Collaborating Physician & Medical Director
Dr. Green began his medical career in 1980 as chief of microbiology, immunology and virology in an 800 bed Midwestern hospital. He then completed medical school at the University of Iowa and followed with a residency in family practice. Family practice was chosen because it deals with the “whole individual.”
Dr. Green became disillusioned with corporate medicine and it’s emphasis on treating disease rather than promoting healthy lifestyles. A desire to find a better way to further education resulted in board certification in not only Family Practice but Integrative & Holistic Medicine, and Antiaging & Functional Medicine. He is also trained in medical acupuncture and is a Reiki Master. Dr. Green is a Lyme literate physician and a member of ILADS. He has helped many people suffering from Lyme disease regain an active, productive lifestyle. Dr. Green served in the United States Air Force for nine years and is proud to be a veteran.
Dr. Green is no longer seeing patients in clinic, however continues to serve as medical director and collaborating physician.

Certificate in Functional Medicine
Tiffany began her healthcare career as a nurse in 2013. She worked in the ICU and started to question why all of the patients were being treated the same way and more so, why they were not being taught lifestyle changes to avoid having to be readmitted. She decided to take her career to the next level with the hopes to change how patients were treated. She obtained her Master’s degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2019. After working as a Nurse Practitioner she quickly learned that her hands were tied with how patients were treated in traditional medicine and began studying Functional Medicine. She has a love of treating the entire person and recently finished her Shamanic Studies. In her spare time she loves to travel, be in nature, and spend time with her boyfriend.
Alyssa has a passion for functional medicine - as it is how she lives her life! Treating the body as a whole, honoring the mind, body, and soul to be able to function at an optimal level is so important to her. She is honored to partner with our patients on this journey and help restore health and well-being. Outside of work she is busy with two little boys and two big dogs! She enjoys spending time on the lake, and being with family!
