What is Functional Medicine?
Our Functional Medicine model of care offers a unique patient-centered approach to treating chronic disease and suffering as well as optimizing wellness. We seek to answer the question “Why are YOU ill?” so that we can deliver personalized, effective care for your needs.
We are dedicated to truly listening to you and taking however much time it takes to get an accurate history and summary from you for your exact conditions with an emphasis on biochemical, genetic and lifestyle factors. We then use this information to identify the root cause of your ailments, specifically looking for triggers such as poor nutrition, stress, toxins, allergens and your microbiome.
How treatment works
Once we identify the issues and how they relate to your conditions, we can customize a treatment plan specifically for you to get you back to living the healthy life that you deserve. Your plan may address many aspects of your life, including physical needs like nutrition, sleep and exercise, along with modifying mental and emotional stressors related to work and social life.
Our expert physicians have decades of combined experience helping patients just like you. Each of our compassionate providers has as their mission to help you understand every aspect of the reasons why you have the conditions you have, along with making sure you are a partner in our plan to help eliminate the disease you are experiencing. Together we will get you on the path to true health and wellness!
