When Roots Medical opens its doors for business in 2014, our primary focus and company goal will be "getting to the Root of your health care concerns." We generally take an integrative view of the body and health, treating physical symptoms as signals from a complex, interconnected sytstem rather than as isolated malfunctions. Through our comprehensive intake process, we identify the source of your health ailment and formulate a plan that gets you back to the quality of life you deserve. Our philosophy, 'better health is possible' is something we live by at Roots Medical and together we can achieve that. At Roots Medical we focus on the 3 spectrums of health; Physical, Emotional and Nutritional. It is our belief that a healthy balance between these three is the key to great and sustainable health.
Our providers hold a distinct advantage over most medical practices in that we do not limit ourselves to just the traditional methods of medicine. Through the use of supplements, lifestyle improvements and nutrition we can minimize the dependency of prescription drugs . In cases where we deem it appropriate to prescribe drugs, it is done so with a specific plan to get our patients back to their optimal health level.
Whether you have felt Overweight, Tired, Cranky, Foggy minded or just desire better health, Roots Medical can help you formulate a plan that starts you on the path to feeling great again.
Tracy Wolfe, FNP is a Family Nurse Practitioner with a background in internal medicine taking an integrative approach in her practice. Tracy has done extensive research on cholesterol and diabetes management, including conducting multiple clinical trials for diabetic patients. One main focus of Tracy's is to prevent diabetes before the diagnosis with advanced clinical testing.

The Nutrition aspect of Tracy's approach plays an integral part of the success at Roots Medical. We promote an organic, non-GMO diet and will eliminate the food from your diet that is making you sick. As a part of your customized health program you will be scheduled a one-on-one consultation with our nutritionist who will implement the needed changes in your diet that will deliver results you can see and feel quickly.
Roots Medical takes a functional medicine approach, meaning a combination of holistic and traditional care. A great example of the approach we may take at Roots Medical is before prescribing a sleep sedative for insomnia, we identify lifestyle, diet, hormone deficiency and vitamin intake and then devise a plan based on those findings. Tracy and the Roots Medical team will then educate you on potential changes in lifestyle as well as introducing the appropriate supplements combined with a nutritional program catered to your exact needs.
