Dr. Linda Hillebrand, owner of Polished Rx Skin Couture Inc., specializes in helping women and men suffering from the symptoms of aging and other hormone imbalances achieve a longer, better life. Using customized wellness programs tailored to address each patient’s specific, personal needs, Dr. Hillebrand combines customized nutrition and fitness regimens, pharmaceutical-grade supplements, stress reduction techniques and natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to ensure her patients enjoy restored energy, improved mental clarity and the highest quality of life possible.
Dr. Hillebrand originally pursued a career in medicine, as an OB/GYN, with the hopes of truly helping others and giving back. She found the joy in practicing medicine was spending time with her patients, learning about their lives and how it impacted their health and helping them truly get to the root of the issue. Transitioning to functional medicine afforded her that opportunity. Today, she gets to spend up to an hour consulting with her patients and helping them live longer, healthier, higher quality lives.
Dr. Hillebrand is a walking testimonial of what you can achieve when good health is your goal. She has been a middle distance runner for much of her life, finding trail runs to bring her the greatest joy. However, trail running comes with its own dangers, so just three years ago, Dr. Hillebrand began sprinting and is, in April 2013, ranked as the fastest in the country in her age group.
Dr. Linda Hillebrand is a graduate of the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Pomona, California. She completed her internship at the San Bernardino County Medical Center in 1997 and her residency as an OB/GYN at Temple University Hospital in 2001. She also holds specialty certifications in IV Nutritional and Chelation Therapy. Dr. Hillebrand is an active fellow of the Fellowship of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine.
