Innovative Directions in Health celebrated 12 years in business in September.

Innovative Directions in Health first opened its doors in 2002. It was a new kind of medical clinic, the first clinic dedicated to Preventive Anti-Aging Medicine in the Midwest pioneered by former Oncologist, Dr. Khalid Mahmud.

Our physicians, Dr. Rich Sinda and Dr. Khalid Mahmud believe the solution to maintaining and prolonging quality of life is hidden in “natural” fixes, including the orchestration of hormones such as testosterone, estrogen and progesterone created in natural forms “bio-Identical hormones” and given in natural ways that replenish the body’s hormones as naturally as possible. These natural hormones are what maintain health and youthfullness. They are an essential part of medicine that has been neglected by the many in the medical community.

Over the years our staff has felt an overwhelming outpour of encouragement from our patients. We hear success stories every day from men and women about how they feel. Here are some comments we often hear:

  • “I have my life back again”
  • “The old ME is back”
  • “This saved our marriage”
  • “I have the energy to exercise and do the things I love”
  • “I am sleeping like a baby”

The list goes on and on. It is unusual to go a day without one of our physicians receiving a hug of gratitude.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for helping us succeed and for empowering yourself with knowledge that there are safe and effective options for hormone replacement.

We are looking forward to the future and will continue to stay educated on the latest Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine advances to provide the best care and experience for our patients.


Dr. Rich Sinda, Dr. Khalid Mahmud, Lisa, Sarah & Lindsey
