Except for Type II Diabetes, my family docs were unable to ID the cause of several of my health symptoms. After meeting Dr. Melissa 15 years ago, we've worked through my fibromyalgia, gluten intolerance and other food sensitivities which were causing nutritional deficiencies. She supported me through breast cancer 4 years ago, and is doing the same with Non-H Lymphoma now. She's always encouraging, informative and persistent in finding root causes for ill health and how to best treat them.

Dr. Melissa is outstanding. She's extremely knowledgeable about my health concerns and provides me the medical care that I need. In addition, she spared me the damaging neurological affects of chemotherapy by prescribing me the right supplements. I can't thank her enough!
