Learn How We Work With Patients

All of the clinicians at CCFM embrace a functional medicine approach, combined with an emphasis on a nutrient-dense, whole-foods diet and focus on lifestyle factors such as stress management, sleep and physical activity.

Within this framework, there are some differences in how each clinician structures their work with patients. Please use the links below to learn more about how each CCFM clinician works with patients.
