Patty Stark M Ed, FMCHC, Wellness Coach
For most of my life, I tried to find doctors who would be partners on my health journey and work with me to decide on the best response to my concerns. Doctors’ busy schedules rendered my efforts fruitless — until I met Tiffany Mullen. From the first visit, Dr. Mullen listened as I described my struggle with insomnia. Instead of suggesting over the counter remedies, she helped me realize as we talked that I was on a stress trajectory that might send me to the hospital if I didn’t make some lifestyle
After my eyes were opened to the possibilities of doctor-patient dialogue and answers that went beyond a pill for an ill, I decided to continue this holistic mindset with training to become a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach.
As a coach, I am passionate about collaborating with clients to achieve their personal wellness goals. For one client, it might be dealing with a sense of exhaustion as a new mother. For another client, it might be making small dietary changes to reduce blood sugar. I will provide guidance that is both safe and empowering, reflections that are non- judgmental and insightful, and a perspective that is grounded in professional training. Wherever you are on your health journey, I look forward to supporting you.

- Obsessively dedicated support: responsive, compassionate clinicians and support staff are at your service.
Why hasn’t my doctor mentioned this kind of option for me?
Many people (including many healthcare providers) are unaware of the role different hormones and nutrients play in human health, or how seriously an imbalance can impact long-term health. Interestingly, optimal health is never discussed in medical and pharmacy school training! This leaves most clinicians woefully unprepared to help patients achieve personalized, optimal health and well-being.
If you’ve ever tried to discuss your fatigue, or your mood changes or your difficulty sleeping with your doctor and walked out with a stack of prescriptions you are not alone. There is simply not enough time in a traditional medical visit to be meaningfully helpful. We find this approach as frustrating as you do--so we set out to fix it. At WellnessScript, you will never experience “drive-through medicine”. Ever.
Aren’t hormonal changes normal?
They sure are. However, at a certain point in life (for some in their early 30's) hormonal changes can create symptoms that impact your quality of life. Many people think that they have to tolerate these symptoms--weight gain, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, low sex drive--as a fact of getting older. We don’t buy that.
In fact, research suggests that in order to maintain good physical and mental health, we should not accept it! Maintaining optimal balance and levels of hormones promotes and improves quality of life and prevents (and even reverses) many of the degenerative illnesses commonly associated with aging.
Do you prescribe bioidentical hormones?
Yes. Our certified compounding pharmacy produces high-quality bioidentical hormones, fully customized for you and shipped to your home.
Do you offer non-traditional medications for thyroid treatment?
We offer a complete functional medicine approach to thyroid treatment, including in-depth testing, prescribing of all thyroid medications (including Armour, NP-Thyroid, West-Throid and Nature-Throid as well as compounded thyroid medications). Our supplement packets can include specific nutrients for thyroid support and are customized for you based on actual blood levels (no guessing!).
What kind of lab testing do you offer?
We partner with labs that offer the highest clinical quality and have a long history of delivering results that can be trusted. Some examples of our lab partners include:
- Genova Diagnostics
- ZRT Laboratories
- Pathway Genomics
What types of supplements do you provide?
At WellnessScript, we only use physician-grade supplements in our daily packs. We partner with companies such as Orthomolecular, Metagenics, Pure Encapsulations, Integrative Therapeutics and Nordic Naturals because of their exceptional purity and quality standards. We only provide supplements we would take ourselves (and we’re picky!)
