Founder of the Longevity Health Institute and Lewerenz Medical Center, Dr. James Lewerenz has been named one of Detroit’s Top Docs of 2019 by Hour Detroit Media, publisher of Hour Detroit magazine. This honor is exclusive to the area, and top docs are nominated by and voted upon exclusively by M.D.s and D.O.s in southeastern Michigan. Dr. Lewerenz’s honor comes under the category of primary care and family practice.
Whole-Body Wellness Through Functional Medicine
Functional medicine is the backbone of Dr. Lewerenz’s practice. By identifying and addressing the root cause of disease, especially chronic disease, he helps patients achieve total wellness. Functional medical care is about determining why a set of symptoms exist at all and treating them at the source.
Dr. Lewerenz’s approach is patient-centered. There is no one-size-fits-all medicine, no here-is-a-prescription medicine at the Longevity Health Institute or Lewerenz Medical Center. Careful diagnosis, long-term solutions, and whole-body wellness are the tenets of functional medicine.
“I am honored to be named a Top Doc by Hour Detroit magazine,” says Dr. Lewerenz. “My goal is to provide all my patients with the best, personalized medical services available in southeastern Michigan. Utilizing functional medicine techniques and state-of-the-art treatment options allows me to focus on each patient to truly provide individualized, personalized care.” (more…)
