Dr. Joseph Mazzei started his journey in medicine at the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine at Midwestern University. He felt the osteopathic medical philosophy fit well with his own, which is to not just focus on illness, but rather on the people who have illnesses. After medical school, Dr. Mazzei completed his residency in Emergency Medicine through Midwestern University in 2003. As an ER physician, Dr. Mazzei had the opportunity and honor to serve in the United States Army. After 9/11, he joined the U.S. Army Reserves and served as a Major in the Army Medical Corp. He served on active duty as an Emergency Medicine Physician at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Landstuhl, Germany during Operation Enduring Freedom in 2005.
Although Dr. Mazzei found emergency medicine to be rewarding and he remains Board Certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine (AOBEM), he decided to continue his medical journey in another direction. Dr. Mazzei became more curious about preventing disease instead of treating the end results of disease. He felt that conventional medical approaches were more focused on treating the results of poor health rather than trying to find the cause of it. He decided to pursue additional training in functional and wellness medicine through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, where he earned credit as an advanced fellow. In 2008, he opened his practice, Evolutions Restorative Health, to focus on functional and preventative medicine. Through experience and continual study, Dr. Mazzei has refined his medical perspective. He applies a comprehensive, functional medicine approach in accordance with solid medical research to support the foundational pillars of health. The goal of treatment is to enable the body to work as efficiently as possible. Dr. Mazzei applies his expertise in nutrition, hormone therapy, gastrointestinal function, immune function and cellular health to pursue this goal. He understands the intimate relationship between these systems and considers them to help his patients improve their health and prevent disease. He also places great importance on a health-mind-body connection and has partnered with Dr. Rae Mazzei to offer behavioral health services to provide a more comprehensive approach to overall health. Poor physical health can affect mental health, while emotional and stress issues can manifest as physical symptoms.
In addition to functional medicine, Dr. Mazzei has also pursued advanced studies in aesthetics and sexual wellness, to help patients further improve their quality of life. He is trained in platelet-rich plasma therapy, which is a cutting-edge modality used to enhance facial aesthetics and sexual wellness therapy plans.
