What can I say about Dr. Melissa? I initially went to see her for a degenerative bulging disc injury about a year ago that occurred while working out (I’m an avid weight lifter). At my first appointment, while I was describing to her my pain and where it was located, she immediately knew what the injury was. However, Dr. Melissa still took the time to go over the in-house tests, for new patients, in detail and was very thorough in explaining what had occurred and the process we need to go through to heal my injury. Approximately 6 months after my first appointment, multiple weekly adjustments, and some home exercises she provided me, my back is 95% healed and I’m able to go about my normal daily routine! However, my back injury had brought to the surface other internal health issues I never knew I had. My stomach started to hurt every single day and I was experiencing extreme bloating. I was still eating the same foods as well as measuring my food out; as I had previously done prior to my injury. The pain/symptoms persisted and Dr. Melissa decided to look into it further. Again, after explaining to her my symptoms, from her medical understanding, Dr. Manilla thought I had SIBO: small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. While continuing to work with her, I also went to see an allergist and went to the hospital for further testing. I in fact had SIBO. While taking the antibiotic (only one round for the initial diagnosis), Dr. Manilla suggested I simultaneously take other natural supplements and vitamins. Now 3 months later and a 90% whole food diet, I have minimal bloating and no stomach pain. She is a miracle worker and truly loves what she does. She really does care for the health and success of all her patients. Go see her for any and all questions involving your health, both internally and externally. THANK YOU, Dr. Melissa!
