     Welcome to Thrive Health Care


Thrive Health Care was founded by Dr. Maggie Ruiz-Paedae DOM and a practitioner of functional medicine. Her medical ideology was a stark contrast to the in-and-out medical services most people have become accustomed to. Instead of only working to mask symptoms she with functional medicine targeted the root of the problem. Through personalized diagnosis, Dr. Maggie was able to treat many mental and physiological conditions that adults & children struggle with: Depression & Anxiety, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Fibromyalgia, Autism, GAPS, Methylation, and more.

Dr. Maggie established a practice with a team of doctors who work diligently to provide their patients with an individual treatment plan that works for them by utilizing functional medicine practices. At Thrive Health Care our doctors are able to present a more accurate diagnosis by becoming more familiar with patient genetic history and lifestyle. Through nutrition, diet, and exercise, our team of doctors works with the natural systems in the body to help fight off health stressors.



If you struggle with anxiety, depression, IBS, or other harmful conditions that are plaguing your wellness, make an appointment today, and begin the journey to positive health.



We are here for you!
