Dr Lameda was such a phenomenal person. The world was so lucky to have her. She knew all of my kids by name, even the twins. I can't even explain how heartbroken we are to hear about her passing. Thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.

Dr. Lameda was an amazing woman. She always made time to talk to each of my children even if they weren't the ones being seen that day. Her smile was a comfort to us all and will be dearly missed. The world has lost a special person but Heaven has regained one of it's Angels on Earth. God bless you and your family. We love you! The Wilson Family

Since the day I placed all 3 of my boys in her arms when they where 24 hours old, I knew they where in good hands. She went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to her patients. The boys and I came to love Dr. Lameda very dearly. She was apart of our family for many years. She will be missed dearly and we know she is watching over us all...prayers of comfort for her family and staff. Anyone that had the chance to know her will miss her smile for years to come...God Bless Melinda, Caleb, Joseph and Issac Thank you for everything

I too am heartbroken. Dr. Lameda had a special place in her heart for special needs kids like my daughter and she never made you feel like your questions or concerns were ridiculous or time consuming. I loved her and will always remember how she loved my whole family. Prayers for her family.
