WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Functional Medicine is a systems biology-based approach to healthcare in which the underlying (or root) causes of disease are identified and addressed in order to help patients achieve vitality. This practice accounts for the individual differences in each patient, thus personalizing the healthcare and creating a therapeutic partnership between patient and physician. Functional medicine often involves genetic and environmental studies which allow for a deeper understanding of the patient’s biochemical individuality. The evaluation of a patient’s health status typically involves a detailed history, physical exam, conventional laboratory studies and specialized Functional Medicine laboratory studies. Initial treatment is frequently focused on nutrition and lifestyle modifications, including sleep, exercise and stress management. More advanced treatments vary but may include nutrient supplementation and treatment of underlying infections.

WHAT IS DIRECT PRIMARY CARE?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model which provides direct access to high quality healthcare with a simple membership fee. The defining characteristic of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider.
Direct hassle-free access to your primary care physician.
Discounted rates on labs and radiology.
Unhurried convenient medical visits.
Avoid unnecessary visits to the ER and Urgent Care.
Simple in-office non-emergent procedures included.
Direct Primary Care cuts the middleman out of the doctor-patient relationship. No insurance means that WE work for YOU. In DPC, insurance is saved for emergency and specialty care. That saves you money.
