Dr. Elisa Mercuro was drawn to functional medicine after recognizing she was managing chronic disease and decline in a busy conventional family practice. For the past 5 years she has been studying and practicing functional medicine and works to empower her patients to find health and balance. She now uses lifestyle first and believes that nutrition, sleep, exercise, stress management, relationships and connection are the foundations of health. To restore balance in her patients she uses an eclectic mix of functional, integrative and osteopathic medicine as well as conventional modalities when required.
Dr. Mercuro has no financial interest, arrangement or affiliation that could be perceived as a real or apparent conflict of interest in the contact or subject of this presentation.
