Babak Kanani, MD practices Integrative and Functional Medicine. After working for many years in conventional hospitals and primary care clinics, he began to look for the underlying cause of illness and imbalance in his patient’s lives. Most recently he cared for patients at the Sutter Institute for Health and Healing in Marin and Sonoma Counties deepening his knowledge and skills.
He has proficiency in a wide range of therapies, including nutrition, lifestyle recommendations, herbs, nutritional supplements, and hormonal replacement. He believes each person is an individual with unique needs, and creates an individualized program that meets each person’s health challenges. He acknowledges the healing power of the heart and takes the time to listen to his patients.
By combining conventional testing methods with specialized labs, he can diagnose difficult to treat conditions and uncover hidden sources of illness.
Dr. Kanani is board certified in Internal Medicine and by the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine. He is in the process of being certified by the Institute for Functional Medicine and actively advances his knowledge at various Functional Medicine conferences.
