Meet Nicole

Nicole Ferrell, FNP

Nicole Ferrell is a family nurse practitioner. She holds certifications with IFM, BHRT, and Biote pellet therapy. She is also a member of NCNA, AANP, IFM, and the Obesity Medicine Association.  She was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. She met her husband and moved to the US in her 20s. Nicole attended nursing school in South Florida and later earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from West Virginia University. After being an emergency room nurse, she went on to receive a Master of Science in Nursing. Since then, Nicole spent several years in internal and hospital medicine. Along the way, she married and had 3 sons. Most, if not all, functional or integrative practitioners have a story as to how they became interested in the field. Nicole’s starts with her mother being diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease when she was 17, having serious injuries herself in her early 20s, and then her children having food allergies. All along she was oriented toward health even if she didn’t know it. Her family ate meals at home and was involved in ice skating, track, and field sports. Nicole has always been interested in endurance sports and what the body is capable of. She looks for new ways to improve health and body function, with a focus on matching health span with life span. Nicole studied with The Institute of Functional Medicine and completed their certification path. She enjoys finding the basis of what is causing patients to not feel their best and working with them to identify ways to improve and correct these underlying issues. She believes it takes two to make this journey, 1. A motivated patient and 2. An engaged clinician.


A doctor of integrative medicine is a physician who practices functional and holistic medicine. Doctors of integrative medicine believe in a whole person or systems approach to managing chronic ailments and preventing illnesses.  Their main focus is on addressing the underlying root cause of disease instead of just covering up symptoms.  

Additionally, they believe patients ought to be educated about their conditions and have a better comprehension of their treatment plans and the motive governing the treatment plan. This is why longer (half an hour) office visits with our doctors are routine at Robinhood Integrative Health (RIH).

We have a great, well-trained team of healthcare providers that will do their best so you can experience health as it ought to be. 

Honestly, not much.  Functional and integrative medicine can pretty much be used interchangeably.  

They both strive to treat an individual as a whole and concentrate on developing personalized treatments tailored to treat and cure underlying causes of disease.  They also attempt to restore people to an optimal state of wellness not just an absence of disease.

Our providers have training in both Integrative and Functional Medicine and continue to learn.  Our providers pursue ongoing medical education about various topics including hormones, thyroid dysfunction, anti-aging, chronic infections, Lyme disease, mold toxicity, and IV therapies.  We strive to get better and more comprehensive every year.

We see patients as partners and work closely with you to ensure you’re receiving the treatments you need. 

Our team of integrative health coaches can help with dietary and lifestyle changes to address specific concerns.  They work closely with the doctors/NPs to make sure the patients are able to acheive their health goals.
