Dr. Iyer has always had a keen interest in preventative medicine, anti-aging medicine, hormonal health, holistic alternatives, stress management, and medical aesthetics combined, these fields help you feel and look younger.
She looks at finding the root cause of your issues rather than offering band-aid solutions. Whether it is aging and feeling older; or sagging skin: she believes that finding out ‘what is causing this’ and restoring the process is what will give you lasting solutions. This approach is evident in her own life, functioning, and appearance.
Dr. Iyer and her team of colleagues believe the most comprehensive health solutions utilize both the best holistic medical options and the best conventional medical options. All are based on science and technology. She believes you should attend to all aspects of your health that enable you to live your best life, and maintains that every aspect of your health should be handled by an individual who is a trained expert in the field.
Dr. Iyer is therefore delighted to work with an integrative team featuring specialists who are all dedicated to helping you explore the rewards of life when you feel better and look better. As a doctor, she has always been far more interested in treating every patient as a truly unique individual, rather than just another patient whose symptoms put them into a particular but not very personalized profile.

You Deserve A Better Quality of Life
All those years of writing prescriptions, I realized my patients weren’t really getting BETTER. A drug for this and a drug for that…the same dose for everyone, even though every person is a unique individual. Then I discovered a Better way!
My own health suffered. I was prescribed anti-depressants for my many symptoms because all my tests were normal. I had pain. Every day, from my hair to my feet. 17+ migraines a month, and chronic muscle and body pain which screamed of fibromyalgia. I knew there was something else wrong. My sleep was not refreshing. My fatigue was overwhelming. I struggled to participate in my home life, with everything spent during the work day. My brain was foggy, I struggled to get rid of the ever-growing belly fat. I felt frazzled. I couldn’t imagine turning 40 if my early 30’s felt like this.
Today, I am in my 50’s and I can do more than I did in my 30’s.
I enjoy the outdoors. I cherish the time with my children, and love being able to participate fully in their lives.
This is what Functional Medicine, and Precision Medicine, have allowed me to achieve in my own personal health. I’m excited to help you access your best health, and live powerfully doing whatever it is you choose. Not what you are forced to do because you struggle with various symptoms, and are told ‘you’re just getting older’, or ‘it’s all in your head’.
