Pediatric Functional Medicine

Helping Children Heal From the Inside Out

Our practitioners work to identify the root cause of your child’s illness by acknowledging that all body systems affect one another.
Using food as medicine and supplements to replete nutrients, we can encourage homeostasis in a child’s body. Children are resilient and can heal, given the right tools.

Areas of Emphasis

Functional medicine seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, rather than a collection of symptoms.

FAQs

Prepare for Your Visit

Once you’ve booked your appointment, you will receive an email that confirms your appointment and reviews next steps. Please access your Patient Portal and fill out all forms and medical questionnaires at least 48 hours (2 business days) prior to your appointment. Your providers spend time reviewing your information and prepare for your appointment ahead of time. Any medical records, specifically those within the last year, should be uploaded to your portal or faxed to our office (737) 225-8927. Please make sure to include any medications or supplements you are currently taking, as well as any allergies to medications.

We do not accept insurance and require payment at time of service. We can provide you with a super-bill to file for reimbursement with your insurance company if you choose to do so. Please call your insurance’s Customer Care line to see what out of network benefits you have. Some labs can be run through insurance and I will work with you to prioritize testing–offering insurance options when available. Please note that some insurance companies do not reimburse Telehealth visits. In that case an in-person visit should be scheduled.

 Alive and Well is not set up for acute visits or routine screenings at this time. We recommend that you maintain a relationship with your PCP. We will gladly oversee your health from a functional medicine standpoint and are able to collaborate with your PCP or specialists when necessary.

We require at least 48 hours (2 business days) notice for all canceled or rescheduled appointments. There is a fee associated with no shows, cancelations or rescheduled appointments made within 48 hours of your original appointment time.

We offer a virtual appointment option for anyone living in the state of Texas. Our practitioners prefer to see their patients at least once yearly in person.

At our first appointment, we will meet to discuss your child’s history, relevant symptoms, and goals. This is a good time for us to meet your child and establish a relationship with the family. We will discuss pertinent lab testing that could help guide our treatment plan, supplement recommendations, and dietary or lifestyle adjustments that could benefit your child. A follow up appointment is made after lab results are back, so that we can sit down and discuss the results together.

Svetlana Lisovskiy PA-C

Certified Physician Assistant - Pediatrics

Continuing a family tradition of medicine, Svetlana knew she wanted to be a physician at the age of 13. She’s passionate and dedicated to the health and healing of her patients, with her main goal as finding the root-cause. First, she treats the symptoms for her patients to gain relief, then Svetlana works forensically to find the root cause. Her discoveries lead her patients to heal from within and achieve long-lasting results.
 
Svetlana earned her MD degree from the distinguished 2nd Moscow State School of Medicine in 1986. She then practiced as a general pediatrician and later specialized in pediatric hematology. After that, she worked at Moscow Regional Hemophilia Clinic for three years. After an impressive tenure, Svetlana then immigrated from the Soviet Union to California where she earned her Physician Assistant Master’s degree from Samuel Merritt College in 2006. Svetlana then saw patients in an endocrinology/internal medicine practice while also conducting clinical trials as a co-investigator. In 2017, Svetlana discovered functional medicine as an alternative approach to providing comprehensive diagnostic and treatment care to patients. Svetlana has dedicated her time to learning functional medicine ever since. In 2018, she achieved the status of Functional Medicine Provider from the University of Functional Medicine.
 
The functional medicine field showed her how to treat the body as a complex system and tackle the root-cause instead of focusing solely on symptoms. Her special interests include Lyme disease and genetics predisposing patients to chronic conditions. She is ILDADS (International Lyme and Associated Disorders Society) trained provider.

The combination of her knowledge of western medicine and functional medicine allows her to better understand the root cause and gain greater healing. In March 2021, she moved to Austin to join the team at Oubre Medical, which merged with Root Causes Medical Clinic in early 2022, and now is Alive and Well. Working at this unique practice has brought complete professional satisfaction to Svetlana, and she enjoys collaborative teamwork.
