Professional Care and Personalized Treatment
Jamey Hagan, MSN, NP-C
CEO of Platinum Wellness Center
Jamey is Board Certified in Family Practice by AANP and is licensed by the state of Tennessee to provide primary healthcare to people of all ages. He began his career in health care by working in the emergency department of a small community hospital in his hometown of Lawrenceburg, TN when he was only 17 years old. In addition to his vast clinical experience, he also had a rare opportunity to complete a fellowship in functional medicine with one of the world’s leading Functional Medicine Physicians. This is where he started to realize how broken our healthcare system was. In this realm of medicine, he realized that you can actually heal someone without throwing a pill at every little symptom. He learned how to fix the underlying cause of different disease processes that actually benefit the patients and not the pharmaceutical companies. He used his experience in functional medicine as a guide to setting up the structure of Platinum Wellness Center where they are “opening the door to the future of healthcare.”

Kevin is originally from Hutchison, Kansas. As an adult he relocated to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He started out in early adulthood as a carpenter/cabinet builder. He and his brother built a successful cabinetry business that provided services for several elite communities in Oklahoma. Having spent most of his life in Oklahoma, it was definitely a transition moving to Tennessee 7 years ago. He came to Tennessee with the idea of retiring until the good Lord allowed him to cross paths with Platinum Wellness Center. This is where he and his wife were 1st introduced to the idea of finding the “root” cause of disease which some may know as “functional medicine.” Kevin has seen first-hand the improvements in his wife’s health status, and he quickly became a believer in natural health. The good Lord has opened a whole new chapter to his life. He is very excited to be a part of something wonderful like Platinum Wellness Center. May God grant me the opportunity to help and love all who walk through Platinum Wellness Center’s doors, as we truly are “opening the door to the future of healthcare.”

Kay is originally from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Married to Kevin Alexander, they moved here roughly 7 years ago from Oklahoma. Kay hopes that her story will resonate with many others. She grew up in a culture of fast food and hard candies. Primarily, her choice of a meal would have been anything sweet. Unfortunately, this way of life led her down the road to diabetes. She also grew up on a farm in which she had many exposures to chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers. Having diabetes and other neurological symptoms this led to frequent doctors’ visits and frequent pharmaceuticals. None of which recognized the underlying causes. In other words, the doctors just wanted to manage her conditions. When she was first introduced to Platinum Wellness Center, she was confronted with discovering the root cause of her illnesses. From her first week of treatment she had quickly seen a difference neurologically. She is still actively receiving treatment and is now finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. It is nice to be part of a Christian organization that actually cares about people. She and her husband definitely feel that they are in the right place!
