Dr_Tapscott_functional_medicine_doctorArea of Specialty: Functional Medicine, Adult Holistic Primary Care and Obesity Medicine

Practice Philosophy: :“Find the root cause... 

It’s not enough to diagnose a disease or to treat a symptom without delving deeper and appreciating the processes that underlie the condition.  With any ailment, I always ask myself the question - why?

My patients’ “true health” is much more than “your labs are within normal limits”.  Testing beyond the conventional labs helps to address nutritional, metabolic, genetic, and hormonal optimization.

Everyone has a life story that influences their health. Through personalized treatment in partnership with the patient, we get to the root cause and begin the journey towards long term health and wellness.”
