Melinda Silva, M.D.

I am Dr. Melinda Silva and my goal is to help you reach your optimal health through hormone balance and to help you to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.  I have over 18 years of clinical experience and as a Board Certified Physician in Family Medicine, and I have taken care of patients of all ages and in all stages of life. In an effort to help myself get my life back, I learned the proper use of bio-identical hormones. You don’t have to feel lousy as you are approaching midlife. Many people suffer from symptoms of hormonal changes because they don’t know there is an alternative. When I started to suffer perimenopause symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, low libido, irritability, and mood changes, I sought help from my doctor. I was prescribed birth control pills and Prozac and decided I needed to find an alternative treatment. After bio-identical hormone therapy, I felt like myself again.

Patient Testimonials

After only 2 months of following your care and using the thyroid and hormones and vitamins that you prescribed, Veronica came back from the dead! She was able to wake up. She had a little energy. She could walk better. The light was coming back in her eyes. Her hair was getting back some shine and wasn’t falling out so bad. At 4 months Veronica is so much better. She sleeps about 9 or 10 hours (always has) and can wake up quickly and can get dressed and brush her own hair. Her strength is almost all back. She has been outside. We even had our first yoga class together. She lasted all 90 minutes!! I can’t thank you enough. I love my wife and look forward to many years with her and you as her doctor and advisor.

Sincerely, Jim hart

My personal experience has been life altering. I’m fifty-four and the weight loss remains a challenge, but the hot flashes, night sweats and extreme irritability are almost completely gone. My libido has returned and I’m laughing again, cooking, enjoying my life and finding the creative energy to stay engaged with new friends and new projects.

It took me ten years to get through my mid-life passage and I only regret not finding relief earlier.
