Meet Our Doctor
Type II DiabetesWe provide patients with a unique perspective on the treatment and ultimate reversal of disease. As opposed to symptomatic treatment with medications, our treatment promotes healing and proper functioning of all body systems in order to achieve optimum health.
HypothyroidismOur practitioners look beyond the usual “TSH” and “Total T4” to properly assess your thyroid condition. Due to the overwhelming physical AND mental toll these disorders take on patients, our physicians have developed unique laboratory protocols and interpretations.
Chronic FatigueWe use specific diagnostic testing to determine the stage of Adrenal Fatigue you are experiencing, and provide customized treatment to get you sleeping better than you ever have; which also means more energy for your day!
Weight LossCookie-cutter” diet programs seldom work and are difficult to get through. We focus on YOUR specific physiological barriers to weight loss and provide you with a personalized weight loss program.
Lab TestingOur practitioners use your lab results to assess nutritional status, including amino acids, fatty acids, oxidative stress, vitamin levels, mitochondrial function, food sensitivities, and heavy metals.
Autoimmune DiseaseAutoimmune diseases affect different areas of the body, causing your immune system to attack healthy cells by mistake. There are over eighty different autoimmune diseases.
“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.”
