It’s important to point out that integrative medical therapies, by definition, are used in conjunction with conventional medical care, not necessarily in place of it. That’s the key to integrative medicine, and what differentiates it from “alternative medicine.” In integrative medicine, there’s a partnership between the patient, their physician and their integrative medicine provider.
Our aim is to ensure that you are in the best possible health for life. For example, in our executive check-ups, we don’t just want to get you into the ‘normal’ range. Instead, we work with you to ensure that you are in peak health, not just free from disease.
Our consultations are thorough and we use the latest laboratory testing and diagnostic techniques to assess your health. Where necessary, we prescribe conventional medication, but we favor the most natural, least invasive and safest treatments wherever possible. For example, we might use bio-identical hormones, IV therapies, plant-based medication, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques as part of your personalized treatment plan.
There is no one-size-fits-all treatment at our clinic. At Novomed, our doctors ensure you get the most appropriate, customized plan. We want to be your partner in your and your family’s health, not prescriptive. Our aim will be to inform and educate, and to take into account our patients’ concerns and preferences.
