Maggie Gama, M.D
FOUNDING FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE PHYSICIAN
Dr. Maggie Gama is certified in Functional Medicine. Her residency training is in anatomical and clinical pathology as well as internal medicine. Her training also includes two post residency fellowships in surgical pathology as well as hematopathology.
She practiced pathology for over 10 years specializing in the diagnosis of leukemia and lymphoma. Most recently, she has experience in integrative Natural and Holistic Cancer Therapies. Her pursuit in the field of Functional Medicine began in the journey to learn more and heal herself and family members afflicted with autoimmune disorders. Her pathology background and training is important as cutting-edge lab testing is often implemented to uncover the root cause of disease.
Her training in clinical pathology gives her an advantage in interpreting these often complex lab results. Also, having a greater understanding of the nature and biology of cancers, including genomic attributes has given her an edge when treating patients that wish to take a more holistic approach to healing.
Dr. Gama’s greatest passion is in disease prevention. Many of today’s chronic diseases are associated with poor lifestyle choices, environmental toxins, and various infectious diseases that can wreak havoc on our bodies even years later.
She seeks to create hope for those suffering from chronic disease, including cancer, and to promote wellness, health, and healing through non-toxic, natural treatments in the form of IV therapies, alternative healing, supplements, and lifestyle changes.
Dr. Gama founded Synergy Lifestyle Medicine to reflect values of unparalleled comprehensive and personalized patient care that focuses on understanding and addressing each patient’s unique healthcare needs. She believes that wellness is the result of a synergy between the mind, body, and spirit, which can only be established through genuine, compassionate, and unbreakable bonds established through compassionate care and genuine patient partnership.
Michele Wallace, RN, BSN
FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE NURSE
Michele Wallace has been a Registered Nurse for over 13 years. She has been working specifically in Integrative Natural and Holistic Cancer Therapies and patient care services for 10 years. Her inspiration to focus her career on Integrative Natural and Holistic Cancer Therapies came as she determined through hospital experience, that traditional medicine models were not providing care as effectively and comprehensively as possible with the resources available.
Michele describes that the Integrative Medicine model gave her an entirely new perspective on medicine and that the field gives her a great sense of fulfillment and accomplishment knowing that patients are receiving the best, most comprehensive care where the root cause of disease is at the center of disease management. Michele has three beautiful daughters; Chelsea, 21, Hannah, 25, and Lauren 27. She is currently pursuing her Family Nurse Practitioner graduate degree. Her goal is to be a part of growing movement to change the way we look at health and disease. She wants to help educate people about health and disease, what it takes to earn health, and why disease occurs. Michele joined Synergy Lifestyle Medicine because she believes that health care is more than just a pill.
She believes that healthcare is a journey that encompasses physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being that can only be accomplished through unique and compassionate bonds with each and every patient.
