At Steinmetz Center, our board-certified family practice physicians are not focused on just treating disease; we treat the whole patient.

Our physicians listen closely to patients during new visits that typically last an hour, asking questions about all aspects of their lifestyle to create a complete picture. Our integrative approach combines conventional and complementary therapies to facilitate healing for acute and chronic conditions.

Since 1997, Steinmetz Center for Integrative Medicine has emphasized nutrition, exercise and lifestyle adjustments for optimum health. We use approaches that are backed by proven research and studies.

Looking for Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine Certified PractitionerFunctional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
