Our Story

What Sets Us Apart

The Functional Neurology Center (The FNC) started out of one room, with a focus on caring for the whole person. And now we’ve grown to a 6,000 square foot clinic that helps more than just your brain, but also how your brain health affects your quality of life and the lives of those who love you. During your Neuro-Exam, Discovery Day, Intensive Program, or even just a single visit for a ‘tune-up’, you’ll always work one-on-one with a small team of doctors who are just as invested in your recovery as you are.


Of course, we have the latest diagnostics and high tech therapies, but your recovery hinges on more than what we know and the tools we can buy. It’s our personalized investment in your health, and a rock-solid believe that There is Hope, that sets us apart.
