Melissa Moya, DVM, (practice limited to internal medicine)


Dr. Melissa Moya was born and raised in northern New Jersey, and from a very early age, she was determined to practice veterinary medicine. She got her first job at a veterinary clinic during a high school summer break, which reinforced her desire to become a veterinarian.

Melissa earned her undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences from Rutgers University. She then graduated magna cum laude from Tuskegee University Veterinary School in 2017. Dr. Moya completed a rotating internship at Oradell Animal Hospital in New Jersey in 2018, followed by a 3-year internal medicine residency at Michigan State University.

She recently became engaged to her fiance, who is also a veterinarian. Besides spending time with her fiance, two cats, and dog Maya, Dr. Moya enjoys reading, watching TV shows and movies, and occasionally playing video games. She also enjoys walks and hikes outdoors as well as indoor gardening.

Her professional interests include immunology, gastroenterology, and infectious diseases. She is looking forward to her new life in California and is excited to meet your adorable family members!
