Dr. Melissa Adams has been with Bay Beach for over 10 years! She started as a receptionist for our day practice and loved us so much that she now is one of our emergency medical doctors! It has been so amazing to watch her grow and develop into the doctor that she is today.  

Dr. Adams graduated Virginia Maryland Veterinary College in 2018. She enjoys emergency medicine, Low Stress Patient Handling, Pain Management, and the practicing and studying the Human/ Animal Bond.  

When Dr. Adams is not at work, she splits her time between Virginia Beach and Northern Virginia, where she has a rescued Timneh African Grey Parrot named Cagney, who is at least 20 years old, and her beautiful Maine Coon kitty named Oyster.
