A pediatrician is a medical specialist who focuses on providing preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services to children of all ages. FoundationMED in Raleigh, North Carolina, is excited to have board-certified pediatrician Dr. David Katz as part of the team.
Dr. Katz is certified by the Institute for Functional Medicine, and he brings the principles of functional medicine to his care for the youngest patients within the practice. There are very few pediatricians with the training and skills needed to practice functional medicine.
One of the primary benefits of pediatric care is the opportunity for your child to build a trusting bond with Dr. Katz early in life, under circumstances that are peaceful and calm. Far too many parents bring their child to see a doctor only when an issue arises. That can teach kids to fear going to the doctor, which can affect their approach to health care services even into adulthood.
Functional medicine seeks to identify the underlying cause of disease, rather than simply treating individual symptoms as they arise. It takes a patient-centric approach that looks at each patient as a whole.
When applied to pediatric care, functional medicine can yield powerful results and transform lives. Dr. Katz works hard to identify aspects of your child’s health, lifestyle, social and emotional health, and environmental factors to get to the root of his or her current symptoms and challenges.
When your child is very young the visits will include time to educate you as a parent on how to best support your child’s health. As your son or daughter grows and matures, the focus shifts to educating your child on ways to prevent disease and enhance overall health and wellness.
Every effort is made to empower your child to take ownership of his or her health journey. Dr. Katz will be there to answer questions and address concerns as they arise. Your family will enjoy access to one of the region’s top pediatricians, and one of the select few who offer functional pediatric medicine.
