An educated patient is what we strive for.  Dr. Lawson is an avid researcher of the latest in scientifically validated protocols and she is very generous in sharing this knowledge with her patients.  Knowledge gives patients the ability to make informed decisions.


The dream of personalized medicine — in which diagnostics and treatment are based on genetic profiles is not here yet.  But today, we use conventional and advanced diagnostic testing to help patients understand their risk factors, identify early disease formation, and prevent disease.


Rejuvenation is part “art” and part “science”.  Our rejuvenation programs are highly individualized to help patient’s optimize their health, slow and reverse the aging process and regain their youthful vitality.  For many patients, rejuvenation transforms their lives.

Helping Patients Achieve Optimal Health One at a Time!

Founded in 2006, Proactive Wellness Centers (PWC) is a leading integrative, Anti-Aging physician practice, serving Northern Virginia, Washington, DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania and many patients who travel thousands of miles for personalized care. The practice provides men and women with physician directed programs that promote vibrant health, longevity and wellness.

The practice reflects Dr. Lawson’s passion to bring an integrative approach to patient care that merges the latest in scientifically-validated treatment protocols with the best of conventional medical therapies. 

PWC specializes in treating men and women with bioidentical hormone replacement (BHRT),  a healthy approach to weight management, a functional approach to disease prevention and treatment, and therapies to reverse the symptoms of aging and enhance overall wellness and longevity.  In 2012, the Practice has introduced two new specialty areas to include Fibromyalgia and Fatigue and Cardiovascular Disease.  Dr. Lawson is very passionate about the Advanced Cardiac Evaluation (ACE) and Treatment Programs that she developed to help patients beat this #1 Killer disease.  The ACE Program focuses on early detection using advanced CIMT imaging, emerging biomarkers and genetic analysis and the Advanced Cardiac Treatment (ACT) Program brings the latest in scientifically validated integrative care to help patients prevent, reverse and mitigate cardiovascular disease.

Across all of our treatment protocols and modalities, our functional approach recognizes the interconnection between the systems of the body and treats the body as a holistic system of systems. Through our functional approach, we focus on underlying causes, healthy lifestyle changes, and treatment modalities that increase the body’s ability to achieve optimum function and the avoidance of disease.  We are an integrative practice and we do believe that at times traditional prescriptions and medical therapies may be appropriate and necessary, but we are always looking for the safest and most effective approach to healing, rejuvenation and prevention.

Our high-touch, individualized approach to health care recognizes that every person is biochemically unique and accordingly, no two people will respond to treatment in the same way or in the same timeframe.  Our physicians work with each patient to implement treatment programs that work towards achieving that patient’s individual health objectives.
