Leslie G. Ahlers, M.D.
Dr. Leslie Ahlers is a family physician with expertise, training, and board certification in Addiction Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Medicine. She is co-owner of Live Healthy PA, a pain management and wellness consulting practice she founded with her partner, Christopher Massoglia, DC, in Apple Valley, MN. She has a BA in Psychology, Summa Cum Laude, and an MBA from Niagara University, Niagara Falls NY, in addition to her MD from SUNY at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. She practiced the full scope of family medicine for Mayo Health System for 7 years, then moved to the Twin Cities where she was a hospitalist for patients with addictions at St. Joseph’s Hospital Chemical Dependency treatment unit. She subsequently worked as a Hospice and Palliative care physician for patients with terminal illnesses. During this time, she obtained board certification in Addiction Medicine, as well as Hospice & Palliative medicine, and started her Wellness Consulting practice, True Peace Now, providing coaching, counseling, and guidance to clients seeking maximum health and wellness through assessment and treatment of a combination of physical, psychological, social, and spiritual problems. With her experience in the above areas of medicine, she subsequently provided consulting and pain management services for chronic pain patients at Britton Center in St. Paul, MN. She and Dr. Chris are now providing pain management and wellness consulting at their private practice Live Healthy Pain Centers, with locations in Apple Valley and Shoreview MN.
Combining their talents and experience in both traditional allopathic and osteopathic medicine, Dr. Ahlers and Dr. Chris are successfully helping their patients achieve pain control and maximization of quality of life they had never experienced before. Through the integration of medical care, chiropractic care, weight loss, nutrition, exercise, massage, acupuncture, and life and health coaching, their patients have enjoyed success in the areas of their lives most important and fulfilling to them. “My greatest joy is hearing a patient tell me their pain is better, and they are living life in ways they never thought would be possible again. They have hope for their future, and are relieved that they are no longer limited by their pain, and can now do the things they love but were previously impossible due to pain.”
