About Dr. Aaron Hartman, MD:
Dr. Hartman’s journey with functional medicine started when he and his wife adopted their first daughter from foster care.
She has cerebral palsy & countless dietary issues. They went from specialist to specialist and, even as a physician, he felt let down and confused. His daughter’s health struggles forced him to confront an uncomfortable realization: Our current healthcare system doesn’t have all the answers. His wife, however, refused to give up hope.
She ultimately pointed him to functional medicine. His daughter and other two kids began to thrive. After years in family practice, he felt called to make a dramatic shift. He now helps patients identify leverage points in key areas of their lifestyle and health that harness their body and remarkable power to heal and begin living the vibrant life they deserve. He has become the ‘go to’ doctor for difficult and hard cases in central Virginia.
As a clinical researcher, Dr. Hartman has been involved with over 60 clinical studies, he is the founder of the Virginia Research Center, and currently is serving as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Family Medicine at the VCU School of Medicine.
In 2016 he founded Richmond Integrative and Functional Medicine.
