About the Institute

A pioneer in health and wellness, Dr. Barnet Meltzer has one of the longest running medical clinics in Southern California.  In his extensive career, Dr. Meltzer has seen more than 60,000 patients and conducted nearly 200,000 consultations.

Since opening his practice in the vibrant community of San Diego in 1972, Dr. Meltzer’s mission has been to empower his patients with tools and strategies to achieve long-term vitality, wellness, and happiness.  Passionate about expanding the reach and scope of this mission, Dr. Meltzer has launched the Meltzer Wellness Institute (MWI) in 2009. MWI represents an evolution of Dr. Meltzer’s extensive clinical experience and decades of research, offering resources and coaching programs that extend far beyond the typical doctor-patient relationship.  Through its signature wellness programs and interactive, online community, MWI provides a wealth of valuable information and resources on health and wellness that, for the first time, are accessible outside of Dr. Meltzer’s patient consultations. These resources include inspirational, motivational, and educational tools to guide people to be rich in life and achieve their wellness goals.

As part of the growth and extension of MWI, Dr. Meltzer is proud to announce that his son, Jordan Meltzer, will serve as the President of the institute.  In addition to bringing a strong business background to the venture—including six years of investment banking and private equity investment experience with Goldman Sachs and Friedman, Fleischer & Lowe—Jordan is pursuing his PhD in Integrated Health Sciences, and is integrally involved in the development and expansion of the institute’s wellness programs.
