TYLER SOUTHWELL, MD

Chief Medical Officer


WHAT I DO

Simply put, I help people live longer and more fulfilling lives. Unlike many other physicians today, I take a holistic and curious  approach to healthcare. Every human body and its systems are unique and I work tirelessly to find the best approaches for you as an individual. I am a reader and explorer and stay abreast of techniques, products, and treatments that are changing lives. From the child entering pre-school who needs standard immunizations to that 100-year-old CEO who wants to work another 10 years (and everyone in-between), each patient is my top priority. I also believe that every human, regardless of age, gender, socio-economic status, insurance plan, or county of origin deserves the best possible health care. We all deserve to live our best lives.

MY BACKGROUND

Medical Degree from Wayne State University in Detroit and Internship in Urology at the University of Toledo. Family Medicine Residency completed at the University of Michigan. Training in Surgery and Emergency Room Medicine. Extensive experience in Public Health.

MY PASSIONS

Family, reading, exercise, travel, and perusing medical studies.

NATASA OBRADOVIC

Medical Director


WHAT I DO

As Dr. Southwell’s right hand (and often left hand), I treat every patient I see with respect, care, and comfort. A breast cancer survivor myself, I have a unique perspective on healthcare and live that philosophy every day in my job. I have also been a caretaker to my mother during my childhood in Serbia. For me, Southwellness is not a job – it’s a personal passion and mission.

MY BACKGROUND

Doctor of Medicine from the Avalon School of Medicine and Affiliate of the American Board of Family Medicine and Oncology associations.

MY PASSIONS

Family and volunteer work. Sponsor for St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital and Child Fund International (10+ years). Member of non-profit Save Serbian Children.

LAUREN PREBLE, RN

WHAT I DO

I develop new medical programs and treatments in an effort to deliver compassionate, equitable, and reliable patient care. I'm a lover of the sciences and a solver of problems, and I bring new technological innovations and care protocols to the practice to move us forward in the future of medicine.

MY BACKGROUND

I have a BSN in Nursing from Arizona State University and BS in Evolutionary Biology from University of Arizona. I have 10+ years of experience developing and managing community outreach initiatives.

COLTON MOORE

Certified EMT and Phlebotomist

I also have 6+ years of customer experience and 2 years of work with hospice and palliative care.
