We sit down with Dr. Daniel Stock, the Founding Physician at PureHealth Functional Family Medicine. Dr. Stock’s office is located in Noblesville, Indiana. After 18 years of being hospital-employed, Dr. Daniel Stock has opened the doors to his new functional family medicine practice. The practice is one of only two functional family medicine practices in the state of Indiana, but is the sole practice to provide care through Direct Primary Care (DPC), and without involving health insurance.
As a DPC practice, PureHealth Functional Family Medicine enables patients to pay a flat, monthly fee for unlimited health care, while reserving their health insurance for specialty physician visits and hospitalizations.
“I want to offer my patients all that Functional Family Medicine offers at a flat price, while also providing them care when they need it,” said Dr. Daniel Stock, founding physician of PureHealth Functional Family Medicine. “The best part of functional medicine is tackling both common or acute diseases and chronic complex issues from lacerations and sore throats, to Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and even Parkinson’s Disease.”
Despite practicing for three decades, Dr. Stock has most recently learned of an innovative way of reversing Alzheimer’s Disease. He says he believes that finding out all the elements that cause a person to become ill is the best way to be able to treat a chronic disease.
“Whether my patient is battling the common cold, or Alzheimer’s Disease, my goal is to realize and achieve ‘good healthcare,’ and to that, I believe in spending more time with each patient to inform them of their options, make decisions and plan out the best, next steps” said Dr. Stock. “I firmly believe most issues can be solved by lifestyle changes if caught early enough, and in an economical way. And, DPC functional medicine allows for that to occur.”
Dr. Stock completed his undergraduate degree at Notre Dame University, his medical degree at Indiana University, and internship at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Indianapolis. He began practicing primary care in 1989. A founding diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Lipidology, Dr. Stock is also a diplomate of the American Board of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine.
