Dr. Talebi works with individuals who are determined to accomplish their optimal well-being. Though she takes her role as an educator very seriously, her belief is that it is the patient who will ultimately need to make the necessary life-style changes. She is adamant in involving the patient with every step of their care and her success is commensurate with the level of Commitment and personalization that she affords to every patient.
A core principle of her practice which is based on Functional Medicine is to find the underlying cause of a disease through looking at the body's physiology. This is done through comprehensive lab work. While, lab work are commonly performed at an allopathic physicians office, often the information obtained are considered within normal ranges. This is because labratories use ranges based on sick and unhealthy individuals so a person is only notified when their results are in pathological ranges; meaning they have already developed a serious disease.
