About Dr Reihsen ─ a Brief Introduction & Overview

Julie Reihsen, MD, is the founder and a family medicine physician caring for patients at Dallas Family Medical & Aesthetics, located in Addison, Texas. Dr Reihsen has been practicing Family Medicine since 1992. She and her team provide a wide range of health care services for patients of all ages, including a variety of preventive services.

Dr Reihsen's interest in medicine started at a young age as a result of her experiences. In the third grade, she was diagnosed with hearing loss. Over the course of the next 10 years, she had five ear surgeries. During one surgery, she had a complication and lost all her hearing on her left side. She has been wearing hearing aids since then. Through these experiences, she developed a desire to learn more about medicine.

Dr Reihsen founded Dallas Family Medical & Aesthetics in 1997. During her training, she found her aspiration – to work with patients to help them to achieve their health goals. Her enthusiasm for medicine has led her to seek advanced training in sleep medicine, bio-identical hormones, and allergy treatment. She sees her field as being both challenging and deeply rewarding.
