Dr. Grose retired in February, 2022. We are deeply grateful to her for pioneering Functional Medicine in Houston in the early 1980’s as a lone wolf when the path was not clear. She has transformed the lives of so many patients in our community and paved the way for a new era of Functional Medicine providers like Dr. Rowley and Ms. Bassett. We love you Dr. Grose!

Health is a vital part of life, and for Functional Medicine nurse practitioner Melissa Bassett, it is the focus of her work. She believes that health is more than just the absence of illness; it is about vitality, joyful and meaningful relationships, beauty, peace, and flourishing in life. Each person’s definition of health is unique, so Ms. Bassett takes a comprehensive approach to helping her patients achieve their goals. She looks at each body system and considers how each system affects the whole person as she seeks the root cause of the problem. This approach, called Functional Medicine, has been a staple of her practice since 2007.
