See Jennifer Simmons, MD, discuss cancer prevention and lowering the risk of breast cancer.


Jennifer Simmons, MD, founder of Real Health MD, was named one of the best integrative and functional medicine doctors in 2019.

For years I suffered with restless leg syndrome. I woke every night from the pain in my leg. Working with Dr. Simmons, she put me on a program and within days I was sleeping through the night for the first time in years. I am so grateful to her.

I struggled with injuries and pain for years playing competitive tennis. I would take Advil before and after every match to manage the pain. Since working with Dr. Simmons over the last 6 months and following her recommendations for nutrition and supplements, I have not had any injuries and I am not in pain. I am not taking any more Advil. I also have more energy and I have never felt better! I am so appreciative of Dr. Simmons’s integrative approach to treatment and to her dedication to getting results for her patients.

Do you think you can help my child lose weight and gain her health back along with her youthful energy? This is the question I asked Dr. Simmons when we met. In just 3 weeks, I already have my answer. Yes!!!!! With the guidance and passion for wanting to help people, Dr. Simmons and Ali Roberts have helped us learn and implement new eating habits. We discuss weekly which foods to eliminate and how to make better choices. Her energy levels are increasing, confidence is being restored and she has lost 5 pounds!!!! We are truly grateful for their dedication, passion and appreciate their efforts!!!!!!

I referred my 80 year old mother to Dr. Jenn Simmons. My mom had been struggling with her weight, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and daily leg pain for years. Through Dr. Simmons’s comprehensive, functional medicine approach that included helping my mom change her diet to a whole-foods plan and had her eliminate many foods that caused inflammation, starting her on a daily supplements regimen, and encouraging positive lifestyle changes, my mom had drastic changes in ONLY one month!! My mom’s cholesterol decreased 60 points, her blood pressure went down significantly, and she lost 10 pounds! It was truly unbelievable how quickly she got my mom results! Dr. Simmons was able to get her off her statin medication for her cholesterol that she’d been taking for 20 years.

Dr. Pamela — Philadelphia, PA

I heard Jen speak at a JAFCO event and was intrigued by the fact that she was formerly an esteemed breast surgeon who had made a transition to functional medicine. I had been stuck in a rut of weight gain for the last 6 months. I turned 40, had an injury (so couldn’t work out) and felt tired, bloated and yucky overall. Her program started with a 1 week smoothie/meal combo cleanse that left me feeling great. It was hard, but so worth it. And, it kicked my metabolism back into gear. In 1 month I lost 8 lbs. The subsequent elimination diet actually made me less hungry than I ever was before, and my body stopped craving all of the bad processed foods I had previously craved. I have more energy and my injury is feeling better. I am hoping this continues as a new way of life for me.
