conversations over the phone or video chat. Welcome to true preventative care tailored individually for you by a doctor who takes a functional approach to your health.

What is Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is a systems biology approach to health and disease. Instead of looking at organ systems (heart, lungs, gut, nervous system, etc.) as separate entities, functional medicine examines how the body functions as a whole. In doing so, the root cause of disease is often uncovered and the healing process can occur.

Often times, a specific diagnosis can be the result of many different factors. One root cause can also manifest as many different symptoms. How those symptoms manifest depends on an person’s genes, environment and lifestyle.
