About PotentRx

POTENTRx was established in 2009 by top Seattle cardiologist, Sarah M. Speck, M.D., and nationally respected sport and exercise scientist, Dan G. Tripps, Ph.D. Together, they assembled an extraordinary team of preventive and rehabilitative health practitioners, supported by leading edge technologies and a personable and proficient administrative team.

POTENTRx is for people who are concerned about their health and vitality. POTENTRx addresses each client’s individual needs and goals through a personalized, medically and scientifically supervised action plan. Unlike other medical clinics, web-based solutions, or fitness clubs that provide one piece of the puzzle, the POTENTRx solution is a comprehensive, monitored path to better health and a longer more productive life.


The POTENTRx Approach

Our goal is to empower you to change your lifestyle and to help you live a vibrant life. At POTENTRx we help you embrace an action plan for personal change, help you set realistic goals for enacting that change efficiently and provide a medically guided dietary, exercise, and behavior modification program to assist you along the way.

POTENTRx offers comprehensive health and fitness assessments that address your goals, including disease prevention as well as the ability to live more vibrantly with chronic conditions. The assessments combine a series of tests that enable our staff to understand your current level of health and fitness to create an exercise and nutrition plan relative to your physiological capabilities. All assessments include pre- and post-assessment consultations with Dr. Speck or Dr. Tripps and staff, and a detailed report of findings and recommendations.

 

 

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.
