As Women Ourselves, We Understand Your Concerns

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of health problems using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.

Dr. Tabatha will spend time with you listening to your history and looking at interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors. This process supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

What to expect at your visit

A Living Matrix is a detailed diagnostic tool that creates visual patterns to provide a comprehensive picture of a patient’s health and conditions over a lifetime. Functional Medicine Practitioners are medical detectives focused on finding the root cause of your chronic condition. Since chronic illness is multi-factorial and develops over many years, it’s necessary to dive deep into the past to find the clues needed for a personalized, whole person approach to health and healing. Completion of the Living Matrix is required to prepare Dr. Tabatha for your first visit.
75-Minute Visit – Dr. Tabatha will discuss and review your Living Matrix findings, listen to and dive deeper into your health concerns and goals, she may also order tests for additional assessment.
Follow Up Visits – Dr. Tabatha will discuss and review findings from your additional tests, explain any deficiencies or excesses, discuss a plan for achieving your health goals and recommend supplements and dietary/lifestyle changes. Subsequent appointments with Dr. Tabatha are used to determine how supplements and dietary/lifestyle changes are affecting the patient and to address what is working and what is not.
Functional Nutritionist Visit – Functional nutrition is never one-size-fits-all. In collaboration with Dr. Tabatha, your functional nutritionist, Morgan Cullen, will customize a holistic health plan that takes your unique specifications into account to trigger healing from the cellular level. Morgan will continue to track, motivate and support you for success.
Infrared Sauna and Ionic Foot Detox – These treatments are used to remove excess hormones and toxins from the body, so the body can rebalance and heal.

Dr. Tabatha Barber, DO, FACOOG, NCMP

Board-Certified OB/GYN Specializing in Functional Medicine for Women

“My specialty is Functional Medicine for Women. Through my own difficult medical issues. I realized that nutritious food, purposeful movement, stress management, and mindful living were the cure to many chronic ailments. Getting to the root cause of my patients’ issues— and truly helping them heal—is at the center of everything I do.”

Background
Dr. Tabatha is a true Spartan. She received her B.S. in Physiology with Honors from MSU and her D.O. from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. She is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology through ACOOG and is a certified Menopause Practitioner through the North American Menopause Society. Because Dr. Tabatha never stops searching for answers or settling for the status-quo, she is currently completing her functional medicine certification through The Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine. Dr. Tabatha has been helping women heal themselves for 15 years because she feels that it really is her calling. Her expertise and areas of interest include hormonal imbalances, such as thyroid disease and auto-immune issues, those struggling with weight, mood, anxiety, heavy irregular periods, PCOS, endometriosis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and painful intercourse

Interests
Dr. Tabatha has a lust for life. She has jumped off cliffs, gone swimming with stingrays, and has even met some of country music’s biggest stars such as Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, and Brothers Osborne. In 2019, she published her first book, an autobiographical fiction, From White Trash to White Coat. She enjoys living and playing on the lakeshore with her husband, six children and grandchild.

And when a specialist is required, you will have a say; and PrivaMD has the responsibility to advocate and align your healthcare providers. PrivaMD wants you to be comfortable with the quality of care that you receive. We are transparent in all that we do.
