Optimize Your Health and Wellness

Functional medicine is a science-based health care approach that individualizes unique diagnostic and treatment programs to empower you to take control of your health and wellness. 

At Catholic Health's Center for Functional Medicine and Optimal Health in East Hills, NY, our dedicated care team will work with you and your health care provider to develop interventions in order to optimize your health. We create a personalized assessment of your overall health, taking into account how your lifestyle, environment and genetic predisposition to disease may affect disease prevention and management.  

Our treatment options address the root cause of illness rather than only treating the symptoms.

    • Personalized. Tailored treatment plans based on your individual genetic and environmental factors. 
    • Predictive. Health strategies to minimize potential health risks based on genetics or other factors. 
    • Preventive. Promotes a proactive and functional approach to treating illness before the onset.
