Bruce L. Feldman, MD Functional Medicine
Dr. Bruce Feldman has had an extremely diverse experience in the field of medicine. From PCP To Assistant Chairman of Medicine to his practice of Concierge Medicine, all have formed his mission today. Because of his 28 years interfacing with hundreds of medical professionals and thousands of patients, Dr. Feldman maintains his mission to profoundly change the way we deliver healthcare in the country. Using cutting edge technologies in combination with Western, Functional and Eastern medicine approaches, his personalized attention offers patients a unique experience.
Dr. Feldman believes that the heart is truly the” heart” of things. If you manage cardiac health and their risks, you are automatically addressing the body (and minds) larger needs. To this end, he employs a comprehensive laboratory analysis of known cardiac measures that go beyond standard evaluations, enabling targeted therapies.
These tests can help answer the question, “do you really need a STATIN, or are there other options that might provide better outcomes?” While many medications may have value, there are numerous alternatives that might allow a patient to move away from medications while actually improving their overall function and health.
Alongside the laboratory analysis, Dr. Feldman offers a diagnostic test called the Multifunctional Cardiogram. This diagnostic tool, fully evaluates cardiac risk factors that measures the true cardiac cellular functions. This may help patients get a much closer result, preventing a heart attack by 90%!
Most people today are saddled with chronic health conditions that will forever change how they function. Only through changing the paradigm and restoring patients to their optimal health can there be a sustainable change in their lives.
Dr. Feldman is committed to going beyond helping you feel better now. He has a unique integrative approach to health that is patient-focused via Functional Medicine. He addresses the underlying problem as the source of the symptoms or disease state and treats the patient as a whole. He focuses on your sleep patterns, hormones, nutritional deficiencies, stress levels, intestinal health, neurotransmitters, and environmental toxic load...among other factors.
He forms a customized partnership with each client to educate them and to actively participate in refining their physical condition. He believes you need to take control of your own well-
