Functional Medicine Q&A

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a biology-based approach to health care that focuses on identifying the root cause of underlying health conditions rather than just treating symptoms.

Bridge City Family Medical Clinic provides comprehensive functional medicine services for the whole family. The medical team takes an integrative approach to diagnosing and managing a range of acute and chronic health conditions.

The providers offer in-office diagnostic testing services and customize a care plan to address your health challenges. They can also provide house call services in the comfort of your own home if you’re unable to travel to the office.

When should I consider a functional medicine consultation?

You might benefit from the functional medicine services available at Bridge City Family Medical Clinic if you have an existing acute or chronic health issue that’s difficult to manage.

The providers offer on-site bloodwork and other diagnostic testing to identify underlying issues that affect your physical and mental health.
