My Story

Melissa Trotman, CRNP
Nurse Practitioner
Institute of Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner

    I know what it feels like to be a patient in need of a healthcare provider who listens. I found Functional Medicine when I was in search of a resolution to my own health challenges and was failed by a conventional approach to medicine. Through a Functional Medicine approach, I was able to take control of my life and rediscover vital health. Everything I had learned helped me thrive through breast cancer treatment and fueled my interest in using a comprehensive and holistic approach to breast cancer and survivorship.

    More than 15 years of experience as a Nurse Practitioner at Johns Hopkins Hospital, my current work at Sinai Hospital and my extensive education in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine has given me the foundation to empower you to discover wellness and vitality the same way I have.  I am passionate about helping people to understand the connection between their nutrition, relationships, environment and other lifestyle choices to their health. It is my mission to guide each patient along the journey of discovering the root causes of their symptoms and disease and help them develop a plan to feel better and be well again.

    I feel that my work is a privilege and I enjoy a great work-life balance. I spend my free time with my family, riding my Peloton, practicing yoga, stand-up paddle boarding and enjoying the beautiful Annapolis area.
