A doctor of integrative medicine is a physician who practices functional and holistic medicine. Doctors of integrative medicine believe in a whole person or systems approach to managing chronic ailments and preventing illnesses. Their main focus is on addressing the underlying root cause of disease instead of just covering up symptoms.
Additionally, they believe patients ought to be educated about their conditions and have a better comprehension of their treatment plans and the motive governing the treatment plan. This is why longer (half an hour) office visits with our doctors are routine at Robinhood Integrative Health (RIH).
We have a great, well-trained team of healthcare providers that will do their best so you can experience health as it ought to be.
Honestly, not much. Functional and integrative medicine can pretty much be used interchangeably.
They both strive to treat an individual as a whole and concentrate on developing personalized treatments tailored to treat and cure underlying causes of disease. They also attempt to restore people to an optimal state of wellness not just an absence of disease.
Our providers have training in both Integrative and Functional Medicine and continue to learn. Our providers pursue ongoing medical education about various topics including hormones, thyroid dysfunction, anti-aging, chronic infections, Lyme disease, mold toxicity, and IV therapies. We strive to get better and more comprehensive every year.
