Our Approach

People turn to the Riordan Clinic to restore, improve, and maintain health.

For more than 47 years our providers combine the best of orthomolecular, functional, naturopathic, and integrative medicine to determine the underlying or root causes of co-learner (patient) symptoms and formulate customized patient care plans to arrest and reverse those conditions.

The Riordan Clinic was established as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization with missions in research, provider education, and patient education.

Our Approach

Rather than focusing on a diagnosis and managing symptoms, our goal is to discover the root causes of disease. Simply put, we aren’t just looking to label what is wrong with you – we want to find out why the disease occurred in the first place and then to address those causes.

We have over four decades of experience in successfully treating a wide variety of sustained illnesses including:

  • Cancer
  • Lyme Disease
  • Heart Disease
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Gut Issues
  • Food Sensitivities
  • and more

Some of our most encouraging success stories are with patients who have a variety of long-term symptoms but have been unable to get a diagnosis. We seek to identify the underlying causes of illness and correct them using nutrient balancing and other therapies.

Symptoms like fatigue, rash, constipation, stiffness, swelling, depression, and many others, are the manifestation of unbalanced chemistry within the body. At the Riordan Clinic, we know that the nutrients in our body control our chemistry, and if our inventory is low or in excess of some nutrients, symptoms are inevitable. For this reason, our patients, called co-learners, start with a baseline nutrient inventory panel ordered so that the doctors can learn more about their individuality.

Our approach is to treat the whole person, beginning with a thorough review of medical history and a comprehensive patient evaluation. This yields a highly customized holistic treatment plan that will put you on the path to better health. As a patient at the Riordan Clinic, you will be fully involved in the discovery process of getting well. By taking an active role in your recovery, you will understand the systemic causes of your illness better, thus enacting a positive impact on your health.

Many patients use the Riordan Clinic exclusively to address their health issues, others choose to integrate our therapies with those of their traditional doctor. We provide the ultimate form of healing – hope. Whether you are at the beginning of your path to wellness or you have been challenged for many years, we can help. Take charge of your health by becoming a patient at the Riordan Clinic today.
