Meet Dr. Melissa Mueller: Forward Los Angeles’ Newest Physician

Join their team today!

Below is an article originally written by PowerToFly Partner Forward, and published on April 26, 2018. Go to Forward's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

We're thrilled to introduce our newest Forward Los Angeles physician, Dr. Melissa Mueller. Previously, Melissa attended medical school in Charleston, South Carolina and completed her residency in New York City. She joins Forward from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she practiced internal medicine.

What first drew you to practice medicine?

I found my love of science and biology at a young age, and through this, discovered my passion for the human body and healing. I really enjoy helping members understand their symptoms and how their bodies work.

What areas of interest do you have as a physician?

I'm interested in lifestyle modifications and helping members nurture healthy habits. A person's lifestyle plays a such big role in their health, and ensuring healthy habits can really go a long way to both prevent and treat many medical issues.

What do you value most in your relationships with members?

I enjoy taking time to get to know members and to understand their health perspective. I value the importance of developing such a partnership with members in order to help maximize their health and wellness.

What is your experience of the current healthcare industry? Where would you most like to see improvements or changes?

I feel that the healthcare industry needs to get back to supporting physicians in being able to spend more time with members. This will help ensure that members have a better understanding of their health and are more able to set and reach their wellness goals.

Why did you decide to join Forward?

I'm very excited about incorporating technology in order to deliver the highest quality medical care, and to utilize this technology to motivate and empower members to be the healthiest they can be.

What has struck you as most different in the care here?

In my time here, I've already seen how the technology Forward has built can facilitate developing individual relationships with each of the members that I see. Rather than having to rush members through 5 minute appointments, the tech here has really allowed me to approach my care from a more personalized and holistic angle.

What's one fun fact about you that our members might not know?

I am an avid tennis fan!

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.
