Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine is the combination of conventional Western medicine and complementary and alternative medicine treatments, blended in a personalized way that treats the patient in the most effective way possible. The practitioner and the patient work together in the healing process, treating the whole person (mind, body, spirit, and community) and not just the disease.

The Integrative Medicine practice at the Centers for Complementary Medicine was established in January of 2012. This practice is based on a combination of visits that provide information and motivation to facilitate changes for a healthier lifestyle. It is appropriate for proactive health and wellness as well as to provide adjunct support with chronic health conditions. We encourage our patients to get the most out of their experience by utilizing our Integrative Medicine Package, which includes:

  • 1 hour consultation with our Integrative Medicine Physician, Dr. Tracy McCubbin
  • 1 hour consultation with our Nutritionist, Shari Engkvist
  • 30 minute follow-up visit with the Nutritionist
  • Demo Kitchen cooking classes

Patients can also schedule consultations individually with our Physician or with our Nutritionist.
