About Dr. Stillman
I became a doctor to help people achieve their highest potential. Whether you are struggling with a chronic illness or are seeking the next level of performance in your work, your relationships, or your vocations, I can help you achieve the excellent health that you desire and deserve. You probably realize that modern medicine is focused on “treatments” rather than “cures.” I have little interest in “treating” disease – I am determined to cure disease. Hippocrates, one of history’s greatest physicians, said, “The physician treats, but nature cures.” And I do believe this is possible, even in seemingly, “incurable,” cases. This is why, after completing medical school and specializing in Internal Medicine, I chose to study natural and functional medicine. When you work with me, we develop a comprehensive plan to restore and optimize your health, using the most scientifically advanced diagnostics and therapeutics available, alongside ancient healing practices that have stood the test of time.
My interest in optimal health and performance began with my own experiences as a patient. As a child, I suffered from ear and sinus infections, and ADHD. Despite going to the best doctors and having access to excellent medical care, I continued to struggle to be healthy. I was frustrated by the unseen forces that I knew were holding me back. My curiosity grew so intense that I decided to become a physician. I studied Environmental Health at Connecticut College and received my medical doctorate from the University of Virginia. I specialized in Internal Medicine, completing a three-year residency at Maine Medical Center. Over the course of my career, I have been fortunate to study with some of the greatest minds in medicine. My mentors have included naturopaths, acupuncturists, chiropractors, and homeopaths, as well as medical doctors. As I learned more and more about the true determinants of health, I began to achieve higher and higher levels of performance and well-being for myself. I take the best of many disciplines and therapeutic modalities, and work with you to develop a comprehensive plan to achieve your health and performance goals.
Today, I work with people all over the world. I use a systemtic approach that addresses all aspects of your diet, lifestyle, mindset, and environment that impact your health. When you work with me, I don’t just “treat” you, I teach you how to live a healthy life. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach either – everything is tailored to your unique case, from your diet to your exercise routine. Hippocrates said that, “The greatest medicine of all is teaching people how not to need it.” That is exactly what I do. Apply to work with me today.
