Melissa Lang is an experienced and dedicated Women’s Healthcare Nurse Practitioner, offering Functional Medicine and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement services through our office. Her initial education was completed at Grayson College in Denton, which gave her the opportunity to become a labor and delivery nurse in Tyler at Mother Frances Hospital. While serving in this capacity, a well-respected OB/GYN took notice of her special gifts with patients and helped arrange a full scholarship for her to advance her training through the Women’s Healthcare Nurse Practitioner program at UT Southwestern in Dallas. She is Board-Certified as well.
After completing her degree in 1997, she joined her respected mentor in his group practice. Fr the next sixteen years until his retirement in 2013, she worked under his supervision as she built her own practice of over 4,000 loyal patients who relied on her for gynecological care and wise counsel in multiple areas of women’s health. After her mentor closed his practice, Melissa served in several locations in Colorado, helping women to improve their health and wellness by teaching about lifestyle modification, nutrition, and weight loss management.
“I worked independently for a large, private practice which included 8 MDs. The focus of my practice was on adolescent/adult gynecology, birth control, bioidentical hormone replacement, weight loss, and primary care.”
Melissa Lang grew up in Fort Worth and after practicing in Colorado, returned home to Texas and works along-side Dr. Connie Casad in Dallas. Melissa is post-menopausal herself and realized the importance and difference that Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy made for her. At Dr. Casad’s office, Melissa is able to use her expertise to help many women like herself.
