Christopher Nagy M.D. is a man on a mission. Dr. Nagy has a great deal of medical experience as an Orthopaedic Surgeon over the past 15 years. But, as someone who is passionate about real wellness (rather than merely treating symptoms), he knows that the current practice of medicine does not have all the answers. Dr. Nagy’s goal is to help educate and introduce an important treatment option in medicine, bioidentical hormone optimization. Your Personal Wellness Center was established to offer proactive and interested individuals bioidentical hormone optimization. The purpose of Your Personal Wellness Center includes helping to increase awareness of the options available to help improve one’s quality of life and make possible a healthier, more vibrant life.
Tirelessly studying and reviewing the latest literature and keeping abreast of the newest and most exciting developments allows Dr. Nagy to bring you the most current and efficacious treatments to guide you in the aging process. Patients can rest assured that they have an extremely strong advocate and partner who will guide them where they desire to go on their journey to ultimate wellness.
Dr. Nagy received his medical degree (M.D.) at Wright State University School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio, in 1990. He is practicing as a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon in Salisbury, North Carolina. With his passion to help people beyond the scope of Orthopaedics, he has furthered his training as a fellow in the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. His certification in Mastering the Protocols of Hormone Optimization came under the tutelage of Dr. Neal Rouzier, a renown authority on the subject.

Dr. Nagy created Your Personal Wellness Center in 2010. His mission is to assist patients in receiving the treatments that will allow them to improve their lives beyond what traditional medicine offers. Proper treatment can help one live life as it was meant to be. This type of medical program requires active participation by both parties to bring about the optimal results that are possible.
Personally, Dr. Nagy is married to a lovely wife and has three beautiful daughters. He loves spending time with family, camping, exercising and relaxing together. He enjoys music, Broadway musicals and is frequently caught singing throughout the day. Dr. Nagy has always been a strong advocate of health and wellness. So much so, that he has competed and won on the natural bodybuilding circuit. These life experiences have taught him the level of commitment necessary to achieve a goal and to discover what it takes to achieve ones dreams.
In an effort to improve the whole person, I am always looking for relevant information that will cater not only to the needs of the body but also the needs of the mind/soul. I recently discovered this TED talk by Sherry Turkle, PhD. that delves into a topic that I believe many of us are aware of but possibly haven’t spent a great deal of time considering. A quote from Dr. Turkle quite nicely explains her premise:
“We’re lonely, but we’re afraid of intimacy. And so from social networks to sociable robots, we’re designing technologies that will give us the illusion of companionship without the demands of friendship.”
As we embrace the thrill and intelligence of technology we, in many ways, lose the intimacy of relationships. It is the loss of human interaction that may even further lead us into a sense of loneliness. Being ever more connected, we are also ever more alone.
The points Dr. Turkle makes are quite relevant to our modern society. We long for connectivity but cherish control. As a side effect of trying to “control the conversation” we lose the face to face interaction often necessary to truly connect. Are we dumbing down our communication by thinking only in quick thoughts that can be expressed in 140 characters or less (no, I don’t have a twitter account…yet)?
This post has already exceeded the collective attention span so I will leave you with an excellent talk by Dr. Turkle. The information she provides is thought provoking and I hope it will make you re-evaluate the way you communicate and maintain your relationships. Technology is not bad, we just have to evaluate how it can help, how it can hurt and what price we’re paying for the convenience. This talk, sadly caused me to realize that my primary time of solitude pretty much only occurs when I am mowing the lawn. Other than that, I’m connected, on the move and entrenched in the current system. A wake up call to change.
Take time to smell the roses and share yourself with your loved ones,
