I’ve been a patient of Dr. Seth’s for the past year and my husband has been a patient for the past two years. He is incredibly knowledgeable, researched, compassionate, caring and detailed. He’s a good listener, too. Dr. Seth has helped my husband successfully gain control of his Rheumatoid arthritis without drugs and he is now in remission. I had been to countless doctors over the years trying to find a cause for my ongoing fatigue and muscle pain. Dr. Seth was the only medical professional who took the time to dig deep and tried to find a root cause. He is also the only medical professional that tested me for Lyme disease. Unfortunately, that came back positive. He’s been overseeing my treatment and I am making progress. Words can’t express how much we appreciate Dr. Seth and the work he’s doing. He has positively impacted our lives and we are grateful for him.

Dr. Seth Osgood has many qualities of an ideal healthcare practitioner: knowledgeable, dedicated, thorough, compassionate, well-researched, positive, and a great listener, to name several. I have been a “tough case”, with many others having told me that I’m out of options and have to live with ineffective Band-Aid solutions. Not something you want to hear in your 20s! Throughout my treatment, Seth has never doubted my symptoms and has remained resolute in finding the root causes of my illness, so that I can be the healthiest version of me possible. He has consistently been concerned with not just my physical wellbeing, but also my emotional wellbeing. I know that my health would be stuck in a downward spiral without the Functional Medicine approach of Dr. Seth. I’ve gone from barely being able to get through each day to enjoying things that I am passionate about again! It is rare to find a practitioner who can be trusted as much as I trust Seth. I highly recommend working with him to get to the root of your chronic health issues!

I went to Dr. Seth with severe eczema on my hands, to the point that some of my fingernails had separated from the skin and were dying and coming off. No one had been able to improve it. On first visit I asked him if he could please make my hands feel better. He said, why don’t we just make them well. Following Dr. Seth’s plan, my hands gradually began to improve. Yesterday I painted my normally-shaped fingernails. And I feel better than I can ever remember feeling! Thank you To Seth! Thank you to Functional Medicine!

The functional medicine route is by far the best way to go. When I met Dr. Osgood, I was 40 pounds under my ideal weight. I had struggled for 2+ years trying to gain weight, put on muscle, and feel strong again. I was also experiencing heart palpitations, and was extremely irritable. I had been a collegiate athlete, but at 28 years old was so weak I was unable to hold our newborn son for any longer than a few minutes at a time. At my first appointment with Seth, I appreciated the time and energy spent to understand my health history, and my current struggles. I felt heard and understood. There was time and space to ask any and all questions I had, without feeling rushed or degraded. Going into my first appointment, I was convinced I had a parasite, and balked at the idea of doing the lab tests Seth recommended. However, I’m now so thankful we did all the tests Seth recommended. Those tests revealed I had Graves’ Disease – an Autoimmune Hyperthyroid condition, as well as several underlying gut issues. I had no clue. Knowing exactly what was going on in my body was key for us to put a plan together to correct all the health issues I had going on. With diligence and support, following the plan we put together with Dr. Osgood, I’m overjoyed to report Graves’ Disease is now in full remission! Something my Endocrinologist originally told me would never happen. Now, I’m off all medication and have implemented several healthy lifestyle habits that will continue to benefit me and my family for years to come. I am strong, have energy, and am generally happier than I have been in years. Thank you Dr. Osgood and GrassRoots for leading the way for those of us who desire true health and healing!

When my oldest child started to have some health issues I was at a loss for how to deal with the situation. As a pharmacist, I knew that what she was experiencing wasn’t completely typical. I know the basics of lots of health conditions and I know about the medications that are usually prescribed and I knew that in her case, they wouldn’t help. When I couldn’t bear to watch her suffer anymore I went the route that was the only thing I knew about-traditional medicine. While the physicians we met were compassionate, I could tell they didn’t know what to do with her and I felt like they dismissed everything I said. We were referred to a specialist because of some odd lab values and the summary of the visit was him saying, “We don’t worry about those lab values. A functional medicine Doctor would be all over that but we don’t concern ourselves with that”. I left the office, took my daughter to school, and cried in frustration. Then I decided to listen to what the specialist inadvertently recommended and make a change to functional medicine. I decided to take a chance and head in a direction that I knew NOTHING about. I called my sister in law and she knew I was ready to listen. She told me how Dr. Osgood and Grassroots Functional Medicine had changed her life and healed her when traditional medicine had failed her for years. I made an appointment that day and began the journey of finding healing for my daughter. I had a million questions and concerns and Christina in the office was so helpful and patient with me. Dr. Osgood was amazing and supportive and knowledgeable. As he described what he felt was going on with her health it just clicked-I knew what he was saying was exactly what she was dealing with. I had been reading and researching for months and I just couldn’t make everything fall into place but it finally all made sense. Healing wasn’t an easy process-it took commitment and a lifestyle change for her. However, the reward was worth it. After a year or more of increasing misery and worsening symptoms, she finally began to feel better. Last week she left to go to college. I cried a few sad tears because I was saying goodbye to her but I cried even more happy tears because she finally feels great and has been symptom free. My goal was to find answers for her by the time she left for school and thanks to Grassroots and Dr. Osgood I have a happy healthy girl. I couldn’t be more grateful.

I have been challenged by CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), autoimmune thyroid disease, and a Mast Cell disorder for over 5 years. These issues resulted in systemic, chronic inflammation affecting multiple systems of my body. I suffered from a long list of symptoms. I lost all of my energy and enthusiasm. Most days I was consumed with debilitating “brain fog” which made the most basic life tasks a challenge. I sought help from countless doctors in Texas and the surrounding states, without resolution or even meaningful improvement. The challenges seemed insurmountable, and my emotional state was deteriorating rapidly. That changed when I met Dr. Seth Osgood! Dr. Osgood took my entire medical history into account – the body, my mental state and support structures, and emotional well-being. He has a unique approach to treatment which manifests through his compassion, thoroughness, and enthusiasm for his patients’ well-being. His encouragement and optimism made an immense difference in my outlook. Dr. Osgood uncovered the hidden causes of my condition and explained the mystery of what I now know to be a complex illness. His treatment plan has me well on the path toward healing. This will be the first year in several that I can resume my passion – hiking in the mountains! I am so grateful for his care!

When I started seeing Dr. Seth I was lost, desperate and miserable physically and emotionally. I had spent over a year seeing multiple doctors and specialists, none of which could figure out what was wrong with me or help me. Dr. Seth has helped me reverse my autoimmune disease and I am now feeling better and better after each visit! Healing the gut and getting my body to a healthy state has taken time but it has all been worth and I could not have done it without Dr. Seth’s expertise and direction!

After almost a decade of chronic illness, pain and autoimmune issues that should have been under control given my constant care under specialists and physicians alike, nothing ever resolved nor helped and my quality of life was extremely poor. That all changed after seeing Dr. Osgood. Functional medicine SAVED my life.

Dr. Osgood has been a life changer for my 9 year old son who has PANDAS/PANS/ Lyme. Before starting treatment my son was in such a bad place he could hardly function. Dr. Osgood did extensive testing to see exactly what elements needed treatment, supplementation and what foods needed to be eliminated. Healing is a slow process that requires a lot of tweaking of the protocol and time and patience. Dr. Osgood found ways to help him heal all while listening to my suggestions and concerns along the way. My input was always validated and welcomed. I can’t say enough about how much Dr. Osgood has helped our journey. We know we have more healing to do, but our current regimen has given my son his life back.

My daughter and I were both battling. Lyme disease I am 53 and she is 23 we drove six and a half hours from Minnesota to get to Serenity Health Care. and they got us through it, it wasn't easy took me about a year-and-a-half and it took my daughter almost 2 years we were very discouraged at first and didn't think we would ever get over this diseas but would like to notify all of you there is help out there that you can get if you financially can't do this, my daughter got grants from the lyme light foundation, she received up to $8,000 but she had to have IV injections and other treatments which cost a fortune if you don't have any kind of insurance.I would like to thank Amy Hoffman for helping us through this you did a great job and thank you for helping Courtney get the grant. My sincerest thank you's you saved us!! My daughter and I we're very tired and sad all the time thinking we were never going to get over this but we did!!

Both of my children have had health issues that began at birth and I myself have
struggled with chronic issues as well that only Dr. L was able to help us with despite years of
visiting other so called experts. I appreciate that Dr. L expects you to be responsible and
do your part in regards to your wellness...his manner could be described as abrupt, but
we have never found him off putting. He is no nonsense with adults and straight forward,
but highly supportive. With my children he has always been terrific..they love him and
everyone on the staff. I will be forever grateful to Dr. LaCava for giving my children a healthy
start in life and for supporting our wellness choices.

"I suffered from one of the most common and easily diagnosable female ailments for years.
I saw an Ob/GYN, PCP, Endo; I nearly gave up. He spent 2.5 hrs with me at our first
appointment. He diagnosed me instantly, as every symptom was classic. Although he
ordered a multitude of blood tests, he treated me immediately. I found relief within weeks, for
5+ years of 'mystery' ailments. I've never seen anyone else since. He saved my quality of life,
and I recommend him to everyone I know. He runs late sometimes, because he spends
quality time with his patients; and he's worth it. I'm so grateful. He's a great listener, and I trust his judgement."

I owe this doctor so much for giving me back my life. I truly thought I was dying. As I stated above I was losing the will to live as well and to continue on. This is such a tough and discouraging way to feel with this illness. I have a husband, 4 children, 16 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. Remember, this has gone on for 13+ years. Here I am trying to help others not to go through the same illness. Not only is this disease devastating but extremeley debilitating. It is so imporant not to give up even though it is very tempting. You get so weak and feel so ill; you do not want to continue to fight the illness anymore. These words are easier said than done. I will always be grateful to Dr. LaCava for helping me through all the agony, torture, unfairness, and unprofessionalism I had been put through for so many years by other specialist MD's. The most important thing to me was going into Dr. LaCava's office and HE BELIEVED ME... he knew I was sick... he didn't say I was crazy and go home... and he was willing to spend his time to get me back on my feet. Again, I say he spent 3 1/2 hours on my first visit and never pushed me out of his office as if there was something more important for him to tend to. I was treated with dignity, compassion, and understanding. Dr. LaCava never made me feel that he would let me go without some sort of an answer as others had done to me. He gave me at least some hope and faith to cling to at that time."

As you know, B.. is a 4 and a half year old boy who has been suffering from asthma for 3 and a half years. His symptoms include cough, nasal congestion, headaches, upset stomach, and wheezing. He also has eczema. He has been on many medications since then, including inhalers. Whenever he came down with a cold, the wheezing would start and eventually he would end up with an asthma attack and an emergency room or office visit would be necessary.

Upon his last visit to your office when he was experiencing difficulty, you ran some blood work for food allergies. The results were normal with the exception of a slight indication of corn allergy. At that time, I found out that B..'s daily diet consisted of a lot of corn or foods made from corn. We decided to put him on a corn-free diet for a month. I was very skeptical of this, but decided to give it a try.

I am very happy to say that your advice did him a world of good. He has not been on any medications for over a month - not even inhalers. His cough is gone as well as his other symptoms. He still maintains a little eczema, but not as bad as it was.

I struggle for 15 years with many symptoms from Lyme Disease. After many years of Infections Disease doctors telling me I was fine, Too young to have whatever symptoms I was in about. I was hopeless. My 1st visit with Dr. Lacava was my 1st glimpse of hope, he listen and he believed me. It took time but he and all the doctors he had recommended have me functioning again. Im scared to think what my condition would be now if I didnt find him.

Dear Dr. LaCava and Staff - This message/review is just about 5 months overdue. I saw Dr. LaCava after struggling with a strange set of symptoms for the better part of a year. I saw almost a dozen doctors...from GPs, to an ER doc, urgent care docs, two neurologists, two chiropractors...and no one could tell me what was wrong. Most told me I had a clean bill of health or it was just anxiety. I am not one to complain about feeling ill unless I really feel terrible. I am a health nut, I eat well, and I'm very active...and I am 32. Finally! A doctor not only *believed* me, but took the time to listen to me. His office took a full, detailed medical and nutritional history on me (who does that these days). The two appointments I had covered the span of a couple hours +, not the rushed, in-and-out, 15 minute appointments I had become accustomed to. Not only was I listened to, but there was genuine concern for my well being. They ordered a slew of tests and those came back with further information on what was going on with me. He recommended a treatment plan, and gave me the tools I needed to take control over my health. A couple months into the plan, coupled with things I was doing on my own now that I had a proper diagnosis, I started to feel better. As I'm writing this, I can say I am 99% symptom free. I am so grateful for the compassion from Dr. L and his entire staff. The reason you haven't heard from me is, well, I'm feeling good! THANK YOU!!!
