Melissa McCarty, ND

Dr McCarty has been helping women learn about their bodies and use natural & integrative therapies since 2006. She grew up in Louisiana, moved to Seattle for medical school training in naturopathic medicine and completed a 2 year residency at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health before starting her own practice. She enjoys spending time with and getting to know her patients, learning their personal and health histories to aid in discovery of the root causes of symptoms. "I believe the body has the power to heal itself, given the proper support, and that it takes a thorough investigation to learn what that support should be, as it is unique to every individual. There is no cookie cutter approach to true health!"


“Dr. McCarty is a highly trained naturopathic professional who has great empathy and cares deeply about her female patients. She takes the time to listen to her patients and then constructs tailored treatment plans. Dr. McCarty’s care does not stop with the construction of a treatment plan, she supports the patient through ongoing follow-ups visits to determine if the plan is obtaining the desired results or need tweaking. Her office staff is professional, responsive and proactive.” – SB

“I don’t have words big enough to praise Dr. Melissa McCarty.

My family and I have known her for many years. To say that she’s helped us in a way that no other doctor has is an understatement.
My daughter suffered from very painful stomach problems. Nobody could figure out what was wrong until we met Dr. McCarty.She literally changed her life.

As for me, she helped me thru hormonal and postmenopausal problems with great success.
She’s an inexhaustible source of information. I always wonder how she can retain everything she learns and reads! She always comes up with a solution for everything. She’s known for being so knowledgeable and ahead of everyone else as far as new treatments are concerned.

But it’s not only her knowledge, expertise and experience that I love. She’s so sweet, friendly, patient, compassionate and caring. I always look forward to seeing her.

There’s no other doctor I trust and love as much as Dr McCarty. I always try to recommend her and will keep doing so.

Thank you so much Dr McCarty!” – MS

her!” -JV 

“Dr. McCarty is hands down my favorite naturopath I’ve had the pleasure of seeing for my women’s health issues. She was always kind, helped me understand the science behind my health plan, and had the most welcoming office. She would still be my doctor if I hadn’t moved from Seattle. I would recommend her to anyone.” – LH

“Dr Melisa McCarty is an amazing and very kind doctor.
