Find a Doctor

Find a doctor who understands MTHFR

The Physician Directory has a new home:

Get the help you deserve!

What happened to the old listings?

To be listed in the Physician Directory, Dr. Lynch now requires all health professionals to complete training in MTHFR and clinical methylation through the Seeking Health Educational Institute (SHEI).

Those listed must:

1. Complete one or more of Dr. Lynch’s online methylation and nutrigenomics courses.

2. Become Professional Member of Seeking Heath Educational Institute with a verified health professional license.

What is SHEI?

Seeking Health Educational Institute (SHEI) was created to train health professionals in clinical methylation and nutrigenomics, which includes MTHFR.

On the Physician Directory, you will find doctors who have attended conferences and completed clinical methylation and nutrigenomics training through SHEI.

You can search for a doctor based on location, licensing, and their areas of expertise. A number of these providers offer phone consultations if there are none in your area.

Disclaimer: Please note the providers listed and their practices operate independently and are not affiliated with Dr. Lynch or SHEI. Dr. Lynch and SHEI cannot be held liable for any treatment or advice you receive from these providers.


 

A Note of Caution:  When looking for a physician to help you, it is incredibly important to understand that the basic needs for health be met – not just recommending methylfolate – as many times, once basic needs are met and addressed, health is restored:

  • Proper dietary choices
  • Eliminating as many environmental exposures as possible
  • Optimizing lifestyle choices

Critical Point: It is imperative that one must start low and work up with the potent form of folate, L-5-MTHF also known as l-methylfolate.

Many physicians receive lab results identifying one or more of the MTHFR mutations and readily prescribe 7 to 15 mg of l-methylfolate. For some, this can be life-changing in a positive manner. For others, it can be life-threatening. Knowing how one is going to respond to high doses of l-methylfolate is nearly impossible for most physicians – so it is important to start low and work up.

MTHFR is only one gene out of tens of thousands. There are interactions between genes and if one supplements with high doses of l-methylfolate, certain gene-to-gene interactions can prove very hazardous. In particular, but not limited to:

  • CBS
  • MAOA
  • COMT
  • SUOX

If you undergo treatment for MTHFR and you feel worse, something is not right and you likely need to step back with your doctor and re-evaluate.

Here are some resourceful articles on MTHFR for you and your doctor:

    In need of a recommendation for someone in the Phoenix, AZ area who knows about MTHFR (heterozygous c677t) and would be even better if they are also familiar (and believe) MTHFR causes recurrent pregnancy loss. The docs I’ve talked with say it’s not an issue contributing to 3 miscarriages. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi, I’m desperately looking for a doctor in Europe (Belgium).

    • ML March 31, 2014 at 10:34 pm #

      Hi, I work for a doctor that helps clients with Methylation, MTHFR SNPs etc. I am really surprised he is not added to the list, as a very good portion of his clientele have mthfr issues. (Including myself). You can email him via his website @ drjessarmine.com or bio-individualmed.com he has a free initial 15 min SKYPE or phone consult for new clients, and does a vast amount of continuing consults over skype and phone as well. Hope you find a good fit :)good luck

    In 2008, my husband and I began to try and have children. I ended up miscarrying 3 x before my primary did extensive testing and found I had 2 of the MTHFR genes. Since then, I have been diagnosed with IBS, Fibro, Depression, Insomnia, CFS, and have 24 hr headaches about 3x a month. How do I approach my new doctor to have him look into this more? They always think I am crazy and say oh, its the fibro.

    Are there any MTHFR specialists in Arizona??

    • Bostongal April 22, 2014 at 2:31 pm #

      Dear Kate,
      You just need to do a search for “Arizona” in the comment feed (control F, then type your search word in the box, i.e. Arizona or AZ) and you’ll find all comments relating to your state. Dr. Robert Ellsworth of Five Seasons Health in Scottsdale, AZ was mentioned in an older comment someone else made (I have no direct experience with the doctor). You can search the website further for more references near where you live and people’s personal recommendations.

    Dr. Ben
    I am struggling to find a doctor who takes my insurance. I have both gene mutations. We have struggled with miscarriages, I have depression, joint problems,arthritis. Plus we have 3 kids who one is on the Autism spectrum and has limited speech. Our daughter has seizures and night terrors among a few things. Please help us find a practitioner who will help my family thrive with a struggle.

    Dear Rachele, if you clarify where it is you live and reach out to the many people reading this Board, they might be able to share suggestions with you as to doctors and/or alternative medicine practitioners in your area. Dr. Ben doesn’t respond to everyone on this Board personally.

    Really? ONE doctor in NJ? (And not even a registered doctor, it seems.) Does anyone know of an educated doctor in Central Jersey or even NYC? I am seeing one now who ignored all my SNPs except mthfr.

    My 5 year old son is really suffering, being restrained at school etc, he is missing his childhood. He went off after MMR/Reprevax vaccinations just after 3 years old and has been on and off since, nearly normal then like a wild animal, last going off this year after aneasthetic operation and gas. History from last year tells me he will slowly come round in June then start again from infections, sore throats etc in Dec/Jan to come, that’s why think could be PANDAS family of illness too. (One minute nearly normal with miled Aspergers, then dramatic change and has OCD’s, repeats words, regressed baby talk, inappropriate laughing, burst of energy, eyes enlarge, seperation anxiety from me, oppositional etc whereas normal so calm. Could anyone recommend a MTHFR doctor in UK. Also if anyone could recomment a specialist or DAN doctor who can deal with MTHFR and PANDAS autoimmune illness in the UK that would be really appreciated. (Please do not recommend Dr Goyal at Sincere Health, as although has been recommended as a very good doctor he is not available for a few months and I desperately need someone as soon as possible). Of if you are one of those doctors that I can see face to face please help. Thanks.

    I live in Atlanta GA. My cousin has this and said that I should get tested as well. All the symptoms describe me. I did not see any doctors in Georgia on the list. Is there anyone in Georgia or close by? I would love to get tested asap. Thank you!

      I am just starting with Dr. Elizabeth Board of Atlanta Functional Medicine
      5755 North Point Pkwy #74 Alpharetta, Georgia 30022 770-667-3006 http://www.atlantafunctionalmedicine.com
      she and her partner doc are newly certified by the Functional Medicine Institute but she knew right away what I needed in supplements when I told her my 23&me MTHFR mutations. I doubt she has the depth of Dr. Lynch but she seems very open to learning more since I have both of the serious mutations discussed here by Dr. Lynch. Please let me know how it goes if you decide to do a brief intro. meeting with her for free.

      • Gina November 16, 2014 at 7:45 pm #

        Hi Sylvia,

        I wondered if you would be willing to share how your visits with Dr. Elizabeth Board have been going? Have you been pleased with the knowledge and help you’ve received? I’m considering going to see her; but I was hoping for some reassurance before making an appointment and the monetary investment. Thanks for any info you can provide.

  13. MTHFR Frustrated Mum May 29, 2014 at 11:39 pm #

    I used the recommended Serena Kay for Perth – she woo woo’d me. Instead of measuring my bloods and doing specific treatment, she tried to use an EAV machine on me. Just so you all don’t waste your time…. There’s very few specialists here in Perth and Serena Kay didn’t understand the latest research (just from my brief conversation with her). After 4 years of searching, countless docs and specialists, I am down to my last bit of patience with those happy to take my money for nothing in return. She also tried to give me the wrong form of Vit B.

    I am now seeing Mandi Whyte who takes a personalised approach, checks for pyrroles and does all your bloods – if you’re looking for someone in Perth, WA.

    Hi,
    This is tricky business listing the names of physicians who are familiar with MTHFR, but not being able to offer any knowledge about their skill, ability, etc. I have been to one of the physicians you have listed for Austin, Texas and she was by far the worst doctor I have ever encountered. I honestly don’t know how she is allowed to “practice” medicine. I will not go on a personal rant, but I just felt the need to say something to those who are looking for a healthcare provider with a functional medicine approach– do your own research about the provider even when you find a name on a reputable site. Good luck!

    • Dr Lynch July 8, 2014 at 9:39 pm #

      Hi Jennifer –

      Please let me know the name and I will remove.

      I have improved the way physicians are listed – as well as the ability for patients to leave reviews. This is done here:
      http://seekinghealth.org/physician-directory/

      Seeking Health Educational Institute is a new site but growing very quickly – the physician database is growing quickly as well.

      Thank you for your input.

    • rusty January 21, 2015 at 8:53 pm #

      Your post would be helpful if you could tell us who the doctor was and what made her a bad doctor… So hard to find specialists… would you post details? Thank you!!!

  19. Jennifer October 25, 2014 at 2:04 am #

    I am desperately looking for a doctor in the Atlanta, Georgia area. I have developed peripheral neuropathy in the last year, have periods of extreme exhaustion, and other times I have anxiety symptoms for no apparent reason (rapid heartbeat, terrible insomnia, etc.) I occasionally have terrible cramping in my legs and calves at night as well. In the last several weeks I feel like I have terrible “brain fog” and have trouble thinking straight. My brother and mother have almost identical symptoms. My brother just tested positive for double A1298 MTHFR mutation. I am awaiting test results (had to show my brother’s results just to get the doctor to run the test on me), but am assuming I may have some sort of MTHFR issue going on as well. My doctors currently have me on gabapentin and clonezepam but my symptoms are getting worse and worse very rapidly (despite diet changes like avoiding sugar, carbs and all gluten). My doctor seems to know very little about this issue and even said when I brought it up that it is treated with folic acid. Then, because I was frustrated and became upset and cried in her office, she said it sounds like I just have anxiety and wrote me a presciption for Cymbalta. I have filled that prescription but have not started it yet because the thought of MORE medicine on top of what I am already taking frightens me. Instead I went to the vitamin shop and got methyl folate & methylcobalamin to try by myself (bought niacin just in case I felt worse!) I really need someone who knows what they are doing to monitor what is going on with me. I am not a doctor and do not generally believe in self treating. Please help!

    • Laura October 31, 2014 at 1:39 pm #

      Jennifer, I would recommend going to see Dr. Susan Tanner. She is very familiar with MTHFR and other things that could be contributing to your illness. Mold, lyme, candida etc.

    • John November 1, 2014 at 3:47 am #

      Hello Jennifer,

      I am sorry to hear that you are not doing well. With the right treatment it will get better.

      I tried to self treat with limited success. I now rely on the expertise of Bernadette Saviano. She is very sharp and treats people with MTHFR.

  21. Alec November 3, 2014 at 10:25 pm #

    Hi Dr. Lynch,

    I wrote a message yesterday…but I do not think it got posted.

    Any ways, I have been diagnosed with the homozygous for the MTHFR C677T (T/T). Although kind of scary, I am also excited that I hopefully feel good one day soon. I am 55 years old and looking back as a kid, I definitely had a learning disability…hard to focus and was pretty ADD. I have been dealing with the Brain fog and irritability for 25 plus years and have pushed myself to just fight through it… no fun 🙁 I work out regularly and keep in good shape. But this condition has really been tough on my moods and also the lack of clarity. Very tough when trying to run a small business, etc.

    After having some blood tests, my doctor who is an integrative specialist here in LA, noticed the positive testing of the MTHFR mentioned above and asked me to start taking the 5-MTHF in a small dose (1mg), which was too much for me to handle. Although I have to say that like you mention, I did have some great days after adjusting the dosage down to closer to 2 to 300 mcg. But then the side effects of what I am trying to get rid of came on….frustrating. Is there a specialist out here in LA that you would recommend? I did just start adding B12 by Apex…just one drop under my tongue with 200 mcg of 5-mthf in the am. I did take off one day yesterday and I seem to be tolerating it better. I realize after reading your info, that I also may need some niacin as well.
    My doctor has had me on a low carb diet for at least a year and a half because my gut was giving me issues…that I now believe are related to this condition. Interestingly enough, although the side effects have been a bummer, my gut seems to be doing better since I have taken the 5-MTHf.

    Please let me know your thoughts and if there is someone I could see out here in LA.
    Thank you SO MUCH!

    Can anyone recommend a ob or maternal fetal medicine doctor in colorado that is familiar with MTHFR? I moved here from Missouri and had a wonderful maternal fetal medicine doctor who helped me keep my pregnancy going and worked a protocol that helped me carry to term. I want one more child and I know I will need to drive around 3 hours to see one. I live in ALAMOSA but we don’t really have high risk at the hospital here.

    • Boston January 8, 2015 at 4:49 pm #

  23. Elizabeth December 19, 2014 at 4:44 am #

    Please, please help me. I have a history of recurrent miscarriages. I have found out that I am compound heterozygous for MTHFR. They ‘think’ I may develop antiphospholipid syndrome only while pregnant, and then my levels go back to normal after I miscarry. I was told to take lovenox, baby aspirin, and crinone if I get pregnant again. I am running out of time to be able to have more children b/c of age and egg reserves.

    Now I am more concerned about my health and what to do about this MTHFR than I am about trying to have another baby. From things I have read it is not as easy as supplementing with methyfolate. I read I may need more testing, CBS test etc…??????? I don’t even know where to get that test?? I read I probably need to take B12, B6 supplements too??? I am so confused. I understand MTHFR and why it is important and what it can lead to. I just don’t know what to do now that I know I have it. What supplements and further tests to get? Please help.

    With Christ’s Love,
    Elizabeth

    • Boston January 8, 2015 at 4:43 pm #

      Hi Elizabeth. I’m sorry to hear about your recurrent miscarriages. My sister and I both have MTHFR mutations and carrying a baby to term has been a concern. My sister experienced recurrent miscarriages before getting the MTHR diagnosis; in her first successful pregnancy following that she used lovenox daily and in her second successful pregnancy she used baby aspirin daily instead of lovenox – combined with the right multivitamins of course. I am at the stage of trying to conceive and took some time to adjust my body to folic acid. I initially had terrible side effects from generic store bought folic acid supplements and came to realize how important it is to have the right form of folate and to give your body time to adjust to it gradually. I now take Thorne’s prenatal vitamins and a 5-MTHF supplement (available through this site or amazon). Right now I do 2 mg of folate/day (combination of what’s in the Thorne prenatal vitamins and Thorne 5-MTHF supplement) while trying to conceive along with a daily low dose of aspirin. My goal is to increase to 3 mg/day of folate (with the other prenatal vitamin components) and switch to lovenox once I’m pregnant. I also have a maternal fetal medicine doctor specializing in high risk cases like mine lined up already for when I do get pregnant. I really recommend gathering info, finding doctors/asing questions and achieving the right vitamin regime prior to your next pregnancy. I don’t think there’s any one easy fix for an MTHFR diagnosis but getting the right vitamin supplements is certainly important, as is adding new/incresed supplements slowly so you don’t shock your body into having side effects. This website has some protocol suggestions for MTHFR diagnoses that you should check out. Good luck.

      • Elizabeth January 11, 2015 at 9:26 pm #

        Boston, thank you for your help and encouragement. This past week I went to one of the MTHFR specialists that Dr.Lynch recommends on his site. This doctor really helped me understand what I need to do. He said I need to take at least 1000 mcg of methylfolate a day and 500 mcg of methy B12 twice a week working up to three times a week. Said to start slow to prevent over methylation symptoms. Why are you working up to 3mg of methylfolate a day?? Did your doctor suggest that dose? Also, did your sister start the lovenox before or after her positive pregnancy test? Thank you so much for sharing your experience and knowledge on this subject!

    Hi,

    I see quite a few doctors listed for Oregon. Does anyone recommend someone in Oregon who TRUELY knows about methylation issues, not just MTHFR? I’ve wasted so much time and money seeing multiple doctors who just don’t know enough about this. Thank you.

    • Rusty February 12, 2015 at 6:44 pm #

      Hi Michael,

      I spent a few months searching for a doctor who truly knew MTHRF, and I found Dr. Tricarico (SE, Awakenings) and Dr. Sharon Woodard (NE), both naturopaths. I moved to Austin and had brief and good (they had knowledge and were able to give me information) experiences with each of them.

      • Michael (NW) February 20, 2015 at 5:19 pm #

        Hi Rusty. Thank for the info. Did those doctors seem knowledgable in other methylation areas as well? I have MTRR, MTR, VDR, CBS, etc… Not MTHFR which is the most common. So, I really need someone who had knowledage in these areas as a whole, in the Portland Oregon area. It’s hard to find anyone who knows anything more than MTHFR. I don’t like trying to fix myself. 🙂

    My husband was just diagnosed with hetero MTHFR in the hosp after having 2 blood clots in his lungs. His CT showed the 2 clots in his pulm artery with tissue death and several lesions. I do not have any labs with any details. His hematologist diagnosed him and sent him home on Xarelto and Folic Acid. We D/C folic acid after doing some research. His hematologist said his homocysteine wasnt elevated then said it was only slightly elevated. We are in Louisville, KY and cant find a knowledgeable doctor in the area. How do the skype appts work? Payment wise? We have ok insurance… dont know how that will work. I am sure he will need more labs also. Any help and info is GREATLY appreciated!!

    • Elizabeth March 4, 2015 at 2:14 pm #

      Aimee, I live in KY also and the closest doctor that I found that is knowledgeable about MTHFR is in Brentwood, TN. That is a little past Nashville. His name is Dr. Potter and he is awesome. His practice is self pay but it is reasonable. He is not only an awesome doctor with a great approach to medical care, but is a great person also. I feel blessed to have found him. You should go see him. His website is http://www.sanctuarymedicalcare.com I pray that Jesus heals your husband. 🙂

    HI I have tested pos for hemocystine as 2 of my daughters. Is there a doc in Birmingham,al area. I have relatives (young) that have problems as those mentioned involving mther, 1 has been tested(3 yrs old0 others have not. I would like to have complete panel done for the future generations of my family, just need to kno a doc that will help Thx Carolyn

    • Aron May 11, 2015 at 10:42 pm #

      Hi Carolyn – The physician directory (https://seekinghealth.org/physician-directory/) is a good place to start. I did not see any doctors in Alabama, but it may be worth calling some of the doctors nearby to see if they do phone consults. It is also worth having a discussion with your primary care doctor, who can test you and your family for MTHFR. If he or she isn’t familiar with MTHFR, you can direct them to MTHFR.net and seekinghealth.org.

    When you say “if you have SOD snps” are you saying if you are homo or hetro? — My doctor had recommended 800mg methylelfolate for low B12 and it made me sick. I went down to 400 and it was better. — I found out later I had MTHFR C677 T compt, and I have SOD3 homo and SOD2 hetro.

    I dont’ know how to do nutritional support because everything can’t be digested/eliminated. What to do?

    Thanks

    For those looking for an MTHFR doctor in Australia unfortunately you’re out of luck. The GP’s here are not open minded at all and will refuse to even consider MTHFR as a problem, even though the C677 lab test warns of potention problems. Most of those Australian ‘doctors’ in this list are not real doctors, they are naturopaths and use techniques such as crystal therapy and electrical impulse measurement for allergies – no thanks.

    In other words, they are stuck on what to do, without a strict treatment regime and the unavailability of methylfolate who can blame them? They give you 15 minutes of their time and bill medicare the rest, they don’t have time to research the complex MTHFR interactions and potential problems.

    An Australian rheumatologist treating my family member for a serious disease found out the person was compound hetero 677/1298 and dismissed the issue altogether, giving the excuse that there is no accepted treatment for this genetic mutation. Of course he is right, together with the dozens of other genes involved in the methylation and metabolic process, how can he know the bestway to treat this individual gene mutation? Even Dr Ben shoots from the hip with trial and error treatment regimes for each patient, our conservative doctors are not comfortable doing that – they want to prescribe you a drug and get you out of their office quickly. They’ve also been tricked into thinking MTHFR has no long term effects, despite many studies showing otherwise.

    In Australia we have no CBS genetic serum test available to us, the medicare lab does MTHFR (677/1298) and ignores all the other genes, so we are left with a partial view of our metabolic problems. There are no medicare available methylation pathway test, GP confirmed no such test exists. However I see there is a gene testing lab using saliva samples here, that many of the naturopaths use, however after past experiences with naturopaths I vowed never to visit these type of practitioners again. Many of them are just not at the level I’d expect for someone who is looking after my family’s health, despite having trained in MTHFR.

    I’ve posting to this forum quite a few time and it hasn’t shown up. In the interests of really helping people with MTHFR there should be no censoring of legitimate comment or questions. Shameful. I will be posting about this on Phoenix Rising.
