About Alice Prescott Sullivan, DO

Dr. Prescott started her journey in Functional Medicine in 2005 during family practice residency.   She has since been applying it to varied settings including healthcare for the homeless, the Indian Health Service, and abroad in New Zealand.

For the past seven years, she has focused her practice to patients with chronic illness, especially those without a clear diagnosis, and those who cannot tolerate conventional treatment options.  She has particular interest in chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, chronic infection, mast cell activation syndrome, and multiple-chemical sensitivity.

Dr. Sullivan is very knowledgeable in a wide range of areas, compassionate, listens and interacts well, and is helpful with trying or suggesting solutions that are "outside the box" of traditional medicine in this country, with considerable success! We hope the clinic values her opinions, and supports her work (and that of all the functional medicine providers). I have gone from very significant disability to being able to do a lot since seeing them, and we are still in progress.

Dr. Alice Sullivan really keeps up on research and is by far the most knowledgeable doctor I have ever seen. She is one of very few doctors who has the ability to determine possible causes of problems. She will never give you the old "I have no idea what's wrong so it must be in your head" excuse.

Reviewed on Jan 29, 2020

When provider first arrived had the wrong information/patients file pulled up. I felt like I had to go over everything again I had already put in detail in Living Matrix. Felt like the time spent on that took away a more detailed look at the issues I came all the way to Clinic for. No real solutions/treatment given at this time. Just as bunch of testing a lot of which I have already had done in past in trying to determine root causes. Also, a # of times I felt the conversation got off-track. However, I did feel the Dr was knowledgeable and had a good report with her.

Reviewed on Jan 13, 2020

Dr. Sullivan is a very through Dr. I think if she had more time in appt. with you she would be a even better Dr. she does not have the time needed in a 30 min. appt. to explain and cover everything with the complexity of the issues that we come with to the functional unit especially most of us traveling to get there! Hopefully something for you all to think about if you read this !

Dr. Prescott is an incredible doctor and I am so grateful for her. She is a huge factor in my improvement and being able to live a normal life once again. she is brilliant, thoughtful, empowering, and genuinely cares. she I appreciate how she takes the time to explain the more in-depth science behind treatments, test results, possible diagnosis. it makes me more inclined to dig deep myself and take ownership of my health and care.I wish she had more freedom and was able to provide more care instead of having me go elsewhere (because cleveland clinic doesn't provide that treatment or she can't test for that). her suggestions have turned out immensely helpful and important, but puts a lot more work on the patient.
