Meet the Gentle Giant
MSN, APRN, AGNP-C, CHC
My name is Lequawn James. I am a nurse practitioner that specializes in mental health and addiction medicine, orthopedics and sports medicine, anti-aging and hormone replacement. Although these practices are on different realms of the healthcare spectrum, I find both very rewarding in their own way. In both, I have the unique opportunity to give patients a second chance at life through mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional health rebuilding.
On the orthopedic side, I encounter many patients who have spent years in pain without results from various surgeries and use of painkillers. Through naturopathic and homeopathic treatments, I am given the opportunity to help patients relieve pain and increase their activity level and function without the use of countless narcotics and surgery.
My office is not just a place where I specialize in treating pain. I also treat patients’ abnormal hormones and the various symptoms that develop as a result of these abnormalities, through the use of the Biote method (pellet insertion), as well as injectable testosterone. Additionally, I use regenerative medicine to aide in joint, muscle, ligament, and tendon repairs; anti-aging, hair-restoration, as well as Botox and fillers. I am certified by the American Board of Nurse Practitioners, Biote certified to implement pellets for hormone replacement therapy and thyroid treatments and certified through Allergan to use Botox products of all kinds. Before I became a nurse practitioner, I spent nearly 8 years working in the emergency department and intensive care unit as a nurse where I saw and treated everything you can name. I attribute all of my skills of today, to the many years in the trenches as a nurse.

Before becoming a nurse, I played four years of College football where I was an All-Conference, All-American Football player. Now my hobbies include working out, coming up with macro-friendly meals for patients and friends to try, traveling, amusement parks, hiking, playing on a competitive flag football travel team, and cuddling my puppy husky Q.
