Dr. Stranckmeyer has been practicing medicine since 2013 and has treated thousands of patients with a wide range of conditions. He is double Board Certified in Family Medicine and Addiction Medicine and is currently continuing his education with obtaining a Board Certification with the Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.  He received his medical degree from the University of Medicine and Health Sciences and completed his residency in Family Medicine at CoxHealth in Springfield, MO. 


After residency, Dr. Stranckmeyer specialized in pain management and addiction medicine. After years of helping patients navigate chronic pain and addiction recovery, he was led to expand his practice to provide his patients with additional modalities and holistic approaches to encompass healthy aging and overall well-being.  He specializes in helping patients achieve optimal physical and mental health and specializes in hormone optimization, weight management, and behavioral and mental health treatments.   


Before becoming a physician, Dr. Stranckmeyer proudly served in the United States military as a Marine, embodying the core values of the USMC - honor, courage and commitment. These values continue to guide his approach to patient care and show in his dedication to staying current with medical advancements and honoring the oaths he took as a physician.

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Stranckmeyer enjoys life with his wife and three children. He's a diehard Chicago Bears fan, an enthusiast of running and weightlifting, and the proud caregiver to over 100 plants. 

"I met Dr. Stranckmeyer at a medical training course he was teaching at.  After learning more about how he was helping patients at his practice, I made the decision to have him oversee my medical care.  During my first appointment he gave me a comprehensive exam and listened to my concerns and my health goals. He suggested we order labs to check my hormone levels and also suggested we test for ADHD. 
Soon after getting my results back - I found out I had undiagnosed ADHD and had low T levels which had been causing me to struggle with negative symptoms for years. Due to his expertise and guidance in creating a customized treatment plan for me- I have improved focus, energy, and an overall sense of fulfillment on a day-to-day basis. I recommend him to all of my friends who complain about againg and who want to feel better!"

"I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a retreat Kristen hosted in Ojai, California in 2018, and it was an experience that created momentum and positive change in my life. I was initially invited by a friend to what was described as a "magical adventure," with promises of self-discovery, fun and meeting great people. 
Kristen, from the very beginning when I first contacted her to register, made me feel extremely welcome, and it felt as though I was destined to be there as a part of the retreat group. The connections I made during the retreat were indeed magical. I learned a lot about myself, my values and desires in life and I am SO grateful for the experience. I absolutely loved the activties she had planned for us - yoga, horseback riding, reiki, salsa dancing lessons, glamour shots (LOL) - it was truly a perfectly curated event.
