I’m Dr. Jyoti Mathews, a board certified family physician practicing nutritional and lifestyle medicine. Having worked in settings including an urgent care center and a hospital clinic, I realized that many of my patients needed more than I could offer them in a conventional medical setting. This led to my search for alternative approaches to practicing medicine and helping patients achieve optimal health.

I spent time training with and working for Dr. Joel Fuhrman, a renowned family physician specializing in nutritional medicine. I am a certified functional medicine physician through the Institute for Functional Medicine.

What I love about Functional Medicine is that it allows me to work with patients to achieve their best possible state of health using the least amount of pharmaceutical and surgical interventions. It is totally personalized, taking into account each individual’s genetic background, lifestyle, and environmental exposures.

This means I spend a lot more quality time with my patients than a conventional practitioner. To be honest, 15 minutes is not long enough to get to the bottom of what’s causing your illness or imbalance and create a tailored treatment plan. In my Functional Medicine practice, I take the time to truly listen to you and partner with you on your journey to health.
