Founder and Nurse Practitioner
Diane Parks, NP has over 30 years experience in health care. She is the founder of The Well for Health and a practicing nurse practitioner. Throughout her career she has been a strong patient advocate and continually undergoes advanced training to optimize health care for her patients. She is determined to offer the most cutting edged, yet well researched treatment modalities to prevent illness, optimize wellness by reversing or reducing chronic illness, and fight the aging process! She has completed her studies at the prestigious Institute of Functional Medicine and is now a certified functional medicine practitioner. This organization is responsible for bringing to the Cleveland Clinic a new functional medicine division recognizing the tremendous importance of this new way of thinking about health care. Most recently Diane has completed additional training to recognize and treat the very debilitating symptoms due to exposure to biotoxins, predominately mold and is now been recognized by Dr. Dale Bredesen to enroll patients experiencing memory decline into his protocol on "reversing or preventing cognitive impairment."
Diane is a strong advocate for women's health and has a sexual health expertise allowing her to treat a variety of sexual dysfunction, both physiological and psychological so prevalent in men and women. Most recently she obtained the MonaLisa Touch fractioned CO2 laser for the treatment of genitourinary symptoms of estrogen decline. This treatment has been a game changer for a woman's sexual function so often compromised by hormonal decline due to menopause, treatment of breast cancer or early hysterectomy. It is also a wonderful adjuvant treatment for lichen sclerosus.

Dylan is a 5 year old English Golden Retriever who has been a frequent visitor at the The Well for Health. He mostly roams the office looking for anyone who will "talk" to him or provide a treat or loving gesture, yet is also ready and able to return the kindness shown to him. He is patient, loving, playful and loves to provide affection and comfort to those who are having a tough time. Not only does he love being a therapy dog, but also loves peanut butter kongs, beach combing, tennis balls, other dogs and is especially fond of his owners, Diane and Boyd Parks.
