Functional Medicine is the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between the practitioner and the patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
// Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine Steering Committee
We view physical, mental and spiritual aspects of life as closely interconnected and equally important approaches to treatment. In this modality, the art and science of healing addresses care of the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.
What to expect
Your initial consultation is a full hour and a half. During a typical evaluation, I will take a complete medical and lifestyle history and perform a physical examination. I am listening for the big picture and am attuned to the tests needed to uncover root causes of illness that may not yet have been uncovered. I work with you to create an individualized program that you can integrate immediately into your life. If you have lab work done elsewhere, please bring copies with you to your appointment.
