Hi, I'm Dr. Marta Canfield.
Since I was a teenager, I had awful, debilitatingly painful periods along with significant gut issues. It took 10 years of trial and error and finding the right doctors to help me get diagnosed with endometriosis and interstitial cystitis. In 2003, I had surgery with an endometriosis specialist and was able to finish medical school. Then I experienced fertility challenges when my husband and I were trying to get pregnant.
I tried conventional fertility treatments and they failed causing significant anxiety and stress. I knew there had to be something missing. Researching diet and lifestyle changes, I balanced my hormones myself and had two babies naturally!
I know the struggles you are going through because I’ve been there! This prompted me to continue my women’s hormonal health training after medical school and open my own private practice to pass along this integrative approach to balancing women’s hormones.
I graduated from the University at Buffalo School of Medicine with an MD in 2007. I then went on to finish my Family Medicine residency at Suburban Hospital in Williamsville, NY through the University of Buffalo as well. I’ve studied with integrative and functional medicine mentors to make sure I am bringing you evidence-based, proven women’s health integrative protocols.
In addition to my over 15 years of accumulated medical knowledge, I’m also well versed in handling the emotional aspects of healthcare. I have always prioritized listening to the story of each patient that walks through my door and actively involves them in the health plan that is ultimately developed. I also take great pride in educating my patients so they do not continue to make the mistakes of their past and can instead feel empowered to make better decisions as they continue their health journey.
I am now located in Mooresville, NC! I am the medical director of our new Integrative Medicine office where I do Integrative Medicine Consults and have restorative modalities to help my patients reach their wellness goals! I am seeing patients in person as well as via Telemedicine in 12 states.
