Speck Health Philosophy

Dr. Speck treats the whole person and focuses on the longevity of the treatment. Her goal is not to simply treat the problem with medications or surgery, but to instead work with the patient to implement a healthy lifestyle and promote overall health. Dr. Speck identifies risks and when medically appropriate uses the known benefits of exercise and nutrition to help manage cardiovascular risks. She helps patients navigate the medical system to ensure the best and prompt care. Many of her patients have a worrisome cardiovascular family history and want to act preemptively versus reactively.  Dr. Speck is dedicated to working with the patient to aid them to be champions of their own health. Every step of the way, she will listen to you, she will gather information, and make a plan that works for you as you move forward together.

Our Lifestyle Medicine Philosophy

Speck Health is a concierge lifestyle medicine clinic  that combines exercise and nutrition with internal medicine, preventive cardiology, and naturopathic medicine.  Together, our exercise, nutrition and medical staffs identify strategies that will enable you to experience a longer, healthier, and more fulfilling life. Unlike other medical clinics, fitness clubs, books, and the internet that provide only a piece of the puzzle, Speck Health is the only place where you can obtain a comprehensive, scientifically measured, personally designed and monitored action plan and a team of professionals who will work with you until you succeed.

Speck Health operates an in-office human performance lab called POTENTRX through which it conducts health and risk screening tests that are not covered by insurance.  The presence of POTENTRX enables you to receive rapid turn-around of results and to pay a reduced retail fee for important preventive and rehabilitative analyses that insurance plans do not cover.
