“When seeing a medical professional, I greatly appreciate not just a pill and a bill, but someone willing to help you learn about the body and best maintain good health. You effectively communicated and educated me about the cause, diagnosis and treatment, steering me to good health. I highly recommend you.”

I believe that medicine is not just about healing; it’s also about staying healthy. Integrative medicine recognizes that complementary and traditional medical therapies play important - but different - roles in keeping you healthy. Integrative medicine is based on the premise that no single therapy can provide a complete solution to optimal health. It borrows the best science-based aspects of conventional and alternative therapies to treat the immediate problem AND identify the conditions that caused the problem in the first place.

Integrative Medicine Conventional Medicine
Uses both conventional and alternative medicines to treat the immediate problem AND identifies and treats the cause of the problem to help you achieve and maintain peak performance and health. Focuses on health care & promotion rather than just disease & symptom management Treats the immediate problem using drugs and surgery, giving you “a pill and a bill.” Symptom-based treatment of health-related conditions.
