Lifestyle Medicine Program

The goal of the LMP is to treat the whole person – the mind, body and lifestyle – not the symptoms.

Our proprietary program was developed by our leading Lifestyle Medicine physician. Over the course of 12 weeks, your LMP team (including a physician, nutritionist, health counselor, exercise specialist, and care concierge) works in partnership with you to develop and implement a Healthy Living Plan.

The plan is tailored to you and what you feel confident and capable of changing.  Step by step, small changes turn into lasting, sustainable results. Patients who follow their plan often see quick and significant improvement in their health.

Deborah Melendez

Dr. Melendez discovered her guiding principle in the jungles of Bolivia. While doing field research on tuberculosis patients, she was stunned to discover that patients weren’t completing their treatment, despite it being fully paid for by the government.

Deborah realized that patients need more than the right prescription. They need the right doctor and the right motivation. Simply, a consultation with Deborah is a masterclass in motivation for the body, mind and spirit.


“I see the whole person not just a medical profile. I treat the whole person not just a medical symptom. Let me help you live longer, happier, and healthier.”


Dr. Melendez is a board-certified family medicine physician. She began her medical career attaining honors in Biology at Wellesley College, before earning her medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX.

She completed her internship at the Conroe Medical Education Foundation program and finished her residency at The Methodist Hospital in Houston in 2007. Over the past 14 years, Dr. Melendez has worked in private group practices, solo practice, and large federally-funded health centers. She is skilled at managing complex patients with acute and chronic problems.


Dr. Sida Yan

Dr. Sida Yan served on the front lines in Urgent Care during the pandemic, working 12-hour shifts in crisis conditions, all with a baby at home. Her husband built a UV light sanitizing cupboard in their garage for her to use at the end of each shift. Sida carries this same sacrificial commitment as a Medici Primary Care Doctor. Her empathy, love and experience make her a doctor like no other.


“I am profoundly committed to the health and happiness of my patients.”


Dr. Yan is a board-certified family medicine physician. She attended St. Louis University School of Medicine in her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. After medical school, she joined her husband in San Antonio, where he was stationed as an active-duty Air Force officer. Sida completed her family medicine residency at UT

Health San Antonio and continues to enjoy practicing evidence-based medicine specifically tailored to each of her patient’s needs.

Dr. Thomas’ training and off-the-charts people skills make her an extraordinarily effective psychiatrist.

“I truly care about you. Helping you achieve mental health is my calling and I will serve you at your pace. I will walk alongside you patiently and compassionately.”
