Dr. Ginnan, an expert on healing the body from the inside-out, loves helping patients who feel they've reached the "end-of-their-road", get better! Dr. Ginnan is well proficient in functional medicine, which looks at the underlying causes of a certain health condition, and strives to treat the actual imbalances that lead to the development of the disease, rather than the symptoms themselves.
Functional medicine allows Dr. Ginnan to improve the lives of his patients by finding and removing dysfunction and returning the body to a balanced state. This often translates to decreased pain, improved balance and increased energy, among many others. These changes are orchestrated thorough patient education and positive one-on-one interactions with Dr. Ginnan as well as those of the other holistic specialists of Virginia Integrative Health.

Helpful and competent. Always a pleasure.
Beware it's mostly about testing to charge your insurance as much as possible... not really a standard care doctor and not in a good way...
Great ! Friendly staff, very competent. Doctor Shannon Ginnan takes time to talk, to explain, he keeps it on the humane side. What a difference he makes !!!
Dr. G's approach, interpersonal style and professionalism are exceptional. His focus on the underlying issues and holistic approach are refreshing and confident building. The entire team were service focused and took the time needed to explain the actions we were taking.
With Dr. Ginnan, you get state of the art, integrated care - but also a level of commitment and compassion which is rare in most healthcare models and practices these days. He is thoughtful and intellectually curious by nature - and will work with you to optimize your health, even if your case is complicated and atypical. He is never condescending and is respectful of his patients' thoughts and opinions. He does not lose sight of the fact that you, after all, are the one living in that body, and you might have some important clues to share. The relationship is collaborative, and I believe the outcomes that can be achieved are immeasurably enhanced by this.
Great doctor, great staff. Best decision i ever made for myself and my overall health. No "regular" doctor could figure out what was wrong with me, I had lost hope in doctors and in finding a cure for my symptoms. Dr. Ginnan knows exactly what to test for and I am finally on a path to being symptom free. Everyone in the office makes you feel like family... Such a nice change.
This practice has continually cared for me in the old fashioned way that doctors used to care about their patients. Highly recommended for gaining your health back and reduce the pains of getting older.
Stellar as aways!!! He and his staff take the time needed to get to the root cause of your symptoms/condition with care and compassion. You can tell that he truly likes and cares for his patients' wefare in he and his team's dedication to every detail. His medicine is state of the art as well. His office takes most forms of insurance too.
Dr. Ginnan was great but I'm giving a low rating for the wait time. My appointment was at 9am. I arrived early in order to complete the usual necessary paperwork prior to my appointment in order to be seen by the doctor at 9am. Unfortunately the office door was locked as the receptionist was not in yet. Gladly Dr. Ginnan, still saw me at 9am and asked the usual questions that would've been answered in the paperwork. Word of advice to the office staff would be if you have patients coming in at 9am, the office should be open at least at 8:30am. Overall the appointment went well. The doctor was kind, patient, and knowledgable. He also took the time to discuss things with me and allowed me to ask questions.
I have been seeing Dr. Gannon for about 3 months. It is refreshing to have a doctor who actually spends more than a token amount of time with you. Significantly, he picked up several fairly serious problems missed by my prior Kaiser Permanente doctor. I also just completed the 6 week repair and clean program. It wasn't easy (and he warned me about what to expect) but I feel much better and lost 18 pounds.
Delay in being seen was due to insurance company's website being down. No fault of Doctor or staff. :)
Professional. Informative. Helpful. Explained results in a conversational manner.
Dr. Ginnan diagnoses with unaparalled, surgical precision -- like no other healthcare provider I have seen in either alternative or conventional medicine in over 25 years! Moreover, he and his team are true exceptions to today’s fragmented and dysfunctional health care system. They are both compassionate and listen carefully, while striving to give each and everyone of their patient’s the best healthcare available. They do so by utilizing the latest knowledge from both the conventional and alternative medicine worlds and applying appropriate healing modalities. Dr. Ginnan and his staff stand out as bright, outstanding stars in contrast to our contemporary, dysfunctional medicine system. It is the way medicine should be!! His commitment to his patients even extends to accepting most forms of medical insurance, a rarity for sure these days. Lisa B.
Very Through Lab Results that were discussed with me
For years, we have jumped from doctor to doctor looking for an answer for my daughter’s ailments. Dr. Ginnan made us feel right at home and carefully listened to our concerns. By the time, the appointment was over we were in tears as we knew our search was over. Dr. Ginnan not only believed us, but we knew he would do everything possible to help us. Thank you, Dr. Ginnan!
Dr Ginnan, takes the time to explain things to you, answer any questions you may have. He is very patient with you, and listen to you until you are finished.
Nice doctor, but I am very unhappy with office's service as a whole.
I am indebted to Dr. Ginnan and his staff as he quite literally saved my life by diagnosing a condition no other provider had recognized. How can one say enough!
