Laura Mendez 

APRN,WHNP, IFMCP

Born and raised in the Panhandle of Texas, Ms. Mendez has many years of medical experience, having worked as an RN in the ER, ICU, L & D and in Psychiatry. She moved to Dallas in 1993 to complete the Nurse Practitioner program at the University of Texas Southwestern Campus. She then relocated from the Panhandle to the Houston area in 1995.

 

Nine years ago, she established Optimal Health of Houston- a practice that focuses on Gynecology and Functional Medicine for women, addressing the core issues in illness rather than treating only the symptoms.

She is proud of her reputation in the Houston community and takes new appointments primarily by patient referrals.

Mona Hawk 

CMOM

Mona was born and raised here in Houston. She was a talented athlete in high school and received a scholarship for college. She worked with the Harris County Sheriff’s office as well as the Houston Police Department until her children were old enough to be aware of the dangers of her job. She then found a daytime job as an office manager for a physician’s office. She has worked for several physicians and we were lucky enough to get her when her last employer retired. She helped get Optimal Health of Houston, PLLC up and running and wears many hats here at the office.

Our Mission at Optimal Health of Houston is to provide evaluation of your health status with cutting edge testing modalities and provide you with the education to understand how to improve or maintain your health, therefore empowering you to be the best that you can be and have a healthy quality of life.

"I have not felt well for several years. After several specialist who did not help. I saw Laura. I am now starting to feel like my old self! Thank you Laura, Ashley, and Mona!"
