At WellnessMD, I use my knowledge and experience in conventional medicine in conjunction with the functional medicine model to advance my patients’ health focusing on the underlying causes of illnesses in treating each individual.
My approach during your wellness consultation is to get a good understanding of you through your history, lifestyle factors such as sleep, exercise, nutrition, stress levels, relationships, etc. These are the foundation, when influenced may then result in fundamental imbalances that a grouped into a diagnosable constellation that we call disease.
Your story is then organized according to common underlying mechanisms that influence health. Where further investigation is needed, we will recommend your samples for testing by specialty laboratories.
We leverage your laboratory data and other investigational outcomes to support you in better understanding and identifying the root cause of your illness, and help determine the areas of you that may need individualized therapeutic interventions. Our overall aim is to co-create a trusting patient-doctor partnership for your care.
A periodic review and evaluation of your progress will include emphasis on our shared commitment to ensure we stick to your healing plan, celebrate progress, and make modifications where necessary. We may recommend personalized health coaching to enhance patient engagement and compliance.
