What is HOPE Care?

HOPE Care stands for Helping Our Patients Excell. The Excell for Life motto from the earliest days of the practice has been “Empowering You to Grow Stronger & Healthier at Every Age” and this is what we mean by Helping Our Patients Excell.

It is a revolutionary approach to delivering exceptional holistic, patient oriented health care and a partnership between you and your HOPE Care provider.

Why did we create HOPE Care?
For you. We think you deserve better care than the current health care system allows us to provide. With all the changes with the Affordable Care Act and new billing coding system ICD-10, doctors must see more patients in the same amount of time and give less quality care.

How does it work?
Patients who wish to join HOPE Care pay a monthly fee for amazing services and benefits designed to optimize your health. See the HOPE Care Benefits section for more details!

In order to provide these greater services our providers limit their practice to a very small number of patients.

HOPE Care is about continuing to practice a leading-edge mix of traditional and functional medicine. Traditional medicine is very important and has real value in getting healthy after you are already sick, and yet it lacks the deeper benefits of preventative care we see with functional medicine.

What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.

This chart shows the difference between traditional and functional medicine.



Focused on naming the disease then using drugs or surgery to “fix it”

Focused on finding and treating the root cause of symptoms

“Pill for an ill” philosophy

Philosophy of replacing what is missing and removing what may be toxic

Treat one part of body

Treat the WHOLE body


Mind, Body, Spirit Centered

Can’t Individualize Treatments

Personalized Medicine

Using flowcharts and guidelines to treat everyone the same

Use patient history, symptoms, and lab testing to find individual needs

Many specialists and many drugs,

Branches Down…

Finding common links to many ailments.

Roots Up…

Short office visits—plan is decided before even listening to the patient

Provider is a partner in your health care, cares about your goals and works to achieve them

Your health is worth investing in!
