Dr. Gupta at Functional Medicine has provided our daughter excellent care. We have had issues in past regarding patient access to quality care for our daughter at primary care here. We utilize UH for our children's primary health care. We are grateful for Functional Medicine and Dr. Gupta's help at Cleveland Clinic.

My husband and I appreciated Dr. Gupta's kind concern and warm matter. He took time to listen, explained and answered any questions we had.

Reviewed on Dec 20, 2019

Dr Gupta was clearly very knowledgable. He understood my concern of dealing with multiple problems concurrently. He kept focus on the issues at hand and didn't waste time in useless chit chat which I very much appreciated. He was very straight forward, and clear in his way of speaking.

I don't feel that my personal needs were addressed. It seems like you have a first appointment protocol and you do the same thing for every patient that comes in there rather than looking at the individual. You take a bunch of blood work, you give a standard elimination diet without looking at the needs of the individual, and suggest a standard set of behavior modifications without even asking if the patient already does those things. There was such an emphasis on submitting the living matrix ahead of time so the doctor can have time to review it, yet I do not believe the doctor looked at it at all. He certainly asked questions that were already answered. And he would not take the time to listen to additional detail or explanations. I wanted to explain what I have tried and what has worked and what hasn't worked so far so we can personalize my treatment (as your advertising says). This did not happen. If you would actually do what you say in your literature, the functional medicine clinic would be a wonderful place. I want to say that Dr. Gupta is my biggest complaint because of his poor listening skills and lack of attention to detail as well as lack of concern for the comfort of the patient. He was dismissive. The other professionals, (dietitian, health coach, phlebotomist), were much better, but still the overall treatment was NOT personalized or individualized.

I have already been referring Dr. Gupta to everyone! My favorite part of the visit was his explaining each and every lab result that I had even though it was years ago. The time he took to explain each lab and answer all of my questions was exemplary for a physician. Dr. Gupta didn't mind my request that the labs be printed so I could look at each one as he reviewed the results. I am 54 and feel this is one of the best experiences I've ever had. I have a follow-up appointment and am actually excited with anticipation about this appointment.

This was my first visit with Dr. Gupta. I must say that I have never seen a physician who had such little respect for a patient. I've seen both ends of the spectrum as I have witnessed doctors over the years for myself and as I've been a registered nurse for 30 years, I've seen how patients are communicated with. Dr. Gupta had no time to address my concerns. Wether working as a nursing professional or as a patient myself, I have never been treated with so little respect. I gave up trying to ask him questions when he stood up and said I could make another appointment in 3 months or so. Needless to say, I do not plan to see him again.

Very good and caring doctor

Reviewed on Apr 23, 2019

It felt like a very impersonal visit. He told me I tested positive for SIBO and then gave me a list of supplements to buy. He did not explain the condition, or the treatment. The whole reason I chose functional medicine is because I thought the doctors would be more interested in my overall health and getting to the root cause of my issues. I'm pretty sure that SIBO is not the root cause, but there was no discussion about that. Both of the doctors that I have seen at the functional medicine department have been disappointing. They did not ask questions about my symptoms and/or experiences. They did not treat me like a person at all. They look at one test result, and then hand me a list of expensive supplements to try.. no discussion at all. I will probably not be returning.

I expected the provider to go over my heath issues with me and discuss possible causes and links between them. Everything was very cookie cutter and was not individualized .

Dr. Gupta spent an hour with me listening for the most part and truly engaged with my life history. He was very understanding and helpful when I had questions and offered answers and guidance. He seems to truly want to help me get to a healthier place and I am very thankful!! My husband was present and I liked how Dr. Gupta talked with me first before bringing my husband into the conversation about how I was feeling.

There was quite a delay from the time we were put in the exam room until the time the doctor entered the room.
