Lequawn is a registered nurse & certified adult-gerontology nurse practitioner specializing in mental health and addiction medicine, orthopedics and sports medicine, as well as anti-aging and hormone replacement. He is the Owner & Operator of Gentle Giant Care, LLC in Atlanta, Georgia.
Although his areas of specialization are on different realms of the healthcare spectrum, he finds them very rewarding in their own way. He has the unique opportunity to give patients a second chance at life through mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional health rebuilding. On the orthopedic side, he encounters many patients who have spent years in pain without results from various surgeries and use of painkillers. Through naturopathic and homeopathic treatments, he is given the opportunity to help patients relieve pain and increase their activity level and function without the use of countless narcotics and surgery.
“My office is not just a place where I specialize in treating pain. I also treat patients’ abnormal hormones and the various symptoms that develop as a result of these abnormalities, through the use of the Biote method (pellet insertion), as well as injectable testosterone. Additionally, I use regenerative medicine to aid in joint, muscle, ligament, and tendon repairs; anti-aging, hair-restoration, as well as Botox and fillers” expressed Lequawn.
In 2012, he graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Newberry College. He then went on to earn his Master of Science in Nursing degree from South University in 2017.
Before he became a nurse practitioner, he spent nearly 8 years working in the emergency department and intensive care unit as a nurse where he saw and treated everything one can name.
Attributing his skills of today to the many years in the trenches as a nurse, Lequawn is certified by the American Board of Nurse Practitioners, Biote certified to implement pellets for hormone replacement therapy and thyroid treatments, and certified through Allergan to use Botox products of all kinds.
A member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, he holds certifications in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Basic Life Support (BLS – not intended for postnominal use).
