Do you know that 1 in 2 people suffer silently for years with reversible hormone imbalances, digestive disorders, stealth infections, and cognitive issues like brain fog and memory loss?
Do you also know that many people with these chronic health issues are never properly tested by their primary care doctors?
Oftentimes they hear “everything is fine” or “it’s just a sign of getting older”, when they know they don’t feel fine and feel like they aren’t being heard?
Left unchecked, all these issues can lead to more complicated health problems such as autoimmune disease, chronic pain, inflammation and heart disease, and obesity.
Dr. Feldman is a licensed, board-certified Family Medicine physician. She completed medical school at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago. Following medical school, she completed residency training at the oldest and most renowned family medicine program in Illinois, the MacNeal Hospital Family Medicine Residency in Berwyn, IL. During her three years of training in family medicine, she was able to pursue her passion for integrative and functional medicine. As a resident, Dr. Feldman spent time working with Dr. Andrew Weil’s program in Integrative Medicine in Tucson, AZ, and with a natural medicine clinic in Chicago.
After residency in 2008, she opened her insurance-based integrative primary care clinic in La Grange, IL (Integrative Family Health Associates / IFHA). Although IFHA was successful, she found that it only helped a small fraction of her patients actually get or remain healthy. Dr. Feldman started her own personal journey of improved health and healing near the end of her residency, and wanted to more effectively share her wellness knowledge and expertise with her struggling patients. In 2015, Dr. Feldman created a formal functional wellness practice (Vitality Wellness Partners) outside of the insurance model and found that her patients were dramatically more successful at reaching their health goals. Given her family medicine background, Dr. Feldman remained committed to offering excellent integrative primary care to all of her patients and did not want to give up this side of her practice. In 2018, Dr. Feldman proudly opened Vitality Family Health, a new and improved healthcare model to deliver amazing primary care while also supporting patients to continue to improve their health. At Vitality Family Health, patients are getting fantastic results while maintaining a supportive place to come to for all of their primary care needs.
Dr. Feldman became a charter member of the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine in November, 2014, and continues to work on progressing the integrative medicine movement. She had the honor of presenting at Harvard University and received the Outstanding Holistic Practitioner Award. She has appeared on television in different cities on ABC, NBC, and FOX morning shows. Dr. Feldman is also an inspiring speaker for the Functional Forum. She is excited to share her growing knowledge and skills in functional medicine and wellness care.
Dr. Feldman enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, and playing badminton.
