Functional Medicine Consultations
Already have a primary care doctor or a specialist but want to get a bigger integrative view using the functional medicine systems based approach?
Consult with our physicians in sickness and in health. Receive alternative diagnostic and treatment options while looking at a specific issue, the interrelationship of a variety of health concerns or just to stay healthy.
The physicians at Family to Family offer holistic, integrative functional medicine consultations for men and women of all ages and stages of life. They are each trained in Family Medicine, Integrative Holistic Medicine, and certified in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine. Our doctors also effectively collaborate and coordinate with your other health care providers.
We offer this unique style of health care in Asheville, North Carolina. Our patients live locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Initial visits must be in person and are done at our office that makes you feel right at home. Follow up visits can be done via phone or video conference for those living out of town.
Initial consults are 2 hours for adults and 1 1/2 hours for children. Follow up visits are 30-60 minutes unless more time needs to be arranged.
We engage in a therapeutic relationship. Based in the holistic and integrative principles of functional medicine, our approach to your care is patient-centered rather than disease-oriented, supporting the unique expression of health and vitality for you.
Our physicians take a holistic approach to health challenges such as autoimmune disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, dementia, irritable bowel syndrome, hormonal imbalance, fatigue, asthma, allergies, depression and anxiety. These are just a few of the specialized topics that we effectively guide our patients through using the systems-based, functional medicine approach. We call upon many tools such as functional and diagnostic lab testing, lifestyle and nutritional counseling, food as medicine, individualized vitamins, herbs and supplements, working with stress response and emotional healing.
We assist you in identifying the root of imbalance and effectively guide you towards a more vibrant, nourished and healthy you.

DR. HYMAN: gives an inspiring interview
“I can’t imagine being without the support of Family to Family. No question or concern is insignificant or silly to our doctors. If it matters to us, it matters to them. They bring compassion and understanding back to the field of medicine, a field that should be synonymous with care taking yet most often is not. Their enthusiasm for staying up to date with the current research paired with an equal desire to truly connect with their patients is something I’ve never found elsewhere. Asheville is blessed to have these folks.”
