Integrative & Functional Medicine Consulting
Developing a Model of Integrative and Functional Medicine
Over the course of twenty years, Dr. Steinmetz developed a successful model to maintain quality patient care and allow patients to take advantage of their out of network benefits. This model can be modified to fit with small to large systems, depending on their strategic plan and system needs.
This archetype combined the characteristics of primary care in a family practice setting and consultations in Integrative Medicine and Functional Medicine, acupuncture and manipulation. Maintaining high standards of treatment while incorporating Integrative and Functional Medicine, is what earned the respect of the physicians in the community. This resulted in Dr. Steinmetz being named multiple times in the esteemed Washingtonian Top Doctor issue voted on by her physician peers. Additional Dr. Steinmetz was voted as ‘Top Doc’ in the Washington Consumer Checkbook by patients.
