The founder of Parsley Health discusses wellness tips and the future of medicine.
Experts are saying that in 2017, there will be a "resist health care authority" attitude in favor of a more personalized approach to health. At the helm of this emerging trend is Dr. Robin Berzin, the founder of Parsley Health, a first-of-its-kind, high-techmedical practice, with six physicians spanning New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. "It's like the Uber of functional medicine," says Berzin, explaining that a functional approach is one that aims not just to treat any diseases or illnesses but also to prevent them. Like Uber, Parsley uses technology to perpetually monitor and improve what they do and offers a constant on-demand service. "Our members get unlimited messaging and continuous care from our doctors and coaches all year long," says Berzin. "We only offer an all-inclusive membership because we know that you don’t get fit going to the gym once and you don’t get healthy going to the doctor once either."
The gist: highly trained doctors and health coaches work as a team to curate your ultimate nutrition, supplement, exercise, lifestyle, and medication plan all in one place. Instead of going to several different specialists, Parsley Health functions as a one-stop shop for the fit and healthy to take their wellness to the next level. Parsley has since expanded to the West Coast and is continuing to grow.
