About Deepti Reddy MD MPH
My passion for generating bio-psycho-socio-spiritual health in myself and the people I meet is what gives my days purpose. It is a physician’s responsibility to help their clients achieve optimal function through their biology, psychology, social connections, and spirituality. My goal is to follow all of these parts of you and to help you decide what you need to do to nourish yourself back to wholeness as quickly as possible. I will not have all the answers; neither will you. We will find them together.
A graduate of Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, I completed 18 months of family medicine residency training at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor before changing paths and completing my residency training in preventive medicine, also at the University of Michigan. I also work part-time in an urgent care clinic in Dundee, Michigan. The diversity of my training and work experiences allows me to care for you so you can care for yourself and those around you in healing and helpful ways.
I look forward to meeting you soon.

About Dr. Sickels
Dr. Sickels looks at problems from more than one perspective
I entered medical school later in life than most medical students. I had spent time after college out in the real world: working with kids, working in a bookstore, managing a natural foods department. While working in natural foods, I heard many people say they were dissatisfied with their doctors, but I realized that the problem more often than not was miscommunication. I had been contemplating going to medical school, and this realization helped that decision gel. I resolved that rather than complain from the outside, I would become a doctor and see if there was a different way to practice that would allow me to spend the time I needed to communicate with patients and find the best way to keep them healthy. In order to keep people healthy, I knew they would need more than just medications, more than what is taught in medical school. Health is not just the absence of disease, but maximizing and retaining the function we have.
A graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School, I completed my residency in Family Medicine at Flower Hospital in Sylvania, Ohio. I have been board certified in Family Medicine, Integrative Medicine, and Holistic Medicine, as well as certified in chelation therapy, and have trained in bioidentical hormone replacement.
