Functional Medicine

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."
- Thomas Edison

This likely isn’t your first rodeo with Functional Medicine. For you, “eating the rainbow” or “stick to the outside of the grocery store,” or “just eat more fiber” probably didn’t work. You need a more thorough, strategic, and tailored approach. We achieve that by incorporating your unique needs, our experience, and the latest research.  If you are tired of protocols, expensive testing, and too many supplements, click the video and learn what makes The HIVE approach unique.

Dr. Nick believes having a healthy gut should be at the center of any health journey, and in many instances, digestive dysfunction can be the root cause of many other conditions. These include the more traditional gut issues such as:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) 

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) 

  • Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)


Additionally, digestive dysfunction can contribute to autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Celiac Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and even systemic symptoms including fatigue, brain fog, dry skin, anxiety, and depression.

Do you see patients virtually?

Dr. Nick prefers to see his new practice members in person
However, we understand that for some people location and comfort levels may vary when it comes to in-person versus virtual healthcare.
Fortunately, we offer Virtual Functional Medicine Visits via our HIPAA-compliant video conferencing software for individuals who qualify.
If you are an Arizona resident you automatically qualify for virtual functional medicine visits. If you are out of state and want to know if you qualify, schedule a complementary Discovery Call with Dr. Nick to find out.
