UT Health Carthage welcomes family nurse practitioner

Melissa Walters

Melissa Walters, APRN, FNP-C, is now practicing at UT Health Carthage. Walters is a family nurse practitioner who sees patients of all ages.

“I want to assist patients in achieving the best health they can as well as allow them to partner in their own care,” Walters said. “I believe that a strong provider-patient relationship is built on communication and collaboration.”

Walters became interested in healthcare at a young age because of her own patient experience.

“My orthopedist and his staff took time to teach me anatomy and demonstrate the equipment — I was hooked.”

Her special areas of medical interest are growth and development and health promotion.

“I enjoy caring for patients across the lifespan and seeing them grow and change.”

She also has a background in emergency medicine and operative care.

Walters is welcoming new patients at 409 Cottage Road in Carthage. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (903) 531-8890.
