Integrative Medicine Consultation
Integrative medicine makes use of the best of conventional and alternative medicine. It weighs both approaches while seeking care that is responsive to the needs and health of individual patients. This requires the doctor and patient to work together as a team.
Maine Medical Partners Family Medicine physicians trained in integrative medicine will partner with you to develop a treatment and wellness plan using the best of conventional, complementary, and alternative options.
We focus on optimizing health, preventing illness, and treating acute and chronic conditions.
Frequently Utilized Therapies include:
Appropriate for people who:
- Want to focus on preventing illness and taking charge of their health
- Have been diagnosed with a new problem or condition that has not improved with conventional medical care alone and would like to explore options. (Referrals as needed to appropriate and highly qualified complementary and alternative medicine practitioners.)
Before your first visit you will be asked to complete an intake form designed to help you clarify your needs and help the doctor understand your situation. Your first visit will last about 90 minutes and will include a physical exam and detailed history exploring your lifestyle, values and beliefs, as well as treatment options that interest you. An integrative treatment plan will be designed specifically for you.
