Good Medicine, which is a name change from Indian Creek Integrative Medicine, is a practice built upon the belief that medicine should not be a pharmaceutical biased, disease identification model. It should rather be focused on identifying the cause of disease and repairing this cause rather than just treating the symptoms of disease. For example, if your sink is overflowing, which is better, a plumber or a mop salesman? In the same way functional medicine, on which Good Medicine is based, strives to be the plumber and fix the sink rather than making money selling mops. It’s with this belief Good Medicine was established and why after 8 years of a very successful traditional practice that I changed course and for the last 4 years have pursued a more encompassing model of disease that connects the dots of symptoms to help create a picture of why a patient is having those symptoms.
This has been a highly successful model with an increasing patient base of people actively seeking a physician who can see the “whole picture”. I have fallen in love with medicine again and have never been more challenged than with this functional model of medicine. I take joy in seeing the patients that have been everywhere else and have reached dead ends because their disease cannot be put into a nice “diagnosis” box. I look forward to treating you as an individual with your own unique set of issues and helping you gain the tools you need to stay healthy.
