Meet Dr. Melanie Walker

Dr. Walker was born in Anaheim, California and moved to Raleigh during her high school years. She graduated from Millbrook High School, then University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with degrees in psychology, public health and medicine. Go Heels! She completed her pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. She and her husband Franklin moved back to Raleigh in 2000. Before joining Pediatric Partners in 2008, she practiced at Raleigh Children and Adolescents Medicine for 7 years.

Dr. Walker enjoys working with children of all ages and their families. She loves working with new parents on the challenges and joys a new baby can bring and she enjoys working with adolescents and offering basic gynecological services to teenage girls.

Dr. Walker stays busy with her husband, Franklin, and her two boys, Trey and Paul when she isn’t in the office. She is involved at their school, at her church, Church on Morgan, was the chairman of the pediatrics department at Rex Hospital (2010-2011), and was also the president of Rex Medical Staff. When she isn’t sitting on the sidelines of an athletic event, she enjoys her peloton, travel, reading, cooking and all things crafty!
