New Certified Functional Medicine M.D. in Elk Grove Village




Dr. Peter Kozlowski

Certified IFM practitioner Dr. Peter Kozlowski has opened an office at 92 Turner Avenue, in Elk Grove Village, and is accepting patients of all ages. Kozlowski specializes in nutrition, gut health, thyroid, MTHFR, pediatrics and environmental medicine.

        Kozlowski has been applying functional medicine since his intern year of residency, after training privately with leaders in the field, while working in the clinics of Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Susan Blum and Dr. Deepak Chopra.

        Fluent in Polish and medical Spanish, he is now finishing certification with the Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs. The Chicago native completed a family medicine residency here and then practiced in the Florida Panhandle; now he has come home to be closer to family.

        “I love Functional Medicine because it gives patients a voice and allows them to find answers,” says Kozlowski. “The answers don’t lie in the prescription pad, but in addressing physical, mental, and spiritual components in your life which are either promoting health or contributing to disease. The most important tool we have is communication, which is why I spend a lot of time with my patients. Through listening and using the newest and most relevant lab tests, I can recommend the necessary changes.”
