Chicago’s One-Stop Solution for Type 2 Diabetes

Offering cutting-edge personalized nutrition and treatment plans to promote optimal, long-lasting health.

 

Your lofty health and wellness goals are completely within reach when you utilize authentic coaching strategies and cutting-edge, nutrition-based treatment plans tailor-made for your body’s individual needs.
In today’s hustle and bustle, it can be hard to find the time it takes to make your health a priority, which means your health goals are often put on the backburner.  
Prescribing pharmaceuticals is a quick-fix, but patients should learn how to use their lifestyle to combat disease for good.
Your symptoms can be misleading, and it’s easy for some practitioners to slap a label on your condition without doing the proper testing.

Convenience

There can be a lot of anxiety surrounding your doctor’s appointments from the commute to long waits in the lobby. Our practice is dedicated to providing convenient scheduling and anxiety-free appointments with our HIPAA-compliant patient video chat. Get the care you need from the comfort of your own home!

Accountability

We know that you have what it takes to be an active player in regaining control over your health. That’s why we give you a personalized care plan and regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

Thorough, State-of-the-Art Testing

At our practice, we know that if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it may not always be a duck. We go the extra mile to use our thorough, cutting-edge testing to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to match.

Customized Solutions Tailored to Body’s Unique Needs

One-size-fits-all solutions to treatment do not take your personal physiological needs into account. But true and optimal healing can only come when your unique imbalances are addressed. You deserve the best, and the best is an individual treatment plan tailor-made to meet your specific needs.

Why Concierge Diabetes?

From the practitioners to the staff, every member at Concierge Diabetes is dedicated to making sure that our patients receive an unparalleled level of care and attention. At our clinic, we’re not about the one-and-done, in-and-out appointments. We want to take time and get to know you, hear your story, and set realistic and straightforward health goals and milestones that will encourage you to take on the road ahead with confidence. Don’t let your frustrating symptoms get you down; your situation is not a lost cause, and we are determined to equip you with everything you need to regain control over your health.

 

Personalized Care

You’re an individual with unique needs, and it’s about time you have a treatment plan to match. Our aim is to partner with you to uncover any imbalances, sensitivities, or triggers that throw your system out of whack and lead your body into an onslaught of chaos. From there, we can address the underlying causes of your symptoms and begin to promote optimal healing.

Telemedicine (and meetups!)

Easy were the days when doctors made house calls to accommodate your busy schedule. Well, we’re bringing back hassle-free scheduling and anxiety-free appointments with our HIPAA-compliant telemedicine platform. Getting treatment has never been easier. With nutrition counseling and general appointments available through private, secure video chat, you no longer have to worry about your commute to the doctor’s office or long waits in the lobby, as the care you need is available from the comfort of your own living room.

Dr. Powell

Dr. Richard Powell attended U of Idaho for human biology Bs. He then proceeded to attend National College of Chiropractic where he graduated with his Doctorate in Chiropractic in 1984. He promptly opened Powell Chiropractic Clinic in 1985 and has been in practice ever since.

Following some routine blood work, Dr. Powell discovered that he was suffering from high blood pressure, high blood sugar, thyroid dysfunction, and high cholesterol. He was pressured to begin self-administering 4 different prescriptions to combat his mounting illness, but instead, he enrolled in Functional Medicine University in 2007 and graduated in 2009 with the knowledge he needed to heal his body from the inside out using a whole systems approach.

In an effort to share the healing power of Functional Medicine with the world, he opened Greater Chicago Functional Health in 2012, where he developed a passion for reversing the irreversible. Witnessing the profound impact that reversing type 2 diabetes had on the lives of his patients inspired him to open Concierge Diabetes in 2019.  

When Dr. Powell is not practicing Functional Medicine, he serves as a medical examiner for the DOT. Dr. Powell is a certified scuba diver and enjoys exploring the depths of the ocean in his free time.

Why functional medicine?

Conventional medicine is typically aimed at your symptoms– how to manage them and keep them at bay. Functional medicine, on the other hand, approaches health and well-being by looking at the whole body to see how all of our systems are intertwined and impact each other.

Through cutting-edge technology and groundbreaking testing, functional medicine practitioners seek to pinpoint the underlying source of imbalance and inflammation. Only when you treat the patient as an individual and discover his or her unique root causes can you address the condition with a personalized treatment plan tailor-made to fit the patient’s individual needs. This is the only path to true healing.

Covering up patients’ symptoms with quick-fix, Band-Aid solutions is not helping them foster or maintain a high quality of life. We aim higher; we want to eliminate the symptoms by attacking the root imbalance so that they can get back to feeling like themselves again for good.
