Victoria Melhuish, DPM
Dr. Victoria L. Melhuish is a board-certified podiatrist serving the northern Nevada area. Dedicated to a sound mind – sound body philosophy, she believes that taking care of every part of yourself, especially your feet, is important for your overall health. A desire to improve others’ quality of life drove her to build a professional career in medicine and influenced her choice of podiatry. She also notes that her passion for helping people with their feet and ankles was influenced by her grandmother, who had credited her podiatrist with keeping her on her feet for so many years.
