Mary Frazier Colfer, MD, FMNM
"Over the last 15 years, I have developed an awareness of both the strengths and weaknesses of the traditional clinical practice of Western medicine. To gain greater insight and better serve my patients, I began studying functional medicine, nutrition, herbal medicine, biofeedback, and meditation.
I believe that true healing is best facilitated using Western modalities in conjunction with other healing philosophies. My practice is devoted to evidence-based, functional medicine. I work with members to develop safe, individualized treatment plans based on the latest scientific breakthroughs." - Mary Frazier Colfer, M.D.

Proactive Integrative Care
Safeguard your health with a progressive approach to prevention. We begin with a 2.5 hour, annual physical tuned to your personalized risk factors. Don't trust your health to a cursory review or a government guideline.
We treat the loss of strength, vitality, and sexual function that can accompany aging by understanding and treating the root causes of these symptoms. Cardiometabolic health, hormone balance, gut health, and other factors can have major impact on how you feel and perform.
There is no one-size-fits-all formula for living well and feeling good. Your genetics can equip you to make informed nutritional, lifestyle, and activity decisions. We help you reduce guesswork and get results.
We Are Your Team
Our job does not stop with good advice. We create, manage, and help you execute a plan for your optimal health. We are there for you 24/7 by text, email, and phone.
Standard labs look for the most common indicators but don't take into account your personal thresholds and history. Our advanced lab panels and genetic profiling go far beyond the ordinary to detect issues before they affect your health.
Physician-Led Weight Loss
Weight loss resistance is a frustrating reality for many. While calories in/calories out matter, your hormones may matter more. We test and optimize key hormones that contribute to your sense of well being, metabolism, calorie burn, fat retention, and hunger.
In-depth diet and fitness review with a personal health coach. Explore genetically tuned diet and exercise guidelines designed to help you feel and perform your best.
More Time for You
