The Clark’s physicians may offer an integrative medicine approach on a consultative basis to help treat chronic disease. Integrative medicine reviews the lifestyle habits of a patient, including diet and exercise. Alternative treatment modalities may be recommended, such as yoga or acupuncture.
During your primary care appointment, our physicians can offer a functional medicine approach on a consultative basis. Functional medicine is a more hands-on approach to your overall wellness, striving to determine the root cause of disease. Functional medicine sessions are longer than a standard appointment, as practitioners review a patient’s history and genetic makeup to determine a cause, offering alternative testing and treatment modalities.
