“Functional Medicine is a personalized, systems-oriented model that empowers patients and practitioners to achieve the highest expression of health by working in collaboration to address the underlying causes of disease”. Functional medicine requires one main commitment from you, the patient, you want to be healthy.
If you had a chance to read the “About Us” tab on our website you will see the dedication and commitment our practice has had from Day 1 in providing individualized care and comprehensive management of the whole person. As the years went on practicing conventional Primary Care, practice Founder and Nurse Practitioner, Erin Bagshaw saw an increasing need to find more answers to chronic diseases which affects almost 1 out of every 2 people in the U.S.
We are one of the few practices in the world Certified as a Functional Medicine provider through the Institute for Functional Medicine. A Functional Medicine consult/package is for the patient who already has a Primary Care provider but is searching for this specialized type of care; either looking for a deep root cause analysis of symptoms or seeking the most preventive type of health care. It takes a considerable amount of time to review a very in-depth history, order and review specialized tests and create individualized treatment plans from a Functional Medicine viewpoint. This often includes utilizing foods for your own biome/genetic markers and/or nutraceuticals and lifestyle changes to make the pathways in your body more functional. We have certified Functional Nutritionists and a Certified Wellness Coach on staff to help patients achieve the highest wellness. If you are ready to transform your health it requires changes to be made. Our practice has the full team needed to address the in-depth treatment plans to help you make these changes.
Please take your time when completing the forms/questionnaires in our Patient Portal, they are essential in our investigation and evaluation of the root cause of your health complaints. Once you have reviewed all the information, or you already know you are ready for our care, please contact our Administrative team for our current package fee. We will not charge you or confirm your appointment until you have agreed to the fee and have reviewed everything needed to complete your first appointment.
We look forward to working with you to transform your health.
