Dr. Roberta Van Zant

 

Dr. Van Zant practices Functional and Holistic Medicine. Functional medicine is individual based medical care, and focuses on true prevention as well as identifying the underlying causes of symptoms and disease with a goal of treating the cause and reestablishing optimal health. It is scientifically and physiologically based healthcare. Holistic Medicine is aimed at treating the entire person – mind, body and spirit – while recognizing that we are not split up into different “sections”, but rather interact as a whole, interconnected system.

Dr. Van Zant is also trained as an osteopathic physician. Osteopathic physicians receive 4 years of medical school training, and average an additional 120 hours of training in musculoskeletal medicine during medical school. Osteopathic physicians receive specialty training in family medicine and many different specialty medical fields, similar to M.D.s.  However, it is their ability to evaluate and treat musculoskeletal conditions that set them apart. Dr. Van Zant is board certified by the American Osteopathic Association in Family Medicine and Manipulative Medicine and sees patients for osteopathic treatment.

Dr. Van Zant is board certified in Family Medicine by the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Board of Osteopathic Family Physicians. She has received over 300 hours of additional training in functional and integrative medicine as well as osteopathic manipulation.

She received her medical degree from University of Texas Health Science Center Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, completed her residency training in Family Medicine at Harrisburg Family Practice Residency Program in Harrisburg, PA, and then was the first graduate of the Women’s Health Fellowship through the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Peoria and Methodist Medical Center.

Corrie Ackerman, R.N.

Corrie earned her Bachelor in Nursing degree (R.N.) from OSF St Francis Medical Center College of Nursing in 2015. She has worked in variety of healthcare settings, but is drawn to functional medicine because she has seen firsthand the value of “healing ailments at their root cause through a combination of natural and clinical approaches.”

Corrie was born and raised in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her family, being outdoors, running, traveling to new places, and learning about new ways to take care of patients. She says, “I am mindful of God’s intimate, intentional creation – that we are each unique, individually designed by Him (Ps. 139:13-14) – which is why I am so passionate about helping to treat patients as a whole person and not in part.”

You can feel Corrie’s caring and gentle approach with our patients both in the office and on the phone. She always goes the extra mile to make sure they are well taken care of. We are so grateful to have Corrie as an integral part of our healthcare team.
