Our commitment is helping our patients achieve optimum health and balance. We combine the best evidence-based care from complementary/alternative and conventional medicine. Although conventionally trained, we prefer to use the more natural and gentler methods of complementary/alternative medicine whenever possible.
We use diet, exercise, nutritional and herbal supplements, lifestyle changes, and mind-body practices such as relaxation and Interactive Guided Imagery. Although we do not serve as Primary Care Providers, we will work with your PCP. We also work with, and can refer you to, other complementary/alternative or conventional health-care practitioners as needed.
