Thank you for your interest in Essential Health by Karen Hanson NP

I have worked in healthcare for over 15 years. During that time I have often been frustrated by the overwhelming burden of providing medicine to treat disease and manage chronic health issues. This leaves very little time for the practitioner to provide true healthcare or disease prevention education. As a busy practitioner or as a consumer of healthcare you may feel the same frustration. That is why we have opened Essential Health. To fill in the gap.

The US is currently the most unwell nation in the developed world. According to a recent study looking at health in 17 developed nations, we are dead last. The current system is not working.

Existing in a state of being exhausted, depressed or unwell, is not fulfilling. At Essential Health, we are looking to change the status quo by providing a more boutique healthcare, tailored to your needs and designed to help you reach your goals of optimal health.  I have spent years refining a process that aims to keep you well instead of healing you when you are not. By performing tests, studying lab results and listening to patients we design a wellness plan with the goal of preventing illness and disease long before it starts. In those with existing health conditions we strive to restore health.
