FUNCTIONAL AND INTERNAL MEDICINE IN SOHO
Functional Medicine is a branch of internal medicine that encompasses a system-specific biology–based approach focusing on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual not feeling his / her best each day. The concept behind functional medicine is to go to the doctor to prevent illness and maximize your body’s performance.
Your first visit will be a 90 minute meeting with the physician to walk through personal, family, social, and medical histories. This visit will also encompass an in-depth physical and physical performance-based questions. Labs and vitals will be taken and a follow-up telehealth or virtual visit will be needed 3-4 weeks after the initial visit to go over the lab results and to implement a highly customized plan to optimize your body’s performance. This may include changes to diet and exercise, the addition or removal or vitamin and supplements, and more.
