Dr. Jennifer Poindexter is a proud fifth generation Oregon, born and raised in the metro area. Dr.
Poindexter attended Portland State University for her undergraduate and shortly after, she returned to school to study massage therapy. Dr. Poindexter has been practicing massage therapy since 2006 and enjoys working with patients on their physical health goals. Through practicing massage therapy, Dr. Poindexter realized that the body is far more complex and she desired to expand her knowledge.
She attended National College of Natural Medicine (Currently known at NUNM) where she received her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. Poindexter spent two year in the beautiful Southern Oregon where she honed her skills as a Naturopath, however Portland was calling her home. She strongly believes in the Tenants of Naturopathic Medicine and loves to spend the extra time with patients, educating them on their health and the amazing properties the body has for healing. She focuses her practice on nutrition, physical and mental health. It is important to Dr. Poindexter that she individualized each treatment plan to improve patient’s health because all bodies are not the same and therefore do not heal the same way. She implements herbal and supplemental therapies, homeopathy, nutritional and physical medicine to improve health.
Currently Dr. Poindexter works as a Primary Care Provider and enjoys working with preventative
techniques to help optimize health outcome of her patients. Dr. Poindexter sees patients with a variety of health concerns such as chronic or acute health issues, routine wellness exams for men, women and children, sports physicals, blood pressure and cholesterol management, anxiety and depression, GI and metabolic disturbances, autoimmune and hormone issues and nutritional disturbances. Dr. Poindexter does offer bio-identical hormone support for men and women as well. She is able to order lab tests or imaging, and design a treatment plan around the health needs of the patient. Dr. Poindexter does offer prescription drug management with the caveat that she does not manage opioid/narcotic medications, chemotherapeutic drugs or psychiatric prescriptions for more complex psychiatric conditions. However, Dr. Poindexter is willing to work with other providers to help support each aspect of her patient’s health.
In her free time Dr. Poindexter enjoys spending time with her family, friends and dogs. She enjoys
traveling the world and exploring new cultures and customs.
