Is it worth it to see a Functional Medicine doctor?

Functional medicine practitioner spends a lot more time with you than a conventional provider. You can also expect to do a lot of talking, as a large part of functional medicine is exploring your detailed personal and family history, the circumstances around your first symptoms, and the experiences you may have had with other healthcare providers. Through this systematic method functional medicine practitioners uncover the underlying causes of your health problems through careful history taking, physical examination, and laboratory testing.
By investing this time and effort up front, many people find that working with a functional medicine provider helps them get to the bottom of perplexing problems that have eluded other clinicians for years.
