"Your current state is not the end to a life of health. We believe that YOU WERE MADE FOR MORE."

At Roots Integrated Care we know you are the kind of person who wants to be proactive about your health.  The problem is that you've been to multiple doctors without any answers to why have "normal" labs but don't feel "normal",  don't fit in your clothes, and feel drained of energy. As a dedicated practitioner, I see the frustration with your health concerns. Empty answers, multiple medications, debilitating symptoms should not be an option. 


That's why we use a model of healthcare that has successfully treated thousands of patients. We see symptoms like digestive complaints, weight gain, blood sugar issues, hormonal imbalances, and low energy as a cause to an underlying problem. 


We offer telemedicine medical visits.  Here's how it works: schedule an initial consultation, get your personalized treatment, and follow up on your success. So book a free trial appointment or become a patient today, so you can stop suffering and start living life again. 

We are here to create a world-class patient experience to solve your unresolved health issues. You deserve answers because you were made for more.

Our Solution

Our Approach to Medicine

Customized Treatment

The greatest advantage of Functional Medicine is the deeply personalized care you will experience. We understand that each patient has their own story and the same disease in two different patients may have different causes.


Let's make getting health care easier! We are now offering telemedicine. This makes our functional medicine care even more affordable and accessible. 

Root Cause Analysis

We work to identify and treat the root cause of your symptoms rather than masking them with medications. By focusing on the root cause, we not only eliminate your symptoms but also fix the underlying problem. This is necessary to experience optimal health.

Patient-Centered Care

We understand that the power to heal lies with the patient. We empower our patients with the tools and resources to heal themselves through an empathetic patient-clinician relationship.

Nutrition and Lifestyle-Based Care

Part of the customized care approach is helping you with implementing nutrition, lifestyle, sleep, stress management, and exercise habits into your daily routine. As a patient of Roots Integrated Care, we will guide you through applicable lifestyle practices to enhance your quality of life and your health.


We use cost-effective labs and tests to understand what's causing your symptoms and identify the root cause of your health concerns.  By taking advantage of the latest medical advances, we can identify imbalances in your body and understand how to personalize your treatment.
