At The Real Gut Doctor, our #1 priority is to help you finally overcome your chronic wellness issues.
Unlike most conventional medicine practitioners, we look at lifestyle and contributing factors that may have caused your symptoms. Through advanced lab testing, we discover what is causing the imbalances that have kept you stuck in a chronic illness cycle so you can finally break free.
Our Real Gut Doctor Roadmap is a unique approach to help motivated adults in their 40s, 50s and beyond struggling with cardiometabolic, hormonal and digestive issues regain their energy, edge and peak performance so they can enjoy a well-balanced, productive life looking and feeling their absolute best… without extreme lifestyle changes or lifelong dependence on prescription drugs.
We partner with each client to achieve these steps, starting with the Review Phase:
Every client's situation is different, but we always seek to rapidly reduce the severity of your symptoms and then initiate a personalized treatment plan that will completely resolve your remaining symptoms over the course of the next 6-12 months.
A free 15-minute discovery consult via phone with our Patient Care Director to identify the key problems.
Paid 25-minute intake visit with Dr. Mark to review your history, labs and discuss options.
Care is delivered over a 6-12 month intensive sprint, with additional follow-up as needed.
Our collaborative care approach focuses on building lifelong health skills that serve you and your entire family – to improve your lifestyle habits which directly impact your health and even emotional well-being.
You'll learn about health topics around gut health, detox, weight loss, chronic conditions, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and obesity – and how to adapt your lifestyle, habits and environment for optimal wellness that lasts a lifetime.
Every client's health journey is unique, so if you'd like to explore specific questions or whether our approach is even right for you, then apply for your free discovery call. Our patient coordinator is standing by, happy to answer any questions you have.
My mother had brain surgery 4 years ago and ever since then, it's been a battle to find her a specialist who can recommend supplements that can help her heal without prescription drugs. We made a functional medicine appointment for her with Dr. Mark and he immediately knew what to recommend for her. This is the first time in 4 years that my mother did not have a bad reaction to the new supplements she tried and she actually says that she feels better when she takes them. For my family, this is great because it's one step closer to helping her body heal without prescription drugs and this has been a 4-year battle. I just stocked up on supplements for her actually. It's the perfect combination. This place has its own supplement line which is awesome!
Over the years I've visited many medical practices, with varying approaches to getting to the source of the health problem, vs. those that only treat the symptom without addressing the causes (i.e. Hospitals, Kaiser, etc... ) Dr. Jeffrey Mark and Dr. Fran are by far the most knowledgeable, smart, and technologically forward-thinking practicing practitioners in the Bay Area. They use so many state-of-the-art tools. They're constantly going to conferences to learn about all the emerging ways to really help people to be healthy; much more so than most doctors. They really know how to interpret lab values - using cutting-edge, sophisticated lab analytics - to determine all the contributing factors involved- to come up with a very complete and comprehensive way to not only fix my health problems and symptoms but also get to the root of why and all the contributing elements to the problem. I am so pleased and happy with trusting my health with everyone at All Functional Health. Every visit I feel like they truly care about helping me get better.
I'm so incredibly impressed with his Dr. Mark’s attention to detail and efforts to really get to the root cause of what was wrong. He's careful to take time with each patient and really listens to what is going on. Then he carefully decides the action plan, carefully selects the types of tests he needs to run to identify the root of the problem, and utilizes the information to get his patients well from the inside out. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients and deep down he IS genuinely a good person. So many other GI doctors just want to prescribe their patient's many medications to cover up the problems. Dr. Mark really wants to get you better! And the staff is always friendly and helpful. They go above and beyond for their patients and it makes a world of difference! Thank you!!!
I needed a new gastroenterologist to help manage my ulcerative colitis. I've seen Dr. Mark twice and he is one of the best M.D.s I've ever seen. He has suggested tests Dr. Lane never imagined to better titrate my meds and manage my disease. He is very smart, and upbeat and seems to take a personal interest in making sure my UC doesn't flare up and that the Side Effects of my medications are managed appropriately. Dr. Mark has taken a more holistic approach to my UC and suggested some dietary restrictions. They have worked miraculously and I am now off prednisone for longer than I have been in the past 8 years. I highly recommend him.
