Your primary contact will be Chris Knox. Medical care is provided by Chris Knox PA-C, under the direct supervision of Nicholas Beaulieu, MD.
Your HIPnation membership includes direct contact with Chris Knox, an annual physical with routine blood work, preventive care, sick visits, and a real relationship. You are not a number and will never be treated as such.
From Chris: “My philosophy, and medical opinion, is that our bodies, when given the appropriate support, tend to heal themselves. As such, my approach is to help patients make lifestyle changes to promote optimal health, before using pharmaceutical or surgical interventions, when this is safe and appropriate. I am a Primary Care Provider with additional training in Functional Medicine, and part of my practice is as a Functional Medicine specialist. If you would like to hear more about this part of my practice and how Functional Medicine Services can be added to your membership at a discounted rate of $50/month (in addition to your HIPnation membership), I can provide that information for you.”
