“Sagewood Institute brings together experts that traditionally treated patients in separate practices. By assembling them in one location, we can help people in a more integrative way. Our goal is to empower, educate, restore and achieve optimum health, beauty and wellness.”
– Joaquin Hernandez, IMD
Speaking from experience, Joaquin Hernandez, IMD, knows first-hand how easy it is to fall into a lifestyle of stress and unhealthy eating. Born and raised in Cuba, Dr. Hernandez, grew up with healthy food and plenty of exercise. After being in the US for several years, he found himself overweight and having symptoms of high blood pressure, caught up with overworking and fast food — that’s when he decided it was time to focus on a healthier lifestyle.
Practicing medicine in Cuba without modernism of healthcare taught him the importance of functional medicine. Spending quality time with each patient to understand their needs was the most important step. Preventative practices and measures make for sage advice.
Dr. Hernandez, Sagewood Institute’s founder, is leading a movement focused on providing a true path to health and wellness through education and medical expertise. The organization’s mission is to empower, educate, restore and maintain optimum health, beauty and wellness. Recently opened, Sagewood is getting great reviews for giving each client personal attention and for recommending programs that will work best for them. The word sage means wise and giving sage advice whether on aging, skin care, diet, destressing, looking your best or relaxing with a yoga class, is the goal for Dr. Hernandez and his team.
