Our team is led by Dr. Dorothy Sprecher, who discovered functional medicine on her own health journey. She opened the NEOIFM in 1997, and is one of the longest-practicing functional medicine doctors in our area. Dr. Cherie Lechner-Lunato provides chiropractic care, and Dr. Lilly Thompson practices psychology here in our office. Nutritionist Bob Iafelice and health coach Kate Carter help patients implement dietary and lifestyle adjustments if they are required to improve health.

"I have been visiting Dr. Sprecher since 2006- when she discovered that I have a gluten allergy. I had been suffering from many of the symptoms of a food allergy and had been checked by a variety other physicians. Not one ever suggested that I might have a food allergy. All wanted to prescribe medication or additional exams. Dr. Sprecher changed the trajectory of my health. I have been GF since March 2006. And making this one small change in my diet altered my health - from questionable to good! I have recommended the NEO Institute of Functional Medicine to friends and family. Dr. Sprecher does not disappoint. She takes the time to truly understand your health issues. Over the past 12 years, she is the physician that I truly trust. Thank you Dr. Sprecher!"
