Melissa Greer, D.O.
Melissa Greer, D.O. was born and raised in Indiana. She lived and practiced in the Midwest before coming to Chester County, PA to practice family medicine in the fall of 2015. She has a BS in biology and French from Butler University in Indianapolis, IN and studied medicine at Midwestern University outside of Chicago, IL. She was one of two students honored in her medical school class with a three year undergraduate research and teaching fellowship in osteopathic manual medicine with research focus on cranial osteopathy. Her family medicine residency was completed at MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, IL. She is board certified in family medicine and certified in anthroposophic medicine.
Dr Greer’s first holistic family medicine practice was in south central Wisconsin. Her work there focused on anthroposophic primary care and the development of a slow food-slow medicine hospital wellness program with emphasis on organic gardening practices. She has been a student of the methodology of anthroposophy since 1999 with special interest in women and children’s health, the holistic understanding of mood disorders, oil dispersion bath therapy, external applications and the role of agricultural practices in human health.
She is dedicated to the Carah Medical Arts initiative and knows from personal and clinical experience how much the anthroposophic way of looking can benefit one's own health and community. In her free time she enjoys Persian poetry, biodynamic gardening, hiking and cross country skiing.
