MEET DR. GRAY
At Integrative Pain and Wellness Center in Southlake, TX, Dr. Melanie Gray serves as one of our skilled physicians and osteopathic medicine specialists. Originally going into medicine so she could continue to work with ballet dancers throughout her career, she discovered her passion for serving people and their families early on after graduating from medical school. As a physician, Dr. Gray's goal is to help each person in her care reach their fullest potential and maintain a comfortable, healthy lifestyle.
EDUCATION and TRAINING
Before pursuing a career in medicine, Dr. Gray performed as a professional dancer with the Boston Ballet and the Texas Ballet Theater. While dancing, she completed her undergraduate degree in biology at the University of North Texas. She then attended Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Parker, CO where she earned her medical degree. Following this accomplishment, she participated in a residency at the UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth, TX. Once she completed her post-graduate training, Dr. Gray worked as a family physician for several years. As she transitions from primary care to osteopathic manipulative medicine, Dr. Gray looks forward to providing a more wellness-based approach to health, medicine, and life to her patients.
SPECIALTIES and EXPERTISE
As a trained doctor of osteopathy, Dr. Gray is more than qualified to perform a range of comprehensive wellness treatments for our patients, including medical weight loss, direct primary care, osteopathic manipulative medicine, aesthetic services, certain sexual health treatments, preventive and lifestyle health, and regenerative therapy. With her years of medical training and experience, Dr. Gray strives to provide innovative solutions to debilitating problems that can have a negative effect on one's total wellness. Working alongside Dr. Matthew Barker, she uses holistic methods to reduce an individual's pain and enhance their overall well-being.
When she's not hard at work in the office, you can often find Dr. Gray being active outdoors or in the studio where she practices yoga and dance. She has two young children who keep her equally as busy with their own sports and recitals. Dr. Gray met her husband when she first moved to Texas and has spent a long, wonderful 20 years with him so far. The couple and their young family are thrilled to now call the Dallas-Fort Worth area their home.
"Dr. Gray has been my doctor for almost 4 years now and I absolutely love her. She diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and when my pain management doctor was fired she took over and has done a much better job at controlling my pain. Not only is she a complete sweetheart she is intelligent and truly cares about her patients. Thank you for everything you do for me Dr. Gray, I’d drive to Alaska to see you! Kathy Powell"
"She is the best doctor I ever had"
"I’ve been seen by both Dr. Gray and Dr. Barker and they’re both extremely knowledgeable and kind. They both care about helping their patients feel their best and getting to the root of the issue. I wouldn’t place my health in any other hands."
"Dr. Barker DO and Dr. Melanie Gray DO are on another level. I started OMM (Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine) treatments about a year ago for a variety of impact injuries from sports, motor vehicle accidents having significant pain, pressure, nausea, irregular heartbeats, lower back pain, torso discomfort from scoliosis, neck pain, headaches etc. Since seeing Dr. Barker and Dr Melanie I can say that their tactics of intervention were impeccable and noticeably different from any Doctors I had been to in the past. What I have loved the most is how passionate they are about their work. They take their time to address every need but most importantly... they listened. Even after the first treatments I could tell they were onto something. After a few treatments, 90% of the time I had no symptoms. The 10% was usually sleeping wrong or me doing something silly but even so, my body started resolving irritants quicker. Then I reinjured myself after a electric bike accident and had a full blown torn labrum we later found with imaging. One exosome injection later, I felt again 90% improvement from one treatment! I decided to try another round several months later and BAM! Now I have my FULL range of motion, stable and pain free. As a Massage Therapist, you can understand why this is so important... Now I feel like I have my life back. I have confidence in every step and every breathe. Thank you Dr. Barker and Dr. Melanie Gray for always being there when I need you most! Thank you for fixing me when I was broken."
"Dr Gray is great at what she does! Give them a try."
