Naples Center for Functional Medicine held an open house and physician meet-and-greet that allowed the community, current and prospective patients to speak with the practice’s doctors and medical staff.
Formerly named the Hughes Center for Functional Medicine, the Naples Center for Functional Medicine was acquired in April by Naples-based HealthLynked Corp., a leader in digital connected health care, whose cloud-based technology links patient members with providers and facilitates medical record sharing and exchange.
Newly-named medical director Dr. Carol L. Roberts, who specializes in natural and holistic healing, officially welcomed Dr. Eduardo Maristany to the Naples Center as a physician and researcher specializing in genomics. HealthLynked is led by CEO and Chairman Dr. Michael Dent, along with Chief Financial Officer George O’Leary.
Nearly 100 current and future patients and their family members attended the open house, which was held Wednesday, May 1, at the Naples Center for Functional Medicine, 800 Goodlette-Frank Road, Suite 270, in Naples. Visitors explored the range of programs and services offered at the practice, including nutritional analysis, diagnostic testing, IV therapy, supplement therapy, genetic testing, natural hormone therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Functional medicine is a medical practice whereby physicians evaluate a whole patient rather than just treating that patient’s symptoms. Doctors of functional medicine seek to determine how and why disease, illness and pain are occurring, and restore health by optimizing a patient’s body and organs through an evidence-based, holistic approach to medical care.
