Our personal, patient-based approach to care is backed by science, delivered with compassion, and supported by these truths:
Doctors today are compensated based on productivity and volume. This doesn’t allow them the time to get to the root cause of problems and develop a customized solution. Even if the warning signs of a serious problem are there, they may be forced to take a “wait and see” approach.
That’s not good enough for us. If a serious problem already exists, we investigate the cause instead of immediately prescribing medication.
Once we pinpoint the cause through a comprehensive assessment and appropriate lab testing, we take a holistic, integrative approach to treatment that involves nutrition, lifestyle, support and ongoing monitoring to measure the results. That’s how functional medicine works.
“Throughout the process, we engage, educate, empower and encourage people to make health a priority. We give them the resources and tools they need to make real life changes, and provide the support they need to make those changes stick.”
- Jenna Richardson
