About Forum Health

Let us help identify and correct the root causes

Let’s redefine healthcare — together.

From our headquarters in Flint, Michigan and all over the nation, our community of practitioners is setting a new standard for healthcare. Our novel approach combines the powerful principles of functional and integrative medicine with advanced medical treatments and technology, data analytics, and collaborative relationships.


True health takes work. But it’s easier once you understand what’s happening in the body. That’s why we look at the whole you — exploring genetics, environment, and lifestyle factors like nutrition, sleep, and exercise.

True care is more than sick visits. We’re devoted to finding the source of symptoms, instead of just masking them. So we take our time to listen and learn your story. Together, we’ll make a comprehensive care plan that drives you toward your health goals. Then we’ll stick with you throughout the journey.

Built through trust and understanding, Forum Health relationships mean care that’s personal, innovative, and — above all — effective.

People are saying, ‘I want more. I want better health. I want health that’s targeted to me. I don’t just want to take care of how I feel; I want to find the root cause of why I’m feeling this way.’
