Dr. Lilli Link Has Joined Parsley Health in NYC

May 21, 2020

Parsley Health couldn’t be happier to welcome Dr. Lilli Link, MD to our practice in NYC. She’s currently seeing patients.

Dr. Link is a board certified internist and has been practicing functional medicine since 2006. She completed her training in internal medicine in 1997 at New York Presbyterian Medical Center. She then continued her education, studying lifestyle change and cancer, at Weill Cornell Medical College. Afterwards she completed a fellowship in Cancer Epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health where she continued her research on diet and cancer.

She is also the mother of three and lives with her family and their rescue dog in Manhattan.

Dr. Link was chosen for Parsley Health through a very competitive vetting process. She was selected for her expertise in functional nutrition and supplements, digestive health, metabolism and inflammatory/autoimmune diseases. She is also incredibly nurturing and warm and was an immediate fit with our team.

Dr. Link is currently seeing patients and taking appointments. We know you will enjoy working with her! You always have the option of seeing any of our Parsley Health doctors, regardless of which doctor you have seen in the past. Our system is structured so that we all have the right information about you, in detail, and can support one another’s patients seamlessly.

We asked Dr. Link a few questions to help you get to know her better.

PH: What first attracted you to Parsley Health?

LL: I have been in practice as a solo practitioner-integrative/nutrition specialist for the past 11 years.  There were a few things that attracted me to Parsley.  First, I love the business model.  With functional medicine, having 5 ‘pre-paid’ visits really encourages the patient to follow through with their own wellness.  Also, what an amazing feature to have the health coaches there to support the patient with making lifestyle changes that can be really challenging.  I also missed working with colleagues where we could learn from each other and get second opinions on complex patients.

PH: Why did you want to be a doctor in the first place?

LL: I had to answer the ‘why do I want to be a doctor’ question when I was applying to medical school, and it felt so unoriginal to say that I wanted to help people, but that was the truth and it still is.  The human body is fascinating and, for me, being able to help someone feel better is so fulfilling.

PH: How did you end up working in functional medicine?

LL: I grew up in a ‘health minded’ home that was actually rather anti-doctor funnily enough.  I had some general ideas of what it meant to follow a healthful lifestyle, but with medical school and residency, I certainly didn’t do so.  And with the emphasis in medical school on using medicine and surgery to treat all ailments, I kind of forgot about how important lifestyle is.  However, 18 years ago I was diagnosed with a rather aggressive cancer, and that was when my eyes were opened to the idea that I couldn’t rely solely on conventional medicine to get well.

PH: What do you do in your spare time?

LL: I spend a lot of time in the kitchen trying to provide nourishing food for myself and my family.  I also spend a lot of time shuttling my kids from one activity or play date to the other.  At this moment in my life, there is no such thing as spare time, but were I to have some, I really enjoy yoga, especially Bikram, reading a good mystery novel, riding my bike around Central Park, playing tennis and writing.

Parsley Health is the only medical practice that leverages personalized testing with whole body treatments.
