Short Description

My name is Bri Bardi and I am currently a patient of Dr. Mel. Over the past year he has become like family to me because of his patient approach and care; so much so that I am helping him look for help in the clinic so that he can focus on patients. I have seen multiple Naturopathic Doctors for my autoimmune disease and no one spends more time and attention to their patients more then Dr. Mel. He will not let a patient walk out his door until they tell him they feel 80% better after a treatment, no matter the time. He is looking to retire in the next few years and hoping to find someone who cares for their patients the way he does in order to sell them the practice. He is also willing to discuss selling the practice currently as well. He is bombarded right now with new patients and can't keep up while also spending the quality time he dedicates with each patient. My hopes in writing this is to get across how amazing Dr. Mel is and the opportunity it would be to work with him.
