Sarita Prasad M.D.

My Story

Dr. Sarita Prasad is a board-certified Functional Medicine and a Family Medicine physician who is passionate about finding the root cause of dis-ease for her patients. Since her childhood, she has always been passionate about seeking answers to complex problems. She decided to become a doctor because she strongly believed in the capacity of the human body to heal and overcome even the direst circumstances -if given the right tools.

Dr. Prasad finished her Residency in Family medicine in 2007 from UIC and joined a very busy Family Medicine practice in the suburb of Chicago. She noticed early on that our conventional health care system is a revolving door for illness. Patients are getting stuck without achieving the health outcomes they want. Battling with her own issue of chronic migraines, she recognized the shortcomings of relying only on conventional medicine. She was determined to look beyond the pharmaceutical/procedure-based treatment and find solutions that were more holistic and encompassed prevention. This sparked her journey in Functional Medicine, which she has been practicing for the last 10 years.

When she is not in the office, she is teaching medical students from Mercer Medical School. She enjoys traveling, fishing, cooking, yoga and long walks with her family.
