Welcome to The Thrive Clinic,
Your Family Practice Specializing in Functional Medicine
“The whole point is lots of engagement, monitoring and care. Getting to the level of thriving and not merely surviving is a process, a very invested one.”
I would like to provide the solutions to my patients that I personally have used to reverse my own chronic disease challenge, after failing to find the answer in the conventional medical approach.
I have been using these strategies to help my patients since 2013 and I have since completed the full training program in Functional Medicine with the Institute of Functional Medicine.
It has proven impossible to continue providing this level of care within the insurance-based system, as they don’t cover lifestyle and dietary interventions. We, therefore, have memberships available with different tiers, depending on individual needs, to help those who place a premium on their health and don’t want to accept the limits of traditional healthcare and insurance.
My goal is to treat the individual, not the disease. Serious or acute conditions are addressed first. Appropriate testing, referral, and prescription medication are used as indicated but, in many cases, the need for these can be eliminated and all cases it can be reduced, depending on motivation.
I look forward to starting your journey towards thriving with you. See below for an overview of how the process at The Thrive Clinic looks.
This is where it starts off. A full hour session to understand the entire context of you, with Dr. Sievert.
We take the time to learn what your history is, your present condition and where you want to be in the near and long term future.
Based on this visit’s discussion, Dr. Sievert will recommend an extensive lab panel to begin your functional medicine analysis. The analysis of these labs will allow to Dr. Sievert to begin identifying disease triggers and your core imbalances.
This is Dr. Sievert’s paramount session.
He has the context of you and now also has hard data from lab tests and advanced diagnostics.
This is where the strategy is set for walking out your path to recovery/wellness based on your goals.
* This appointment is typically 6-8 weeks after the initial appointment.
Follow-up appointments with Dr. Sievert will be used to monitor your progress towards your goals and to adjust your trajectory if necessary, typically in 2-3 month intervals. Additional labs may be recommended as you continue down your path towards thriving.
With the context, diagnosis and prescribed strategy from Dr. Sievert, our health coach can help you plan out your day-to-day course in regards to daily diet, nutrition, exercise and stress management. We recommend consulting with the health coach every 1-2 months during a membership year.
With as often as daily contact if desired.
When you have a question, concern or idea, contacting your team of providers at The Thrive Clinic is as easy as a quick message from your smart-phone or computer, right when you think of it using our Patient Portal.
While this is not a “Doctor on call”, your team will respond during normal business hours.
