Dr. Danielle Greenman, MD

Functional Medicine Physician

Danielle Greenman, MD, is a dual board-certified physician in internal and integrative medicine and fully trained in functional medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine. She is also licensed in medical acupuncture and has trained in several forms of energy healing.

Dr. Greenman’s journey to becoming a doctor started as an undergraduate at Cornell University, where she studied Anthropology  with an interest in the cultural constructs of medicine and healing.   She was fascinated by the role of the Shaman and Traditional Medicine Men and Women.

After college, she studied  how medicine was implemented in different countries around the world.  This interest continued while in medical school at Robert Wood Johnson, Rutgers Medical school and in residency at Yale University. She learned from physicians and healers in Spain, Brazil, Bhutan, Taiwan, and Mexico.

After residency, she received two fellowships-  a clinical fellowship in Integrative Medicine from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and a second fellowship in Integrative Medicine from The University of Arizona.  However, it wasn’t until Dr. Greenman found functional medicine that she felt her metaphorical doctor’s black bag was complete with the tools needed to help her patients.

And, it was in her functional medicine training that Dr. Greenman realized that our lifestyles and exposures affect the expression of our genes and the functioning of our nervous, endocrine, elimination, and immune systems. Understanding where the system is malfunctioning can help us get to the root cause of a patient’s symptoms.   With this understanding, she utilizes a system-based approach to the health and healing of her patients.  Dr. Greenman’s roots as a primary care physician are at the heart of her complementary and alternative modalities. She brings to Blum Center over a decade of experience and looks forward to getting to know you and to facilitating your healing journey.
