Meet Debbie Hernandez
PA-C & Certified Functinal Nutrition Coach
Hi, my name is Deborah Hernandez, PA-C. I am a Physician Assistant who has been practicing medicine for the last 20 years and before that, I practiced as a registered nurse for 28 years. The last 5 years God led me in a very different direction in my career. I learned about functional medicine which is complete departure from my understanding of the practice of medicine of the previous 40 plus years. In functional medicine, the goal is to find the root cause of the symptoms or “disease”. Symptoms are simply the smoke or the manifestation of the inflammation or fire which is at the root of almost every chronic disease you can name. It isn’t a quick fix to suppress those symptoms and perhaps make the patient feel somewhat better, but instead is a deep dive into the individual to see if the trigger and and ongoing causes of those symptoms can be identified and eliminated.
