With my many years of emergency medicine experience, I saw all too often the devastating effects of a “wait and see” approach when it comes to health.
While we were able to save many lives, I came to realize that what I saw in the emergency room could have easily been avoided with the right education, lifestyle changes, and having the right kind of coaching.
This is what prompted me to seek out additional education in a type of lifestyle or Integrative Medicine, also called Functional Medicine. Functional medicine focuses on healing and balancing the whole person and is a patient-centered approach.
When it comes to dealing with chronic symptoms, Functional Medicine seeks to deal with the underlying causes instead of relying on medications that only mask your symptoms. When I first learned about Functional Medicine, I saw the huge potential of this kind of medicine and the difference it could make in people’s lives!
That’s why I bring the best of both worlds to my patients so they can benefit from my 30+ years of knowledge in the medical field.
It is my deepest aspiration to use all my knowledge, along with my nurturing and empathy to inspire patients. Changing the course of someone’s health destiny takes more than your standard 7-minute office visit and this is why my patient mentoring program is so impactful and transformational. This allows me to make my years of knowledge easily accessible and practical so that anyone can learn how to lead a happy, healthy, and peaceful life full of vitality.
To that end, I work directly with you to motivate, encourage and empower you with tools to balance your mind and body. Prevention is indeed the best medicine and we can work together to achieve the best version of YOU.
Yours in good health,
Dr Defne ™
Let me help you change the course of your health destiny… It’s all about empowering you and giving you the right tools, so you can create & maintain your own health and enjoy true well-being.
“My aches are gone!....my eczema…gone!….I look and feel younger...I learned so much about my body…many thanks to DrDefne ….”
“I got into the program thinking this is just a diet plan. I now realize it is exceedingly more than that. Prior to starting the program, I had healthy food choices/habits and I just wanted to tackle some pounds I gained over the last few years. I tried dieting here and there but the hunger and irritability did not work for me. I experienced none of these on Dr.Defne’s program. On the contrary, I was energized! With the program, I not only learned how I can reset my mind-body, but also how I can maintain my weight in the long run by upgrading my lifestyle. I had neck and back pains for years due to herniation and sought out help at a bunch of rehab centers…. and I got no relief….Weeks into the program, my aches are GONE! Eczema around my lips and in my scalp… GONE! Both my skin and my gut feel renewed. I lost about 20 pounds but I look like I lost a lot MORE! I look and feel younger, my energy increased to a point where I feel decades younger. A huge bonus of the program is that detox is naturally integrated! I am so happy I did not just sign up for any diet program. This is a wholesome and comprehensive program, I learned so much about my body, my physiology, my sleep, and more. Many thanks to Dr. Defne who provided highly valuable educational information on a weekly basis, monitored my progress closely and was available to answer all my questions via texts and scheduled video calls. I recommend this program to anyone who not only wants to lose weight in a restorative way, but also look younger and feel energized!”

“Rewriting tomorrow on how we look and how we feel….”
“I just had the honor/pleasure to listening to Dr. Defne’s speech. She is an EM physician and she dealt with the most intense situations where she was able to calm everybody down, get the job down and make sure that everybody was in a good state. She has transitioned into antiaging medicine because we want to “rewrite tomorrow”. As we want to rewrite what is going on in our lives not only currently but also 10-20 years in how we look and how we feel…she is the one you want to see…. if you like youth to be on your side you ought to get checked out by Dr. Defne and make sure you can rewrite tomorrow with mind, body and spirit all in the same place”
