What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a holistic medical approach to find the root cause of complex, sometimes chronic issues. A deeper dive into a patient's medical history, current treatments, overall lifestyle and specialized testing allow for a treatment plan to manage multiple factors.

Integrated Medicine Overlaps Conventional and Functional Medicine and Offers an Integrated Scientific Approach
Traditional medicine offers the science to effectively treat disease. However, insurance can limit a provider to diagnose a symtom, then prescribe a treatment, without dertemining root cause and effectivly providing optimal care.
Functional Medicine offers a health-focused, patient centric partership where the patient and provider work together to dive deeper into health, family history, lifestyle and other underlying factors that may influence their well-being.
