedo enjoys visiting the Florida Keys and spending time with her family and friends. She recently welcomed two new additions to the family, Logan and Lucia, who have given her a unique perspective on twin pregnancy and motherhood, and have brought an abundance of joy.
