Dr. Michael Gilmore is a certified Family Medicine Practitioner with years of experience treating routine medical problems encountered in Primary Care. He always had an interest in Osteopathic Manipulation and Alternative Medicine. Also, he is certified in Functional Medicine by the Institute For Functional Medicine.
At the Maine Center for Functional Medicine, we still treat typical Adult Medical Issues with Traditional Medication, if patients wish. However, we leave the old ways of thinking behind. People want more. As new information comes out and new testing techniques are available, Dr. Gilmore incorporates these into traditional medical practice experiences.
The public’s interest in Natural Medicine, Vitamins, Supplements, Lifestyle, Nutrition, Diet, Natural Thyroid Hormone, Bioidentical Hormones, and other non-medication options is growing. Dr. Gilmore’s patients have the benefit of both. As he continues to train in Functional Medicine, he adds new, powerful testing and treatment techniques, giving patients more choices and a voice in their healthcare.
Currently, Dr. Gilmore sees adults as a Primary Care Provider through referrals or consults. He sees children by consult only. He manages common problems like Diabetes, Hypertension, Obesity, Thyroid Problems, High Cholesterol, and does most of his dermatology.
Dr. Gilmore prefers to use Natural Approaches to family medicine. He successfully stopped or reduced medications for many. He regularly sees patients who believe they take too many drugs or are tired of side effects. It’s rewarding to work with patients who make changes to cure or improve illness instead of just taking medications for the rest of their lives.
Dr. Gilmore has become a regular Referral Option and Consulting Physician for many local and statewide practices. He loves difficult problems. Family medicine is his passion. For more information or to schedule your consultation, contact The Maine Center for Functional Medicine at (207) 941-0080.
