About Jeannine L. Parikh, M.D.
It is an honor to introduce myself to you. I grew up in Becket, Massachusetts, a small town in the Berkshires. I have been blessed to have wonderful parents who have given me the support and strength to follow my dreams and taught me strong family values.
Being a doctor is a desire that I’ve had since I was 12 years old. I graduated from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 1997 and completed my medical student rotations in Brooklyn New York and my residency training in at St, Joseph’s Medical Center in Yonkers, NY in 2001. My passion to provide comprehensive healthcare and to use wellness to keep away illness led me to choose family practice as my discipline. Board certified in Family medicine in 2013, Obesity Medicine in 2016 and Functional Medicine in 2020.
I met my husband in medical school and have been happily married since 1996. We moved to Ashland, Kentucky with our two boys in 2005. I enjoy the small town atmosphere and strong sense of community this area has to offer. I have had the privilege of working for almost 10 years in the Kings Daughters outreach clinic in South point Ohio.
It has long been a desire of mine to provide a whole body approach, to not just treat illness but to promote overall health, happiness and well-being. Throughout my career I saw the negative effects that obesity has on the body, mind and spirit. I myself have struggled with obesity my entire life. I also saw the toll that addiction has in our community, many times afflicting young people just as they are getting into the prime of their life. Throughout my career I have seen the negative effects that obesity has on the body, mind and spirit, I also see the toll that poor nutrition and stress has on our community and the need for education and guidance to promote healthy aging.
I along with my husband opened our practice, Ashland integrative medicine in 2014 to provide a private, comfortable, family-friendly environment where patients can feel free to address the sensitive issues and help us guide them towards a healthier, more productive life.
It is my honor and a privilege to serve all your healthcare needs.
