FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What makes your approach unique?
First and foremost, we offer patient centered care (as opposed to disease centered care). We treat the person, not the disease. Each person brings with them a unique clinical presentation. Because of genetics, our environment, our accumulated toxic load, lifestyle habits, and other important factors, we offer individualized care plans. The customized care program is at the core of our functional medicine approach.
How do you determine what’s wrong with me?
Our clinical decision making involves taking a comprehensive history followed by laboratory testing. We start off with standardized blood and urine testing to get a medical baseline. However the overall tests we order is more comprehensive than what is typically done in the HMO/PPO driven medical office. Additionally, we feature advanced functional medicine lab analysis such as:
• Autoimmune Arrays
• Food Sensitivity/Allergy Testing
• Gluten & Cross Reactivity Testing
• Fatty Acid Profiles
• Toxicity Testing
• Inflammation & Oxidative Stress Tests
• Stool Analysis With Parasitology
• Methylation Profiles
• Nutritional Analysis
• Adrenal Testing
• Sex Hormone Testing
We leave no stone unturned in our pursuit to find and eliminate the hidden root causes of your health problems.
