We brought our daughter to see Dr. Saxena for an autoimmune condition. Other doctors only prescribed drugs for her disease. Dr. Saxena gave us other tools to use to help reduce her symptoms. The tools included changing her diet and reducing her stress. Our family has been blessed by Dr. Saxena and...Read More

I thought seeing a functional MD would...Read More

She was the only physician who provided an alternative to a nebulizer (recommended by 3 pediatricians) to treat my son's chronic cough when he was five. She looked beyond the surface condition to help him by testing for...Read More
