Meet Jessica Miller, MD

Jessica Miller, MD – Medical Director
Integrative & Functional Medicine Specialist

My Philosophy

Optimal health is based on many factors and is exceptionally complex. Our health and well-being are dependent on the relationship between our genetic makeup, daily exposure to toxins, environmental allergens, emotional and physical stressors, gut health, and nutritional status.

My goal is to incorporate my traditional Western medical training in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with a more integrative approach. Traditional medicine typically treats the patient’s symptoms rather than diagnosing the root cause/s of the disease (illness). In doing so, we, as physicians, do not always address the underlying issues and driving forces for disease states. In many cases, it is not possible to completely determine the reason for a disease state. However, by altering factors such as diet, environmental exposures, gut health, and physical activity, it is possible to modify the severity of disease expression.

In my practice, I began seeing a significant number of patients with arthritis, auto-immune diseases, and musculoskeletal disorders that significantly impacted their quality of life.

Having always been interested in the role diet, exercise and environment plays in health, I have studied many hours of lectures in numerous areas of integrative medicine and decided to formalize my training through a fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona.

Over the past several years, I have begun integrating my knowledge into my practice and have had success in helping refractory patients manage their symptoms and disease states. My goal is to give you the knowledge in order to control your health, rather than letting your health control you.
