Our primary goal is to provide medical consulting services from a more comprehensive Functional Medicine perspective. It is not our intention to be in competition with other medical providers, but to compliment previous and ongoing care. We will capitalize on our 35 years of experience in primary care family medicine as we use the science based Functional Medicine approach to more comprehensive evaluations of one’s health and disease risk.
Our Functional Medicine philosophy towards health and medical care is that the whole person must be addressed if we are to maximize the goal of excellent outcomes. This means that appropriate attention must be given to all of the primary components of our health and wellness, i.e. spiritual health, physical health, mental/emotional health, and relational health. When there is disease or dysfunction in one of these components, there will be negative consequences affecting the other areas. When one is experiencing wellness and good health in one or more of the components, the reverse is true.
This Functional Medicine doctor’s office is intended to be a place of hope, healing and wholeness regardless of race, gender, spiritual orientation, and lifestyle.
We acknowledge that healing and wholeness is God’s will. We adhere to the belief that all healing, even miracles, are from God and are accessible through the integration of excellent medical care with His word, prayer, and the present day workings of the Spirit of God.
In this context the following services are offered in our Maine Functional Medicine office:
