Dr. Phyllis Gee is a board-certified gynecologist who has practiced in the Dallas area since 1986 and now provides a full range of progressive gynecologic care in Frisco and Plano, Texas with a focus on women’s health and wellness, including advanced minimally invasive surgery. She has been nationally recognized for her involvement in clinical research in women’s health.
Dr. Gee has conducted extensive clinical research and lectured on uterine fibroids and endometriosis as well as she has been involved in the advancement of minimally invasive and noninvasive technology to treat uterine fibroids. She has also been actively involved in raising awareness and educating other practitioners about hereditary cancer syndromes with her own focus on hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and colon cancer because of her strong family history. She has a broad base of knowledge but has special interests in nutrition, weight management, adolescent gynecology, female sexuality, menopause management, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, digestive disorders, autoimmune disease, and neuro-inflammatory diseases, all of which can be helped by a functional medicine approach.
Dr. Gee earned her BS degree in nutrition from Cornell University. She is a graduate of Wayne State University School of Medicine and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, NY. She began her career serving in the National Health Service Corps in Harlem, NY as a member of the faculty of Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, before relocating to Dallas to work for a large HMO, then subsequently establishing her private practice. Dr. Gee completed comprehensive functional medicine training while enrolled in the Kresser Institute Adapt Practitioner Functional Medicine training program, which has provided her a broad base, upon which to continue to build her knowledge about evidence-based functional medicine principles and practices.
As founder and medical director of Willowbend Health & Wellness, a functional & integrative medical practice in Plano, Texas, she now provides integrative health services to men, women, and adolescents, utilizing functional medical principles to uncover root causes of disease and offering alternatives to conventional treatment options. This is accomplished by utilizing comprehensive diagnostic and lab testing along with a thorough history and timeline with focus on the patient’s whole health.
The philosophy of care at Willowbend Health & Wellness stresses prevention and patient education while combining herbal and botanical therapies and when necessary conventional medical care with functional medicine and other integrative modalities to facilitate the healing process. This philosophy is rooted in a comprehensive approach that combines both physical, mental-emotional and lifestyle medicine. As such, Dr. Gee has adopted her 10 Steps to Optimal Health as the foundation for her functional medicine practice to teach patients that the fastest way to recovering their natural health and vitality is to return to a way of eating and living that more closely matches their genes and biology, while recognizing that ”Your genes don’t determine who you are but they do determine who you have the potential to become.”
Dr. Gee has been actively involved in several hospital, civic and community organizations. She is a sustaining member of the Junior League of Collin County and an active member of the Plano North Metroplex Links Inc. She is married with one daughter and spends her free time volunteering and traveling.
