Background and Medical Philosophy
The current breakdown of the US medical system is leaving both physicians and patients enormously unsatisfied. Despite spectacular advances in medical sciences, our current high cost disease oriented healthcare system in an increasing fast paced depersonalized high tech society is leaving more and more people at an alarming rate suffering from fatigue, discomfort, pain, anxiety, and poor health. Our lifestyles are causing an epidemic of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, dementia and autoimmune diseases. Most physicians cringe when they are confronted with these "untreatable" and "incurable" conditions and often mistakenly ignore these subtle warning signs or messengers from our bodies screaming in distress. In response people are turning to functional medicine to get to the root cause of why they don't feel well and correct the imbalances that promote disease.
Dr Grundstein is a medical doctor with a new vision of medical care. She seeks to provide cutting edge care by integrating the best of nutritional and traditional medicine with good old fashion caring. Her all encompassing commitment to provide the highest quality of care, coupled with a unique dedication and overriding concern for her patients is truly an anachronism in modern medicine. She believes the art of medicine lies in entering the lives of patients, slowly cultivating the doctor- patient, relationship as a partnership striving toward a common goal of achieving optimal physical, mental, and social well being regardless of ones underlying state of health or disease.
Dr. Grundstein's fascination with optimizing human health and performance stems from her experience as a competitive gymnast and coach which led to training in exercise physiology, nutrition, bio-mechanics, health promotion and disease prevention and behavioral medicine. She has a B.S. in exercise science from the University of Massachusetts - Amherst. prior to graduating medical school she was a personal trainer and taught health and fitness to people of all ages for ten years. She has extensive experience designing and implementing corporate, community and personalized wellness programs. Her unique experience has given her a well rounded and holistic perspective of the entire health continuum from illness to wellness that has proven to be invaluable.
