About Advanced Life Care

Advanced Life Care is owned by Dr. Hayley DeGraaff, an Arkansas native and graduate of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Dr. DeGraaff originally completed her residency in family medicine at UAB, but later went on to work in geriatrics as an associate professor of medicine at UA - Huntsville. It was during this time that she became interested in anti-aging medicine and the growing effort to improve overall patient wellness.

After pursuing additional training in the field, Dr. DeGraaff opened Advanced Life Clinic in 2004, starting with simple anti-aging procedures but quickly adopting an overall, integrative practice that includes lifestyle coaching, weight loss, and wellness. Today, the Advanced Life Clinic is one of the region’s foremost destinations for patients interested in a whole-body approach to looking and feeling younger.

Over the past several years, Dr. DeGraaff has noticed that many of her current aesthetic and wellness patients have expressed frustration in finding a good primary care doctor. This is what inspired Dr. DeGraaff to open Advanced Life Care and give patients a new approach to affordable, exceptional primary health care. Dr. DeGraaf's goal has always been to provide a whole health approach and this model truly allows her to provide just that. 

Dr. DeGraaff has been licensed to practice medicine in Alabama since 1996, and is a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine as well as a past member of the American Academy of Family Practice. 

Dr. DeGraaff is pleased to introduce our Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, Kari DeGrandpre.

Kari began her nursing career in 2002 and received her Master Degree as a family nurse practitioner in 2016 from The University of Alabama Huntsville.
