Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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!
