Kenneth A. Litwin, MD FACP IFMCP, is a highly respected, board-certified Primary Care/General Internal Medicine physician.
This exciting and reinvigorating stage in his career began after a colleague fortuitously introduced him to Functional Medicine. Using the techniques learned through his training with the Institute of Functional Medicine, Dr. Litwin has been able to provide even more effective care for his patients.
For more than 15 years, Dr. Litwin has enjoyed helping the most challenging patients with complex chronic and acute medical issues using traditional medicine skills learned from his training at the Hahnemann University School of Medicine and from his Residency in Primary Care Internal Medicine at the Yale University School of Medicine.
In recent years, Dr. Litwin has taken a more holistic and integrative approach to patient care. This exciting and reinvigorating stage in his career began after a colleague fortuitously introduced him to Functional Medicine. Using the techniques learned through his training with the Institute of Functional Medicine, Dr. Litwin has been able to provide even more effective care for his patients. He now can focus his attention on the prevention of disease through nutrition and lifestyle improvements. He has discovered that he is able to treat his patients much more successfully through searching out and treating the true causes of their conditions rather than by simply prescribing medications to relieve their symptoms. He is therefore better able to help those patients for whom conventional medical approaches have helped only marginally or even failed completely.
Dr. Litwin currently serves as Section Chief, Division of Outpatient Medicine at Danbury Hospital and as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Fairfield County Medical Association. He is a member of the Connecticut State Medical Society and the American College of Physicians.
