Meet the Doctors

Susan W. Jeansonne, M.D.

“Dr. J” as many parents, patients and co-workers call her, has a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy and graduated from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society as a Medical Doctor in 1999. She completed her residency with LSUHSC New Orleans and Children’s Hospital New Orleans where she was recognized by the PICU Physicians as Outstanding PICU resident and was co-awarded as Outstanding Pediatrics Resident in her last year of residency. She went on to complete an additional voluntary year as a Chief Resident of the program.

Dr. Jeansonne has been a resident of Kingsport, Tennessee since 2005. She has 8 years of experience as a primary pediatrician covering outpatient well and acute care as well as neonatal hospital care. In addition, she has approximately nine years of experience working in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Dr. Jeansonne was a staff physician with Children’s Hospital New Orleans Emergency Department before moving to Tennessee and has 8 years of experience in the Niswonger Pediatric Emergency Department. “Dr. J” loves educating parents and young patients about health concerns and leading them to wellness. She is a Board Certified Pediatrician, Fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics, and a member of the Tennessee AAP.

She is married to Gregory Jeansonne and has two children and loves spending time with her family.

Melissa Larzo, M.D.

Melissa Larzo has been proud to call Johnson City her home since 2011.  A native of the southern West Virginia coalfields, she moved to the big city of Morgantown, WV, to begin her undergraduate career as a biology major at West Virginia University in 1993.  She completed both her medical training (MD, 2000) and post-graduate training (2003) in pediatrics at WVU School of Medicine. 

She continued at West Virginia University Healthcare, working first in both the outpatient clinic and on the inpatient floor at Ruby Memorial Hospital for several years.  She later worked at WVU Cheat Lake Physicians, a busy outpatient clinic, before her move to Tennessee.

Melissa finally convinced her husband that life is better in the south, so she and her family moved to Johnson City, where she had the privilege of pausing her career in order to raise her three little ones for several years.  After her hiatus, she is excited to once again serve our littlest patients.

In her free time, Melissa loves to hike and do anything else that involves being outside. She likes to spend time in the kitchen with her kids cooking and making a mess.  She and her family attend Grace Fellowship Church where they volunteer in various capacities.  

Melissa is board-certified in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
