What Our Community Has to Say

Excellent care. RIFM strives to treat the cause rather than address the symptoms.

Dr. Hartman has helped me and my family for several years. He is a great integrative and functional medicine doctor, and has a wealth of knowledge on how to address chronic health conditions. I highly recommend Dr. Hartman.

If you have an inflammatory, autoimmune or post viral illness, this is the place to go. The complexity of these “mystery” illnesses requires time that normal doctors are’t going to take. Nor are they trained to do so. With proper testing, they will discover what is triggering your illness and then treat it. It’s going to take time to heal and they are right there with you all of the way. All of the staff are friendly and knowledgable. Its a different kind of healthcare and yes, its worth the cost.

Having been in the medical field coming up on 3 decades, I unfortunately found myself on the other side of the fence. After almost 2 years of being sick, going from one specialist to another, and no one could tell me why. My health continued to decline, until I came to see Dr. Hartman. He has this gift, an amazing ability to put all the pieces together and connect all the dots. I am grateful that he has chosen to share his gift in such a way that others can benefit from it. Not only did he figure out what was wrong, but is treating it and helping to restore me back as much as possible to where i was before I got sick. Once you seek this level of care, you will never look back. Thank you so much Dr. Hartman, I am forever grateful to you and your wonderful staff!

I'm 67 years old and have never experienced this level of comprehensive, professional, and reliable medical service anywhere in the Richmond area or any other place I've ever lived for that matter. The environment is friendly, warm, and relaxing. The medical staff is incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and talented. It's well worth the investment in yourself.

I went today for my first appointment. The practice is better than any that I have experienced and Jodi Caddell is the perfect addition! Jodi spends the time needed with her patients and more importantly, Jodi Caddell is kind and compassionate, something that you rarely find today. I am excited to see how my health improves now that I am going to Richmond Functional and Integrative!
