Meet The Doctor

Dr. Loy Anderson, MD, is board-certified in Family Medicine and Functional Medicine, and has been caring for families and patients of all ages for over 25 years. She completed undergraduate training with a BS in Biology at Walla Walla University in 1991, followed by her MD at Loma Linda University in 1996. After a 3-year residency in Family Medicine, she served 4 years active duty in the Air Force, stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base.

 She practiced at the Great Falls Clinic from 2004 to 2017, working in the hospital, urgent care, and clinic. Her favorite part of practicing at the Clinic was the long-term relationships with her patients. She has lectured on women’s health, stress management, inflammation, hormones, and weight loss, and is a passionate educator dedicated to helping her patients create wellness.

 Dr. Loy found, however, that mainstream medicine was not providing all the answers she needed for her patients, or the optimal results they were looking for. So, in 2015, she began training in functional medicine, and completed the rigorous certification process through the Institute of Functional Medicine in 2018.

 The doors of Thriven Functional Medicine Clinic opened in May of2017, and Dr. Loy left the Great Falls Clinic to enter full time into her new passion of functional medicine in October 2017. She combines her extensive experience and skills in traditional western medicine with the innovative and intuitive power of functionalmedicine to offer you the best of both. An amazing team has come together to provide unsurpassed care in creating abundant healthwith lasting results.
