Dr. Melina Youngs
Dr. Melina "Mel" Youngs...is a longtime resident of Cape Coral. In fact there is a unique story behind her 916 Cape Coral Parkway clinic. It was the same location her parents owned and operated the famous YUMS ice cream store for many years. Her practice has been built by getting people well, one person at a time. Good news travels fast and patients who received relief from their pain referred their friends and family to Dr. Mel. Her patients have become her extended family and they enjoy the extra care and concern that she provides, much like the Doctor- patient relationship in the old days.
Dr. Mel offers...lifestyle modification coaching to her patients that can change the way they feel through nutrition counseling, exercise instruction as well as ergonomic advice. As a nationally certified group fitness instructor and former aerobics and kickboxing instructor, she has made a full time commitment to teaching others how to achieve healthy lifestyles. Her approach to health care reflects the newest research in health preservation and longevity.
She teaches her patients the art of maintaining their health rather than just treating disease.
Dr. Caren Polk
Dr. Caren Polk hails to us from Rockland County, New York, where she was born and raised. After graduating college from State University of New York at Stony Brook in Long Island, she then attended chiropractic school in Marietta, Georgia at Life Chiropractic College. Dr. Polk loves her doctorate degree, however, she says that the best part about chiropractic school is that she met her future husband there!
After graduating, Dr. Polk moved to Sarasota, Florida, where she performed her internship with a pediatric chiropractic specialist. Dr. Polk and her husband then moved to Fort Myers in 1999, where they opened their own office. Anticipating the birth of their second daughter, Dr. Polk sold her office in 2005 to be able "to be a better mom to my kids and have more time for them." Dr. Polk joined our group in May, 2006. She not only brings to us her chiropractic experience, but her bubbly, enthusiastic personality, as well!
