You will experience a different level of care at Atlanta Functional Medicine. As practitioners of Functional Medicine, we consider the patient as a whole and not just a set of symptoms. Our focus is on identifying and treating the underlying factors that cause pain, illness, and chronic disease, other than simply masking the symptoms.
What To Expect
Your first visit to Atlanta Functional Medicine will involve a consultation with one of our board certified practitioners: Elizabeth Board M.D., Linda Lee M.D., Ashley Walker PA-C. During this assessment, we will listen to your health history, take a physical examination, and determine what specialized testing and/or supplementation is needed.
We will consider multiple factors including:
- Environmental Influences
Diet, physical activity, toxic exposures, traumas
- Biological & Genetic Influences
Regulation of hormones, digestion and absorption of nutrients, allergies and food allergies, immune system function, and inflammatory responses
- Mind-Body Connection
Psychological, spiritual, and social factors that influence your health and energy
Based on our consultation and test results, we will create a personalized treatment plan that puts you in control and teaches the skills needed to prevent disease and maintain optimal health. Your treatment plan will be tailored with ongoing modifications to meet your changing needs.
