Susan Melchiore, MD
Dr. Melchiore was born and raised in the Chicago area. After completing undergraduate studies in Biology and Russian, she attended University of Illinois College of Medicine for her medical degree She completed her Internal Medicine Residency at University of California, Irvine campus and then a Geriatric Medicine Fellowship at UCLA. Her training under Jeff Cummings, MD and others in the field of dementia at that time planted the seeds of her growing interest in care for those affected by memory loss and their families. After working as an associate Professor of Internal Medicine at UCLA, she moved to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho in 1996 to establish a private office practice. However, after 10 years of office-based practice, her desire to focus on the needs of the “whole” person lead her to co-found a non-profit, faith-based medical house-call and senior advocacy program (On Site for Seniors) to meet the holistic needs of frail senior and homebound adults in the community. During this time, she has also been working with the North Idaho Memory Clinic since its inception in the late 1990’s and continues to support early diagnosis of memory loss syndromes and education on brain health.
