About KALE functional medicine

Kale Functional Medicine is a premier health and wellness practice located minutes from downtown Houston, Texas, founded by functional medicine doctor and board-certified Family Medicine physician Miiko Rowley, MD. The practice focuses on disease prevention and treating the root cause of an illness or disease, rather than masking the symptoms.

What we do

We are different

Doctors now spend less time than ever with patients, in a system that rewards them for a quick visit—NOT for helping the patient get truly well. The conventional model leaves time only to name your set of symptoms with a diagnosis then prescribe a pill for that ill. We can do better. You want to know why you are not well and how you can fix the problem. We can help.

Finding the root cause

At Kale Functional Medicine in Houston, TX, we believe you are our most important patient and you deserve to be heard. Our board-certified MD safely integrates conventional and holistic medicine to treat you as a whole person, not just your set of symptoms. Our Functional Medicine approach to your health is a process of determining the root cause of your illness and then creating a Functional Medicine prescription tailored to you.

Benefits to you

Functional Medicine requires lifestyle changes which we will work on with you every step of the way, guided by our core values: Compassion, Reliability, Integrity, Respect, Collaboration.

    I was happy to find a female – personal preference – doctor (MD) who could assist with all of my medical needs versus a nurse practitioner or chiropractor who was also doing holistic medicine. Dr. Rowley’s smile and compassion put me at ease immediately…
