Welcome to Ryan Family Medicine

Welcome to Ryan Family Medicine

Dr. Jeff Ryan started Ryan Family Medicine in the summer of 2009. He was joined by Physician Assistant (“P.A.”) Denise Gangi-Pollacek in the summer of 2011.

The inspiration for the practice was the work of Gordon Moore, MD, and the concept of the “Ideal Medical Practice”. Those ideas still inform our effort to remain an independent family practice providing personalized primary care. We are committed to using old-fashioned listening skills, maintaining knowledge of the most up-to-date diagnosis and treatment, and employing the best in high tech medical systems.

The work of Andrew Weil, MD, and Dr. Ryan’s fellowship in Integrative Medicine at University of Arizona is reflected in what we do at RFM. Good medicine occurs on the continuum from the conventional to the complementary. We often incorporate some of each depending on your needs, the situation, and the evidence.

We are committed to wellness, prevention of disease, and slowing or reversing chronic disease with the use of our lifestyle medicine programs. Lifestyle medicine is comprised of nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction. While these ideas permeate all of the care we provide, we also offer a dedicated lifestyle medicine program, called FirstLine Therapy.

Our pledge: to be a friendly, efficient and sustainable family practice where you’ll have access to knowledgeable and compassionate medical care to keep yourself healthy, and to assist you when you aren’t.
