Dr. Kenneth Wilgers has over 20 years of experience in emergency medicine, hospital and critical care medicine and outpatient family medicine. For the last 10 years, Dr. Wilgers has integrated bioidentical hormones, functional medicine and lifestyle medicine into the day to day care of his patients.
Dr. Wilgers grew up in rural South Dakota. He moved to Texas at age 20 and graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Chemistry. He received his Doctor of Medicine degree from The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. He completed a family medicine residency at UTMB and became board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.
After many years of treating patients with mainstream therapies and seeing them continue to suffer from the same chronic conditions, Dr. Wilgers felt like there had to be something more that he could be doing to help them. That is when he began attending conferences and learning about alternative therapies. He also began to aggressively study medical research literature. He now uses unique and revolutionary therapies to make his patients healthier and happier than ever.
Dr. Wilgers has taught physicians and other practitioners internationally in the art of hormone optimization. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor at Sam Houston State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, where he hopes to inspire the next generation of physicians.
Dr. Wilgers is the owner of Optimus VIP Health in Montgomery Texas, and The Wilgers Clinic in Beaumont, Texas. He serves on several medical advisory boards. He lives in Montgomery, Texas with his wife, Holly and enjoys spending time with his eight children and three grandchildren.
