Tiffany Richey is a Family Nurse Practitioner, board-certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, and licensed by the Oklahoma State Board of Nursing to provide exceptional healthcare to patients across the lifespan. Her scope of practice encompasses health promotion, disease prevention, diagnosis and management of common and complex health care problems. She graduated in 2013 with a BSN from Oklahoma Christian University and acquired a MSN from South University of Georgia with a specialty in Family practice in 2016. She is currently working on completing a fellowship of Functional Medicine through the American Academy of Anti aging Medicine. Her experience as a registered nurse has primarily been in the ICU and cardiac CCU where she earned a national certification in critical care (CCRN). It was here that she learned the devastating effects the environment and lifestyle choices can have on the human body. Frustrated by the healthcare climate today of treating patients in a health crisis versus prevention led her to seek other options to provide care that would seek eliminating the cause of the problem. She found a solution in the Functional healthcare approach. Functional practitioners examine each patient’s lifestyle and unique biochemical factors to identify the underlying causes of their disease and find treatments that help return patients to optimal health. This can only be done through a therapeutic relationship between patient and provider. She has over three years experience treating patients through functional medicine concepts.
