Meet Michele Guilfoyle, Physician Assistant
Michele is an experienced PA with a background in nutrition – she was a registered dietician (RD) and worked with a broad spectrum of patients from those who were very sick in hospital ICUs to pregnant women and children through WIC programs… She left her former position in New Hampshire after developing an interest in integrative/functional medicine and a stronger belief in “Food as Medicine”, beyond what the mainstream medical model allows for in practice.
She incorporates integrative approaches, including nutritional and lifestyle counseling and mind-body medicine to complement conventional treatment. “After working in the medical field for 20 years, I believe this is the best way to treat the whole person and enhance patients’ physical, mental and emotional well-being. I strive to evaluate each patient’s unique situation and to offer compassionate care that takes into account each person’s overall health and well-being.” Her particular health interests include women’s health, hormones, nutrition, gut health, and preventative medicine.
Michele is a native of the Seacoast NH area. Fitness is important to her, and she regularly practices yoga, pilates, and likes to run – she has completed several half-marathons.
