When speaking on her drive as a physician, Dr. Meliambro explains "I have wanted to be a physician since I was 12 years old. I was always fascinated by biomedical science, and I think that the opportunity to utilize this to help people and make a positive impact on the lives of others is truly amazing. I also appreciate how much I have learned from my patients, and I admire their courage and resilience in facing kidney disease. I grew up in NY and have been at Mount Sinai since medical school. I love to spend free time with my family, including my husband and very active son, who keeps us all on our toes!"
