Matthew Willis, Doctor at Advanced Functional Medicine, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in functional medicine, diagnosis and internal disorders.

Upon graduating with a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine degree from the National University of Health Sciences in Chicago in 2013, he also achieved additional four-year board certification in internal medicine with an emphasis on functional medicine and family practice. He matriculated at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, earning a Bachelor of Science in philosophy in 2007 and a Bachelor of Science in pre-med in 2009. Upon completion of his degrees, he also became a board-certified internist by the Council of Diagnosis and Internal Disorders in 2015.

Since 2014, Dr. Willis has held the positions of the owner of Advanced Functional Medicine of Orange County and Advanced Functional Medicine of Los Angeles, as well as owner and doctor of Advanced Functional Medicine in San Diego. Reflecting on his career, he is honored to have been able to break the confines of traditional medicine. He is able to spend time with his patients and truly listens to not only the physical symptoms but also the mental, emotional and even spiritual impacts they have on their quality of life. He can then determine what specific diagnostic tests to run to get to the root cause of the issues or symptoms and create a customized care plan tailored to the individual. This becomes a very effective style of healthcare, as opposed to the one-size-fits-all of the traditional drug therapy model. Notably, Dr. Willis authored “The Truth about Type 2 Diabetes,” in 2018.

As a testament to his success, Dr. Willis was named to Best Medical Clinics in San Diego in 2020 and Best Medical Office from 2018 to 2020. He has also been honored for Best of Diabetes Care in Southern California, Apex Energetics Clinician of the Year and Favorite Health Speaker by the Wellness Foundation. Notably, Dr. Willis is an inducted member of the Institute for Functional Medicine, Council on Diagnosis of Internal Disorders, Alzheimer’s Family Organization, American Diabetes Association and the Cancer Control Society. In his spare time, he enjoys helping his three kids with their baseball, basketball and soccer endeavors, which keeps him and his wife very busy. In addition, his wife does a lot with the fundraising and donations for the sports teams. Dr. Willis and his family are also involved with the Foothills Church.
