Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners like Dr. Lynn FLowers MD spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. (Visit the Institute for Functional Medicine.)
How is Functional Medicine different than other practitioners?
Flowers Medical Group in Atlanta is focused on helping you live healthy as you age, not only without disease but with vitality and enjoyment. As a functional medicine provider, we integrate everything in your life to get the “big picture” of what could or might be causing symptoms of disease. This includes getting a detailed history, physical exam, specialized labs, dietary intake, fitness assessment, social history, stress level, and genetic analysis to predict and reverse disease.
Are the Treatments backed by Science?
Dr. Lynn Flowers and other Functional Medicine practitioners use research based studies for the treatment of patients. An individualized plan is designed for each patient that might include: vitamin or herbal supplementation, bioidentical hormones, fitness prescription, stress reduction, and dietary changes to assist you in aging well and preventing disease. We combine traditional Western medical practices with integrative medicine to provide you with the best overall care that you deserve.

The Flowers group has been a life saver! They have helped me over come 7 years of illness in almost 4 months! So thankful for all of their knowledge and the compassion they have for their patients.
After years (decades) of thinking I was healthy (read: macho American male), and frustration of bad hormone levels, I became a patient of Dr. Flowers. In my fourth month of treatment, my body chemistry is within normal ranges, I have lost over 30 lbs., I have noticeably more energy, and am motivated to exercise every day. I am excited to see what I can be after year under Dr. Flowers care.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Flowers for about 9 months and I love the personal attention I get from him and the office staff! I am never rushed out nor have I ever had the “next” feeling you get with so many traditional Doctors’ offices these days. I love the more natural whole body approach to healing and would recommend him to anyone!
Dr Flowers and His nurse, Misty, are an amazing team. They are thorough, responsive and do an exceptional job of educating you so that you are motivated to be an active participant in your Plan of care. This is the first time my hormones have been balanced since before my total hysterectomy in 2004. I've suffered with severe migraine headaches since age 9 and have tried everything from medicines to acupuncture. After 4 months of HRT and herbal therapies with Dr Flowers my headaches are few and far between a 90% improvement. I'm still on the journey but there is not doubt that my quality of life has improved.
Love the welcoming atmosphere created by the staff and Dr. Flowers.
They gave me hope that I would be overcoming my issues and feeling better soon.
I love the individual attention I received from Dr. Flowers and the time he allotted for my visit.
There is a lot of one on one time with both Doctor and Nurses and I feel that my concerns and comments are heard.
liked the personal attention given by Misty and Dr. Flowers. I appreciated the hour block of time where I could sit down and really go over all the lab results and treatment plan. Never felt rushed. Always feel like
