A Different Philosophy of Health Care
If you haven’t already heard about functional medicine, it’s because the traditional disease-drug model still dominates the American medical landscape. Dr. Julia Ward became interested in functional medicine when she was looking into bioidentical hormones for herself. She discovered that this newer approach to treating patients is much more holistic and healthy than the traditional disease-drug model we’ve become accustomed to.
After treating patients for two decades as a primary-care physician, Dr. Ward recognized her patients’ growing need for more holistic, more personalized, more attentive care as they aged. She recognized that many of their health complaints were rooted in hormonal imbalances, inflammatory diets, poor intestinal health, environmental toxicity and lifestyle-related problems.
Many patients are also concerned about their appearance as they age, so Dr. Ward offers aesthetic services such as Botox® and Dysport®, fillers such as Voluma® and Restylane®, SkinPen® microneedling treatments, chemical peels and noninvasive laser fat reduction. Her goal is to give her patients healthier, more youthful looks because Dr. Ward loves helping people look and feel their best.
