Dr. Kelly Lenz
Dr. Kelly Lenz is a practicing physician licensed by the State of California. She received her medical degree from The University of Virginia School of Medicine in 1991, and completed her residency in Anesthesiology at the University of California Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA. Over the course of a 20-plus year career in Anesthesiology, she noticed that she was seeing more and more younger and younger patients with chronic diseases, on ever growing lists of medications. She noted that many of her patients seemed much older than their chronological ages, and that others seemed 10 to even 20 years younger. It seemed to her that there must be a better way to prevent and treat chronic diseases and to age with health, vigor and vitality than the current “conventional medicine” system which tends to focus more on symptom management. In pursuit of these goals, in 2009 she began studying Anti-Aging, Functional and Regenerative Medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, graduating from their Advanced Fellowship in December 2015. She has also completed a yearlong training course in Functional Medicine (Advanced Diagnostics And Personalized Therapeutics) through the Kresser Institute, and in May of 2018 completed the Institute for Functional Medicine’s certification program. Her whole life she has always wanted to know why things are the way they are. The practice of Functional Medicine gets to the “whys” of problems and by addressing those root causes, patients can restore their health and vitality.
