meet Dr. Fetters
Dr. Clifford Fetters is a born and raised Indianan who has decades of experience treating men, women, and children in Indianapolis, IN and surrounding cities. A summa cum laude graduate from Indiana State University, Dr. Fetters went on to complete his family practice residency at Fort Wayne Medical Education. Encouraged by a long-loved colleague to use prescription medication sparingly, Dr. Fetters started to practice functional and holistic medicine. Through a vast amount of research via conferences, journals, books, and being taught by some of the leaders in functional medicine, Dr. Fetters has developed programs for nearly all chronic conditions and has become nationally recognized for his work. His goal is to integrate the latest technologies, scientific discoveries, and practical applications of functional medicine to provide his patients with wellness without the use of prescription drugs.
Dr. Fetters was at the forefront of the idea of treating conditions and diseases by addressing the patient's physiology rather than relying on prescription drugs. In 1989, Dr. Fetters was an instrumental component in treating postmenopausal women with bioidentical hormones and organized a movement to encourage insurance companies to pay for such treatments. In the early 1990s, he was a pioneer in screening a treatment program for insulin that all but eliminated diabetes from his practice.

"Finally a place that looks for the reason behind symptoms not just throw medicines at you!While I have a ways to go to be well, Amanda Patchett, FNP-C listens to me and thinks outside the box to figure out the root of the issues by ordering tests, usual and not so usual, or by recommending a supplement known to help. I am so much further than years before and hoping we are heading the right direction to get me 100% soon!"
"Great Doctor! - I've went to several drs over the years who would just write a prescription for my symptoms. After so many years of horrible side affects I finally went to Dr Fetters. I'm so glad I did! He listens to your symptoms orders some labs/tests needed and gets to the root problem of whats actually causing the symptoms. Based on all the data he then will let you know what natural options there are that will help heal you. He does prescribe prescriptions too but works with patient to determine what the best avenue is and allows the patient to make that choice. So really you are taking charge of your own health with alternatives not given elsewhere! He doesn't mind you buying supplements elsewhere but his are pharmaceutical grade so we all know you get what you pay for. I actually did research on a couple he prescribed and his are better quality for sure and are only sold to doctors/practitioners. Great down to earth demeanor!"
"Amazing Dr - I need to comment on the care my son has received from Dr Fetters. For 8 months no drs listened to me about what I thought contributed to my sons condition, no drs helped me form a plan to rid the issue vs just treating the symptoms. Dr Fetters did. We got more answers from a simple blood test he knew to order than 8 months at Comers. He spent a great deal of time with us and ACTUALLY evaluates you when you come see him. I see people making comments about him recommending too many supplements, but sadly, in our toxic world, it is needed. This man is amazing as far as I'm concerned and if you are holistic minded, you will see that."
"Knowledgeable Doctor! - I started seeing Dr Fetters a little over a year ago. After just two months of being on the treatment plan he created for me, I noticed improvement in most of my symptoms and some completely went away as time went on. It has been pretty impressive since I had been on some pretty bad drugs for several years, of which I had went off of in search of a more natural route. Too, I wasn’t even able to do everything he recommended, but I did most. Now that I am no longer able to continue most of my treatment, it’s been a ‘wow’ moment because some of my symptoms have already returned. So all I can say, is that his treatments did work for me! His supplements are better quality than what I bought at the store and the IV Vit C’s were amazing!!! I truly believe if I had been able to do the entire treatment plan and had been able to remove myself from a toxic environment and circumstances, I believe I would be totally recovered by now. If anyone out there is hesitant about investing in your health, you really should check this doctor out!"
"Thankful - Awesome Doctor!"
