Our Clinic

Our Story

Connect Health was founded in 2011 by two Medical Doctors, Dr. Lawrence Cheng and Dr. Ashley Riskin. The inspiration for this clinic arose during their time working in conventional medicine as emergency physicians. They saw a dire need for a more proactive, preventative, route-cause, and systems-based approach to health and healing. Their quest for innovative solutions led them to pursue additional training at the University of Arizona. There they completed a Fellowship in Integrative Medicine and also attained certification as Functional Medicine Practitioners through the Institute of Functional Medicine. In the past decade they have become leading experts in longevity and healthspan strategies.

Today, the clinic focuses on two main pillars: Optimal Health & Longevity. Driven by our commitment to personalized, precision medicine, we utilize advanced techniques to detect diseases early, with a special emphasis on age related diseases including cancer, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and metabolic diseases. Cancer treatment and prevention. Our dynamic team is comprised of Medical Doctors, Naturopathic Doctors, Health Coaches, Mind- Body Practitioners, and Registered Nurses. We are dedicated to delivering comprehensive care that addresses the entirety of an individual’s well-being.

Connect Health empowers patients on their journeys to optimal health and extended lifespans.
