Jay Pennock, MD is a board-certified Emergency Medicine Physician with over 20 years’ experience in the Emergency Department. In that capacity he has witnessed what happens to patients when their choices over time work against their own health. “Dr. Jay” as his clients call him, utilizes a Functional Medicine approach to find out what is causing illness and suffering and treat the underlying issues.  Empowering people to change their lives and make better decisions about their health is really what it’s all about.  After many years, the approach of this practice has led its clients to much healthier lives, and improvement or reversal of their medical conditions, and reduction or elimination of their medications.

 

 Functional Medicine focuses on sleep, nutrition, movement, and stress reduction along with hormone balancing and inflammation reduction to optimize people’s health. Clients also see Dr. Jay for weight loss programs and Alzheimer’s’ prevention and reversal.  Continually gaining medical knowledge and insight through ongoing education, Dr. Jay has developed new, effective, patient-centered medical care. Now offered at Carmel Wellness and Aesthetics this approach will create an interactive and “wholistic” approach to living longer, healthier lives.

 

Today, Carmel Wellness and Aesthetics strives to help clients look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside.
