Who We Are
We are a team of healthcare professionals who believe health is both a personal responsibility and a personal choice. We further believe that optimal health can only be attained when the body functions properly. As such, we practice from a Functional Medicine perspective. Functional Medicine serves as a “bridge” between standard pharmaceutical-based medicine and holistic therapies, focusing on restoring the body’s ability to function in the manner it was designed.
What We Offer
We offer family medicine services, primary care, and acute care with a functional medicine approach. We spend considerably more time with our patients than most insurance-based primary care practices because we believe in the importance of a therapeutic relationship. While prescription medication may be part of your treatment, our ultimate goal is to work with you to correct the cause of your symptoms and improve overall health. We offer Functional Medicine based Family Practice services, focusing on optimizing overall health. We treat chronic disease and infection as well as working with patients who want to maintain optimal health. We offer acute care visits for established patients. The typical patient is interested in and committed to either re-gaining or maintaining optimal health. We serve as both a health manager and partner in your care, but recognize that the ultimate arbiter of personal health is you.
The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
Common Questions About Our Practice
“...The goal of Functional Medicine is to not just treat symptoms, as in the standard acute care model followed by most health care providers today. Rather, Functional Medicine seeks to go ‘upstream’ from where the symptoms began and address the root causes of the symptoms. By addressing the root cause of the symptoms and correcting ‘dysfunction’ in the body, all patients become healthier and a large number find partial to full relief of symptoms.” (www.IFM.org)
