Dr. Stec is the founder of Vitae Health Care in Stamford, Connecticut. She graduated from the Lublin Medical Academy in Poland and became board certified in ophthalmology. After arriving to the United States, she passed the required licensing examinations and went into residency training in Family Practice and in Anesthesiology. Subsequently she opened up her General Medicine practice. She has received extensive training in anti-aging medicine, through A4M, and also through the Institute for Functional Medicine. She has over 30 years of clinical experience.
Her interest and transition into Functional Medicine occurred more than a decade ago and started when she experienced her own health decline and chronic fatigue. Unfortunately her concerns weren’t addressed with a traditional approach. She started thinking that there has to be something else out there, something better. Dr. Stec started attending anti-aging and Functional Medicine conferences. As she dove into functional and biomedical treatments, she realized that she has entered another world that medical school did not expose her to. After applying these treatments and witnessing their effectiveness herself, it made obvious sense to her that it was the right approach for many health issues. Dr. Stec continues her education by attending several conferences and by gradually shifting her practice into Functional Medicine.
Dr. Stec’s practice is mainly focused on people who suffer from painful chronic degenerative and autoimmune conditions, including gluten sensitivity and food allergies.
