About Lynese L. Lawson, DO

Dr. Lawson is the founder and medical director of Proactive Wellness Centers, PLC (PWC) of McLean, Virginia. Founded in 2006, PWC is one of the leading Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine specialty practices in the Metropolitan DC area serving patients from Northern Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC and many who travel 1000s of miles. The practice reflects her passion to bring an integrative approach to patient care that merges the latest in scientifically-validated treatment protocols with the best of conventional medical therapies.

Dr. Lawson specializes in treating men and women with bioidentical hormone replacement (BHRT), weight management, CIRS/Mold Toxcity, a functional approach to treating and preventing chronic disease, and therapies to reverse the symptoms of aging and enhance overall wellness and longevity. Dr. Lawson has been a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine since 2005 and completed a fellowship in Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine in 2007 leading to her Board Certification in Anti-Aging/Regenerative Medicine. The fellowship program emphasizes a thorough competency in the areas of nutrition, fitness, stress reduction, bioidentical hormone replacement and spirituality as a necessary basis for optimal health. Fellows obtain a rigorous understanding of the biochemistry and physiology of chronic disease.

Dr. Lawson is an avid researcher and her latest pursuit is to become an expert in diagnosing and treating Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS). CIRS is an emerging epidemic and over 80% of CIRS cases are the result of patients living or working in water-damaged buildings. She has already successfully treated several patients with CIRS by closely folllowing Dr. Shoemakers evidence-based protocols and she is currently nearing completion of a Certification program with the world reknowned author, researcher and educator, Ritchie Shoemaker, MD. He is largely responsible for much of the modern body of knowledge and evidence in diagnosing and treating CIRS.

The founding of Proactive Wellness Centers, PLC reflects Dr. Lawson's passion to create and implement a practice that focuses on patient individuality, a high level of doctor-patient interaction and comprehensive patient education. When combined with her passion for continuous research, this approach helps patients achieve the optimal health they deserve.

A word from Dr. Lawson

"I can truly say that I absolutely love what I do! Helping patients to achieve optimal health and being a part of their transformation is extremely gratifying for me. I love it when patients see results in 30 - 60 days; however, everyone is truly unique and not two patients respond exactly the same way. I feel so blessed to have worked with patients from more than 10 states and 5 countries and know that I am making a difference, one patient at a time. I truly care about educating patients and helping them achieve their health goals."
