Lisa M. West MD- Medical Director
Dr. West is a board certified physician through the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She has been a practicing OBGYN physician in a private practice since 1996, although since January 2008 she has focused her interests to Gynecology and Medical Aethetics.
Early in her medical career she had an interest in plastic surgery and dermatology, though OBGYN won out as the specialty training she pursued. However, since deciding to “retire” from the obstetrical portion of her practice she has had more time to pursue her other long standing interests.
For years she has been caring for patients who have sought advice on skin health. Seeing patients in their teen years with acne, to skin issues during pregnancy, to adult acne and the relation to hormonal changes throughout life and into menopausal years, she realized how beneficial it would be to bridge the continuum of health care from Internal health and wellness to Internal Beauty. She has received advanced training and certification in Laser aesthetic procedures as well as advanced training for injections such as Botox, Dyspot, Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma and the newest body contouring treatment CoolScuplting! She personally performs and oversees these services.
