What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a holistic approach to health and disease. Instead of treating symptoms, functional medicine practitioners find and treat the root cause of your health problem, fixing the problem entirely.

FIX Medical Group is a multispecialty practice that includes health providers from many areas of medicine. Unlike other group medical practices, the FIX Medical Group doctors behave like coaches rather than doctors.

Instead of prescribing medications to treat your disease, they provide the tools and support you need to take care of your health.

  • Weight management

What happens during a functional medicine evaluation?

Your functional medicine evaluation at FIX Medical Group is a thorough exam that helps the team fully understand your health concerns and goals. It’s an opportunity for them to assess your general health.

Your provider asks detailed questions about your daily routine, including what you eat, your usual exercise habits, your work and home life, and your stressors. They complete a physical exam and run advanced diagnostic lab tests to determine the root cause of your health condition.

Testing checks for nutrient deficiencies, allergies, food sensitivities, and hormonal imbalances. They also run lab tests to assess your general health and screen for diseases.

What are functional medicine treatments?
