Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.
Dr. Jennifer Vineyard
“Healthcare should be inclusive and comprehensive. I believe in a foundation of healthy lifestyle, and a direct relationship with you. I respect your preferences so that we can create shared goals for your health. I empower you with the information to improve your health. You should have someone who is invested in your health and wellness. This is a place where you will feel welcomed, cared for, and truly valued. Imagine a physician who spends time with you, is available for your phone call, and answers your emailed questions. All that was good about the old-fashioned doctor-patient relationship, brought into today’s world of accessibility, at an affordable price, without third party interference. This is why I love Direct Primary Care.”
Jennifer Vineyard, DO, is a board-certified Internist. Her interest in nutrition, immune function, and health led her to study microbiology at Arizona State University, where she graduated summa cum laude. At Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine (Midwestern University), she studied medicine and treatment of the whole person, including additional training in manual medicine (osteopathic manipulative treatment or OMT). She concurrently earned a Master’s degree in Bioethics. During her internal medicine residency at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, in Portland, Oregon, she was the resident member of the Regional Ethics Committee. She completed a Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellowship at Cedars-Sinai/West Los Angeles VA. She has worked in the hospital, the clinic, and in the home setting. She enjoys helping people understand disease process(es) and how to manage/improve their health. She believes the body has an innate tendency toward healing and addresses the whole person in restoring and promoting health and longevity. Much of disease today is brought on by lifestyle, and restoring balance often makes the biggest difference in our health. Dr. Vineyard focuses on integrated care, including mind-body medicine and using nutrition and non-pharmacologic treatments whenever appropriate and possible (nutrition, exercise, OMT, meditation, etc.). She keeps up with the latest science in food and medicine, as well as longevity research, intermittent and prolonged fasting, to provide evidence-based recommendations, and believes in personalized healthcare, focusing on the individual.
