Who is Dr. LaReesa?

Women’s Hormone Expert, Wellness & Epigenetics Coach, Consultant, Future Female Advocate, Mentor, and Author

Dr. LaReesa Ferdinand is a women’s hormone expert, integrative health coach and consultant with nearly two-decades of experience in women’s health as a board-certified OB/GYN physician. Nothing gives me greater joy than having the privilege of being on this incredible journey with other women.

There are core values that are fundamental to me personally and to my practice as a women’s health physician. These values are in all that I am and all that I do. I believe in:

Happiness – a state of joy and delight

Benevolence – the desire to do charitable good for others

Faith – a confidence and trust in God and my purpose

Passion – a strong enthusiasm and positive energy for women’s health and wellness

Integrity – a soundness of moral character and honesty

Authentic – a desire to be real, genuine and true to myself and others

Gratitude – the quality of thankfulness

Health is more than symptoms, doctor’s appointments, and medicine. It is also lifestyle, longevity, and love. And health is wealth.

Why me?

I once heard someone say that when you think about your life passion and about gravitating toward your destiny, it’s helpful to start with what frustrates you. Ask yourself – What gets under your skin? What drives your inner spirit?

As an OB/GYN, I have an impactful job that I love because there is nothing I love more than working with, and helping, women.

I have shared incredibly private moments with my patients, where they bare their hearts and souls and secrets that often aren’t shared with spouses, or other loved ones. Even after the clinical visit ends, I have lingering thoughts about how I can go beyond the office visit to continue the dialogue – a dialogue that will impact countless women and the quality of their lives.

In medical training you “see one, do one, teach one.”  Oftentimes, however, it is only the “see one, treat one,” with little time left to “teach (and transform) one.” This is what we need more of today – teaching, inspiring, empowering – so that others can make their own transformations.

I saw how we are different, but have many common threads. I saw how lives are impacted and changed, and I wanted to be on the other end of creating more powerful and productive beautiful lives beyond their perfect imperfections or their diagnoses. Mainstream medicine simply does not incorporate this philosophy.

We often see the destination and know how we want to feel, but lack the tools or resources to get there in the traditional health care model, leaving women with their own devices, unsure where to begin.

What do I want to do most?

Help women redefine health and wellness as a connection of the mind and body by focusing on restored hormone optimization solutions that meet the needs of her everyday lifestyle through perimenopause and beyond.

Globally impact and create a movement for women to become more powerful in their everyday actions by building improved lifestyle tools for health and wellness with more precision and targeted solutions.

Create a sustainable health and wellness journey that they love and deserve that is impossible to achieve all within the walls of a typical medical provider visit.

When I came to my appointment with Dr. Ferdinand, I was at my wits end. I’d experienced severe pelvic pain for a year and a half. More than one doctor said I should have a hysterectomy.
