The field of preventative and integrative medicine is complex and has many multi-syllabic and often unintelligible words. This rapidly growing field leaves both doctors and patients confused regarding which direction to pursue.
Some of the terms you may have heard include: Anti-Aging medicine, Regenerative medicine, Functional medicine, Integrative medicine, Lifestyle medicine, Stem Cell Therapy, Nutrigenomics, Pharmacogenetics, Biogenetics, Epigenetics, Metabolic and Nutritional medicine and Medical Aesthetics.
RejuvaWell’s medical director, Shawn Tassone, MD, PhD has pioneered the emerging field of Integrative Life Cycle Medicine to help align the overlaps in knowledge base and protocols and simplify understanding for patients and providers. He is Board Certified in Ob/Gyn and Integrative Medicine and is an expert in complementary and alternative health options.
The Short Version?
Genetics. Lifestyle. Environment.
The field of technological advances in our understanding and treatment of health and regeneration ranges from measuring actual aging versus chronological aging to stem cell therapy and/or platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections to help repair overused and damaged joints to diet, exercise and supplementation. It may include weight loss, human identical hormone topical therapy or advanced blood labs measuring macro and micronutrient levels helping us determine exactly which nutrients your body is deficient in; and then supplying them via vitamins, shots and/or IV infusions. We believe everyone should be tested in Pharmacogenetics before taking any medication.

How do we approach all of this?
After completing a series of questionnaires to help us determine whether we can help you, we allow you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tassone and our health coach. Dr. Tassone will already have reviewed your intake forms and will determine genetic and medical testing based upon your goals and his professional opinion. You will have an opportunity to meet and ask questions and decide whether this approach is right for you. Because of the intensive pre-consult work we perform, the consult charge is $400, which does go towards the annual fee should you choose this path.
Appropriate diagnostic labs will be performed. When results arrive, an initial 2-hour appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Tassone, who will have created a customized plan that will be implemented and managed by him and one of our health coaches. You will meet with Dr. Tassone or his PA-C or NP 2-3 times during the first year to measure progress and outcomes. You have complete access to medical and support staff.
