Welcome to Coastal Functional Medicine
You will experience a different level of care at Coastal Functional Medicine.
Deciding to join us at Coastal FM is a big decision in terms of investment. There are three significant investments you will need to make if you desire to change the health condition you’ve been facing.
We don’t take insurance and we recognize the challenge this may create. However, we also understand the frustration you may have when your current state of health is creating havoc in your life - preventing you from feeling like your best self. This investment is in your long-term well-being.
2. Your Level Of Commitment
We understand why new patients may have concerns about feeling restricted by a cleansing diet or following a specific nutritional strategy to eliminate possible triggers to your condition. Yet, lifestyle changes including nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management are the foundations of life-long health and wellbeing. Making a commitment and sticking to the plan is to your advantage. I am committed to your success just as passionately.
3. Your Time
You didn’t get here overnight and your conditions will likely not disappear overnight. Healing will require patience and commitment on your part. Most of our patients begin feeling better in a relatively short amount of time but everyone is different.
As a functional medicine practitioner and a Board-certified Family physician, Dr. Fleming blends traditional allopathic medical practices with an integrative, holistic approach, to give you the highest level of personalized health care.
CFM is a Telemedicine Practice and all visits are virtual or by phone. If you are interested in becoming a patient, please call our office directly at (707) 440-9898 OR schedule a free phone consult by completing our assessment.
