Melissa Dean, MD

Dean Wellness Institute - 1345 36th Street, Suite B, Vero Beach, FL


Dr. Melissa Dean has over 30 years of experience applying the functional medicine model. As a pioneer in this field, she understands the importance of assessing the hormonal, nutritional, physical activity, detox pathways, emotional and spiritual health in patients to promote a healthy aging process. 


SERVICES/OFFERING: Holistic Primary Care, Preventative Medicine, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Nutritional Guidance/Testing for healthy detox and increasing immune function, Aesthetics (PDO Threads, Microneedling, HA Fillers, neuro-muscular blockers), PRP and Stem Cell Therapy, IV Therapy (Vitamin C/Nutritional, Ozone, PC, Chelation).


CONDITIONS TREATED: Perimenopausal/Menopausal, Weight Gain, Insomnia, Diabetes, Hair Loss, Thyroid Disorder, Low Energy, Decreased Libido.


METHOD: In-person patient appointments.


INSPIRATION: As a female practitioner, Dr. Dean realized that women were underserved. “A paternalistic medical model has no idea how to treat the aging female. My patient population (largely female) pushed me to challenge myself and the traditional medical model to adequately treat them.”


PATIENT EXPERIENCE: “Patients that have been prescribed antidepressants often come to me thinking they have a mental health issue. It is a great feeling to see the relief in a patient’s eyes when I explain that their issue is actually hormonal, common, and fixable.”
