About the Host - Kori Feldman, MD

Dr. Kori Feldman is a board-certified Family Medicine physician. She earned her medical degree from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago, IL. Following medical school, she trained at MacNeal Hospital Family Medicine Residency Training Program in Berwyn, IL. During her residency, she was able to pursue her passion for integrative and functional medicine. During her training, she was also able to work with Dr. Andrew Weil's Program in Integrative Medicine in Tucson, AZ, and with a natural medicine clinic in Chicago.
After residency in 2008, she opened her insurance-based integrative primary care clinic in La Grange, IL (Integrative Family Health Associates / IFHA). Although IFHA was successful, she found that it only helped a small fraction of her patients actually get or remain healthy. In 2015, Dr. Feldman created a formal functional wellness practice (Vitality Wellness Partners) outside of the insurance model and found that her patients were dramatically more successful at reaching their health goals. Given her family medicine background, Dr. Feldman remained committed to offering excellent integrative primary care to all of her patients and did not want to give up this side of her practice. This led to the creation of a thriving Hybrid Practice offering a spectrum of care and services. In 2018, Dr. Feldman proudly opened Vitality Family Health, a new and improved healthcare model to deliver amazing primary care while also supporting patients to continue to improve their health.
Dr. Feldman became a charter member of the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine in November 2014 and continues to work on progressing the integrative medicine movement. She continues training with the Institute for Functional Medicine. She had the honor of presenting at Harvard University and received the Outstanding Holistic Practitioner Award. She has appeared on television in different cities on ABC, NBC, and FOX morning shows. Dr. Feldman is also an inspiring speaker for the Functional Forum. In 2018, she also started coaching other healthcare practitioners across the country to help spread the functional medicine movement of getting to the root cause of health issues. She is excited to share her growing knowledge and skills in functional medicine and wellness care.
