Melissa Ferrari, PA, is a physician assistant within the gastroenterology department with a dedicated focus on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). She is experienced in the complicated nuances of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease patients and has dedicated her career to their care. She works directly with IBD physician experts in order to provide a personalized approach for every patient. 

Melissa believes positive outcomes are directly related to education and open communication. A patient that understands their condition, and the reason medications are being prescribed, is much more likely to be an active participant in their care. Melissa prides herself in providing excellent education and confirming management plans are mutually agreed upon and implemented.  

Melissa is also very involved with the IBD community through the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and participates in many events for the Greater San Diego Area chapter. 

When she’s not focused on the health care needs of her patients, Melissa is a true outdoors (wo)man. You’ll find her backpacking, hiking, camping, mountain biking and slowly crossing all the National Forests off her bucket list.
