Dr. Ortiz first brought her passion for naturopathic medicine to patients in the Palm Springs area when she co-founded Live Well Clinic, a naturopathic family practice, in 2008. As advancements in regenerative cell therapies have emerged and the demand for natural healing methods has grown, Dr. Nicole Marie transitioned to opening her dream clinic focusing on innovative regenerative therapies.
She has been practicing naturopathic medicine for 9 years, and has taken an innovative approach to the rejuvenation of skin, hair, joints and ligaments through regenerative therapies. She bases her practices in utilizing the body’s own healing elements: growth factors and stem cells, which recruit healing and youthfulness to her patients. She is one of the nation’s leading physicians in the application of regenerative cells in combination with nutrient therapy for healing.
