Personalized Heath - CARE

Not Just Another Insurance-Dictated Protocol Robot

Melissa Lonnecker, PA-C

Melissa grew up in Salt Lake County, Utah, graduating from Granite High School with Honors, having been on the dive team, track team, cheerleading team, and in Madrigals.

Melissa graduated with an Associate Degree in Biology from RICK’s College in Rexburg, ID, before serving an 18-month Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to São Paulo, Brazil.

After returning home from Brazil, Melissa finished her Bachelor of Science in Zoology with an emphasis in Human Biology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

She then attended Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA, to complete her Physician Assistant Education and training, graduating in 2001 with Honors.

After completing her Physician Assistant education and training, Melissa moved back to Utah and began working in Family Medicine to establish a solid and broad foundation in the medical field for the first eight years of her medical career.

After establishing herself in Family Medicine, Melissa became dissatisfied with Western Medicine. Feeling that Medical Insurance companies were dictating the maximum amount of time she could spend with a given patient and frustrated at the rate at which pharmaceuticals were prescribed (rarely treating the root of the problem), Melissa began branching off into specializing in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and Functional Medicine, learning to treat the root causes of health problems.

Melissa worked in Sandy, Utah, where she quickly established a busy practice working with patients. She has combined Eastern and Western medical practices, complementing each other by using the best research and knowledge of both philosophies. 

Recognizing the need for further autonomy and growth, Melissa decided to venture independently in 2024.

Melissa is married to Michael, and together, they have three children: three dogs, two cats, eight chickens, and two ducks. Melissa enjoys gardening, astronomy, eclipse-chasing, biking, walking, spending time outdoors, and playing games with her family.
