Shared Medical Appointments

Shared Medical Appointments (SMA) are a unique appointment held in the company of others who share similar health concerns. Most SMAs (excluding Acupuncture) are held over a series of appointments, held each week at a specific time with the same group of patients. These appointments will teach you how to improve your health and well-being through lifestyle changes.

These appointments offer you extended time with medical practitioners and lifestyle medicine providers, in the company of others who share similar health concerns. More information is often exchanged during a SMA than in an individual office visit as participants learn from each other’s comments and interactions with experts. SMA participants also benefit from the support of others in the group. Shared medical appointments are covered by most insurance plans. Participants are responsible for insurance copays at each appointment and depending on the program, a one-time charge for program materials.

Check back for updates about upcoming appointments.

Behavioral Health Appointments

At the Center for Functional Medicine we recognize that the mind-body connection is real. When we are faced with emotional challenges, our physical well-being can be compromised. This is why we offer Behavioral Health Therapy as part of our overall suite of services.

Our goal is to help patients enhance their life skills so they can build resilience, improve wellness and optimize health. Behavioral Health Therapy can help you discover how emotional issues may be keeping you from feeling your best.

Functioning for Life Series

Functioning for Life is a robust 10-week program of shared medical appointments designed for new patients to the Center for Functional Medicine. Disease-specific programs have been developed and patients can select the series that is right for them. These group appointments introduce patients to the functional medicine approach and provide the necessary laboratory testing, health information and dietary guidance needed to achieve optimal wellness.

Shared Nutrition Appointments

SNAs are a series of uniquely designed nutrition appointments. They offer you extended time with the functional medicine team in the company of others who share similar health concerns.

One of the benefits of SNAs is that more information is exchanged in this type of visit as employees learn from others’ comments and interactions and benefit from the group support.
