Dr. Gina Sirchio is a primary care physician, and is additionally a Certified Clinical Nutritionist. This has given Dr. Sirchio advanced expertise in the biochemistry and physiology of the human body. This knowledge is used along with the health history, examination, laboratory findings and other measurements to restore a patient’s health. Patients often have wide-ranging unresolved symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, intestinal bloating and stomach upset. Quite often there is a nutritional need that is not being met to allow the body to become so uncomfortable. Traditional medications often are not as helpful as is needed and it is often at this time that a patient seeks further care.
Dr. Sirchio frequently addresses weight management, thyroid conditions, general fatigue, headaches, poor digestion and bloating, irritability, abnormal menstruation, infertility, fibromyaglia, diabetes and high cholesterol among other conditions.
Additionally, Dr. Sirchio will also address the athlete for optimal performance nutrition. Here, the goal is to be sure the athlete is best prepared through diet and possibly supplements to perform in their sport at their absolute best. The body’s composition, basal metabolic rate, caloric intake, quality of caloric intake and sport’s fuels are all analyzed to ensure the athlete is getting all they can out of their body. No short cuts are taken, and no illegal products are ever used.
Nutritional supplementation may be recommended for optimal recovery and health. The doctor only uses products from highly reputable and well researched companies. If a product is recommended, please complete the prescribed therapies. If you are seeking to reorder your supplements, please see the "Resources" page.
At times, a patient's best health plan may require many health professionals to cooperate over care. Referrals are made as necessary. Additionally, personal trainers may be suggested. Consideration is given to a patient's needs, personal goals, personality and budget.
