Jennifer McGrath

Jennifer has worked at WellMax for over fifteen years. She manages all aspects of patient care. She is meticulous and almost obsessively committed to providing the highest quality of personalized care. She is usually the first one here and the last to leave. She insures that all follow-up care plans are completed and makes certain that your Personal Health Portfolio™ is “buttoned up.”

Jennifer also does lots of hands-on patient care. She is licensed to perform the DEXA bone density and body composition studies. She administers cognitive tests and manages polysomnography and many other tests.

She arrived in the desert here from Beaverton, Oregon, which she liked, but she believes is too cold and rainy there for full time living. She likes it better here (with us!).

LaRue previously worked for two years with Dr. Daniel Cosgrove and has now returned as a Certified Life Coach and patient coordinator. She often works with new patients, and helps patients achieve fitness and nutrition goals.

She has a special interest in the Bredesen Protocol and approach to patient care.

She has degrees in Business Administration and Social Behavioral Science, and has a certification as a Life Coach.

La Rue’s husband Aarron is a certified personal trainerand owner of Trainer Joe’s Fitness in Palm Desert.She enjoys spending time with family, traveling, reading and writing poetry.

Renee has worked at WellMax over thirteen years. She loves the idea of uncompromising patient care and she has remained committed to that promise for WellMax patients.

She worked at a major hospital as a phlebotomist where she gained true expertise in blood draws for labs. She manages most of our laboratory procedures of all types.

Renee has experience in urgent care and surgical procedures. She previously worked full-time in ENT and oncology offices, so she is familiar with intensive medical care of patients. She is trained in obtaining electrocardiograms, cardiac stress testing, DEXA, gynecology, and other procedures. She has built long-standing relationships with various specialty offices and she coordinates specialty care for WellMax patients.

Renee is proud of her son in the United States Air Force, and her daughter is now going off to college. She loves to cook, especially “Tex-Mex” food. Although originally from Texas she has made the desert her home.
