The MCH Team

Melanie Ukanwa, MD

Board certified in Family Medicine, Dr Ukanwa provided excellent primary care services to the Grants, NM and surrounding Cibola County area since August of 2006 before moving with her practice, MCH, to Albuquerque, NM in January of 2018. 

A California transplant to New Mexico by way of Washington DC and New York City, Dr Ukanwa, has acquired a rather cosmopolitan philosophy of preventative care practice, combining traditional allopathic medicine expertise with naturopathic modalities of care.  

After completing a bachelors degree in 1997 in Environmental Engineering and Water Sciences/Civil Engineering at Stanford Univerity in California , Dr Ukanwa spent 2 years traveling the world (including Italy, Spain, Norway, the Bahamas, and more) before matriculating into medical school in 1999 at Howard University College of Medicine in Washington DC.  On graduating in 2003, she completed her Family Medicine residency training at Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, NY via the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Family and Social Medicine Residency Program.  On completing her residency in 2006, Dr Ukanwa found her way to Grants NM in an attempt to get closer to her West Coast living family and to fulfill her calling as a provider of the underserved. 

Dr Ukanwa is currently accepting patients of all ages and with all health concerns.
