We Offer Well Visits for Both Men and Women to our Existing Patients!
Dr. Berutti and her Physician Assistant, Melanie Martin, are both functional medicine providers. A FM provider uses a different medical approach with their patients by identifying the root causes of symptoms, rather than just treating the symptoms themselves. This approach includes spending much more time with patients rather than the usual 15 minutes that you may get with another provider. We do extensive lab testing based on your symptoms and health goals, talk with you about your health history and goals and address them as applicable. The reason for this is that so many people are falling through the gaps of conventional medical practices and are not getting the help that they need in order to fully heal and feel their absolute best.
Dr. Berutti and Melanie will also refer you to a specialist if you need one and will work with that specialist to develop the best possible appropriate treatment plan specific to your needs. For additional information on the functional medicine services we provide, please click here.
Most Functional Medicine providers do not offer Primary Care services to their patients, however, Both Dr. Berutti and PA, Melanie do! This prevents you from having to see multiple providers for your basic healthcare. At Dynamic Life Health Center, you will find healthcare in a compassionate and caring environment.
What do Annual Well Visits Include?
- A comprehensive set of labs to include Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP), Complete Blood Count (CBC)
- Full thyroid panel to include TSH, T3, T4, Reverse T3, and Thyroid Antibodies
- PSA (prostate-antigen) test for men
- Full physical exam to include a Pap for women and a Prostate/testicular exam for men
- EKG if warranted
- Stool sample based on age/risk factors
- Other labs as indicated by the patient’s health
Please note that lab charges are not included in the cost of your office visit. Often times you can use your insurance for your labs, depending on your plan; otherwise, we offer a deeply discounted cash pay price through Lab Corp.
We offer Well Visits exclusively to our existing patients. The reason we don’t offer Well Woman and Well Men visits for new patients is that during your Functional Medicine/Hormone appointment, we want to spend extra time with you to address all of your health concerns and do extensive lab work to identify any areas of concern. Our Well Visits are an adjunct to the Functional Medicine services that we provide for your convenience so you don’t have to see multiple providers.
Acute Care Visits for New and Existing Patients
We are also happy to see anyone with an acute illness that you need medical help with. However, because we don’t treat or test for COVID-19, we are unable to see any patients who are experiencing symptoms associated with the Corona Virus. Otherwise, if you get sick, please give us a call and we can get you in as quickly as possible.

About Melanie Martin, PA-C
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’s prior experience with a more conventional medicine type role prior to her changing her focus to functional medicine ensures that she is well-qualified to help you with any of your needs.
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.
