Bette (Ann) Peterson, M.D.

Family Physician (Retired)

I started working with Dr. Kim in late April. After a year and a half of languishing with pain and profound fatigue and TERRIBLE side effects from treatment, including Melanoma!, she discovered that I not only had RA but also active autoimmune thyroid disease (which I thought was “under control” but wasn’t) and significant adrenal dysfunction.

In one short month of following her treatment plan, my RA is under very good control with no immunosuppressive pharmaceuticals! Just following her diet and natural therapies! I feel the best I have felt in forever! Not only is my pain under excellent control, my energy level has soared, I’m losing weight, and sleeping the best I have in years. I highly recommend her treatments!

As a busy Facial Plastic Surgeon, I find that I need to be in super health and have lots of energy in order to to take great care of my patients. Dr. Kim closely monitors my health and laboratory values to maintain my peak performance under 100% control with integratives and BHRT. No prescription medications are needed whatsoever to maintain my health.

She is readily available at a moment’s notice and that’s one of the many benefits of committing to a Concierge Physician. No waiting for answers to my questions 24/7. She keeps up with the latest medical developments for optimal health, and will ask me to “tweak” my diet, integratives and exercise plan, when needed. I feel like I’m still 30; no kidding.

Dr. Kim treats you like family. I feel great, am healthy and when I first came to her she solved a medical mystery which no doctor could diagnose, let alone treat. She is utterly brilliant and she sure keeps me healthy and feeling great.

I have been working with Dr. Kim for a few months now. First, she helped me to isolate the root issue causing my symptoms. Then, she put me on a regime that simultaneously treats both the root issue and the current symptoms that I have been experiencing. I am now feeling much better. Also, Dr. Kim is extremely knowledgeable and on top of the recent developments in the medical field.

All of this said, the best part about Dr. Kim is her quick, kind responses and care no matter how big or small my question or needs might be. I would recommend that anybody experiencing a range of seemingly unconnected symptoms seek treatment under her guidance.

Dr. Kim Crawford was one of the first doctors in America to see the value of health reporting on television news. As the evening anchor for WTVX, Ft.Pierce and morning anchor for WPTV, West Palm Beach, I worked alongside Dr. Kim for years. I realized early on that she was a pioneer in getting preventive medical advice to the masses. She still is.

Unfortunately, I called her after I had been diagnosed with cancer in 2019. But, it’s a good thing I did. Her advice got me through radiation treatment with as few side effects as possible due to her alternative cancer treatment regimen. It was inevitable that after radiation, I was completely wiped out. Dr. Kim acted quickly ordering crucial blood tests and stepping in to fix health issues that other doctors simply ignored or missed.

Her encouragement to eat an auto immune diet along with exercise and a specific supplement protocol, got me through radiation recovery. This brilliant and caring doctor has transformed me into a happier , healthier person who is looking forward to many more years on this planet.

Dr. Kim has been the answer to years of life draining symptoms that I was beginning to believe were chronic. Doctor after doctor told me that I was depressed, just aging, unmotivated, or that I was expecting too much – “all women feel this way as they get older”. I am thrilled to find out they were wrong! After years of a high-stress job, it turns out that I had what is termed high functioning depression as well as high functioning anxiety. Not to mention all of the typical brain fog type symptoms that many of us get. Dr. Kim has me feeling happy, calm, energized, mentally focused, lighter, sexier and best of all, hopeful!

She took the time to listen to every symptom, feeling and concern that I had, treating and educating me on each one. Her passion and profound knowledge of functional medicine are infectious, plus her compassion and warm, friendly manner made me feel ‘heard’ and fully supported. Dr. Kim brought back my vitality and zest for living!

Dr. Kim is a preeminent figure in the field of antiaging. Board certified in Internal Medicine as well as by A4M. she has truly redefined current antiaging, regenerative and functional medicine. I have benefited immensely by being Dr. Kim’s patient and long-time friend from our days at U of Penn.

From energy to detox to pain to skin care, Dr. Kim has the latest answers. Her weight loss program is second to none. I have given up ridiculous diet programs and have followed her and, YES, I have lost weight. She is a pro and CARES about her patients. Dr. Kim is a rare find.

As a busy over-65 attorney who still jets around the world regularly, I need lots of energy and great sleep. I felt as if I would need to slow down at my age but thanks to my dear Dr. Kim, I’m healthy, am told I look great and feel like a million bucks.

Dr. Kim Crawford is an enlightened functional medical doctor that has given me my life back! After moving, my #CIRS reared it’s ugly head once more and Dr. Kim rescued me with her gentle protocol that is in process of curing me of symptoms that I have had for two decades or more. Dr. Kim not only healed me she healed my house with contacts to handle these environmental issues and solutions while always looking to improve her protocol for her patients. I’m so blessed to have found her!

Clarity Works Consulting

Dr. Kim seems to be able to fix just about anything. She is great with the issues that we women all eventually face regarding hormones, energy, sleep, and menopausal weight gain. If you “go through life” without a doctor like her, you just live, rather than thrive. Worst of all, you might develop a disease she could have prevented. I’m thrilled with my care over the years and let’s just say “so far, so good!”

Dr. Kim literally saved both my adult son and my daughter, each of whom had different problems that had been “treated” by the medical establishment for many years. She found my son’s pituitary adenoma and since treatment has begun he is a different person. She was the first one to effectively control my daughter’s Hashimoto type hypothyroidism. Both of them are happy, confident and healthy now and we owe it all to Dr. Kim Crawford.

Dr. Kim is a detailed and marvelous physician who is not just great at what she does, she is truly one of the most brilliant people I have ever met. I rest easy at night, knowing she takes great care of me. I am still feeling as if I’m 30!

Gilles Pesant testimonial review for Dr. Kim Crawford M.D.

Gilles Pesant

Mechanical Engineer

Dr. Kim has been my exclusive doctor for over 15 years now. Before we met, I was used to the “regular doctors” treatment where they open up your file as they walk into the exam room. As an Engineer, I have always been dumbfounded by the fact that very few physicians seemed to look for the root cause of medical issues. Clearly, all they were trying to do was to figure out which drug to prescribe. And when I dared asking questions, they usually became defensive, as if I were showing distrust.

Being my wife, you might think that I can’t be unbiased and I’m just promoting “Dr. Kim” services. The truth is that I have been fortunate enough to see over the years how she interacts with her patients. I’ve seen her spending hours over the phone with them, and working relentlessly on extremely difficult cases until she has figured out the solution to their issues. I have yet to see a case too complicated for her.

She never gives up because she truly cares. For her, a patient is not just another “case,” it is personal. This is simply the way she is and this is the kind of care you can expect from her.

Like most everyone else, I’ve had my own puzzling medical issues, but Dr. Kim is the first doctor who was ever able to diagnose what was medically wrong with me. So obviously, for me, a rousing endorsement is a no-brainer.

If you are one of her CIRS patients (or have other issues involving your dwelling), I will always be happy to talk to you about “environmental issues” based on my professional experience. Several patients have described this as “added value.” I guess that’s true, and I will always be happy to help you too as one of Dr. Kim’s patients.

Karen Hamers testimonial review for Dr. Kim Crawford M.D.

Karen Hamers

Owner: Merit Apparel

 As a business owner (flight helmets no less!) and attentive mom and grandmom, I need to be healthy and energetic, as my schedule is non-stop. Juggling all of this for many years gave me what Dr. Kim calls high functioning anxiety, complete with the damaging high cortisol levels. I also noticed I was walking into rooms, not recalling why. I decided it was time to get some answers and some real help for my stress and short term memory issues.

I have now known and relied on Dr. Kim to first get me healthy-brain and body- and then keep me healthy for many years. When I need medical help, she’s the one I call. She even allows me to ask questions about my entire family. What other doctor does that? If you have tried other Functional doctors, remember they are NOT all the same. Dr. Kim is highly trained and really, truly keeps up with the latest developments in her field. Don’t think twice. Seriously. She is a rockstar.

I met Dr. Kim on an airplane, of all places. We exchanged cards, after having a lovely hours-long conversation and I contacted her a couple of years later when I felt that I really needed her. She certainly didn’t disappoint. Despite my high level position in the medical world, the “regular doctors” I routinely saw just plain didn’t have her expertise. As she always says “it’s not their fault – they just weren’t given the extra training I sought out.”

Anyway, fast forward to COVID times, and she kept both me and my husband safe with her prophylactic regimen, until—months into it all—we were exposed with our guard down. This was before there were advanced therapies available; so you can imagine how nervous we were when we got sick. However, thanks to Dr. Kim, we both sailed through our respective illnesses. Life is a lot better with Dr. Kim in your court, that’s for sure!

Dermatologist

I have known, loved and been grateful for Dr. Crawford for many years, and appreciate not only her depth of knowledge but that she constantly reads, attends meetings and is so very current on everything in her field. It makes my own practice that much easier when a patient that no one seems to be able to treat is someone who I can confidently refer to “Dr. Kim” and every single time; I see amazing results.

As someone who specializes in esthetics, I love that she has so many “inside to outside” health and beauty tricks to minimize external aging. Most definitely, all of us want to not just feel but also look our best. If you come looking for health you get a bonus of also looking younger, under her expert care.

Dr. Crawford, I cannot end this challenging and stressful Covid year without telling you how thankful I am that I met you, which, if you remember, was in the most unlikely of places – social media – nine years ago! I remember being stunned, and I remain stunned, at how passionate you are about helping people maintain their health, and how willing you were to share detailed information and in-depth knowledge that is not easy for the lay person to access. Every time I read an article on your website I wonder why this isn’t common knowledge for all Americans. Now, after bringing you onboard personally I’m no longer under the thumb of Big Pharma, and have learned to listen to my body and hear what it is telling me it needs.

I share everything I learn from you with my husband, an orthopedic surgeon who readily admits he never learned in medical school what you know about health. After getting very sick in January with a cough and depressing exhaustion that would not go away, I called you in a panic when the Pandemic hit New York City, wondering how I was going to stay strong and get through this horrid year. Nine months later my husband and I continue to follow your protocols and we remain healthy. Long before Dr. Fauci came along, you were my Go-To Doctor about Covid. I am enormously grateful. Happy holidays. May we all have a healthier, less stressful, happier 2021. Giselle Minoli, NYC

I’m from Miami, and am the director of a holistic Chiropractic Clinic in San Francisco. Each time I return home to visit family, I see Dr. Kim who I also consider family by now, since I’ve been utilizing her expertise for now well over five years. My original diagnosis that she made (after I had seen countless specialists) OVER THE PHONE was complex, hard to treat, but she got me through it and to the other side. She is easily one of the best Functional doctors in the U.S. I cannot recommend her more highly.

I’ve got a busy Occupational Therapy/Speech Therapy practice and in my spare time I am an author. I was thinking I needed more than a regular doctor for a long, long time. It took me years to “get here” so imagine my surprise when after 6 weeks I felt years younger, started peeling off the weight, and already looked younger! Three more specifics wanted? I’ll pick out stamina, and both my emotional and cognitive state. Dr. Kim has really helped my quality of life and I strongly recommend her wonderful self to you, too.

I have been a satisfied patient of Dr. Crawford’s (better known as Dr. Kim!) for a number of years. She is a very knowledgeable Internal Medicine M.D. and is “cutting edge” in preventative and functional medicine for helping patients live long and healthy lives. The information and advice that I think everyone would benefit from include important topics such as optimal sleep, energy, and slowed Aging. I find her discussions and recommendations quite useful.

I have a medical issue (EMF sensitivity due to mycotoxins) that baffled a number of other doctors, but Dr. Kim quickly got to the root cause of my symptoms and voila-just as she always does, she got me all better. Not to dwell upon it, but those of us with mycotoxin CIRS all have cognitive impairment, and having Dr. Kim being able to reverse my brain problems as quickly as she did was nothing short of miraculous. Dr. Kim is a wonderful person and truly cares about her patients. I highly recommend Dr. Kim.

Talent Development

I found Dr. Kim in August after getting so frustrated with doctors who only wanted to prescribe drugs for symptoms and wouldn’t help me find the root cause. I had spent 15+ years in pain (I’m only 34) and was at the end of my rope. After my first call with Dr. Kim, I felt a glimmer of hope. For the first time, I had answers! She helped me get the tests I needed to confirm a CIRS diagnosis and I’ve been following her protocol since September. My pain levels have decreased dramatically, my energy levels are rebounding, and I finally have a doctor who listens. I’m eternally grateful to Dr. Kim and her husband for helping me recover.

David Sturgeon testimonial review for Dr. Kim Crawford M.D.

District Manager

I have been a patient of Dr. Kim’s for many years and can’t imagine life without her to be perfectly honest. Not only does she keep me healthy by monitoring all of my biomarkers, hormones and so on, but now I’m able to take advantage of her knowledge of peptides, as well as everything else.

Unlike most of her patients, I had heard that she was a tri-athlete and fitness center owner when I first contacted her, and figured she would know a little something about safe bodybuilding. I gave her this picture, saying “I look like this because of you” because it’s absolutely true. For any guy looking to build a safe, healthy, muscular body, Dr. Kim is a treasure trove of knowledge. I know other guys who risk their health to look great in the gym and that’s just plain insanity. Call Dr. Kim – you can tell her anything, and she’ll figure out how to help you reach your fitness goals safely.

I had seen other doctors before (thank goodness!) finding Dr. Kim; all who had professed great knowledge in hormone replacement. As a medical professional, I understood the meaning of “high leptin”, that Dr. Crawford showed me was a result of being over-treated (too much!) with estrogen, and having a high cortisol unaddressed by previous hormone specialists. I had started putting on weight after menopause and it was made much worse by other doctors, before Dr. Kim came to my rescue. In addition, she is an expert on treating autoimmune disorders and I finally was able to be weaned from my biologic, potentially cancer-causing medication. I highly recommend her expertise and care to everyone.

I’d like to start out with a warning to any woman looking for post-menopausal hormone replacement: some doctors say they are experts, but are not trained in the nuances. Dr. Crawford or Dr. Kim as we all call her is an expert and I mean an expert when it comes to female hormones. She even has what she calls “tricks” but I call “little miracles” to make you not just feel younger but look younger, get the menopause pounds off and more. My energy levels are re-set to what they were when I was in my 20’s and I’m again sleeping soundly. Unlike other doctors, she listens, is so thorough it is unbelievable, and she even sends you a summary of what she is recommending so you aren’t confused. I’m spoiled with her rapid response time and availability. And I’m sure you will be too!

Like most of Dr. Kim’s patients, I had been to a bunch of other doctors; even Functional doctors. I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme, but despite treatment for months on end, I still felt just awful, so I contacted Dr. Crawford to get another opinion. In fact, I liked the doctor I was seeing, and simply purchased a telemedicine consultation. 

After spending an hour on the phone with Dr. Crawford it was painfully obvious that her scope of knowledge far exceeded that of the doctor I was seeing. She informed me that CIRS from Lyme disease which wasn’t getting better (if being treated properly) meant that I also had a mold and mycotoxin issue, too. And of course, she was right. What I had was not just a problem at home-but a problem in several properties I was managing; all of them; making me sick! Long story short- my doctor didn’t know any of this and sure didn’t know how to treat either me or give me any advice on how to remediate the properties. That was the final straw-I switched to Dr. Kim and have never looked back. 

After help from her husband (who helped my husband form a plan of attack for the moldy properties-for no extra charge-unreal!), we got the properties under control which then allowed me to heal. After years of being sick, unable to sleep or basically function at all, Dr. Kim gave me my life back. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Much love always.

Staying healthy is a family affair. With a hectic medical practice and kids at home, we both needed help with weight management, healthy eating, stress management, treatment of high cortisol (from too much stress!) and Jaymes hadn’t slept a full night for 10 years before we started seeing Dr. Kim, many far less healthy years ago. She stays so current on everything in her field, that when we try to stump her with something we’ve read, invariably, she has read it and has already incorporated whatever it is into what she is doing for everyone. It’s an unhealthy world out there and we realized we needed help; you probably do too. There is no one better to help you get healthy or just plain stay as healthy as possible than our Dr. Kim.

Functional Chiropractor

I’m a Functional Chiropractor so am all about finding and then treating the root cause of illness. This is why I knew it was important for my wife and myself to find the best Functional Internal Medicine Specialist out there, and we did! Dr. Kim is like family to us, even (for a fee that wasn’t much) driving down to Port St. Lucie to see us both when we cried uncle during a family crisis. It’s hard to put into words what having Dr. Kim as your concierge doctor does for you. Of course, she improves your health, well-being, and sharpens your brain, increases your energy levels and so on. But it’s more than what she does medically. Knowing she is just a quick email or phone call away gives us peace of mind. That might be the greatest gift of all if you have her for your doctor.

My husband, a Functional Chiropractor insisted that when I went into early menopause, I should talk to Dr. Kim Crawford who he was already seeing with great results. I was told by my Ob-Gyn that she could do hormone replacement therapy, so wasn’t sure I needed a doctor so highly trained. I did my free consult with Dr. Kim, who spent an enormous amount of time with me – more than I had with a paid doctor visit-like-ever! She told me many things that my Ob-Gyn never mentioned and it turned out, didn’t know about. So; that plus my husband’s endorsement made choosing Dr. Kim a bit of a no-brainer. I had the usual symptoms- belly fat, brain fog, insomnia and hot flashes. I even noticed more wrinkles and softer muscles. Within the first few months of treatment, I was my old, I should say YOUNG, self again! Thank you always, Dr. Kim. Please never retire; I don’t know what we’d do!   

Peggy Chase testimonial review for Dr. Kim Crawford M.D.

Healthcare CEO

You’d think that as the CEO of a healthcare delivery company, I’d have no problem finding a great doctor in my own organization. Let me say that we definitely DO have excellent doctors. But then let me explain, as Dr. Crawford explained to me: she received the same basic training that my own Internists received. However, none of the Internists in my organization sought out functional or root cause analysis training; making her cut a lot of slack to who we all call regular doctors when it comes to them just plain missing the boat diagnostically. I’d prefer to keep my medical history private but I WILL say that Dr. Crawford is the medical detective we ALL want on the case for us and our loved ones. She took me through what I needed to go though and I’m out the other side with her monitoring me for life. Thanks, Dr. Kim! 

I’d like to recommend Dr. Kim to anyone who wants to have 100% personal medical care, unlimited and direct access to your doctor (who else even does this?) and the smartest doctor I’ve ever met at your service. Dr. Kim has kept me younger than my years physically, mentally and dare I say sexually for more than a decade. I don’t worry about aging as long as I have Dr. Kim’s advice and care.

I met Dr. Kim when we were both consultants for the largest fitness consulting company in the world. I was there for motivation and on-site weight loss franchises and Dr. Kim was the consultant for medically-based programs. Even before she completed her functional training, I knew she would turn out to be one of the best functional doctors in the world; and she is!

Otherwise, why would I, a weight loss and fitness expert myself, need to have someone help guide me through my own health journey? Several years ago, I found that I needed her medical expertise and indeed, her weight management expertise, too. I had some minor issues that were truly bothering me, and she cleared them up, and has been my personal medical guru for many years now. l highly recommend Dr. Kim, no matter what your problem is. You’ll never find another doctor who is as accessible and knowledgeable as she is, that’s for sure!

Jeanne Goldberg testimonial review for Dr. Kim Crawford M.D.

Jeanne Goldberg

Retired Businesswoman

My experience as an older senior is that doctors tend to treat in their specialty area only and use medications, meaning pharmaceutical drugs. They seldom focus on treatments that are preventative or suggest behaviors that promote whole body healing. Therefore the chance of staying well as you age are slim.

Dr. Kim Crawford, through her many degreed specialties and extensive research, focuses on total wellness, not on a narrow area. That way, your chances of staying healthy longer…even being and feeling youthful is a definite possibility. I’ve followed her medical advice for 20 years and as I start my 9th decade, I’m healthy and athletic. I don’t look too bad, either, I’m told.

Her style of medicine takes interest, time and patience…all healing traits and skills possessed by Dr. Kim. I highly recommend you contact Dr. Kim to discover the benefits of being her patient and after she gets you well, if you’re sick, hang onto her forever!
