Freedom Healthcare (FHC) was started in 2010 by Dr. Jeffrey S. Nelson. The Clinic was founded with the objective to provide a preventative and personal healthcare approach. Dr. Nelson’s passion to provide evidence-based medicine brought Freedom Healthcare into fruition. Prior to the emergence of FHC, Dr. Nelson practiced family medicine in Germany. While he was in Germany, his mom told him about the innovative treatment of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
Dr. Nelson later attended his first evidence-based medical education series on bioidentical hormones in 2008 by Dr. Neal Rouzier. At the conference, Dr. Nelson was shocked at the sheer volume of scientific evidence there was for bioidentical hormones. This information was not taught in medical school or residency. After the education series with Dr. Rouzier, Dr. Nelson changed his patients’ treatments from synthetics to bioidentical hormones and all of them felt better.
Dr. Nelson continued to study bioidentical hormones and became an expert in this area of medicine. Freedom Healthcare continued to grow as patients saw incredible results through functional medicine and bioidentical hormones. In addition, Dr. Nelson’s innovative approach to healthcare attracted other providers, who trained under him. Freedom Healthcare is now quickly expanding with locations in Layton, Ogden, and Sandy, Utah. However, FHC’s passion for evidence-based medicine remains the catalyst for the Clinics’ tenacity and success in the healthcare sphere.
