Shilpa P. Saxena, MD, IFMCP, is a board-certified family physician whose passion and purpose come to life through an uncompromising commitment to promoting the “health” and “care” aspects of healthcare.

In addition to over 15 years of progressive patient care in her successful medical practice, Dr. Saxena is faculty with The Institute for Functional Medicine, faculty with the Academy of Integrative & Holistic Medicine, fellow & guest faculty of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, faculty with George Washington University’s Metabolic Medicine Institute and the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy.

But more importantly to her, she understands that the brightest of physicians or educators is of little value to the patient who cannot be empowered by that knowledge. As a consummate teacher, she is internationally known for her keep-it-simple approach to teaching both complex clinical and practice management issues. By marrying the science of modern medicine with the art of patient education and partnership, she created Group Visit Toolkits, a turnkey lifestyle based group medical appointment resource to help patients and physicians alike rediscover the splendor of health and healing over the drain of disease and drugs. As a pioneer in the group visit model, she has helped many providers and coaches bring clinical, operational, financial, and social health benefits back to their patients and practices while simultaneously fueling the healer’s own purpose and fulfillment in the field of medicine.
