Welcome to the Northern Illinois Center for Functional Medicine, where the goal is lifelong health and vitality. Traditional Medicine focuses on the presence or absence of disease, but Functional Medicine focuses on the patient, with the goal of vitality, which is so much more than not having a disease!
I established Northern Illinois Center for Functional Medicine to practice personalized, cutting-edge medicine. This is truly healing medicine, treating the person as a whole, not a collection of organs divided up by medical specialists.
I practice evidence-based medicine, incorporating the best diagnostic tools from conventional medicine along with emerging technologies that help me identify the root-cause of an illness. I treat the whole person, not just the symptoms.
Each person is unique, as is their path to healing and optimal wellness. I am truly honored to share the journey.
