Bio

Melissa has been a member of the endocrinology team working alongside Dr. Dorsey since 2007. She provides superior care for patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes and the associated complications. Additionally, she cares for patients with thyroid disease, insulin resistance/obesity, and metabolic disorders. Melissa focuses on evidence-based care and stays current with the most up-to-date treatment options and research in the field of endocrinology to provide for her patients.

Melissa’s approach is to treat the patient as a whole, with emphasis on lifestyle modification in addition to medication management. She takes the time to get to know her patients and build a relationship of mutual respect. Part of her care is making sure her patients fully understand their disease process, so each individual can have the best opportunity for improved outcomes and long-term care.

Melissa places an emphasis on determining the barriers that may prevent successful management. She works collaboratively with each patient to resolve those barriers or find alternative resources. She takes time to evaluate and educate on lifestyle modifications to enhance outcomes of treatment.
