Jennifer Negrin, M.D. is a board-certified physician at Orlando Vitality and a member of the BodyLogicMD network. She began her career practicing Family Medicine, motivated by her own personal struggles with illness as a child. In fact, if you ask her why she became a doctor, she will tell you that her career choice was all about giving back to the profession that saved her life.
However, after eight years of practice, Dr. Negrin became disenchanted with the focus on disease and the “pill for every ill” mentality plaguing the traditional model of medicine. She longed to step outside the limitations of Big Pharma and the influence of insurance companies to truly help her patients discover real solutions to their health concerns, not just slap a proverbial band-aid on their symptoms. It was her own battle with a thyroid disorder that led her to functional medicine, where she not only found relief but also a new path for her career.
Dr. Negrin joined Orlando Vitality in 2014 and has never looked back. With functional medicine in her arsenal, Dr. Negrin changes the lives of her patients each day by addressing the root cause of their health concerns and educating them on the benefits of making healthy lifestyle changes.
Upon joining the BodyLogicMD network of physicians, Dr. Negrin attended extensive training that went well beyond her years of medical school and board certifications. She achieved more than 200 hours of education and certification with the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, discovering the vital impact lifestyle changes could make in preventing and reversing disease. “I came to realize that 80 percent of illness can be attributed to lifestyle and that the body has an innate ability to heal itself,” she recalls. “That’s a realization I want to give to all my patients.”
And she has made that her mission at Orlando Vitality. Dr. Negrin says her favorite thing about being a functional medicine physician is the time she gets to spend with her patients – getting to know them, understanding their needs and helping them find healthcare solutions that fit their lifestyle. Using cutting-edge diagnostic testing, advanced therapies, like bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and basic treatments, such as nutritional counseling and detoxification programs, Dr. Negrin partners with her patients to develop tailored treatment plans that target the whole body to optimize total health and improve quality of life.
Dr. Negrin earned her medical degree at the University of Miami/Miller School of Medicine and completed Residencies at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital. She is Board Certified in Family Medicine and is an active member of the fellowship for Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine and the American Board of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine.
