Hi, my name is Daniel Bruns, PA-C. Before beginning my training as a physician assistant, I learned about functional medicine and was inspired by the work of great providers like Dr. Mark Hyman. The further I progressed through PA school, the more I understood the importance of functional medicine to America's overall physical, mental, social, and financial health. While our conventional medicine model is excellent in acute care settings, we have much to improve upon—especially with chronic conditions.
Before joining KanodiaMD, I worked as an internal medicine hospitalist PA. Though the experience was rewarding, my passion for functional medicine continued to grow and I was fortunate enough to start working with Dr. Kanodia. Being able to identify and treat root causes allows me to offer so much to the world, and I am excited to be a part of it.
In my free time, I enjoy getting into nature and reconnecting with the earth. From Montana and Canada to Peru and Mt. Everest, my adventures have taken me around the globe. One of my favorite pastimes is lying in my hammock with a good philosophy or functional medicine book. I am particularly interested at a macro level of how environmental health impacts our physiologic, mental, and societal health.
