Functional Medicine in Nantucket, MA

Many times, patients feel like they are treated like everyone else. Given the same prescription for a diagnosis that thousands of others share. Doctors far too often treat the patient’s symptoms rather than the person.

This breath of fresh air approach differs from conventional medical treatment. Many patients are used to feeling like just a number or as if they have to ask their doctor what is allowed and what isn’t allowed. Functional medicine helps you approach your symptoms with resources, education, and support, and tools needed to improve your health. This type of health practice incorporates physical, mental, and spiritual health elements. Dr. Williams and her staff help evaluate your health history, diet and lifestyle choices, and some key mind-body components that drive your overall health getting at the core causes of your symptoms.

 

Our personalized approach starts with a consultation to go over previous health histories such as lab results, tests, and genetic predispositions. Dr. Williams may suggest additional labs and testing to better understand your health needs. After discussing your health desires Dr. Williams develops an individualized care plan with you. She may suggest different forms of treatment. The treatment plan may include a specific diet, exercise regimen, supplements, and other resources to improve your health.
