Michelle Ross & The Clinical Services Team
We offer multiple programs to assist you on
your healing journey.
TheDr.com Functional Medicine Programs are designed to address the root cause of your symptoms and understand the underlying mechanism of your condition.
Although we get asked about specific disease states, we do not define individuals by their diagnosis. While a diagnosis is valuable in addressing WHAT is going on in your body, our team specializes in understanding WHY you are experiencing these symptoms. It’s only when we know WHY that we can obtain a full health picture and move forward with an action plan that is designed to restore optimal health.

- Adrenal imbalances

This program includes the Total Immunoglobulin Panel
(IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM), a 30-minute consultation with our Functional Medicine Nutritionist, and your personal Living Matrix timeline and health. This popular program is the first step on your journey to wellness!
*Also see our Discovery Program for International Clients
This program will help you discover ‘what’s been missed’ in your
journey to better health. Our functional medicine practitioners
will recommend functional laboratory testing in order to uncover the root cause(s) of your health issues and to assist with creating your personalized wellness plan. You will also meet with our nutritionist and
health coach for support.
This program is recommended if you desire a more comprehensive wellness approach. The Functional Medicine Premiere Program is especially recommended for those that are experiencing symptoms or have a chronic health condition. We have found that clients experience the most significant health transformations when they partner with us on an ongoing basis.
Start with the Functional Medicine Discovery Program
We recommend our clients start with the Functional Medicine Discovery Program.
In this program, you will understand the current status of your immune system and whether future antibody testing will be of value to you. This money-saving starter program includes a LabCorp Total Immunoglobulin Test Panel (IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM), Client Portal, Functional Medicine Assessment (Health History Timeline & Health Score), Fullscript Account (access to professional grade supplements), and 30-minute consultation with one of our highly trained practitioners.
During this 30-minute consultation, you will have an opportunity to share your health history, ask specific questions, and receive more tailored one-to-one support. You will also learn the current state of your immune system and discover the right next steps to take on your journey to health. The appropriate Functional Laboratory Test or Clinical Services Program will be recommended for you. This appointment could save you hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of dollars from trying to navigate this on your own.
Once you have completed The Functional Medicine Discovery Program, you can participate in the Functional Medicine Essentials or Premier Program.

Laboratory Testing is Important
Our practitioners specialize in functional medicine laboratory testing. We offer test recommendation consultations and test interpretation consultations that are conducted via our HIPAA-compliant Virtual Wellness Clinic or in our California office.
Functional medicine testing assists our clinicians in addressing the root cause of underlying disorders. Functional medicine testing may include blood, stool, urine, saliva or hair samples. In-depth testing offers clinicians more information about your metabolic, nutritional, and detoxification status as well as further details on your hormonal, endocrine, gastrointestinal, and immune system function. This reliable testing helps to address “why” and “what” led to the present state of illness.
A Word From Dr. Tom
In my 30 years of clinical practice, the most significant health transformations that I have witnessed involve those that willing to look upstream for the root cause(s) of their health symptoms. This is what Functional Medicine is all about. This practice model is changing the face of healthcare. The question is not “WHAT” is going on with my health and body, but rather “WHY” am I experiencing these symptoms. If you would like to uncover “WHY” you are experiencing symptoms, I invite you to work with my Clinical Services Team. I have trained my team extensively in Functional Medicine, Nutrition, and my own 4 Pillars of Health methodology. I have the utmost confidence in my team’s ability to partner with you and guide you along this healing journey.

Frequently Asked Questions
TheDr.com Clinical Services Team is virtual. This means all of our appointments take place over Zoom (a HIPAA compliant video platform), virtually from anywhere in the world!
Currently, due to Dr. Tom’s travel schedule, he is not accepting any new clients. He is referring all requests for consultations to his Clinical Services team.
Our practitioners are not licensed medical doctors and cannot provide advice or services specific to this aspect of medicine. All clients must have a primary care provider.
Even though we get asked about specific diseases, we don’t define people by their diagnosis. Yes, it’s important information to know, but our goal is to assist you with getting to the root cause and understanding the underlying mechanism of your condition.
Unfortunately, we do not accept any form of insurance.
No, unfortunately, we currently do not offer payment plans.
Our programs are specifically designed to assist with finding the root cause of your chronic illness and to provide ongoing support with a variety of staff members, including Functional Medicine Practitioners, Nutritionists, and Health Coaches.

Yes! Functional laboratory testing is vital to the success of our programs. Functional testing helps to uncover specific biochemical imbalances, hidden gut infections, and specific nutrient deficiencies. Simply put, functional testing helps us get to the root cause of your health concerns. Without this information, we would be guessing. Instead, we want to know with certainty the imbalances that are causing your symptoms.
We recommend purchasing the Functional Medicine Discovery Program so that our skilled practitioners can assist with personalized testing recommendations.
On average, you can expect to spend between $500-$2000 on functional laboratory testing. In some cases, follow-up testing may be necessary to ensure that your personalized wellness plan is effective. Our practitioners understand that functional laboratory testing is an investment in your health and will help you prioritize testing based on your budget.
It’s difficult to define how long it takes to heal as each individual is different. There are multiple factors that can determine the length of healing such as your current state of health, level of participation and commitment, health history, lifestyle preferences, genetics, and health goals. Because of this uniqueness, our team always creates personalized wellness plans that are specific to your needs. This means that the healing process can vary, and can even vary drastically for two individuals presenting with the same condition! What we can say with confidence is that clients tend to experience the most significant health transformations when they partner with us on an ongoing basis.
Yes, we offer a Functional Discovery Program for International Clients. You are responsible for having your medical doctor order Total Immunoglobulin Panel (IgA, IgE, IgG, & IgM) PRIOR to purchasing the Discovery Program. Total Immunoglobulin Panel (IgA, IgE, IgG, & IgM) is a simple blood test that is required prior to ordering any further testing through theDr.com. Any additional tests that are included in your Total Immunoglobulin Panel test report must be converted into U.S. units of measure and reference ranges and translated into English.
