We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Nancy Gaines-Dillard and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Gaines-Dillard, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?

After working for the past 25 years in tertiary and acute care facilities (family medicine, emergency medicine and trauma), I felt I could do it better. Give my patient population the time and dedication that they deserve without being on a time limit of having to see (so many clients per hour) almost like an assembly line so to speak.  I don’t mean this in a bad way, but it is the reality of the industry.  Healthcare shortage and high demand for healthcare.

I deliver personalized patient-centered, customized wellness plans of care. It is not one size fits all or cookie cutter healthcare.

My practice style is very patient specific. Together with a (collaborative, specific protocol approach) is geared for the client to achieve the maximal results in order to live their best life now!

What should our readers know about your business?

1) Dr. Nancy’s Integrative Medicine is one of my many passions. (www.drnancysintegrativemedicine.com)

Telemedicine
Health Screening
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy/Anti-Aging
Wellness plans based on Micronutrient testing (I treat deficiencies based on a patient’s results). This is very cutting edge

Weight loss

IV vitamin drip

Regenerative Cell Therapies to include sexual dysfunction, hair restoration, Stem Cell therapy

Who says you can’t have more than one.

2) Dr. Nancy Knows (www.drnancyknows.com) a talk show that was born out of the COVID pandemic. A talk show that provides inspiration/motivation and hope to many communities across the country bridging the gap of disparity uniting our nation. The talk show brings guests who are experts in their field of industry along with an occasional celebrity to talk about what they are doing that is impacting their community.

3) Dr. Nancy’s Medical Training Academy (www.drnancysmta.org)
CPR is very near and dear to me. I feel everyone needs to be equipped with this life saving skill set that is priceless. No longer will a person have to wait for a first responder to arrive when you have the skill set to start CPR. Everyday people can benefit from this skill.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

I love this city and all the things that a person can do and share here!

I’d like to start out at a breakfast spot….It’s hard to narrow it down so I’ll name a few: Snooze, Sugar Jam, Hash kitchen. For dinner: Eddie V’s, True Foods kitchen, Local Bistro or Pure Sushi whichever’s your taste.

The aquarium is a great place to start, or downtown art district. I love hanging out at the Sanctuary or Phoenician and not let us  forget about Sedona.

Night life…There is plenty, whether it is old town Scottsdale, or old town gilbert, downtown chandler or Tempe at the improv. There are endless possibilities.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to give thanks first and foremost to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, my mother, aunties, guidance counselors and all individuals that have greeted me with openness along my journey. The road less traveled can be lonely at times but your journey is yours alone. Staying true to yourself and keeping one foot in front of the other, not letting fear paralyze you is essential to your success. Never give up on yourself nor stop believing in yourself. That which you seek, seeks you back. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable, it’s during these times you discover gifts you never knew you had.
