Noëlle Lee, DO
If there were a phrase to sum up Noelle’s approach to treating patients, it would be ‘self-empowerment.’ Her practice is one that has developed through years of study beginning with a bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies. Through these studies she decided that she wanted to help empower women through the childbirth process, and thus she enrolled in a midwifery program. 5 years later Noelle had completed this program, in addition to completing massage school and having three children!
Noelle’s experience with midwifery, while very fulfilling, made her realize that she wanted to continue taking care of the child and the family as they grew. So Noelle went back to school once more, this time for medical training at the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and she completed her Family Medicine Residency at Brown University. Noelle became a Board Certified Family Medicine Physician in order to merge all of her tools into one powerful family-based approach.
At Visions, Noelle is happy to find an environment in which she can be a Primary Care provider who takes a body-mind-spirit approach to treating her patients. Her goal is for her patients to recognize what their version of Health looks like and to develop an understanding of how to get there. This model is one she applies to her own life as she continually engages in activities to keep herself and her family healthy. Whether she’s fixing meals from her family’s organic garden, getting out into nature or selecting books to read as a family, Noelle’s personal motivation is to cultivate the same sort of health and well-being in her own life that she seeks to help her patients discover.
