I continue to learn and grow my knowledge on a daily basis and absolutely love helping my patients not only reach their weight loss goals but keep the weight off.

Amy Hiestand ARNP, BC

amy-hiestadSo nice to be introducing myself to you, now lets get working together to make a difference in your health! I was born and raised in Montana, I enjoy anything in the mountains and outdoors. I ski and snowshoe. I love to camp and hike. Flyfishing is my weakness and I find so much peace with nature. I love animals, I have 4 dogs, 2 are rescues and 3 horses, 1 is a rescue colt. I have honeybees and I have many fruit trees and love to garden. I have 2 amazing sons 17 and 16, both are talented, handsome and strong working. I am engaged (long term) until my children are out of high school to a wonderful man who enjoys my same passions and is a very hard working Emergency Room physician.

I have now spent 23 years in Emergency Medicine. I currently work in the Emergency Department at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. From 2006-2008 I also worked in a Family Practice office part time doing mostly women’s health. From 2008-2013 I had a passion for Women Health and Integrative Medicine and started a clinic with a ND and we provided great integrative health care for women, men and children. I have spent almost 8 years working with women and hormones, bio-identicals and weight management and thyroid disorders (a special passion of mine as I had thyroid cancer when I was 21). I also have worked with men and hormones and all other family members with an integrative approach. I utilize herbal supplements with homeopathies and hormones and diet to help people achieve their health goals and with their input we can be successful. I have focused on these areas because I believe feeling good is part of quality of life.
