NEWS

Our Promise

Our promise is to help each individual, be they women or men, young or old, to maintain continuous health and optimally age.

NEWS is an independent medical office that believes, if guided wisely, "Continuous Health and Optimal Aging" can be attainable by most who try.  
We don’t believe "Chronic Illness" should be the accepted norm as we age and have dedicated our lives to helping our patients attain Wellness.
Dr. Melville and Dr. Schultz have been practicing wellness medicine since 1994 when they discovered Dr Jeffery Bland and embraced his concept of Functional Medicine. A system that digs for the "triggers" of disease and helps people walk back out of those triggers. They are not just satisfied with knowing the "usual and customary" drug or surgery to prescribe given a particular diagnosis. They want to use a "work around" to help prevent the dis-ease. In many ways, they belong to the group of original Bio-Hackers at the turn of this century.
They believe that by educating you in these Principles and utilizing traditional medicine when necessary, a 21st Century paradigm of individualized wellness and health can be attained.
             Their vision of "Continuous Health" until you just wear out, "all at once and nothing more" is what Wellness Medicine and NEWS is about.
