Integrative and Functional Medicine is the medicine that connects the dots between all the things that are going wrong with our biology. It’s a medicine of why? In Integrative and Functional medicine, the doctor aims at treating the patient as a whole person and instead of numbing the symptoms with medications, the doctor finds out the root cause of the problem through advanced scientific testing and biomarkers using specialized labs.

The important thing to remember is that we do believe in the science and utility of Medications and vaccines for the prevention and treatment of various infections, including Influenza and COVID Vaccines.

Integrative medicine combines the modern conventional medical approach with a focus on lifestyle.

Yes, we are accepting new patients.

Dr. Azam MD will not stop any of your regular medications. Her goal would be to find the root cause of your condition, and formulate a plan which is based on the root cause. Once you have started feeling better and the symptoms are improving, the medications can be eventually stopped by your primary care doctor
Dr. Rubina Azam MD will be happy to work with your doctor to achieve optimum health for you and your family.

Dr.Rubina Azam MD is a conventionally trained MD as well as with additional Fellowship training and Board Certification in the field of Integrative and Holistic Medicine. She believes in the careful use of Medications as needed while working on lifestyle and root cause of the condition.

There has been a recent rise in chronic diseases in population including but not limited to Autoimmune diseases, ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Thyroid problems, Fatigue cancer, Allergies, Asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Digestive diseases, IBS and IBD and several other conditions.
We will focus on finding out the cause for these acute and recurrent symptoms. In most cases the recurrence of any symptoms, whether its allergies, chronic infections, weak immune system or cardiometabolic syndrome can be a sign of something more significant at the cell level which can be diagnosed and treated in a gentler fashion.

Functional Medicine revolves around lifestyles and the personal involvement of patients in their healing Journey.  The functional medicine approach requires a patient’s commitment and dedication. The Functional Medicine Journey is different for each individual depending upon how long their body has been going through the illness and a state of imbalance. Every patient’s Genetics, Biochemistry, and environment are different and therefore every patient’s care plan, time, and response to treatment are different.  It can sometimes take years for the body to fully heal. We can not expect the body to immediately heal and reset to where it is supposed to be in a few days or weeks. However, most patients start feeling better within days and if they continue to adhere to their Functional Medicine Physicians’ recommendations and lifestyle, they will eventually see a significant difference.

The first visit is the visit when we will review your detailed medical history, medications, life style, genetic and environmental factors, and your symptoms. Based on this information, Dr Rubina will present her assessment and plan to you. Please know that no labs will be ordered during this visit and no medications/supplements  will be prescribed during this visit either. This will be an opportunity for both you and Dr Rubina to decide if signing up for a membership plan with  our practice be the best option to start your functional medicine Journey with Dr Rubina.

At this time, we are offering membership packages to all our patients after the initial consultation. The membership package will determine the number of follow up visits and other options.

Once you have signed up for the membership package, you will have the option to email or even directly text Dr Rubina directly on her cell phone(depending upon the type of package you choose). This will give you direct access to the doctor and a peace of mind that you do not have to wait for days to get the simple answers from your doctor.
