Conditions NOT treated

Dr. Rich considers himself a Functional Medicine generalist and leans towards the conservative end of the Functional Medicine spectrum. 

Below are conditions that Dr. Rich believes would be better served by a different practitioner:

  • Urgent Care/Acute Conditions (colds, flus, etc.): Dr. Rich cannot be your primary care doctor and we highly recommend that you have one.

  • Lyme disease

  • Mold exposure and toxicity

  • Mercury and heavy metal detoxification/chelation

  • Mental Disorders: Eating Disorders, Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Severe Depression, PTSD, etc

  • Patients looking specifically for the following treatment protocols: bio-identical hormones and IV therapies
