I practice Functional Medicine, a patient-centered approach where I address the root cause of your symptoms. Many patients are treated with band-aid medicine where symptoms are masked by prescription medication and signs from your body are ignored in order to create the illusion of health. I believe that true health and wellness is only possible when each patient is respected as a unique being and an individualized approach is used.
I started my career in Primary Care where the expectation is to address a patient's concerns in 15 minutes or less. This is inadequate. In my practice, I take the time to compassionately listen to your concerns and work to understand the root causes of your symptoms. I also spend time educating you on your condition, and developing a personalized plan geared towards your unique make-up that addresses lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, and environmental influences. In other words, I take a comprehensive approach to getting your body in balance.
This visit will take up to 90 minutes. We will review your history and health concerns in detail. I will order appropriate testing and provide you with initial recommendations.
Follow-up visits are 45 minutes. In your first follow-up visit we review your lab results and create a treatment plan tailored just for you. I answer your questions and address your concerns so that you leave with the confidence that you know you're on the right path to wellness.
Additional follow-up visits are scheduled as needed for your unique situation where we'll further refine your treatment plan as you progress towards optimal health. I'm here to provide all the support you need to keep you on track.
Note: I do not bill insurance. However, I can provide you with a detailed receipt that you can submit to your insurance.
If you have an HSA account or are considering one, it can be used to pay for my services as well as lab testing and supplements.
