Melissa Dean, MD : Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine

Dean Wellness Institute


Dean Wellness Institute was established in 2007 by Dr. Melissa Dean when she noticed that many patients wanted more natural ways to prevent or treat diseases. Since that time, Dr Dean has become Board Certified in Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine. She is completing a second Master’s degree at University of South Florida in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine. With her advanced training, Dr Dean is able to offer specialized options in the area of bioidentical hormone replacement, nutritional evaluation, and detoxification. All of these therapies combined promote well-being and prevent disease.

I.V. vitamin therapy is available to the appropriate patient. Dean Wellness Institute has recently expanded its services available to include First Line Therapy. First Line Therapy is a nutritionally-based approach to the treatment of high cholesterol and elevated blood sugars, known as metabolic syndrome.

Imbalance in a woman’s hormones can manifest in many ways. Hot fl ashes, mood swings, weight gain, and low sex drive are just a few of these symptoms. Dr Dean has advanced training and years of experience in treating hormonal imbalances with bioidentical hormones. Unfortunately, many women have forgotten what it was like to feel energetic and excited about life.

Dr. Dean can order specialized nutritional testing that can investigate the levels of amino acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. Once deficiencies are revealed, personalized vitamin combinations can be compounded for each individual.

Hormone balancing, optimal nutrition, detoxification, exercise, and spiritual fulfillment are the areas that Dr. Dean believes are essential elements of well-being and longevity.

Dr Dean is one of the founding members of Women Leading Wellness (WLW), an organization of female practitioners that provide seminars on women’s issues annually and by request.
