If you could recommend one thing to someone new coming to thrive it would be?
Make sure you are able to sign in to your secure patient portal and fill out your medical questionnaire to maximize your visit with your doctor.
Also follow Thrive Carolinas on Facebook, Instagram and/or weekly emails for updates and our events.
What is your definition of Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of many problematic symptoms so the patient doesn’t continue just treating the symptoms.
The best part about an appointment?
Being able to spend as much time as you need with your doctor. Also the ease of calling in and actually speaking with one of our team members personally and being able to message your doctor directly through the portal. My advice is to make sure you are able to log in and use your patient portal.

Dog Kisses on the mouth
What does Jordan do that annoys you?
Well his handwriting is hard to read…but he is great to work for!
