    Why Beverly Hills?

    Beverly Hills, CA has a dense population ranging in age from Neonates to Geriatrics based upon the 2015-2016 US Census demographic results. Although this objective data exists, less than 1% of the physicians in Beverly Hills are Board Certified Family Medicine.

    In addition, there is an obvious demand for medical services extending beyond traditional primary care (i.e., Hormone Replacement Therapy, Aesthetics, Weight loss Management, Pain Management, House calls and Telemedicine). However, it was noted to be atypical in the Beverly Hills community for multiple services to be offered under one roof.

    Taking all of these factors into consideration, Beverly Hills, CA was determined to be the ideal location
    to open a Full-Service Boutique Family Medical Practice.

    WHY CHOOSE DR. TESS

    MY BACKGROUND

    Dr. Tess, an African American female who overcame all the obstacles of inner-city Chicago, is now a Board-Certified Physician and the proud President/CEO & Founder of the newly-opened solo medical practice Dr. Tess of Beverly Hills.  She has over 10 years of clinical experience and close to 20 years’ experience in business ownership.  While she currently resides in California, she is licensed to practice medicine in six states of the USA (California, New York, Illinois, Indiana, Montana and Nevada).

    WELL QUALIFIED

    Dr. Tess earned her Medical Degree from University of Illinois at Chicago while simultaneously earning her Master’s Degree in Physiology and Biophysics which resulted in her being the only “double-hooded” graduate in a class of greater than 500 students.  She was successfully accepted as a General Surgery Resident and received outstanding training from Rush University Medical Center (Chicago) and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (Los Angeles).  However, while working as a Flight Surgeon in the California Air National Guard she appreciated the necessity for a strong foundation in primary care in order to offer exceptional care to the American troops and their families.  Therefore, Dr. Tess transitioned to Family Medicine receiving her board certification in December, 2014.  Post-residency training, Dr. Tess went on to become Fellowship-trained in Age Management Medicine which provided her the fund of knowledge required to confidently perform bio-identical hormonal therapy.  She is also certified in Advanced Aesthetic Procedures, Hair Loss Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, Medical Weight Loss Management, Pain Management and Male/Female Sexual Dysfunction.
