When I began shadowing Ed Levitan MD in 2012 at Visions Healthcare, two things happened: first, a whole world of knowledge of patient care opened up to me. Second, this very same world significantly improved my son’s health, something that had been a struggle for a couple years. Little did I know that this knowledge would significantly impact my own health, which in turn allowed me to have the ability to help others.
It was a light bulb moment but on a lighthouse scale. My work at Visions Healthcare and training at the Institute of Functional Medicine provided me more tools to assess, diagnose and treat patients with chronic medical and psychiatric problems. It’s difficult to explain sometimes the depth and breadth of what we do as clinicians in this field.
