Davis Graphic Design congratulates Melanie Mintzer, MD, of Generations Family Practice on her Cary Magazine Maggy Awards ‘Best Doctor’ win!
In her first-ever Maggy win, Dr. Melanie Mintzer knocked a longtime Best Doctor favorite to second place!
Mintzer is a second-generation family doc who opened her Generations Family Practice in Cary in 2005; it serves children, adults and seniors.
Prior to private practice, the Chicago native worked in public and women’s health care for 20 years, including a stint as medical director of the Orange County Health Department, and taught at the UNC-CH School of Medicine.
Mintzer believes this Maggy Award recognition speaks well of the entire Generations team. “Getting patients in, making them feel comfortable, is the really important thing; we want people to feel better when they leave,” she said. Some of her patients are literally lifelong — she helped birth them, and now cares for them as adults. “It’s an honor to take care of them, and to see my former students now in practice,” Mintzer said. “I love what I do and I love my patients. This doesn’t feel like work.”
Outside the office, Mintzer knits, sews, exercises at Rex Wellness, and takes online classes in Hebrew. She’s also the proud owner of three at-home looms, which she uses to weave cloth for items such as jackets and rugs.
