As a physician, Melissa understands the problems with our medical system. Melissa’s sensitivity to the frustration patients experience while trying to get the proper treatment and heal include her own experience guiding her father through a lengthy health crisis.
To address these concerns, Melissa created Hakim Health Partners (HHP), a health and wellness advisory practice designed to strengthen the doctor/patient relationship by providing medical support they can trust. People need someone who knows how the medical system works, and who works only for the patient.
Melissa graduated from The Mount Sinai School of Medicine with an MD in 1992 and completed her internship and residency training at St. Vincent’s Hospital in NYC and The Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC.
“Your health is not a “one size fits all” situation. Everyone deserves help finding the most appropriate treatment path. Being able to use my medical education in a was that gives my clients knowledge and a sense of peace is deeply rewarding.”
