Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rachman "Functional

While symptoms can tell us a lot about your health condition, they don't tell us the whole story. We explore something deeper than your symptoms- central cause. We assure that the underlying, root cause of your health condition is uncovered and directly addressed. We are committed to getting to the functional imbalance at the root of your health concerns.


You are more like a snowflake than a widget- you are a unique collection of genes, lifestyle and vitality. We do not support mass-media, cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approaches to your health. We appreciate that you have a unique physiology and we work hard to match your therapeutic regimen to your unique genes, distinctive constitution and specific health imbalance.


We recognize that in healing, small things matter. We utilize advanced laboratory diagnostics and comprehensive statistical analysis to monitor very subtle changes in your physiology- continually refining our therapeutic approach."
