Dr. Jeffrey Fine is a board-certified gastroenterologist, a member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and a member of the Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine with over 28 years of experience in the treatment and diagnosis of digestive diseases. As a gut microbiome expert, Dr. Fine is one of only a handful of gastroenterologists in the U.S. that blend traditional therapies with a functional medicine approach that yields better and faster results for his patients.
His interest in food sensitivity and other lifestyle medicine approaches began many years ago when his patients were not feeling better with traditional drug therapies. Dr. Fine listened to his patients when they reported that certain food interactions made their symptoms worse or intolerable. Through his own extensive research, he began studying the correlation between the digestion of specific food ingredients, such as gluten, wheat, barley, dairy, eggs, etc. and gastrointestinal disease.
Dr. Fine spent many years exploring this connection and realized the enormous impact that food has on one’s digestive health. He discovered several labs that test patients for food sensitivities. These labs provide food antigen testing through a variety of blood tests or stool samplings. These tests, along with other diagnostic tools assist Dr. Fine in creating a personalized treatment plan for his patients. Dr. Fine’s integrative approach to treatment includes food elimination and rotational diets, nutritional supplements, and exercise.
