Integrative oncology is the rational, evidence-based combination of conventional therapy with complementary interventions into an individualized therapeutic regimen that addresses the whole person living with and beyond cancer — body, mind, and spirit.
In an truly integrated system, the concept of Integrative Medicine reaches it’s potential. With focus on the patient in the center of the circle, all of the different modalities in the system surround the patient figuratively, from primary care physician, to specialist, to integrative medicine physician, and we offer what we can to the patient in order that they achieve optimal health
