Jessica Wei MD is a certified functional medicine practitioner board-certified in Integrative Medicine. She currently practices holistic medicine virtually at Parsley Health. She was initially board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology during her long medical career. She had the great privilege and honor to care for thousands of women for seventeen years during their pregnancies and every phase of life from ages 10 to 95. Her conventional medical training began at the University of Virginia School of Medicine after completing her undergraduate and graduate studies at UVa. She completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology with the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. She established a very successful private Ob/Gyn practice in Connecticut, which she left in May 2016.
Over the years, as she listened carefully to thousands of women’s stories of their lives and bodies, she realized the many limitations of conventional medical practice. She often felt she did not have the proper tools to help women discover their true health and sense of well-being. And as she devoted her life to helping other women, she began to lose her health and vitality and almost let her own life completely slip away.
In search of better ways to help women regain health and balance, she completed a fellowship in Integrative Medicine with the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and then certification in Functional Medicine with the Institute for Functional Medicine. After she left her conventional medical practice in 2016, she established a women's functional medicine practice. In 2019, she wrote Physician, Care for Thyself, as a guide to help others navigate their journey from burnout to back to a life of happiness and joy. She now works with people virtually as a functional medicine at Parsley Health.
She lives in Florence and loves walking barefoot outside, dancing ecstatically, immersing herself in nature, and finding freedom in each present moment. As she follows her bliss more deeply, she knows that more beauty, joy, and love will continue to manifest.
