Functional Medicine Institute of the Midwest

At Functional Medicine Institute of the Midwest, patient-centered care is the center of the therapeutic partnership, this is the relationship that forms between a patient and clinician and which empowers the patient to take ownership of their own healing. Patients who are active participants feel more in control of their well-being and are more likely to make sustained lifestyle changes to improve their health.

I want to thank Dr. Robart for, at age 70, giving me my life back! I started seeing him to boost my immune system after being diagnosed with early-stage bladder cancer, which was my second cancer in my lifetime. He also found a third pre-cancer during my workup. After several months of treatment, I feel incredible and have an enormous amount of energy. As a bonus, the treatments made an enormous improvement in my Meniere’s disease, which would have me in bed several days a month with vertigo for the past seven years. I haven’t had a vertigo attack in over nine months. I would highly recommend anyone at any age to see him for his wellness program!

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is a patient-centered rather than a disease centered approach to treatment in which the treatment is a search for a dynamic balance among the body, mind and spirit. Health is identified as a positive vitality not merely the absence of disease. A patient-centered approach refers to health care that is respectful and responsive to individual patient preference, needs and values and ensures that patient values guide all clinical decision.

While our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer from complex, chronic disease the system of medicine practiced by most physicians is oriented toward acute care, trauma or illness that is of short duration. Physicians apply specific treatments such as drugs or surgery that aim to treat the immediate problem. This approach lacks the proper methodology for preventing and treating complex, chronic disease. Also there is a huge gap between research and the average doctor’s practice. Many physicians are not adequately trained to assess the underlying causes that affect their patients.
