How do you choose your primary care doctor? Referral by friends or picked off an insurance list. Some young adults may not really care who they see - as long as they get their “annual exam” and have someone write for an antibiotic when they get sick. Others with chronic health conditions visit their doctor to refill their multiple medications which help control their disease symptoms.
But is this enough? Could this interaction between your doctor be far more beneficial in helping you maximize your health instead of just mitigating a disease process?
How much does your doctor really know about you and your true health status? What can the typical 15-minute visit accomplish in answering your health questions or addressing your ongoing medical concerns?
Is there an alternative, more comprehensive approach that aims to prevent future health conditions as well as determine the underlying cause(s) of your recurrent problems?
YES! It’s called Functional Medicine and here are 5 reasons why you should schedule this type of visit today.
