Welcome to FoundationMED

At FoundationMED, in Raleigh, North Carolina, patients receive a personalized and innovative combination of traditional and functional medicine. All patients see a residency-trained, certified physician with expertise in functional and traditional medicine for assessment and treatment.

FoundationMed is focused on maximizing their patients’ health. Instead of finding ways to mask symptoms, the team digs deeper in search of the root causes of health problems. At the same time, the team works with the men and women in their care to identify risk factors for disease and provide advice to reduce or eliminate them.

The team at FoundationMED uses research-supported methods and protocols, applying evidence-based treatments and therapies. The physicians have a wide range of specializations ranging from the methylation system to the Bredesen Protocol for advanced cognitive testing. 

At the comfortable, spacious office, the team offers personalized health coaching services, InBody testing, and access to telemedicine services including video/phone appointments and email access. FoundationMED ensures patients have the time they need with their doctor to build a partnership in health, with both parties equally invested in health improvement. 

FoundationMED welcomes new patients. Consultations are available by calling the practice or using the online scheduling tool.

The Thyroid - Two Common Conditions

Hormone dysfunction is at the root of MANY conditions that plague both women and men. Many of us have no idea that something is seriously wrong or even realize what they consider feeling “normal” is far from the possibility for a much more vibrant life.
