Often, patients receive a diagnosis without explanation of the underlying causes and contributing factors of their presenting complaint. Through comprehensive historical analysis (IFM Timeline tool), strategic biomarker testing, and a perspective that looks at whole-person health rather than just symptoms, Dr. Stewart focuses on identifying the root cause or pattern of disease. This allows for a more effective, result-focused treatment strategy.
