Integrative medicine emphasizes the combination of both conventional and alternative approaches to address the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of health and illness.
On the first visit, new patients are asked to state their primary health concerns and thus the reason for beginning their care at our office. As you visit this site, we urge you to begin with that same intention of clearly identifying your health needs. Then allow us to use our skills to make you feel the way you deserve to feel.
Some people become interested in Integrative Health Group because they or someone they love are wrestling with an urgent health problem.
Some are not satisfied with what they just heard from their current doctor. For quite a few people, this is the first time they are willing to consider an alternative approach to their health..
Many of the patients who come to us are understandably frustrated. Too often they have received a standard one-size-fits-all form of care. In addition, they have been prescribed drugs that frequently do not work, have undesirable side effects, and are intended to be taken indefinitely. Discussion and explanation are minimal or nonexistent in most conventional clinical settings. To compound the problem, the media and internet are filled with so much conflicting information that patients often do not know what they should do.
Integrative Health Group emphasizes respect for the human capacity for healing, the importance of the relationship between the practitioner and the patient, a collaborative approach to patient care among practitioners, and the practice of conventional, complementary, and alternative health care that is evidence-based.
