“My goal as a Nurse Practitioner is to provide a supportive and caring environment to encourage patients to feel comfortable discussing their expectations and concerns. I believe that it is important to work together with the patient to create a plan with realistic expectations that leads to natural looking, exciting results.
By combining an extensive knowledge of human anatomy with a sense of symmetry and proportion, the patient’s desired look can be achieved. Helping patients achieve their goals and leave our office feeling refreshed is extremely fulfilling to me!” As a Nurse Practitioner for Dr. Birely, Melissa Streett administers the injectables, such as Botox and Dysport as well as various fillers.
