Functional Medicine takes a more natural, holistic view of medicine with the aim of evaluating the entire body as a whole, not as individual parts, and developing a plan of care that is tailored just for you. It is an integrative, science based healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by considering all the unique biochemical aspects of each individual patient, and then recommends interventions to help restore balance for physical, mental, and spiritual wellness. We delve into the root causes of your persistent problems that have been resistant to treatment in the past. The above diagram depicts your overall health as a tree. Allopathic medical providers stay in the leaves of the tree, focusing on one specific body system and treating only that part. Functional Medicine practitioners promote wellness by focusing on the roots. These are the factors that influence every patient's experience of health and wellness. Options Health Family Practice uses the functional medicine concept in all treatments to achieve better results for your overall wellness.

What Patients Say
"Recommend to Friends"
"Puts Me at Ease"
Last week I had an unexpected and uncommon (for me) ear ache! I contacted Patti Mitchell at Options Health and was pleased I could be seen later that afternoon. I found the Options Health office to be clean, professional and conveniently located. Patti offered me a drink of water upon arrival and the office environment was warm and accommodating. Upon examination, I was diagnosed with an ear infection that had resulted in a ruptured ear drum. I was prescribed an antibiotic along with something to settle the allergies down. By the time I left the office, I had the peace of mind I would be on the road to recovery very soon...now several days later, I feel so much better! In this day of inflated medical costs and outrageous copays and deductibles, the price was more than reasonable! I'm grateful to Patti for her knowledge, her caring and her expertise. Options Health has my total support and I am happy to recommend them to my friends and family.
Patti Mitchell FNP treated me for hypertension at Options. I'm very reluctant to take prescription medication, but Patti was patient, kind and gave me the drug information to read for myself. I made the decision to take the medication Patti prescribed and now I'm feeling great. I definitely trust Patti with me and my family's healthcare and I highly recommend her to anyone else.
Options Health is a great resource for any day to day medical need. Patty listens to you, makes good recommendations and consults all available resources to help you along. She has helped me get my blood pressure under control. Options Health is terrific for anyone that needs medical attention without the headache that comes with traditional doctors offices.

I dont have insurance. I've also had some terrible experiences with Doctors in CT when i was on state insurance... Mrs Patti was very compassionate. She listened to my concerns and dealt with my fears with patience and knowledge. She was thorough in her exam and answered my questions and addressed my concerns. I didnt leave til she made sure I was satisfied with the appointment..Her flat fee scale is perfect. NO added stress with uncertain bills.
Capable, expedient, local service
