Dr. Beer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Beer "Functional medicine is a new model for how we think about what makes people ill. It views the human body as a network of interconnected and interdependent systems, rather than a collection of autonomous organs that function without affecting each other. Instead of simply treating the disease and its symptoms, functional medicine looks at the whole person. As functional medicine practitioners, we take the time to get to know our patients, listening to their histories to determine how the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors have influenced their long-term health. Exploring an individual's condition by listening to their story gives us the opportunity to see links and associations that may have gone unrecognized, and it opens the door to a wide array of potential solutions. Retelling that story becomes a powerful tool for educating the patient and helping them develop a deeper and more accurate understanding of what is wrong. Patients find this experience helps to demystify what has been happening to them and empowers them to manage their care more effectively."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Beer "Functional medicine is a new model for how we think about what makes people ill. It views the human body as a network of interconnected and interdependent systems.

Instead of simply treating the disease and its symptoms, functional medicine looks at the whole person.

We take the time to get to know our patients, listening to their histories to determine how the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors have influenced their long-term health.

We believe that food IS medicine and that dietary choices are the key factor in managing, maintaining and optimizing health.We acknowledge the importance of lifestyle and address modifiable factors such as exercise, stress management, sleep and relationships with education and support.We believe in the body's ability to heal itself given the right combination of environmental support. When we bathe our DNA with the right nutrients and behaviors, gene expression is modified to our benefit."

RUN, don't walk to Dr. Beer's office. He's the real deal. He's everything you want in a doctor. And more. The kind of doctor that's essentially a needle in a haystack nowadays. He wants to listen. He wants to help. He wants to find answers. And he wants to make it easy for you. He has...more

Dr. Beer is very knowledgeable and caring - overall a wonderful doctor. However, working with his stuff was a very bad experience - lots of mix-ups, no follow up, rudeness and totally uncaring. I had to waste a lot of time calling and calling and calling - not even once the office called me back!
