Primary Care Physician
Functional Medicine concerns itself with the treatment and prevention of chronic conditions. Dr. Sherris is not a primary care physician. For that reason, Dr Sherris strongly advises all patients continue to be followed by their primary care physician. Please call your primary care physician for acute or urgent medical problems such as the flu, a urinary tract infection, acute gastroenteritis, etc. For acute emergencies, such as the sudden onset of chest pain, please call 911 immediately.
Dr. Sherris is happy to work with your primary care physician. The ultimate goal is to make you well and reduce or eliminate your need for prescription medications. Please do not stop taking your prescriptions without the advice of your physician. Even though prescription medications often have side effects, there is real danger when some medications are stopped abruptly.
