Dr. Conner has been practicing medicine for over 30 years. She has built a family based general practice based on the principles of both science and spirit, incorporating western medicine, intuition, life experience, and a spirit of aloha.
Dr. Conner studied medicine at Meharry Medical College in Tennessee, with a specialty in pediatrics. After many years of medical practice, she made her way to the Islands in 1994. She finally settled in on the Big Island to build hercurrent practice in 2000.
Over the years she came to the realization that there was something missing in her training, and she began a lifetime’s study of alternative therapies to fill the gaps that traditional allopathic medicine could not fill. This study led, in part, to a realization of the many medical benefits of the cannabis plant.
The healing & Wellness Center was one of the first - and is still one of just a few - medical practices on the Big Island that has the courage to help qualified patients acquire a ‘Medical Marijuana Certificate’ from the State of Hawaii.
Dr. Conner has made an extensive study of applied kinesiology, allergy testing, affirmations & meditation, Magnified Healing, and Reiki(master level) energy work - any of which may be included in your appointment, right alongside traditional western medicine, referrals, and prescriptions(if necessary). Dr. Conner is also an ordained minister, and the founder of the Healing & Wellness Center, the Hilo home of her medical practice.
