MD, FAAFP, ABiHM, ABoIM, ABFM, IFMCP
Dr. Jennifer Sosnowski chose her field because she loves interacting with people and sleuthing what’s wrong with them. It’s never the same day twice and, in functional medicine, it’s never the same problem twice – a similar underlying cause can have a completely different overlying diagnosis.
She treats each patient as if they were a family member and tries to meet them at the level they need – nurturing, guiding, directing or focusing them as they need. She wants people to have the ultimate package in personalized, timely, accessible care. Her goal is to surpass the patient’s ideals for excellent care and service, along with giving them the knowledge to keep themselves healthy and away from doctor’s offices so they can enjoy living.
