As the Medical Director of AgelessHealthMD, Dr. Honing is dedicated to working alongside his patients to assess symptoms and lab work. When looking at lab results, Dr. Honing strives to “interpret symptoms and labs together” so that he can “make the biggest difference in their lives.” He believes that by working together on solutions, patients will become more knowledgeable about how to evolve their lifestyle to prevent deficiencies.
Dr. Eric Honing’s passion for helping others began with his own experience as an elite athlete. After playing Division I tennis at the University of Texas San Antonio, he went to the 1985 Canada Summer Games winning the silver medal in tennis. His own sports injuries and subsequent experience receiving treatment from sports medicine physicians sparked an interest in the function of the human body. After playing and coaching tennis in Australia, Dr. Honing attended medical school in order to pursue his dream of helping others feel their very best.
Dr. Honing began his career in the field of sports medicine, becoming the youngest Head Team Physician at Utah State University. After 8 years of practicing sports medicine, he ventured into family practice. Over 7 years of working in family practice, Dr. Honing became concerned about how medicine was delivered to his patients. Frustration built as he saw doctors were not encouraged to look at “why” their patients became ill and instead used a prescription as a “Band-Aid” to simply cover up the underlying cause of the illness. His hunger for knowledge and passion to thoroughly heal people led him to seek training to become a functional medicine physician. He completed his specialized training with the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, embracing functional medicine and preventive therapies.
When asked about the motto of his practice, Dr. Eric Honing says he wants his patients to know that he values hearing what each patient has to say about their life and health. In contrast, as with some traditional medicine practitioners, he takes the time to “listen, listen, and listen” and validate the concerns of every patient, tailoring treatments along with his patients so they become a part of their healthcare and wellbeing.
Not only does Dr. Honing know his way around the doctor’s office, he has also authored sports medicine articles in renowned journals and lectured at several national sports medicine conventions. Guest starring on TV morning shows, Fox 10 Arizona and Sonorran Living, Dr. Honing has shared his advice as a functional medicine physician and hormone specialist.
Dr. Eric Honing graduated from the University of British Columbia School of Medicine and completed his internship and residency at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Honing is board certified in Family Practice and Certified Sports Medicine, and he is an active member of the fellowship for Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine.
