Resolving chronic and resistant diseases by integrating a Functional Medicine model by distinguishing what is optimal from what is within the range of normal limits and by integrating all the factors that may have contributed to the disease. In a functional framework, as opposed to acute diseases which usually have only one cause, chronic diseases are understood as the end-result of multiple aggressions on an already weakened and/or overwhelmed body.

Some patients join our practice after completing several rounds of treatments from other medical providers. Dr. Mass' starting protocol considers the patient's sensitivity and capacity. He advocates for collaborating with other medical and health providers to deliver patient-centered care from a team of experts.
