We combine the best of conventional and integrative functional medicine and believe this represents the future of medicine. Our model is:
Investigative: It addresses symptoms by focusing on the underlying cause of the problem, which leads to more profound and longer-lasting results.
Holistic: Envisions the body as an interconnected whole that is in a dynamic relationship to its environment and recognizes the importance of these connections in health and disease. Our philosophy emphasizes a healthy aging vs. anti-aging approach.
Lifestyle oriented: We believe that improving the pillars of health – food, movement, recovery & community allows for the most improvement in people’s health. Sophisticated testing can be used to customize lifestyle behaviors and optimize metabolism rather than following simple protocols.
Patient-centered: It treats the patient, not the disease. Treatments are highly individualized based on patient needs. We emphasize healing, hope, and the therapeutic relationship. We work with you to develop an action plan that is customized to your needs and helps you get on the right track towards wellness and optimized health. When that action plan hits reality, we work with you to adjust actions and create practical solutions.
Safety–oriented: We have a balanced approach to therapeutics whether they are lifestyle, supplements, pharmaceuticals or procedures. We seek to emphasize safety and what can work with the individual.
Focused: Even though we combine the “best of both worlds”, we currently exclude several alternative medicine practices within our model due to the focus and philosophy of the practice. We don’t practice homeopathy, reiki, chiropractic, naturopathy, colonics, or chelation. We don’t have an anti-vaccine attitude. We can refer elsewhere if the patient is actively seeking these out and will offer our individual perspectives on the issues.
Results oriented: Many times, we know what we need to do, however, we don’t how to do it. Our skilled board-certified integrative nurse coaches and Functional Medicine Doctors will work closely with you to get the practical changes to your behaviors and lifestyles that are necessary. Their skills in nutrition, emotional health, stress management and health behavior change all come into play as they develop a personalized and customized plan.
When that plan hits reality and requires changes, our coaches are available through email, text, phone and video conference to help you in real-time to make changes.
We serve patients in Miami, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida.
