Progressive Medical Center proudly offers the finest functional medicine care in the metro Atlanta, GA area. Our team consists of passionate individuals who wake up every day with the goal of making a positive impact in our patients’ lives. Many of our patients visit us after exhausting the traditional medicine approach. However, functional medicine should not be the last resort – it should be your first option!
Functional Medicine is a patient-focused approach that centers on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness. This is a welcomed contrast over most traditional medical practices that focus on treating the symptoms and simply look at blood markers – while ignoring a patient’s symptoms.
Our human bodies are an interconnected network of various systems. Hence, when one item breaks down – it potentially causes issues in other areas. Hence, we look at items like; medical history, genetics, mental/physical health, and more.
Also, it’s important to note that our lifestyle habits can either support or harm us. Acknowledging this, we also look at lifestyle factors, including; stress levels, diet, exercise habits, and more.
When a patient begins their treatment at Progressive Medical Center, we start them on a journey to health that includes extensive yet comprehensive testing. We create a comprehensive personal profile that looks at the body as a connected system – not disjointed parts.
Furthermore, our diagnostics program tests each patient to establish data for over a thousand biomarkers. This gives us a complete snapshot of what’s going on in their bodies. Ultimately, our team of medical professionals analyzes the data and devises a strategy to restore optimum health.
Using state-of-the-art treatment modalities, we’re able to develop solutions that bring patients back to optimum health more quickly over the alternatives. Our focus on treating the root causes of the symptoms also guarantees that we rely less on medications with side effects. Instead, we opt for more natural treatment methods whenever possible.
