Charlie Piermarini, PA-C, MSPAS, MS, MPH
Since he was young Charlie has had a passion for medicine and people. During the summers while in undergrad at The University of Arizona, he would work as an EMT at a summer camp serving both children and adults with special needs.
Through these life-changing experiences, he knew he had to pursue his passion for medicine. He continued his education and graduated with a master’s degree in Physiology from The Univeristy of Arizona and he was able to publish his thesis paper in the American Journal of Physiology- Heart and Circulatory Physiology.
He then attended Touro University of California where he completed a dual Master’s of Science in Physician Assistant Science (MSPAS) and Public Health (MPH). He moved back to Arizona where he practiced family medicine and then moved into pain management. He also is the founder and CEO of Restorative Care of Arizona, which is a patient centric wellness clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, where they specialize in personalized medicine and taking care of the whole patient.
While practicing pain management, he noticed the increase in use of CBD with his patients. Some were getting benefits and some were positive for THC, indicating inferior products. After years of research and experience he decided to start RestorativeCBD to ensure his patients had quality Hemp based CBD products he could trust. He is a co-author on two publictions about CBD that are currently in press waiting to be published. He is also the author of a letter to the editor of The Pain and Therapy Journal regarding the need for more quality CBD products, it can be accessed here.
Throughout his journey, both before medicine and while practicing medicine, he has accumulated different tools and experiences that allow him to give his patients the best care possible. He understands that each patient is different and has their own unique journey of their health care and will require personalized treatments. He understands for a patient to be truly healthy both their physical and psychological health has to be optimized.
