“Dr. Riser was directly responsible for my care and program that improved my over all health. He was always interested in my progress, continually made adjustments to assist me, he was always professional and thoroughly enjoy [our] relationship.”

“I have been seeing Dr. Riser for just over a year because I am diabetic and I wanted to get off of my many medicines. At least one of them can cause pancreatic cancer and that scared me. When I first met Dr. Riser, I was impressed by his professionalism. Later, I realized just how smart he was when it comes to foods and natural medicines that helped me eliminate the majority of my medications. I am sure that I will be able to eliminate all of them if I continue following his regimen, which I intend to do. Dr. Riser knows his chosen field very well and that inspired me with confidence to know I could succeed. I finally have a waist and I feel so much better than I did when I first met Dr. Riser. I gladly drove the 3-hour drive to his office weekly, because I knew I was in capable, concerned hands. He is truly a professional and a doctor I can trust.”

“I highly recommend Functional Health Center of the Carolinas. I was skeptical at first but with Dr. Riser’s help my disabled husband lowered ALL of his blood work into normal range. Very impressed! Thank you, Dr. Riser.”

After many unsuccessful attempts to lose weight and reverse my diabetes with other medically-supported programs, I was beyond thrilled to find Dr. Corey Riser who helped me achieve these seemingly impossible-to-attain goals. Dr. Riser provided me with the guidance, materials, and products to be successful. I am indebted to him and his staff for assisting me in being successful.

I saw a couple videos Dr. Riser posted on Instagram and decided to check out the clinic. I already consider myself a fairly healthy individual but have a family history of cholesterol issues and diabetes so I wanted to be proactive and get testing as well as work exclusively with a Functional Medicine doctor on wellness. So far so good! I’ve been following recommendations for a couple months now and have a feeling 2019 will be my best year yet. Explosive energy and my lab work looks great! Thanks Dr. Riser.

I’m writing this review for my aunt who came to Dr. Riser. We attended one of his dinner events on Type II Diabetes to figure out how we could help my aunt get her blood sugar under control as she was on insulin and not making any progress. We left the dinner with our mouths wide open! It was information we had never heard about this disease and were willing to give it a shot. To say she is ecstatic about where her blood sugars are is an understatement. Dr. Riser truly gets to the bottom of health issues and was able to pinpoint why her diabetes symptoms were so out of control. I myself am now even a patient for wellness! Great staff and great practice.

Great experience! The staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Riser’s functional medicine approach to disease/health is what healthcare should be. He has true passion for getting to the route of health issues and has impressed me with his knowledge and confidence. The functional medicine approach involves a lot of lab testing, which is a good starting point to a treatment plan, but the patient’s input is a huge part of it and Dr. Riser truly listens, researches and adjusts to fine tune things to get you to your optimal health. I’ve been seeing Dr. Riser for 4 months and after my diagnoses of Hashimotos (thyroid/autoimmune disease) as well as severe adrenal fatigue, my symptoms have improved significantly. Through diet, supplements and lab testing, this approach combined with a great doctor has changed my life. From a chiropractic standpoint, Dr. Riser was able to eliminate my lower back pain in one session and no other Chiropractor was able to do that in one, let alone multiple sessions. I highly recommend anyone suffering from diabetes, thyroid issues, or just symptoms you just can’t get to the bottom of to contact Dr. Riser and invest in your health now! It’s well worth the investment and the time he spends with you is invaluable and cannot be compared to anything else.

What an amazing experience! I originally came to Dr. Riser with fatigue and typical Thyroid issues. I wasn’t getting any help and even though I was working out constantly, my weight was barely budging. I decided to go a Functional Medicine route with Dr. Riser and it was absolutely life changing. Real root cause health care with real results. Never looking back!

I really love that Dr Riser wants to get to the root cause of the symptoms you have. He does thorough testing and goes over results so you can understand. Then he tackles your issues so you will get healthy and feel better. He is treating me for many gut issues and helps with my way of eating. I have lost 11lbs since I started and I’m feeling better. I’m not in as much pain and have more energy to do things I was too tired to do before.. The staff is awesome and very friendly. I highly recommend Functional Health Center and Dr Riser if you want to feel better and get to the bottom of your health issues.

As a person who’s on the go constantly with multiple businesses, I began to notice significant fatigue, sleep, and gut issues. Googling my symptoms led me down a road of what seemed like hundreds of treatments for candida, leaky gut, chronic fatigue, Diabetes(too young for that!) and more. I reached out to Dr. Riser in hopes that I could get to the exact cause of my symptoms and get me back the energy I desperately needed to perform! He performed REAL diagnostic testing and REAL protocols that got me back to a place health wise that my regular doctor never even came close to getting me! I feel so much better and the future looks bright! Highly highly recommend for anyone who is feeling the same way I was!
