Meet The Team
Fred Harvey, Medical Director
Triple Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Geriatric Medicine and Functional Medicine
Certified Institute for Functional Medicine Practitioner
In medical practice in the American “health care” paradigm since 1996, Dr. Fred Harvey has mastered a synergistic east meets west, internal and functional medical practice that few physicians have mastered. With an encyclopedic comprehension of the human body and mind, Dr. Harvey’s intellectual brilliance has ignited thousands of patients to achieve & maintain optimal wellness.
Dr. Harvey’s medical educational and experiential path has been extensive. He is a passionate advocate of wellness, teacher of functional medicine, a lifelong student, and trusted collaborator. He currently teaches his patients and seminar students what their individual bodies need, how the physiological functions operate, and then designs individual lifestyle plans that are not hindered by lack of proper nutrition, intake of non-foods or absorption of harmful chemicals. With a strong focus on preventive care and wellness, Dr. Harvey offers obtainable treatments for complex health challenges in people of all ages. Dr. Harvey provides extensive, specialized one-on-one care starting with the microbiome. He listens intently and provides thorough consultation, accurate diagnosis, testing and treatment within his one to two hour appointments.
Harvey’s philosophy is to prevent disease rather than treat random symptoms by template matching a set of medical insurance codes. For this reason, Dr. Harvey stepped away from the Insurance companies and Medicare’s endlessly binding red tape that limited the HCIM 2 hour consultations and has championed a wellness focused; self-pay practice promoting individual care plans. The way all medical care should be–comprehensive, unhurried and individualized.
Having served the community since 1989, Dr. Harvey’s passion for health has lead to his professional relationship with nutraceutical (supplement) manufacturer Xymogen, Inc. As a founding member of Xymogen’s Board of Advisors, Dr. Harvey has developed specific nutritional formulas and is creating workshop opportunities to educate medical professionals and patients worldwide.
Dr. Fred Harvey is triple American Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Geriatric Medicine and Functional Medicine.
