Meet the Founder of Compass Cellular Healing

ABOUT

THE PHYSICIAN

Dr. Lee Howard, MD, FACS

Dr. Howard founded Compass Cellular Healing, a Nashville alternative medicine clinic, to provide patients the tools needed to achieve optimal health and longevity.

Dr. Howard is a board certified general surgeon, a cosmetic surgeon, and a functional medicine practitioner. He encountered the effects of chronic disease and the shortfalls of modern medicine too frequently. He found that patients are not provided the proper tools and information to get well and stay well. Spurred on by his own desire to achieve health and wellness, he has dedicated his career to helping his patients achieve their unique health goals. At our Nashville alternative medicine clinic, we take a practical approach to health and provide our clients with proper education. We incorporate ways to improve their quality of life by treating the person as a whole and not simply putting a bandaid (a pill) on the symptom.
