Affinity was founded by Doctor Michael Austin, D.O. who is a member, Fellow and Board Certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. He has been serving the Tampa Bay community for over 30 years.
Dr. Austin encompasses Functional / Metabolic Medicine in his practice. This includes the diagnosing and treatment of hormonal issues in both males and females, thyroid issues, gastrointestinal problems, cholesterol issues, weight loss, medical cannabis care and prevention of diseases and other functional / metabolic problems.
Doctor Austin firmly believes the answer is not just in covering up symptoms with a pill. He believes in getting to the root of the problem and repairing or correcting the issue so the body can then function correctly again.
Doctor Austin served active duty in the Air Force as an Emergency Physician, was involved in Operation Desert Storm and also served as one of General H. Norman Schwartzkopf’s personal physicians while in Saudi Arabia. For almost 10 years he was a reserve Deputy Sheriff with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department.

"Virtually every complex, chronic disease is preceded by long-term disturbances in functionality. Most of these disturbances can be addressed; some can be completely restored to optimum function, and others can be substantially improved."
Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based health care approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.
Functional Medicine focuses on understanding the fundamental physiological processes, the environmental inputs, and the genetic predispositions that influence health and disease so that interventions are focused on treating the cause of the problem, not just masking the symptoms.
We utilize LivingMatric™, a powerful tool that enables you to easily document the unfolding phenomena that lead to ill health - a process that often occurs over many years, perhaps a lifetime. It gives us the "Big Picture" so you can take the necessary steps to build back your health. Developed by the Institute for Functional Medicine. It is a detailed analysis of triggers and antecedents for impabance and disease
Cannabis comes in a variety of forms and includes numerous medical and therapeutic effects. Used medically, it works on our body's Endocannabanoid System. Two main components of cannabis are THC and CBD (cannabadiol). CBD is non-psychoactive and can be obtained at Affinity.
