Melanie sees patients at our brand-new West Plano Medical Village location. It’s less than a minute away from Legacy Medical Village, where she previously saw patients.
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.

"The most seamless experience I've had from start to finish. My 2 children are new patients and we had an easy time scheduling the appt. Thanks to a savvy and helpful woman who created a patient profile. Dr. Abraham was kind, easy to talk to, and accommodating. I was so impressed with the entire experience."
"Absolutely wonderful doctor! She was very thorough and never appeared rushed. She talked with both myself and my daughter. I am happy to finally have found a primary care provider in Texas for my children. Thank you Dr. Abraham!"
"Both my child and I had a great experience. The nurse who administered the flu shot was so gentle that my child did not even realize they got a shot! I appreciate the gentleness as well as the very happy/welcoming environment. As always, we LOVE this place!!"
"I have been seeing Dr. Malini Hebbur since I moved to Texas. My kids both love to see her and in Texas allergies are so high all the time and the doc explains what to do and not to do and gives prescription medicine only if necessary. When I follow her my kids recover in 1-2 days whether it's allergies or cold, cough, and fever. She always patiently listens to your concerns and doubts and clarifies each and every doubt and also educates you for future so that you know what exactly has to be done by not panicking. I am so glad and happy that she is my kid's doctor. I would highly recommend her."
"Alexa is very polite, attentive, and provides excellent feedback and suggestions. I would recommend her to anybody."
