Ann Meyer, D.O. FAAFP
Dr. Ann Meyer, DO, is a medical doctor who is widely respected for her dedicated and caring approach to medicine. She is an outside-the-box thinker who works to guide our members towards independence through education and empowerment. Instead of focusing on symptom management, she seeks to help our members understand the true underlying nature of their disharmony in their body. She strongly believes in a medical approach that integrates care of the mind, body and spirit.
Dr. Meyer joined the Holistic Wellness Center after working in (and being very frustrated by) the conventional, “disease-management” model of care for over 30 years. At the Holistic Wellness Center, she works closely with our practitioner team, including Dr. Kristien Boyle, D.O.M., AP., (FL) L.Ac.,(SC), and Dr. Jeffrey Matz, DC, in our programs of care to ensure that our members receive a truly holistic approach. Her focus is on preventive and proactive medicine.
Dr. Meyer is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and is Board certified in Family Medicine. She is American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine certified in Integrative Holistic Medicine. She completed her internship at Youngstown Osteopathic Hospital in Youngstown, Ohio and her residency at State University of New York in Buffalo, New York.
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease through a systems-oriented approach that engages both the practitioner and clinic member in a therapeutic partnership. It shifts the traditional disease-centered focus of conventional medicine to a more patient-centered approach. This addresses people as a whole, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
