In an era where the one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare has become the standard, many patients are seeking healthcare providers that treat them as individuals rather than just another case. Our expert team of medical professionals are setting themselves apart by embracing a holistic and patient-centered approach to healing. From connecting with patients and thorough testing, to personalizing care and growing together, the Vitality difference is tangible.
One of the fundamental principles of functional medicine is the commitment to finding the root cause of an individual's health issues. Unlike conventional medicine, which often focuses on symptom management, Vitality practitioners dedicate their time and expertise to understanding the underlying factors that contribute to a patient's health problems. By identifying and addressing these root causes, they aim to facilitate long-lasting healing rather than merely alleviating symptoms temporarily.
Functional medicine practitioners understand that each patient is unique. Our providers take the time to listen to patients' stories, assess their individual genetics, lifestyle, and environmental factors, and then create personalized treatment plans. This tailored approach ensures that patients receive care that is specifically suited to their needs, promoting better, sustainable outcomes and outstanding patient satisfaction.
If you’ve ever been questioned by a medical provider for doing your own research, that should be a BIG red flag 🚩🚩🚩. Vitality medical providers emphasize collaboration between the patient and the healthcare team. We believe in educating patients about their health conditions, treatment options, and lifestyle changes needed for optimal well-being. This shared decision-making approach fosters a sense of empowerment and responsibility in patients, encouraging them to actively participate in their healing journey.
Emphasis on Prevention
While traditional medicine often reacts to illness when it arises, Vitality places a strong emphasis on prevention. Our practitioners aim to identify potential health risks and implement strategies to prevent illness before it manifests. This proactive approach aligns with the adage that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
Functional medicine practitioners are open to a wide range of therapeutic modalities, including conventional and alternative treatments. They integrate the best of both worlds to offer comprehensive care. Whether it's dietary changes, supplements, lifestyle modifications, or cutting-edge therapies, Vitality practitioners tailor treatment plans to suit each of our patient's needs.
Functional medicine is a dynamic field that continues to evolve. Practitioners at Vitality are committed to lifelong learning and staying up-to-date with the latest research and developments in healthcare. This dedication ensures that our patients receive the most current and effective treatments available.
Time and Attention
In contrast to rushed appointments typical of conventional healthcare settings, at Vitality you'll find that our providers allocate more time to each patient. This allows for in-depth discussions, thorough evaluations, and the development of a strong relationship built on trust. Patients often feel heard and valued, which can be a powerful factor in the healing process.
Our practitioners are setting themselves apart from traditional healthcare providers by embracing a holistic, patient-centered approach. Their dedication to uncovering root causes, personalized care, collaboration, prevention, and integrative therapies offers patients a refreshing alternative in the world of healthcare. As the demand for personalized and proactive healthcare continues to rise, functional medicine is poised to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of medicine.
As Dr. McRae loves to say, “wellness is a verb.” At Vitality, our providers first dig deep to understand each patient’s needs, then educate and empower our patients to make sustainable changes in order to live in such a way that wellness is inevitable.
