Hear What Our Patients Have To Say!
"I came to We Care Medicine to treat my health conditions a more natural way by getting to the root cause of my health issues. After visiting with Dr. Engels she suggested that I start with Prolon to set the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. The water mimicking fast was a little tough but the results were inspiring! I lost a total of 7.1 lbs and we developed a plan to transition to a new way of eating. I was thrilled with the instant results and look forward to tackling my list of health concerns with Dr. Engels."
"WeCare medicine is a very helpful and efficient clinic! Dr. Engels diagnosed my condition which I have suffered for years with genetic test and found out root causes. I gained my health back after natural healing treatments. I appreciate your professional service, Dr. Engels! I like your staff, they are accommodate and friendly!"
"Dr. Engels is amazing! I had a great results from her treatment. Thank you so much! Dr. Engels is very knowledgeable, and spent a lot of time explaining how PRP and Exosome work for my chronic joint pain. It is so effective for me, and I feel like I have new joints. I highly recommend Dr. Engels and Wecare Medicine Clinic to everyone suffering from pains."
"Had a wonderful experience with Dr. Engels and her team. She takes a lot of time to listen and understand everything specific to your needs! She helped healed my gut and decrease inflammation.. and also helped prepare my body to get pregnant! Cant thank We Care Frisco enough!!"
"Dr Engles has provided excellent advice, guidance and care for myself and my wife. Everything is catered to our unique health challenges and has resulted in improved health for each of us. It feels like a partnership in health improvement rather than prescribed disease management."
"I highly recommend Dr. Engles! She is kind, caring, makes you feel listened to, and very through in trying to get to the root cause of the symptoms that you have. I've had big digestive issues for years. In the past other doctors have dismissed my concerns or suggested a quick fix that wasn't helpful. With her help, my digestive issues have almost completely gone away! I can't tell you how much of a relief it is to me to finally have answers. Also, she is incredibly knowledgeable. She has offered me so many little suggestions or changes in my lifestyle that I was able to easily make that have added up to make a big difference. Go see her, you won't regret it!"
"I can not thank Dr. Engels enough for her help. She is very patient and knowledgeable. She listened to all my issues and was able to answer my questions. I have had a major digestive issue my whole life. As many doctors I have seen through out my life, she was the only doctor that was able to tell me what was going on. I also have had a running nose most of my adult life. I was told it was due to seasonal allergy and was always taking pills and nose sprays. I recently started having a cough that would not go away, so I went to see my primary physician. She wanted me to get a chest x-ray and go see an ENT. I decided to give a Functional Doctor a try first. After seeing Dr. Engels, reviewing my results and started the directions she gave me, I finally got rid of all my issues. I was highly sensitive to many foods. Once I started eating the foods that were good for my body, my nose stopped running and my cough went away, with NO MEDICATION. I had more energy and was clear headed. I also was having trouble losing weight. I did a 5 day detox that Dr. Engels recommend, and with in 3 weeks I lost 10lbs. I could go on and on about how function medicine has changed my life and how grateful I am for Dr. Engels."
"Two weeks ago I started the Prolon five day diet regimen at Dr. Engels’ suggestion. Recent tests had revealed an elevated amount of visceral body fat, and my main goal was to get that down to the healthy range. I had previously done dietary plans for reducing carbohydrates and had found them to be very difficult. Prolon was not. Day one was difficult, but by the end of day two my body had begun to adapt. My experience continued to improve for the remainder of the five days. The food tastes better than I expected. On day five I went to the gym to repeat the scan I had done before starting Prolon, and for a mild workout ( they caution you against overexertion). The scan revealed I had lost eight pounds, and my visceral body fat was within the healthy range. Curiously, my skeletal muscle mass had increased even though I was physically inactive the previous four days. I’ll let Dr. Engels explain why that happened. What I know, at the gym, I set three personal strength records that day. Since completing Prolon I’ve gone back to a normal diet, although with more discipline. I’ve gained back one pound. So, yes, I am enthusiastic about what Dr.Engels and Prolon have done for me!"
"Jennifer is an exceptionally thoughtful, thorough physician who obviously cares about her patients as people and who works in a highly collaboratively manner to get to the root of problems. Receiving such highly-personalized care from a doctor is unfortunately rare, as is Jennifer's focus on holistic, preventive care that can eliminate many issues before they turn into problems. I highly recommend We Care Frisco--you will experience state of the art medicine as it should be practiced everywhere."
"I had been trying to gain muscle for years but didn’t see myself looking stronger/weighing more despite being able to lift much heavier weights. Dr. Engels discovered I had an issue with metabolizing my food and gave me a powder to take. That powder has helped me gain 10 pounds of muscle mass in 6 weeks. I have also felt much healthier overall. I highly recommend Dr. Engels and her services. She did a great job discovering the underlying cause of my issues and treated me with respect and kindness."
"Dr Engels and her staff are so personable and very professional. I have learned so much from my visits there and just talking with Dr Engels about my labs & her knowledge has given me great tools to know what is happening within my body and what supplements or hormones I was lacking. This has made a world of difference to me and I am excited to have found a partner in my journey of staying in the best health as I move through my 2nd half of life!! So grateful to have found WeCare and Dr Engels."
"Blood tests indicated I had elevated liver enzymes (NOT due to alcohol consumption!) that needed to come down. Working with Dr. Engels, I discovered intermittent fasting (IF). Through a combination of increased exercise, better, more controlled eating and IF, I have lost almost 20 pounds, and the liver enzymes are vastly improved and within acceptable levels. Thank you, Dr. Engels. You get five stars on my five-star scale!"
"Dr. Engels is amazing! We have been on a long journey with lots of stomach issues, and she has taken so much time with us, listening to us and focusing on our concerns and priorities. We are definitely headed in the right direction due to all of her detailed exams and specific diagnostics. Her treatment plans are very patient centered and have been very successful with the health of my daughter. thank you!"
"I had an injury and couldn’t lift my right arm up. I tried Chiro, Acupunture with not much results and didn’t want to use painkillers to mask the problem. I had three sessions of PRP with a treatment of acupuncture - I felt the results after the 1st visit. I no longer have pain and really thank Dr. Engels for what she does. She truly cares about her patients."

We work with you to determine the root cause, rather than just treat your symptoms.
The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, science-based approach that relies on a detailed understanding of each patient’s environmental, biochemical, and lifestyle factors, to create personalized treatment plans. By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners may find one condition with many different causes and, likewise, one cause resulting in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.

A new focus, a new path forward
“I was absolutely fascinated,” Engels says, “by this new style of medicine that saw the patient as a whole biological system rather focusing on only one organ system at a time, such as Cardiology. This was a complete paradigm shift from conventional medicine and how I was trained.”
