The Power of Personalized healthcare

Are you tired of receiving subpar healthcare? Are you worried because it feels like your physician is more interested in prescribing medication than in your actual health? Do you want more from your healthcare than rushed doctors’ appointments?

We know that a life of great health and wellbeing requires a medical approach that’s personalized and tailored to meet the exact need of every patient, and because of this, we have created a health care system that focuses on treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. We go to great lengths to get to know you personally. We ask the right questions, conduct cutting-edge testing and most importantly we truly listen. By fully exploring your past and present health, nutrition, activity and lifestyle and utilizing conventional and innovative lab testing, Dr. Dersam will explore the root cause of your health concerns.

Whether you have a chronic condition or are looking to become a better version of yourself, we will support you in pursuing your health goals. Together, we’ll work with you to develop strategies for achieving total health and wellbeing including balancing your nutrition, digestion, activity, stress, sleep, hormones and adjust medications as needed.

In order to ensure that my patients receive care that’ll truly work for them, I start by taking a close look at your medical history and discussing your daily routines before coming up with a holistic health care plan. I find that by doing this, I am able to fully address your health concerns today and reduce your risks for health problems in the future.
