Functional Medicine Nurse Practitioner

Leah Geoghegan is a board-certified Nurse Practitioner whose passion for helping people achieve optimal wellness inspired the creation of Emergence Health.

Leah has over 6 years of combined experience in nursing, working at NYU Langone Health in the Transplant and Emergency Departments and in private practice with Primary Care and Functional Medicine.

While working in the ED, she witnessed first-hand the connection between poor lifestyle behaviors and adverse health outcomes. She became frustrated with the current healthcare system, which focuses on sick care instead of health care. From this experience, she decided to dedicate her career to proactively helping patients achieve optimal health.

Leah graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with her Bachelors of Science in Nursing and Global Health. She received her Master’s degree from New York University’s world-renowned Adult Primary and Holistic Care programs. Her functional medicine training is through the Institute for Functional Medicine. She is also certified as a medical marijuana prescriber in New York State.

Leah has a detailed approach to providing care by blending Western and Eastern medicine modalities based on patient preference, evidence-based data, and her clinical expertise. Leah prioritizes building a strong relationship with each of her patients rooted in trust, mutual respect, and understanding. She invests the time and effort needed to listen to her patient’s health care needs, work with them to develop a plan of care, and check-in with them as needed.
