Consultation with functional medicine doctor $600/hour
Many times, our patients have a medical problem like issues with hormones, gut complaints, or have been told there is no reason for the fatigue and weight gain they are experiencing. Intuitively they know there is something more. We are here to help you put all those pieces of the puzzle together. After our first visit together, our patients have a much better understanding of the way the body works as a cohesive unit. Functional medicine differs from traditional medicine in that we focus on root cause of any disease or complaint and treat the entire body as a whole. Areas our practice specializes in:
- Gut Health: Anything gut related such as bloating, constipation, diarrhea, SIBO, reflux, leaky gut and much more.
- Women’s Hormones: including pre-menopause, peri-menopause and post menopause, PCOS, infertility, heavy periods, no periods, vaginal dryness, low libido, hair loss, acne, and much more.
- Adrenals and Fatigue: Thyroid issues, low energy, stress, blood sugar problems, Insomnia, and much more.
Achieving optimal health takes more than a 15-minute office visit.
You deserve to be seen, heard, and supported.
What Is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine, at its basic definition, looks at the root cause of illness. While we look to undo the damage of the presenting complaints, doctors might integrate traditional and complementary medicine to achieve healing. It is not unusual for this practice to spend time discussing a personalized advanced medical plan for you that includes diet, exercise, sleep, meditation, supplements as well as medications, if needed. Gone are the days of using a simple script to treat your concerns.

Hi, I’m Dr. Basima
As the founder of Being Functional and a primary care physician of over 25 years, I’m no stranger to disease. I’ve always had an inclination towards prevention and taking a common-sense approach to health care, but it wasn’t until I saw the improvement that lifestyle medicine, diet, and exercise had on my chronic disease patients that changed the way I view medicine.
After integrating functional medicine into my traditional practice, my patients began to feel and function better. There is a little part of everyone I talk to, a little intuition, that tells them their gut feeling is right. Lifestyle does matter. But what diet, what changes, and what supplements can achieve this?
That’s where I come in. Because there is a better way to health that involves fewer scripts and more sensibility.
A Functional Medicine Physician that integrates…
diet, exercise, meditation, lifestyle, and thought into your prescription for wellness.

Have you ever worked with someone who you felt certain was doing exactly what they were called to do? That is my experience of Dr. Basima Williams. With each interaction, I felt cared for and very understood. There were aspects of my health where she applauded me and I could rest in what I was doing to promote my well-being. At times, Dr. Williams challenged to me to increase my participation and commitment to my own well-being with changes in my health habits. Whether maintenance or change was warranted, Basima partnered with me from a place of mutuality – we were working together. Four years later, I am thriving and very, very grateful for her care.

I am so lucky to have Dr. Basima Williams in my life. About 20 years ago, I had severe back pain. I went to the ER twice and they told me I had a urinary track infection and gave me pain killers and antibiotics. I followed up with Dr. Williams because I was not getting better and had really bad pain. After talking with me and examining me, Dr. Williams knew it was much more then a infection. She sent me to the hospital and had a couple of tests done, after which I found out that I had huge kidney stones. She called one of the best urologists in San Diego and got me in to see him quickly. Until I saw Dr. Williams, I felt like other doctors just wanted to prescribe me something new just to get me out of the office. It was not until I met Dr. Williams that I actually felt that someone was listening to me. It has been 20 years later and I still cannot say enough great things about her! I am forever grateful.

Dr. Basima Williams is an abosolute Godsend! I ran into Dr. Basima happenstance during a business meeting. I had been suffering from a rash for years [but] after talking with her and learning more about functional medicine, I knew I had to see her as my doctor. After an initial consultation and exhaustive intake, she determined that [my] skin problem [was] caused by a gut issue called leaky gut. She worked on my diet, gave me 4 supplements and in just a couple of weeks, the rash was almost gone. Now, months later, the rash is still gone. The difference in this type of medicine and care is night and day. I had gone years with this rash, went to multiple doctors, including my own sister, and all I ever got was a cream prescription. Now, I understand about treating the cause of the problem and not just the problem. What regular doctors couldn’t figure out in a decade, she figured out in one session and provided a real solution to fix it and not just mask the problem. She’s a life saver and I can’t recommend her enough!
