Complimentary Health Evaluation

Melinda Poland RNC, MSN Women’s Health Care Nurse Practitioner has 30 years’ experience in nursing with the last 23 years as a nurse practitioner specializing in obstetrics and gynecology.  She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing in 1994 and a Master’s degree in nursing in 1996, both obtained at University of Colorado Health Sciences center in Denver.   She earned her certification as a “First Surgical Assistant” in 2013 from the National Institute of First Assisting in Denver CO.   She was inducted into Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society of Nursing in 1994.


During her career, she has worked with high risk obstetrics, and women from puberty through post menopause.  Special interests and experience include the areas of thyroid disorder, metabolic syndrome including PCOS, infertility, menstrual disorders, breast disorders, genetic screening for cancer risks, contraception, sexual dysfunction including vaginismus, vulvar skin disorders, and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.  She has vast experience working with compounding pharmacies to provide custom individualized hormone replacement for over 20 years.  Hormone therapy can include a variety of routes depending of the needs of the patient, and can include sub lingual tablets, oral tablets/capsules, creams/gels, patches and pellets.   She uses serum evaluation, saliva and blood spot testing for endocrine evaluation in conjunction with patient symptom assessment to monitor and evaluate therapeutic outcomes.   She likes to incorporate nutrition, exercise, herbal therapy and nutraceuticals as a vital part of the therapeutic plan when helping women achieve their health goals.


Melinda has also participated in public speaking engagements on menopause and adolescent gynecology over the years and was featured as a guest on Fox 21 news.  She is a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine and is actively taking advanced practice modules to further her knowledge in this area.   Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease.
