About Dr. Pegels
Dr. Pegels


Janice Pegels, MD, FAAFP, IFMCP has a longstanding interest in integrative medicine.  She enjoys empowering patients to adopt healthy and balanced lifestyle habits that nurture body, mind, and spirit.

Prior to coming to Northampton, Dr. Pegels practiced primary care and integrative medicine in the Boston area and in Binghamton, NY.  Her medical background includes:  teaching at a family medicine residency, working in college student health and at a women’s health clinic, and serving as a practice mentor to other integrative providers.

Dr. Pegels achieved certification with the Institute for Functional Medicine in 2017 and has adopted their systems biology approach to treating chronic illness which combines evidence-based medicine with an understanding of a patient’s unique biochemistry. Dr. Pegels is also trained in the Dale Bredesen approach to treating cognitive impairment and is a listed provider  with his online recode protocol to optimize cognition through treating multiple causes including inflammation, hormonal insufficiencies, and toxicity.  She utilizes primarily the Shoemaker protocol for treating mold toxicity.  She follows the recommendations of Dr. Richard Horowitz, a leader of ILADS, for treating chronic tick borne illness. 

After gathering a patient’s complete history and reviewing various lab studies, she addresses optimization of digestion and absorption of nutrients, structural integrity (both cellular and musculoskeletal),  hormonal balance (adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormones), mitochondrial health ( associated with energy, neurologic, and psychiatric illness), transport (includes cardiovascular health), defense and repair ( addresses allergy, autoimmune,  and infectious conditions), and biotransformation  (addresses environmental toxins and optimizing detoxification).

Dr. Pegels is a fellow of the American Academy of Family Medicine.  She completed her undergraduate education at Cornell University, attended SUNY Buffalo School of Medicine, and a residency in Family Medicine in Johnson City, NY.  In addition, Dr. Pegels studied acupuncture with the Helms Medical Institute.  Dr. Pegels is married and has two grown children.  She enjoys nature, traveling, music, and dance.
