Melody Eide, MD


I am a western South Dakota native. My great-grandfather homesteaded north of Nisland, South Dakota, and I grew up on my family’s farm and ranch. I am a third-generation graduate of Newell High School and received my Bachelor of Science summa cum laude from the University of South Dakota. I received my medical degree from Dartmouth Medical School, and continued my training with an internship in internal medicine at the University of Minnesota, masters of public health from Brown University, and residency in dermatology at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. I am double-board certified in dermatology and clinical informatics, which is the medical specialty related to integrating electronic resources and technology in the delivery of quality healthcare.

I practice general dermatology, with special interests in skin cancer and other skin disorders. I am committed to personally delivering and advancing evidence-based care to my patients and promoting health care delivery improvements. Prior to being recruited to the Rapid City Medical Center in 2016, I was on the dermatology clinical faculty at Wayne State University School of Medicine-Henry Ford Hospital for eight years. 

I am an avid Denver Broncos fan and devoted to my family, which includes my husband and three sons. I am so grateful for the opportunity to practice medicine at home in the Black Hills.
