The Integrative Internal medicine model recognizes the critical role the practitioner-patient relationship plays in a patient’s overall healthcare experience, and it seeks to care for the whole person by taking into account the many interrelated physical and nonphysical factors that affect health, wellness, and disease, including the psychosocial and spiritual dimensions of people’s lives.

Integrative Medicine greatly benefits the patient because it is, by definition, patient-centric. Many patients with complicated medical problems choose Integrative Internal Medicine because they are seeking to reduce their medications, avoid side-effects of those medications, or supplement other care. In many cases, integrative medicine can relieve symptoms that weren’t alleviated through conventional medicine alone. Almost all of his patients come to him seeking a preventative, holistic approach to health.

While people turn to Integrative Internal medicine for many reasons, studies show that the majority do so because they consider it to be more aligned with their values, beliefs, and philosophies about health and life than a strictly conventional (Allopathy) medical approach is. Some prefer the customized, personal care that comes with integrative medicine’s whole-person perspective. Others believe it is only logical to incorporate health strategies into their lives from the widest array of proven approaches possible. They think that Integrative Internal medicine will allow them to achieve or maintain the best health possible. Studies also show that patients who participate in integrative medicine programs realize more profound health benefits than those who don’t.
