Functional Medicine in Oakland CA
Functional Medicine in Oakland addresses the root cause of disease, using a systems-oriented, patient-focused model and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.
Rather than chasing an isolated set of symptoms, Functional Medicine doctors address the whole person. We spend time with our patients by taking a comprehensive history, and looking at the relationships between your lifestyle, environment and genetics. These factors influence long-term health and can contribute to chronic disease. By finding the root cause of your disease, we can use supplements and lifestyle changes to get you on the road to feel well for the long-term.
We focus on:
- Gut health
- Food sensitivities
- Pain and Inflammation
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Healthy weight
- Mental wellness
- Autoimmune conditions

Dr. Carolyn Finnegan offers a 15 minute free consultation. This call is designed to hear a brief overview of your health history and ensure that we are a good fit for your wellness goals.
HOW DOES A PHONE OR VIDEO CONSULTATION WORK?
Dr. Carolyn Finnegan works with patients primarily over the phone or video because the health programs we design are based on the results of lab tests that can easily be done in your home. The types of tests that are used are stool, saliva, or urine samples, occasionally blood tests.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Finnegan will review your personal and family health history and make recommendations for lab tests that are appropriate for your specific health issues. Once your lab work has been completed, she will explain the meaning of your test results to you in a follow-up consultation. Dr. Finnegan will also create an individualized health program for you which will include one or more of the following: diet changes, nutritional supplements, and exercise, lifestyle and stress management recommendations. Subsequent consultations are scheduled to monitor your progress and to modify your program.
*Lab tests are charged separately
