Joanne ("JP") Pizzino, MD, MPH, FACOEM


After a personal healing "miracle" in 1997, I have dedicated my life to learning everything about healing beyond what was taught in medical school. 

MY MISSION: I contribute to the transformation of our cultural ideas about health and healthcare from a system that sees you as "broken" in need of "fixing" to one that provides you the tools of empowerment to heal yourself. 

MY VISION: I hold a vision of YOU in love with your life and having vibrant well-being to pursue the life of your dreams.
