Dedication. Compassion. Innovation. Trust. It's all about discovering Potomac Health & Wellness (PHW) for unparalleled Functional Medicine that is well within your reach. We are well known for successfully treating patients with a wide range of acute to chronic medical issues and subtle to complex health conditions. Unlike conventional medicine, we precisely diagnose and treat the root causes of illness, not just medicate to suppress symptoms. Total healing for optimal health is only possible when the root cause(s) of illness(es) are addressed.
Tick-borne Lyme Disease - the stealthy "Great Imposter" or "Great Imitator" mimics a spectrum of health and mental conditions, from sleep and fatigue disorders to arthritis and to depression and dementia. Lyme Disease often presents with flu-like symptoms that are frequently misdiagnosed or un-diagnosed by most health care providers. For example, summer flu-like symptoms that test negative for the COVID-19 coronavirus should then be tested for Lyme Disease that most health care providers overlook. Similarly, tick-borne co-infections are also frequently misdiagnosed or un-diagnosed by most health care providers. For example, Babesiosis, the most common tick-borne co-infection, often presents with malaria-like symptoms that often get mistaken for malaria.
We understand the inter-related, integrated core body systems and how their function can be naturally restored to further prevent, even reverse, many chronic illnesses. Unlike the conventional medicine treatment model, our uniquely holistic health care approach harmonizes functional, integrative, complementary, restorative, alternative, and even traditional medicine elements. We investigate a spectrum of selective health factors, including genetics, immunity, gut health, metabolic pathways, toxins, parasites, etc., as well as diet and lifestyle personalized analysis, to gain the big picture of your health. We precisely identify any hidden, underlying, stealth health issues or medical conditions that require our in-depth medical attention and expertise. We are always continuously pursuing new, cutting-edge natural treatments to reduce, even eliminate, patient pharmaceutical medications altogether, as we continually enhance our integrative Functional Medicine knowledge and expertise to further benefit our patients. We accurately diagnose and treat our patients by precisely orchestrating science with nature and data-driven research with action. PHW uniquely evaluates selective health factors, including genetics, gut health, metabolic pathways, nutritional deficiencies, toxins, parasites, etc. Poor diet and toxic lifestyles cause chronic inflammation leading to illness(es) and disease(s). We partner with highly specialized, boutique medical labs and testing facilities to accurately identify underlying bio-markers of illness(es), including inflammation, oxidative stress, and impaired immunity. We personalize bio-medical treatments, through a wide range of conventional and integrative modalities, including detoxification, lifestyle management, and nutritional therapy through diet optimization and high quality, medical-grade, nutraceutical supplements specific to your unique composition, needs, and health conditions. We closely guide our patients to make the necessary wholesome diet and holistic lifestyle changes to naturally support their optimal health and promote lifelong wellness. PHW is your dedicated health care patient advocate. We also closely coordinate care with your other health care providers to better manage your health care from a 360 degree perspective.
PHW is a compelling alternative to conventional health care, from traditional private practices and large commercial health care systems, to newer retail-based and online pop-up health care entities. First, we distinguish ourselves as a relationship-based, holistic health care practice that truly values the special connection with our patients. Unlike impersonal commercial health care, we take all the time necessary to get to know you and your health concerns, and to earn your comfort, confidence, and trust. Second, our patients always get seen by Dr. Malik, not rotating providers or clinical staff as other health care practices. Third, our no rush office appointments and virtual visits are allotted a generous amount of time to closely engage with you and to maximize your active patient participation and treatment compliance - proven, potent co-enablers for healthier outcomes. Fourth, as our patient, we are always here for you, every step of the way on your path of natural balance restoration and healing to your lifelong journey towards lasting wellness.
PHW charges our patients reasonable office visit and Telehealth virtual visit fees for personalized, concierge-level health care. Our office and virtual visits fees are always determined on a case-by-case basis, not a fee schedule, because we see a spectrum of patient medical conditions and medical complexities daily. Therefore, the patient medical condition(s) and level of medical complexities presented, along with our provider's time for the duration of the office appointment or virtual visit, and pre-appointment review of patient medical information, determines our patients' office visit and virtual visit fees. Please inquire before-hand with us about your estimated office visit or virtual visit fees for further clarification. PHW does not charge our patients any expensive recurring practice membership, retainer, or subscription fees as most concierge medicine practices and online healthcare service providers do. On an annual basis, our patients typically pay substantially less for all of their their self-pay office or virtual visit fees combined, than one year of annual or monthly concierge practices memberships, retainers, or online health care service providers subscriptions fees. PHW also offers complimentary patient convenience amenities including:
- No wait, no rush Telehealth virtual visits
- No wait, no rush in-person office appointments
- Always get seen by our Board-Certified Internist every time
- Premium patient portal - with unlimited after hours office access
