Meet the Doctor

Dr. Melissa Dybala, ND, DC

Dr. Dybala received a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) degree as well as a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree from National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL. The ND degree is a course of study involving four years of post-graduate education in traditional and natural therapies in which students are trained to be primary care physicians. 

Dr. Dybala also holds a chiropractic license in Illinois which allows her to serve as a primary care physician. She combines the best of allopathic and alternative medicine by coordinating care with and referring patients to appropriate specialists when needed for consultations, imaging or lab work. She cannot prescribe medications or discontinue prescriptions for patients in the state of Illinois, but rather recommends supplements that may boost health and wellness. 

In addition to operating New Day Wellness Center, she served as a chief clinician for naturopathic medicine at the National University of Health Sciences (NUHS), where she supervised and evaluated naturopathic medical student interns and other clinicians, overseeing patient care and ensuring that standards of care were followed within the teaching clinic. She remains on the university's faculty, teaching courses in naturopathic theory, neurology, pathology, and business.

Dr. Dybala is a Chicagoland native who is the first in her family to get a college degree. She worked her way through college and received a bachelor of science degree from Governors State University. Before becoming a physician, she worked as a pharmacy technician for over a decade which gave her a perspective of pharmacology and allopathic treatments. This position fueled her drive and interest in the alternative medicine field as she saw a definite need for natural and conservative therapy integration within the field of conventional medicine

Her hobbies include camping, biking, watching movies, and taking care of her pets.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    For several years, I have suffered from migraines. The pain made it difficult to function, light intensified the pain and almost any activity was unbearable. I've tried many solutions: I saw several different chiropractors and even tried herbal remedies and acupuncture. From the first appointment with Dr. Dybala, she worked with me to figure out what my migraine triggers are. Dr. Dybala really takes the time to listen and work through any issues...

    I highly recommend Dr. Dybala as your naturopathic doctor. She is very caring and thorough when it comes to your complete health. I was always tired and had shortness of breath. Dr. Dybala had me get some tests related to my symptoms. After those tests, I found out I had a widow maker and needed heart bypass surgery. She has also helped me figure out how to get healthier. Dr. Dybala looks at not only symptoms but potential causes of issues to figure out a good plan...

    After we moved last spring, we were looking for a natural primary care physician for our two young boys. That's when we found Dr. Dybala! What a blessing! She takes time with us and really listens to help treat our family from the inside out. Whenever we've needed to see her right away, she has always made time. Her knowledge of working with and treating the whole person and getting to the cause of ailments is impressive. Dr. Dybala is a doctor for the whole family.

    What I appreciate most about Dr. Dybala is that she works diligently to get to the cause of my issues and then offers me several options for treatment. She will share insight as to how involved each treatment option may be or how long to expect for healing, but she lets me decide which one I feel is best for my body. I'm thrilled to be in the care of someone who treats the whole body and not just one particular symptom. She is empathetic, extremely dedicated to healing her patients...
