Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is a science-based healthcare approach that assesses and treats underlying causes of illness through individually tailored therapies to restore health and improve function.

Your functional medicine visit will be with Heather Ratliff, RN, BSN who has had completed her training through the Institute for Functional Medicine.  The majority of the first visit with her will be spent reviewing the patient’s history and present concerns.  Treatment options will be discussed and if appropriate, the patient will be referred to Dr. Betten or another provider.
