OUR PHYSICIANS

Dr. Joseph Cohen, D.O.

After having practiced as an obstetrician/gynecologist with concomitant residency training at a Yale University affiliated hospital, Dr. Cohen subsequently developed an interest in Cannabis and Functional Medicine after returning from New Zealand in 2009. Having treated thousands of patients with cannabinoids, Dr. Cohen is considered an expert in this new frontier. He believes that the most significant results from the use of cannabis occur when finding, and removing, triggers of disease along with good nutrition and lifestyle choices. Dr. Cohen’s areas of interest include the prevention and treatment of auto-immune and age-related diseases. He is the Medical Director and founder of Journey 2 Life, Holos Health, and CannaKoru. 

Dr. Lisa Rittel, D.O.

Dr. Lisa Rittel earned her B.A. at Harpur College in Binghamton, New York. Before going to medical school, she attended the New England School of Acupuncture in Watertown, Massachusetts. She completed her D.O. degree at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, Maine. Dr. Rittel moved to Colorado where she raised her family and has been in private practice since 1994.

"Advances in science are giving us breaking news medicine, and our own inner CBD system or Endocannabinoid System is the amazing news of the day." Dr. Rittel is focused on practicing medicine with love and vision, helping people find the choices that are right for them. She has extensive experience in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine, Diet, Nutrition and Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement for men and women.

Dr. David Gordon, M.D.

Dr. David Gordon has spent his entire career helping patients create health. Early on, he realized that blindly following his conventional training and using prescription medication was not making patients feel better or become healthier. From that point on, he has dedicated himself to understanding what creates optimal health and finding the safest, and most effects methods to achieve that goal. He owned, operated, and managed a private primary care clinic for 15 years passing that knowledge on to patients as their educator, mentor and guide. During his time in practice, he witnessed the safety and effectiveness that medical cannabis offered to patients and is excited to be on the forefront of cannabis medicine, bringing that knowledge to patients.

Dr. Gordon received his Medical Doctorate and Residency training at the University of Colorado. He is board-certified in Internal and Integrative Medicine and is a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner through the Institute for Functional Medicine.

4 key pillars — food, movement, relaxation and community — are the cornerstones to achieving optimal health. Dr. Gordon believes that learning about and incorporating these pillars are the path to control your own destiny, understand the root causes of your illness, and distance yourself from a dysfunctional system that stresses drugs and procedures at the expense of true health. When not working to achieve optimal health in others, Dr. Gordon brings those same philosophies to his personal life alongside his wife, two teenagers, and his dog Dexter. He has an active meditation practice and believes that is crucial for balancing the onslaught on information, toxins, and technology to which we are exposed. On days off, you’ll find him playing tennis, riding his bike, or getting out into nature. Cooking and traveling are also things he and his family enjoy.
