"I got into medicine because the health care system I experienced was broken. Time and again I was faced with providers, who in my experience, didn’t listen and became uninterested when their approach wasn’t working or an alternative was suggested. It felt like they didn’t care. They were burnt out and when I asked questions they became defensive, or it became apparent they didn’t have an answer and didn't care to find one. My issues were complex, it wasn’t a simple cut and dry situation. I had a plethora of symptoms I couldn’t explain and no one had answers for me. This was discouraging to say the least. I felt abandoned by the very people who were supposed to be there to help.
Eventually I found some outstanding healers; sometimes in modern allopathic medicine and sometimes in the wisdom of the indigenous practitioners of 3rd world countries. I put the pieces together for myself with a lot of work. I have also experienced both of my parents struggles with cancer and chronic disease. Eventually I shared what I learned and pointed people in directions that had been helpful to me. However, it always seemed like I could do more if I only had a larger toolbox.
I was drawn into medicine by my own journey through Lymes disease, Epstein Barr virus, mast cell activation dysfunction, fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, nearly dying from MRSA and osteomyelitis and the painful and heartbreaking struggles of the people I love. I believe that no one should have to go through life feeling the way I felt. I never bought that it was normal… or in my mind as was sometimes suggested. I despised the implications that I was a person with imagined illnesses and a lack of zest for life. You see I had been healthy; I had felt amazing at one time in life and I knew that we all had the potential for feeling that way all the time. I never gave up. And I found answers.
Today after 27 years spending countless hours teaching myself by pouring over books and studies and workshops, investigating, trial and error, 9 years of formal education and the blessings of amazing patients to learn from and with, I have arrived at a place where I feel like I can really help people. And I still don’t know enough and I likely never will. But what I do know is that I will listen to you and I will do my best to find out. If I don’t think I can help you I will call upon my peers and my mentors, who are some of the most amazing minds in medicine, and find someone who can. I will be your partner in your journey to health." - Chyrl Mosley, FNP-BC
Chyrl wanted to create a different experience of medicine and bring something to health care that was refreshing and new… something that married the wisdom of ancestral medicine with cutting edge science . Chyrl’s passion for health and wellness was the birth space of her vision for a clinic where people in our community could be heard and build a trusting relationship for long term care and the treatment of chronic complex issues requiring a deeper dive and more personalized investigation and care.
At The Fork Functional Medicine, we want you to walk away from your appointment feeling heard, cared for, and with a better understanding of your condition as well as what your options are for recovering health and well-being… whether it be in our community clinic or our functional medicine practice.

We assess the current state of your body, determine where imbalances are occurring, and focus on potential predispositions you may have for disease or illness. One size does not fit all when it comes to matters of the body, and thus our thorough investigative process allows us to uncover the root cause of your health challenges, and move forward with a treatment plan tailor fit just for you.
