FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE MEMBERSHIP
We do everything possible to provide high level care and services within the insurance-based model. We recognize, however, that care provided from a functional medicine standpoint requires many different skill sets. As a result, we have recruited a talented group of care givers to complement the services provided by Dr. Wittels and Dr. Pravs. This innovative team-based approach to care is often not a service covered by insurance. To facilitate our patients' access to these care modalities and resources, our practice operates as a membership model within which Dr. Wittels' and Dr. Pravs' patients participate. For less than $500 annually, our members have the opportunity to experience this truly comprehensive care.
TRY US OUT
We invite you to try out our membership—we offer a one-visit insurance based medical consultation (excludes wellness visits) with one of our physicians without having to pay the membership fee.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MIHG MEMBERSHIP & TRADITIONAL MEDICAL PRACTICES
IT'S TRULY ALL ABOUT YOU
We work as a team toward achieving "prime" whole person health rather than simply addressing an illness.
Insurance-driven health care subscribes to treating symptoms with pharmaceuticals, specialist referrals and medical procedures.
We spend nearly twice the amount of time with our patients than traditional practices do.
Holistic, root-cause medicine takes more time and is worth every minute.
IT'S A TEAM EFFORT
Our group of experienced, on-site practitioners work collectively and collaboratively to share their knowledge and better plan for patient healing and happiness. Traditional practices have limited capabilities to coordinate with specialists in an effort to create a comprehensive wellness plan.
PREVENTION IS OUR PATH
Whereas the traditional healthcare approach is focused on treating a current illness, we believe in the power of prevention.
We focus on enabling patients to understand the possibility and power of feeling their very best and what it takes
to get there and stay there.
WE TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Our diagnostics and lab work go beyond what standard insurance lab work reveals. We gather next level data
to truly understand your overall health profile.
