Expediency, flexibility and convenience of virtual visits empower people to confer with their healthcare providers from the comfort of their own homes. During the last few years Dr. Garvey has implemented tele-health to clients to deliver holistic healthcare for patients at home. Delivering virtual functional medicine, functional nutrition, laboratory requisition and interpretation, neuro-vagal therapy and PSYCH-K, virtually and in-person.
Dr. Garvey delivers holistic health to achieve each patients’ goals and objectives through solutions that go beyond conventional recommendations. Implementing virtual care allows for many services that have only been in-person, such as phlebotomy services, now able to be performed in the privacy of their own homes. Also now many labs have implemented at-home testing kits complete with instructions and procedures for labs including Urinalysis, Stool, Saliva and Blood Spot testing. Many labs are covered by insurances, flexible spending accounts, health savings accounts and are often a deductible medical expense. Dr. Garvey will determine if any labs are needed, order them and have the lab kits shipped directly to you.
FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE & FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION
Functional medicine determines how and why a condition/symptom occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease. The functional medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and their Doctor to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s history, lifestyle, and biochemical factors and leverages that data to customize personal treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes. By addressing root causes, rather than just symptoms, Doctor Garvey often finds many conditions that result from one cause, or likewise, one condition that has many different causes. As a result, functional medicine’s personalized treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual so you can live the life you want.
Over the last few years Dr. Garvey has trained and worked with functional medicine practitioners and patients virtually and in her office at Allergy Breakthrough Center. Dr. Garvey has been caring for family members of every age, even infants and pets, remotely, with great success. Of course she loves working hands-on with patients directly in her Main Street office in beautiful downtown Clinton, NJ overlooking the iconic Clinton Waterfalls and the Red Mill. For those that can’t visit Clinton, she offers tele-health visits for her patients in California, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
