Joi Sawyer is a board-certified nurse practitioner in Las Vegas. Her mission is to treat all patients the same as she would any family member while providing them with individualized care.
Sawyer is dedicated to the prevention and reduction of chronic disease within the community. Sawyer gained an interest in integrative medicine after working in the emergency department as a nurse practitioner for more than 10 years. Being in the emergency department, she gained first-hand knowledge of the long-term effects of chronic disease that eventually can lead to the
end of life. Sawyer decided to change her approach to medicine by transitioning to preventative in the form of integrative medicine. Her goal is to help decrease the incidence of morbidity and mortality in Las Vegas and hopefully beyond. She has a strong passion for all forms of anti-aging including aesthetics, cosmetic dermatology, and non-surgical treatments. Not only does she want to keep her patients healthy inside, but she also wants to help intensify their natural beauty on the outside.
