Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
I created Omnia Health because I was tired of traditional medicine. 15 minute patient visits, diagnosis and treatments at the whim of medical insurance. It was time for a change. Time to stand up for medicine the way it is supposed to be – physicians and patients working together to create a life of health and vitality. Training in functional medicine opened my eyes to treating the whole person. Listening to their story, understanding their concerns, goals and desires. This is what I love – I love functional medicine because it let's me be the physician I have always desired to be. I will listen and work hard to help.
