What Are Some Examples of Functional Doctors?

Doctors who practice functional medicine practice in all specialties, from dermatology and cardiology to family medicine and pediatrics. A list of doctors certified in the practice of functional medicine by the Institute for Functional Medicine is available online at FunctionalMedicine.org.

Functional medicine is a medical approach and philosophy that seeks to treat individual patients rather than illnesses. Doctors that practice functional medicine attempt to address the root causes of a disease by focusing on the patient instead of the disease, the person as a whole instead of a particular body part or organ system, and how the person interacts with and adapts to the environment, genetics and lifestyle.
