Groups and Events

I am committed to empowering patients through education. I host monthly events, which are open to the public and free. Although I can’t provide medical advice to those who are not my patients, I am available to provide information and answer general questions related to my area of expertise. 

Dr. Andzel’s passion is to empower health transformation and to help patients foster and restore optimal health balance, not just experience a reduction in symptoms.

What to expect as a patient:

Dr. Andzel will begin by listening to you and learning your health story. She will test, not guess, and devise treatment protocols with adherence to health parameters with which you may already be familiar, as well as engaging cutting-edge functional health markers.



In the details of your story, a skilled physical exam, and laboratory findings will the underlying causes of your unresolved health complaints be found.

Partners in Care

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE is the future of conventional medicine–available now. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.
