Alice M. "Ami" Ingram, MD
Dr. Ingram has returned to North Carolina after having been away twenty years. She received her undergraduate degree in biology from North Carolina State University and her medical degree from Brody – ECU School of medicine in Greenville, North Carolina. Family practice residency in San Diego, California, took her out of the state. She then joined a practice in rural East Texas where she was the only female physician for 3 counties. Though delivering care to patients of all ages, a large part of that practice was women and children, including obstetrics. She joined the VIM staff in August of 2015.
Dr. Ingram has always been interested in natural and alternative medicine and has become frustrated with allopathic medicine’s habit of writing countless prescriptions. Amazed by the human body’s intricate systems and the body’s ability to heal itself, she sought out further training in Nutrition and Functional Medicine.
Her medical interests include treating people with Diabetes and ADD/ADHD and promoting lifestyle changes to enhance health and vitality. Patients looking to reach their optimal weight appreciate her warm and compassionate approach.
Dr. Ingram and her husband moved to Greensboro in the summer of 2015 with their two school-age children to be closer to her family. They are involved in Scouts, sports and church. Dr. Ingram enjoys organic and hydroponic gardening, yoga and healthy cooking.
