Functional Medicine

What is Functional Medicine?

Our functional medicine model is an individualized, science-based approach that empowers patients to work together with Dr Yazbek to address the underlying causes of their dysregulated health and find the most efficient and appropriate ways of promoting optimal robustness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and then leverages that data to curate personalized treatment plans that lead to improved outcomes. Coupled with a complete functional neurological examination, this provides an unparalleled way of arriving at a truer, evidence-based differential diagnosis.


We love this eloquent systems biology approach which looks at the person as a whole, complex being and treats them as such. What we see in you as our patient is a kaleidoscope of scope with a plethora of opportunities to affect positive change.

It’s all about YOU and how we can generate the BEST version of you!

The patients that thrive within our practice have:

  • The desire to learn and be open to concepts they may not have encountered in the conventional medical model
  • The willingness to take control of and play an active role in their health journey
  • The drive and support to implement changes in their lifestyle which will facilitate crucial healing processes
  • The desire to not have to rely on unnecessary or overprescribed medications

The graphic below details a crucial concept – a diagnosis can be the result of more than one cause. For example, depression can be caused by many different factors, including inflammation. Likewise, a cause such as inflammation may lead to a number of different diagnoses, including depression. The precise manifestation of each cause depends on the individual’s genes, environment, and lifestyle, and only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefit beyond symptom suppression.
