About Melanie

Village Health Partners is proud to offer the services of registered and licensed dietitian nutritionist, Melanie Wilder. Melanie has 20 years of experience in helping patients change habits and learn to make smart lifestyle choices. She works with her patients to adopt an individualized, balanced and realistic approach to eating, regular physical activity and improved life management. Melanie currently provides individual nutrition counseling for a variety of health conditions within Village Health Partners and teaches group classes related to health, wellness and weight management. Melanie recently became a Board Certified Specialist in Obesity and Weight Management.

She is passionate about food and physical activity and enjoys providing patients with the knowledge and tools they need to be more successful. She believes in developing individualized plans and finds fulfillment helping patients learn to eat and move in ways that fit their own lifestyles. Melanie reminds patients that there is no magic formula for weight loss or a single method that works for everyone; changing habits takes hard work and commitment, however, it is liberating to remove the rigid rules of “diets” and learn to eat and move more intuitively. Melanie teaches skills based on science that help patients learn to achieve and, most importantly, maintain better health. She encourages her patients to make their personal reasons for living a healthier lifestyle a daily focus and to keep a written list of these in a prominent place for motivation.

Prior to joining Village Health Partners, Melanie started her career in dietetics at Zale Lipshy Hospital in Dallas before working at the Cooper Institute in Dallas as a research associate and dietitian.

Reviews

"Dr. Woolbert was attentive and spent far longer than most doctors would have. She took the time to really chat through my concerns with me and is helping me get back on track with my health. Her genuine affection is something that is so rare nowadays in our hustle economy, so I really appreciated her time and attention."

"Dr. Sander Gothard was recommend to me by a family friend. Very pleased they told me about him. I am now blessed for having Dr. Gothard has my physician; he is professional, courteous, great bedside manners, takes times to go over test results and answer questions, he listens to your concerns. One of the many things that makes him a great doctor is that he does not push pills/medications, instead discussing not only the best options for the needed care, but also the plan to get you healthy again. If you like having quick access to things; his practice offers the option to use their app to retrieve results, correspond with them and more. If not, the office staff provides good customer service. Dr. Gothard’s medical assistant is Bre, she too is courteous and professional. Dr. Gothard and Bre make a great team. I have recommended Dr. Gothard to many people I know. He deserves more than 5 stars. The world needs more physicians like him. I highly recommend Dr. Sander Gothard."

"I was thankful that I could get in with such short notice. My regular doc was not available but I was able to get in to see Nurse Practitioner Kristen Mahurin who was an absolute rockstar. Super kind, very attentive and was quick to diagnose my bronchitis. I felt 1000% better within hours. I would not hesitate to book with Kristen again. "
