Melanie Martin, PA-C, is Dr. Berutti’s Physician Assistant who has been practicing medicine for a total of 30 years. About halfway through her career, she realized that the “conventional medicine” approach wasn’t always meeting her patients’ health goals and that the gaps in that system did not promote wellness and optimal health. Melanie decided that she could better help people by using a more integrative approach so she decided to make a career change 14 years ago so that she could do just that.
Melanie believes that the key to truly helping patients is to be able to spend plenty of time with them in order to have ample opportunity to listen to their needs. She incorporates a collaborative approach so that everyone feels involved, educated, and empowered with their personal health care.
Melanie wasn’t born in Texas, but like most transplants, got here as soon as she could! She moved to Fort Worth at a young age and has stayed in the area ever since. She’s a lover of the Arts and is a member of the Kimball Art Museum. Melanie also enjoys spending time with her 20-year-old son who attends Texas A&M University.
She has trained and worked under some of the top functional medicine practitioners in the area and is happy to be a part of Dr. Berutti’s team so that she can continue to learn from Dr. Berutti’s vast areas of expertise. She’s also excited to focus on helping her patients get to the root cause(s) of their symptoms and illnesses so they can achieve optimal health and wellness.
Additionally, Melanie also offers well women and well men visits for existing patients so that you do not have to see different providers. Additionally, she will see existing patients for acute care, provided there are no COVID-19 symptoms present.
Dr. Berutti and our staff are very happy to have Melanie be a part of our team! Not only is she an experienced Physician’s Assistant, but she is also considered an expert in her field, having provided lectures to her peers on subjects including hormone balancing, nutrition, weight loss, and gut inflammation. We are confident that our patients are going to love her and her commitment to their health care!
