Medical Interests:

Patrick has a strong interest in promoting wellness and disease prevention, and treating patients through the entire spectrum of illness to wellness. In addition to traditional medical services, Patrick is excited to offer patients Functional Medicine services such as peptide therapy, IV infusion, regenerative products (stem cell, exosome, PRP) to address pain, sleep, mood disorders, inflammatory conditions, and weight management. We also offer entire Functional Medicine programs incorporating medical weight loss, bio-identical hormone replacement, body composition optimization, nutrition counseling, and sleep evaluation. 

Functional Medicine is ideal for patients who are willing to make an investment in themselves to pursue wellness by optimizing the five pillars of health: Diet, Sleep, Activity, Nutrition, and Hormones. A typical program is three months in length and involves functional lab studies, dietary counseling, medication management, exercise evaluation, and hormone optimization if needed. Patients typically move better, feel better, use less or no prescription medications, and have a greater sense of wellness. Incorporating aesthetics into a functional medicine program is a great way to look as well as you feel! We can add services such as the PRP (vampire) facial to any program.

Personal Interests: Spending time with family, golfing, biking, cooking and traveling.

We want to let you know that we are in constant contact with the Minnesota Department of Health, we are staying up-to-date with the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO).

If you have an upcoming appointment and you are experiencing upper respiratory symptoms, flu-like symptoms travelled internationally within the last two weeks or if you’ve been in contact with those confirmed with the coronavirus, please call the office and reschedule your appointments for a later date. This will help us protect patients and staff that do not experience any symptoms

For your safety, the safety of other patients and the safety of our staff, please limit the number of visitors you bring to the clinic. You will be allowed to bring one support person. We do not recommend bringing children to your appointment. Patients coming into the clinic for an appointment will have their temperature taken before entering our office and a few screening questions will be asked by our medical staff.

We do offer virtual visits. This service will allow us to connect, screen and if appropriate treat you from the comfort of your home.

How it works:

  • Call our office at (612) 987-0775 and speak to staff about scheduling time between 9 am and 4 pm for a virtual visit.
  • The staff member will then email you a link to the website, where you can access the “Virtual Exam Room” via your computer tablet or smartphone.
  • This is a covered service with most insurance companies including Medicare, however, if it is not covered by your plan, then there will be an additional fee.
  • At the scheduled time, you and your provider will access the virtual exam room and conduct your visit.
