Meet the Doctor
Julianna Lindsey, MD MBA FACP
Dr. Lindsey is Board Certified in Internal Medicine* and has actively practiced medicine for over 20 years. In addition to clinical work, she has spent the past 15 years serving in executive leadership roles at Fortune level companies. During her time in national leadership roles, she experienced the dysfunction of our healthcare (sick-care) system on a large scale and now wishes to serve people by offering a better alternative through personalized care and attention.
Dr. Lindsey believes the health and well-being of people should be first consideration and where technology may advance prevention and treatment, it should be used responsibly and in an evidence-based manner. There are advancements available today which have never before been available. She brings beneficial advances to her patients.
Great medical care requires thoughtful focus, caring, and strong relationships. Unfortunately, "one-size-fits-all" medicine is the norm rather than exception. Having spent her career practicing acute care medicine (ICU, ED, Hospitalist) she knows many patients are overmedicated, having been given another medication, antibiotic, or steroid whenever seeking care- while their overall health and wellness declines until they end up in hospital or sadly worse. Dr. Lindsey believes there is a better, more natural way to go about living and practicing medicine- a way that does not involve trial-and-error medicine, overtreatment, overtesting, or overprescribing.
Finally, the digital age brings great opportunity as well as risk. Digitization of the medical record has been predictably accompanied by privacy breaches and ransomware. Not only are health-systems being held for ransom, but individual patients are now being targeted by hackers with threats to expose health records publically if "ransom" demands are not met. Patients now have limited control over what happens to their most private information- including genetic information that may be shared without consent. Dr. Lindsey partners with people who value their privacy, helping guide them through privacy issues and any genetic/genomic testing which may be needed, in a responsible way.
*What is Internal Medicine? Internal medicine physicians are trained to treat common general medical conditions in adults while having significant experience in each of the internal medicine subspecialties (such as endocrinology, rheumatology, cardiology, and infectious diseases) and neurology. Internists are required to gain adequate experience in psychiatry, dermatology, ophthalmology, office gynecology, otorhinolaryngology, non-operative orthopedics, palliative medicine, sleep medicine, geriatrics, and rehabilitation medicine to comprehensively care for adults.
