Dr. Michael Robinson ND, MS, CFMP

Dr. Michael Robinson is an expert in natural and functional medicine and has been working in natural healthcare for the last 10 years with a focus autoimmune diseases and unexplained symptoms. He has worked alongside Medical Doctors, Chiropractors, Naturopathic Physicians, Acupuncturists and Behavioral Optometrists seeking to bring health to those without answers to their health concerns. While initially enrolled in a Pre-Pharmacy program, he saw his mother go through 10 years of chronic pain and medications as she was shuffled around to 28 different doctors and practitioners without relief. It wasn’t until she saw a Naturopathic Physician that within 6 months, her pain and medication usage had reduced by 90%. This sent Michael down a new journey to learn about everything Natural Medicine had to offer. He switched his pharmacy major to a Health Science degree, and never turned back. While in his primary care internship, he would continually see patients with autoimmune disease be dismissed by the conventional medical community, which was a shock as he was having so much success reducing their symptoms and improving their health with natural medicine. Michael has sworn to always use food first and support the body rather than suppress the symptoms with medication, and support those with autoimmune diseases that have felt like they are not getting complete answers in the conventional medical system. Now practicing as a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Michael uses food as medicine everyday to prevent disease and keep his clients functioning at optimal health. Michael completed his internship in primary care family medicine and is currently gaining nutrition clinical hours to become licensed as a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Dietetic Nutritionist in the state of IL in 2019

FAQs

I am the only doctor in Illinois with my combination of training; A Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, a Masters in Clinical Nutrition, and Certified in Functional Medicine. Many other doctors, natural or conventional, spend their time focused on trying to reduce your symptoms whether it is with drugs or supplements. I spend my time getting to the bottom of why your symptoms are there in the first place, so that we can remove these obstacles to recovery.

NDs are not able to bill insurance in Illinois like they are in other states. We will say however, we couldn't do what we do and offer the level of service that we think our patients deserve if we accepted insurance. The insurance system is what has lead to you receiving 7 minute visits at the typical doctor office you've likely experienced. The insurance company reimburses the doctor about $30 for a visit, which is why a typical MD will see 10 patients an hour. If we took insurance, we wouldn't be able to spend 1-2 hours at a time with you. Also to your benefit, because we do not have to split profits with the insurance agency, means we are able to keep costs lower, more affordable for you, and our prices will always be reflective of the service you are receiving. If price is a large concern, we do have options that can reduce your care down SIGNIFICANTLY. We want everyone to be able to afford natural medicine. Contact us for details if this help is needed.
