Functional Medicine views health in the context of you as a whole person, not just in terms of your symptoms. Dr. Brodsky utilizes this philosophy as he evaluates and treats illness by moving upstream, looking for the root cause. Often poor health is the result of lifestyle, poor diet, lack of fitness, imbalances, hidden infections, allergies, emotional problems, or environmental factors. In addition to improving health and vitality, the focus is on reducing cardiovascular risk, cancer, and dementia. This is accomplished through both conventional and non-conventional testing and therapies. Special attention is given to family history and genetic testing when appropriate.

Patients become active participants in the development of their treatment plan. You and the physician collaborate in finding a treatment strategy that puts you in charge of improving your health. This is one of the most important tenets of a functional medicine/holistic practice.

Our practice routinely schedules longer appointments, often 60-90 minutes. The doctor values accessibility, and as such, is available to patients when the office is closed, by cellphone or email.

Most practices that provide this level of "concierge" service will charge an upfront or retainer fee. This office does not. The patient is only charged for services rendered.
