Patient and Professional Testimonials
“Thank you so much for the
wonderful care you have provided
me for so many years, which has
truly changed my life and health in a
wonderful way. You and your staff
have always been so kind,
respectful, good listeners and
“I know you know all of this, but when I came to you after YEARS of misdiagnosis, it was not
just my physical health that was a problem. It wasn't even just my mental health. It was that
my soul was damaged by all the medical and mental health professionals who used words
and phrases like, "attention seeking, psychosomatic, secondary gains, all in your head, not
as sick as you think you are," all of those things that said there was nothing wrong inside me.
It is crazy making. During that whole time, I only met two doctors who did not make me feel
worse. They believed something was wrong, but said they didn't know what, and therefore,
couldn't help. Then I met you. I could cry every time I see you (and often do) because you
listened, you believed, you sought an answer. Your belief in what no one else could see
your brain that works so DIFFERENTLY than others your ability to synthesize information as a
SCIENTIST, and not as an apprentice of a former preceptor all those things saved me. Yes,
I am your "problem child," as you said one day, but I never felt like you saw ME as the
problem. You saw the whole system of my body, including my mind, and always not only
wanted the best for me, but sought answers by looking for different hypotheses, never
blaming ME. I DREAD going to doctors! I have done therapy, I had done EMDR work for the
stress I feel approaching the health care system. But I NEVER felt that with you. I cannot ever
express how you healed my soul, by believing my description of my own symptoms and
asking me to EXPAND, not minimized my symptoms, by walking this journey with me”.
“In 2011 Jerry came to you for help, unable to walk more than a few
yards due to physical limitations and cognitive impairment. Thanks
to you and your care, he is healthy, and functioning normally now,
holding down a job in his field of expertise, living life to the fullest.
You gave us hope when his doctors had sent Jerry home with no
hope. You gave Jerry tools to heal when we didn't know what to do.
You gave a listening ear and believed the symptoms were not just a
depressed state. We will be forever grateful to you”.

“Once I started reading Just Be Well, I had a hard time putting it down. This is one of the most thoughtfully written non-fiction books by a doctor-writer that I have read in a long time. It is filled with fascinating stories that have changed the way I think about the practice of medicine. Sult clearly connects with his patients and writes from the heart, with a sharp eye for the art of being a physician. He has wisdom and a clarity that remind me of Atul Gawande.”
Nancy Sudak, MD Executive Director
American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine
“This book embodies all of the essential qualities of Dr. Tom Sult. The style is inquisitive, boldly honest, and full of intelligence, heart, and humor. His use of story and metaphor breathe life into concepts that are otherwise difficult to explain, and the chapters at times read like a detective novel; you can’t wait to see what he will discover next! His examples of patients experiencing common problems for which he identifies uncommonly recognized causes bring hope to anyone with chronic medical conditions. After reading this book, you will want to find yourself a functional medicine doctor and participate in the movement to make medicine more personalized and patient focused. It’s Dr. Sult’s grateful tribute to those who have inspired him, and you, too, will be inspired by his words. If you can’t have Dr. Sult as your doctor, at least you will benefit from his wisdom and experience in this fascinating exploration of functional medicine.”

“If I had a complex, chronic illness, I would want a guide like Dr. Sult. I trust his deep intelligence and intuition, and I love his sense of humor. And Dr. Sult calls it as he sees it. In Just Be Well, Dr. Sult takes what can seem complicated and onerous—articulating the underlying causes of disease and what to do about it—and turns it into an accessible, captivating, and hope filled read, complete with patient stories and his own personal journey of discovery. This book will provide direction for patients who are spinning their wheels in the dominant medical paradigm. It will also inspire physicians mired in the limitations of the same medical paradigm eager for a more effective approach.”
