Vicky Armstrong is an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ANP) with over 13 years’ experience as a Family Nurse Practitioner. After completing her ANP from the University of South Alabama, she obtained Nurse Practitioner certification through American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (now American Association of Nurse Practitioners) in 2004.

Vicky developed her personal interest in Integrative Medicine when she researched and successfully treated her aging dogs with non-pharmaceutical remedies. She continues her pursuit of cutting edge knowledge and is currently a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), working towards certification. IFM’s philosophy includes determining root cause of symptoms while promoting health and wellness from the patient’s immune system and other natural sources.

Vicky joins Atlanta Integrative and Internal Medicine with a wealth of clinical experience. Her previous practice experience includes Cardiology (5+ years), Family Practice/Internal Medicine/Emergency Room (3+ years) and Hospital Medicine (4+ years). She is equipped to help our patients with everything from acute to chronic illness. Her current interests are in balancing adrenal fatigue and thyroid function as well as bioidentical hormone replacement therapies for both men and women. Vicky’s passion is to empower her patients with knowledge and information so they can achieve optimal health and well-being.

When not studying or working, Vicky enjoys the out of doors; bicycling, hiking, and running.

NOTE: Forever Health provides a directory where people like you can connect with BHRT and other physicians and innovative health practitioners. We do not provide medical advice or services directly. While BHRT and prevention are important to the physicians and health practitioners listed, each has his or her own approach to practicing medicine. So when scheduling your appointment, be sure to clarify the reason for your visit, as well as your goals for seeking out such treatment.

NOTE on Insurance: Innovative practitioners and insurance companies have long debated the importance of preventive medicine and services such as BHRT. Due to variations in coverage for novel treatment options, many practitioners will resolve this issue by providing their services on a cash-only basis. Forever Health encourages you to contact the practitioner to determine if any alternative payment options or post-visit reimbursements exist.

DISCLAIMER: Inclusion in this directory is free to practitioners and does not constitute endorsement by Forever Health. All health practitioners who appear on this list do so on the sole basis of their own expression of interest in the fields of BHRT or other integrative medicine. Forever Health does not verify the competence, professional credentials, business practices or validity of the expressed interests of these health practitioners. Forever Health makes no recommendation of any health practitioner on this list and makes no suggestion that any such health practitioner will cure, treat, or prevent any disease or condition.
