About Functional Medicine

Through functional medicine, our practitioners at our practice get to the bottom of things specific to your physiology. We use your story, your instincts, your health history, and your data to construct the most complete picture of your health. From this, we will provide a personalized plan for you to follow in order to achieve the best version of your health possible.

Do you feel like somethings off? Are you visiting your doctor hoping to find a resolution to things but only to be told that everything is absolutely fine? Or do you have a diagnosis, but the attention is only given to managing your symptoms with one medication after another? Or do you have symptoms that no one can explain? And is all of this occurring despite visiting one specialist after another?  If you answered yes to any of the above, then functional medicine may be for you and it’s time to give us a call at 925.239.8904 to schedule a FREE consultation.

When To Know That It’s Time to Work With Us?

  • Trying to feel good and healthy is like a full-time job.
  • Even though you’ve been told you’re fine and everything is normal, you don’t feel anything close to fine.
  • You can’t do the things that are healthy for you even when you try…you do your best to sleep 8 hours a night but wake up in the middle of the night…you’d exercise if it didn’t make you feel worse..and eating well is a challenge because you’re confused on what YOU should eat.
  • You know as much about your condition as most doctors.
  • You’re overwhelmed by all the info that’s out there, and most of it’s conflicting.

Virtual Functional Medicine for the Bay Area & Beyond

We understand the difficulties of taking time off work and driving to an appointment. In addition, due to health concerns, handling appointments online can be a much better option for some. That’s why we’ve made sure to offer virtual functional medicine in the bay area.

What does that look like?

VIRTUAL FORMAT

Time is precious…

Forget about taking the day off to visit your doctor or the panic in trying to find a trusted provider closer by.  Our Virtual Zoom platform brings us to you, allowing all of our appointments to be done over your computer.  This translates to fitting in your appointments with us with total ease.  And best of all it is very easy (just click on the link we send you) and you’re all set. And you can use the recording feature in order to listen later.

PATIENT PORTAL

Patient portal access to your labs and records

We want you to have 24/7 access to your labs and records. What that means is that you can communicate secure messages to us, request appointments, or transfer anything directly out of your chart to another provider. You will also use the portal to retrieve invoices to submit to insurance and update any billing information.

TEAM APPROACH

We believe it’s not enough to get well…

What matters even more, possibly, is staying well. We continuously put together all that we know, from where and how to shop, what goes into the perfect smoothie, to what supplements to avoid, and when and how you should detox.
