Dr. Chris Renna
Dr. Renna is an esteemed alumnus of the University of Texas and the University of North Texas Health Science Center where he graduated cum laude with a medical degree.

Recognizing this, Dr. Renna set out on a mission to revolutionize the healthcare approach, resulting in the inception of LifeSpan Medicine. This avant-garde system specializes in disease prevention, symptom resolution, and health improvement, all structured around comprehensive medical evaluations. LifeSpan takes a personalized and intensive approach, including features such as round-the-clock access to medical teams and unparalleled follow-up procedures via a concierge support system.
Since opening LifeSpan medicine in 1992, Dr. Renna has maintained a small practice focused on optimal health with two rules.
Everything is about you.
Everything is about your health.
