About The Whole List Doc - Functional Medicine In Columbus

The Whole List Doc

Unlike conventional medicine that focuses more on the diagnosis and prescription, our team at The Whole List Doc takes a much more holistic approach: By focusing on why your symptoms manifest the way they do. We seek to identify the root cause behind your chronic dis-ease – so that we can craft a personalized plan just for you.

Our Core Values Of Care

An Integrative Approach

Unlike conventional medical care, we first help patients heal and then empower them with the knowledge and tools to avoid many of the pitfalls that created their illness in the first place. No matter where you are right now... with our expert guidance you can heal and lead a vibrant life!


Guided step-by-step by our care team, you will implement an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the most up-to-date nutritional science and lifestyle medicine, to significantly improve your health and alleviate symptoms.

Dedicated Attention

In your typical 7-minute doctor's visit, there is little time to understand the depth of your illness... let alone the contributing factors that may have caused it.
During your in-depth intake consultation, we take the time needed, one-on-one, to conduct a thorough review to understand all the potential triggers for your illness. This review includes your past medical history, your past and present diet, environment, stress levels, and gut health. Your in-depth health history is the start to unraveling the root causes of you illness.

Personalized Care

Not only is each patient biologically unique, but their illness is unique too. There are so many factors that may be to blame for your illness – from lifestyle choices, food choices, allergies and even toxins in your immediate environment... plus let's not forget mindset (which plays a big role of your health).

After we do your intake, we may conduct further specialty lab tests (that your current doctor may not even know about). Plus, we also use other assessment tools to get the full picture of your health so that with a precise diagnosis, we can come up with a precise "healing prescription."

Innovative Treatments

Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into your conventional doctor's office? That means many health care practitioners are dispensing outdated advice and not using the best lab testing available for your case. Chances are they are not even aware of the proper testing that could make all the difference in your healing plan.

At The Whole List Doc, we are trained in up-to-date medicine – including the best, most advanced testing and we pair that with current nutritional science so that you can finally achieve your health goals .

Root Cause Resolution

Unlike conventionally-trained doctors, our care team always focuses on getting to the root causes of your illness. We also examine the key cellular imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.

Also known as functional medicine, our care is so effective because we focus on dealing with the "up-stream" catalyst of chronic illnesses – including toxicity in your home or work-place, potential food intolerances and allergies, gut & hormonal imbalances, along with mindset issue that all determine how healthy you are to date.

Co-Creating Health

Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting, but we teach you how to use mindset tools to overcome stubborn habits that aren't serving you any longer. We make the prospect of getting healthy "fun" and have a wide range of tools in place to support you during your health transformation and beyond.

We also leverage health coaching and other forms of support and accountability so your new healing lifestyle practices can become an integral part of your everyday life. We also harness the support of online communities to give you support remotely, as you make important changes that translate into lasting health.

It's only been a month under Dr. Khawaja's care, but I can honestly say that every aspect of my life has improved. I had very specific goals and she has helped me accomplish them. It is such a worth-while investment, I only wish I had started sooner!

Dr. Saima's caring heart is so evident when working with her. I love her whole approach to care. If you are looking for a doctor who genuinely wants the best for you and supports you she's the best!

I received a cancer diagnosis in 2023. I started researching how to heal the body. I made the decision to try some alternatives to the standard protocols of treatment. My state has very few resources so I started looking for certified functional medicine doctors within a three hour radius and knew immediately after reading every detail on Dr. Khawaja’s website that she could be an excellent option for me. After our initial phone call, I felt reassured. She and her staff treat the entire person and not just the disease. We started with extensive testing and it was very clear to me why I was in this situation. I have a very detailed plan that includes appropriate supplements, monitoring, a health coach, and IV Ozone therapy. I have learned so much about things to do at home also. Dr. Khawaja and her staff provide the most professional care and have included me in my care. I could not recommend them more highly.

I had a weird throat thing going on, it appeared randomly and the pain was severe. Dr Khawaja looked at my throat and knew right away what concoction of homeopathic medicine and vitamins to give me. I was seriously better the next day, and I could eat and swallow without pain again! My son quickly got the same throat thing and she was more than willing to treat him as well, and same thing, she gave me just the right concoction for him and he was better in no time. Her extensive knowledge of functional medicine is astounding and I’m forever grateful that I get to experience it! The Whole List Doc makes us all a Whole lot better :D

Dr. Khawaja helped me within a few months with lack of energy and digestion issues primarily. After completing the initial lab testing, she started me on the supplements that she thought that I needed based on the results. I also started eating much cleaner as she advised. Within a short amount of time, I dropped 15 lbs back to my “normal” weight and have almost no bloating or constipation now. My energy is also better, and I even notice other benefits that were not chief complaints such as less headaches, heartburn and having to take less or no allergy medicine now. It has been a true pleasure to work with Dr Khawaja.

I was the sickest I had been in a long time when I turned to Dr. Khawaja and her wonderful staff at The Whole List Doc. I could barely breathe/swallow because my throat was in so much pain. I was running a fever and my whole body ached. I was completely convinced that I had COVID or Strep because it was that bad. Dr. Khawaja looked at all of my symptoms and took time to tailor a set of homeopathies for me to take. I’m not over exaggerating when I say that I felt completely normal within 24 hours of taking them. I’ll even admit that I had my doubts, but I was willing to try anything. I’m a believer in homeopathic medicine and especially The Whole List Doc now. Thanks again for actually listening and taking time to get me better without just prescribing a medication. You were a breath of fresh air in the medical field.

I came in feeling defeated, and unheard from several doctors previously. I left my appointment feeling completely heard and understood, a purpose to live, and excited to choose to make a change for myself!

I have had chronic GI issues for well over two years before I started seeing Dr. Khawaja and her team. I underwent all the traditional tests and remedies but to no avail. I am delighted to report that after just ten weeks in her care, all of my troublesome GI issues have been completely resolved. The doctor, along with her entire team, are knowledgeable, sincere, and committed to making those in their care Whole again. Five stars from me, all the way!

2023 started out badly for me. I had been wrestling with two autoimmune thyroid disorders for over a decade, and I guess my body decided it just couldn't take it anymore. I was having some symptoms that didn't line up with classic thyroid symptoms. The worst of which being, a constant state of dizziness. I was also having "panic attacks" and was in a constant state of anxiety. I was exhausted even though I had literally not done anything that day. I could not sleep even though I was completely out-of-my-mind tired. I was incredibly irritable with my loved ones. And could not keep a thought in my brain. All of this interfered with my life greatly. I self imposed no driving for safety because of the dizziness I was having. My children were not able to rely on me for their day to day needs and the partner my husband had, had disappeared. I started seeking out advice from my healthcare practitioners which included a chiropractor, an endocrinologist, my general practitioner, an ENT, a neurologist, and a physical therapist specializing in vestibular rehabilitation. Through all this no one was able to give me any answers.The neurologist and physical therapist came the closest to giving me some relief from the dizziness but they still had no answers as to what was actually going on with my body. Through my husband's tireless research he suggested that we both go on the AIP diet and he also found The Whole List Doc. At first I was very concerned about the financial responsibility there is to see Dr K. But at this point I had already spent thousands of dollars in traditional doctor's offices with no relief. So I did the testing that Dr K. needed me to do, and I found out what is actually going on with my body. As of right now I have been on the AIP diet for 3 months and have been seeing Dr K. for 2 months, and my dizziness is GONE. My depression, anxiety and panic attacks are gone. I don't feel overwhelmed by just doing my day to day living. My thyroid numbers are in good ranges and some symptoms I wasn't even aware I was having, are better. Such as abdominal cramping and bloating, headaches, joint pain and bowel problems. The testing is very specific as to what is going on in your specific body and she can tell you specifically how to address it to make it better. When I think of the first 7 months of this year and how I felt and the money I spent going to the doctor every other week and having no relief, makes these past two months and the cost seem extremely reasonable and well worth it. I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with Dr K. and her office, and continuing to see improvements in my health physically and mentally.
