Health care that puts the patient first

In a world that insists on racing ahead, one family nurse practitioner realized there’s more to be gained by slowing down a bit.

At Anchored in Health, Amy Ester, FNP-C, knows her patients by name, understands their concerns and makes it her mission to find solutions that aren’t limited by standard treatments and therapies.

“I wanted to go back to how medicine used to be when you had a relationship with your provider. I felt like traditional health care was moving away from treating the patient and more about treating the disease process,” says Amy. “I really want the patient to know that they are heard and that we will work as a team to better their health.”

Patients who come to Anchored in Health are tired of being seen as a number. They want to be seen as an individual by a provider who’s eager to find the cause of their symptoms, not just write a prescription.

Born and raised in Central Florida, Amy enlisted as an X-ray technician in the United States Army and served for six years, during which she found her calling to become a nurse.

Amy earned her Master of Nursing, specializing in Family Nurse Practitioner. She has since practiced in family medicine, urgent care, obstetrics, and gynecology.

Amy launched Anchored in Health in 2021 and has been in her current Oxford location since May 2023.

Her practice offers membership-based health care in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Patients pay a flat fee per month based on their age range. This option is especially convenient for those who don’t have health insurance, have a high deductible, or just need a provider who is easier to see for routine visits.

Many women find it frustrating to find both a primary care provider and another provider for women’s health. Thanks to her background in women’s health, Amy handles both.

From wellness exams and general health to preventative care and well-woman exams, family planning, minor injuries, sports physicals, and more, Anchored in Health has become the provider of choice for many Central Florida residents.

The clinic also offers vitamin infusions and weight management options for preventative care.

“I want my patients’ lasting impression to be that they’re seeing a trusted provider who cares, sees them as person—not a number–and will fight for their health,” says Amy.
