About Nurse Practitioner Elise Clark, FNP-C
Elise Clark not only graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin, with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, but she also graduated with honors from Texas Woman’s University, with a Master of Science in Nursing. She is board certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
Elise’s early training included critical care, surgical care, and women’s health. It was during her time with an OB/GYN clinic in Austin that her interest in hormones began to pique. She saw firsthand that she could help people feel much better and safely elevate their lives with hormones. Elise went on to practice Family Medicine which helped her become very well-rounded. She still felt passionate about hormones and went on to work in Endocrinology for a few years. However, she realized that she was not able to help people like she wanted to in a traditional medicine environment. She wanted to focus on her patients more holistically incorporating nutrition, disease prevention, and education into her practice. This is how she found Dr. Leigh Ann Scott. We welcome her knowledge, compassion, and experience in helping our patients improve their quality of life.
Elise follows the same basic procedures as Dr. Scott for men and women, formulating the right protocol for hormone balance, nutrition, supplement support, and weight management. Her endocrinology background has also afforded her experience and knowledge in treating thyroid disorders. She works closely with her patients, gains a full understanding of what they have been experiencing, and, with the correct use of diagnostic tools and labs, works to find the underlying causes of symptoms and address these to achieve long-term wellness for each patient.
About Physician Assistant Kam Neal, PA-C
Physician Assistant Kam Neal has loved medicine her entire life. She grew up in Colorado, and as a child, she remembers being fascinated with investigating how things worked.
Kam attended Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma, where she received a bachelor of science in biology—following that, she earned a master’s degree in health services from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center upon completing the physician associate program. She is a certified Physician Assistant and licensed by the Texas Medical Board.
Throughout her career as a physician assistant, Kam has enjoyed working in several different specialties within the medical field. She has worked in family medicine, cardiology, urgent care, and as a clinical assistant professor, where she learned she loved to teach.
In the traditional medical model, Kam felt frustrated working in a high-volume practice with barely enough time to refill medications and not seeing her patients feel any better over time. In addition, her own experience with hormone imbalances after having children and being told ‘everything is normal’ fueled those feelings more, leading her to functional medicine and an optimal wellness model of medicine.
Kam’s desire to treat the whole patient and not just the symptoms, along with her passion for teaching, is evident as she loves working with each patient to find the root cause of their illness while teaching them about their health, so they feel informed and empowered.
