Functional Medicine

“Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.”

-The Institute for Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is individualized, patient-centered medicine. We start with a comprehensive history, analyzing all the stones along the path that have led you to where you are in your health journey today. Then we turn each of those stones over, looking for the triggers that have you feeling the way you are. After putting all of your unique history together, I use advanced laboratory testing to customize your plan to you.

Dr. Surprenant completed additional training through the Institute for Functional Medicine, becoming one of the few naturopathic doctors to earn the letters IFMCP.
