After many years in emergency medicine and urgent care, Dr. Katherine became the fourth MD in South Carolina to be certified by the Institute for Functional Medicine. For more than a decade, she treated patients for illnesses but not their causes. She realized that she had an obligation to the pursuit of health beyond just the absence of disease. Now, Dr. Katherine devotes herself full-time to her passion: the pursuit of total wellness in her patients.
When not seeing patients in the office, she is continually learning from the best in her field by attending conferences worldwide, reading voraciously, and working one-on-one with her many mentors. She prefers to keep her practice small so she can continue to deliver the best in cutting-edge wellness therapies.
Dr. Katherine is accredited by the Institute for Functional Medicine, American Board of Emergency Medicine, American Board of Pediatrics and the SC State Board of Medical Examiners.
I truly appreciate the high level of care and “extra mile” of proactive effort that many physicians simply don’t offer. I know I and my overall wellness are in great hands!
“Thank you so much. I am feeling better. Able to handle life’s hurdles with renewed stamina. You have been warm, responsive, efficient, and thorough. So pleased you are guiding my wellness!”
Dr. Birchenough is fabulous! She has inspired me to be in the best health possible. I haven’t felt this great in decades and it’s ALL owed to her. I feel so blessed to have become a patient of hers. I can’t THANK her enough!
