Information for Patients

From the practitioner: About My Practice

At Fortitude Functional Medicine, it is our passion to empower you with the tools you need to find the best version of yourself through improved health and wellness. We are women-owned and operated but we see patients of all race, gender, class, and creed. We allow group visits so bring your family, friends, and your furry friends too! We focus first on bettering your health through diet and lifestyle change but when necessary, we prescribe supplements and medications that specifically impact dysfunction in the biochemical pathways that are at the root cause of of your disease. We don't currently take insurance though we are happy to supply you with a superbill for you to send to your insurance company for reimbursement.

From the practitioner: What Patients Can Expect

At Fortitude Functional Medicine, we focus on root cause factors. Our initial intake lasts 60-90 minutes where we will go through the entire timeline of your life and health to determine root cause factors. We will support you throughout your journey through intensive one-on-one appointments with a physician, nutritionist, and coach.
