Functional medicine is a patient-centered approach that considers lifestyle, genetics, physiology and history in determining an individualized health plan. Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices of laboratory testing and medications with complementary or alternative approaches such as nutrition, vitamins and botanicals. There is a focus on prevention and a balanced approach to diet and activity. After a functional medicine consultation, a patient may leave with prescriptions for medications, recommendations for supplements, and an activity plan to optimize sleep, exercise and manage stress. More information regarding Functional Medicine is available at www.functionalmedicine.org/about/whatisfm/.

Dr. Mosher does not participate in any insurance networks so patients are responsible for the fee. He can not currently accept Medicare patients.
