Our Team


Dedicated & Certified Professionals

Since 1997 The Preventive Medicine Clinic has been a full-service medical clinic and general practice, providing patient care in family practice, internal medicine, surgery, dermatology, routine health maintenance and disease prevention.

We specialize in state-of-the-art therapies, which includes the supplementation of bioidentical hormones: DHEA, testosterone, pregnenolone, estrogen, progesterone, melatonin, and thyroid.

Our Physicians

The program offered at the Preventive Medicine Clinics is the culmination of my own personal experience, and ongoing review of the research and latest scientific studies. As an avid fitness enthusiast, we were finding ourselves rapidly deteriorating and being unable to perform physically as we had in the past.

We experienced aches and pains, loss of muscle and strength, decrease in endurance and lack of desire for physical activity. After replacing all of our hormones back to youthful levels, the pain and deterioration subsided. We am back to what we were years ago. Now we know why we felt so poorly for so many years!

Dr. David Wilgarde has been a resident of the Coachella Valley for the past 25 years.  He is board certified in several medical specialties including internal medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, electrodiagnostic medicine, and a sub specialty certification in pain medicine. He has always had a special interest in bioidentical hormones and has been trained by Dr. Neal Rouzier.

Since moving to the Coachella Valley in 1992, he has served in many different roles including medical director of the acute rehabilitation unit at Desert Regional Medical Center for 12 years. He has also been involved in interventional and chronic pain management for 12 years. He also has an interest in the nonsurgical treatment of chronic spinal pain and more recently developed an interest in the newer technologies of regenerative medicine including platelet rich plasma and stem cell applications for orthopedic conditions.

Dr. Wilgarde is very excited to join Preventive Medicine Centers and offer Dr. Rouzier’s hormone replacement protocol.  His background makes him the perfect candidate to not only help our patients with hormones but he brings great insight into the aging process through his other medical expertise and experience.
