Dr. Nicole DiNezza, DC
I do a lot of things differently than my colleagues, even within functional medicine. Here are some ways that my practice differs from others:
- Many functional medicine practitioners order "all the tests on all the people," meaning that every patient is required to do a stool test, hormone test, vitamin test, toxin test, and food test. While they do have their time and place, I do not rely heavily on what I jokingly call "fancy labs." I predominantly order blood work through your insurance using Labcorp or Quest. Only after the first round of testing do we discuss further testing (usually).
- I believe that understanding and laughter are two of the most powerful medicines we have available, and I make use of them frequently
