All our practitioners excel at determining the underlying reasons for any symptoms you are experiencing, and optimizing health, through the practice of functional medicine. This requires that careful attention be paid to all the nuances that make up YOU.

Your first visit to our clinic (whether with one of our physicians or nutritionists, in person or via telehealth) will be significantly longer than standard healthcare evaluations. This extra time allows us to take a complete medical, environmental, dietary, lifestyle, and social history, and review past health records. A physical exam may also be performed. The information gathered is analyzed for potential underlying contributors to your health status, and is used to develop a detailed health timeline. We also map your signs, symptoms, and diagnoses to the functional medicine matrix. This matrix is the overarching framework that allows us together to identify the root causes of your health concerns and develop your personalized health roadmap. 

This roadmap will likely incorporate many facets, including:

  • Laboratory evaluation
  • A customized nutritional plan
  • Supplements and/or appropriate medications
  • Lifestyle recommendations such as practical sleep, exercise, stress management, and clean living guidelines

Developing a timeline of your life, including your family history, health history, and the significant events which have affected you during your lifetime, and developing a plan, is a collaborative process.

Nutritionist-Led Services

Our lead nutritionists are state licensed and board certified through the American Nutrition Association, and additionally trained and/or certified in functional medicine. Some clinic patients opt to see our nutritionists only, though there is always the option to add physician consultations later. All nutritionist care is overseen by our clinic physicians and is supported by our nutrition resident team for additional personalized touches.

Meeting at the clinic

Group Sessions

Group sessions provide engaging, valuable, and cost-effective access to functional medicine services. Participants benefit from expert education for specific health concerns, easy-to-implement plans, and resources (including food lists, shopping guides, and recipes), as well as the support and camaraderie of other individuals pursuing the same goals and facing similar challenges.

Your care team will assist you with coordinating and implementing your program- every step of the way. Although the great majority of our clinic patients arrive willing to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes to support their health goals, we understand that making these changes can sometimes still require patience and support. Our aim is to meet you where you are at and support you in the way that works best for you.

Targeted Programs

While all kinds of chronic diseases can be supported through functional medicine, we do offer several additional, unique programs and practices for specific health interests:

  • Methylation Diet & Lifestyle “Younger You” anti-aging program based on the first-of-its kind methylation diet and lifestyle study (led by Dr. Fitzgerald) demonstrating reversal of biological age.

We offer both in-person and telehealth consultations. When working with our physicians, in-person appointments allow us to diagnose and directly treat you. While we don’t take insurance, you may be able to submit costs to insurance for reimbursement and to tax deduct what isn’t covered by insurance.

Telehealth appointments are also available. Although our physicians cannot diagnose or treat you, it is possible to complete a highly detailed investigation, including a history with laboratory analysis, and personalized wellness roadmap. All our nutrition consultations are performed via telehealth.
