According to the World Health Organization, health is defined as: “A state of optimal well-being, not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.”


Optimal health requires a balance between the physical, mental, emotional, environmental, spiritual, and social components of our lives. This integrated perspective of optimal well-being recognizes the importance on each dimension as well as their sum total. An individual’s well-being and vitality is greater than the sum of his or her parts. Although this concept has been around since Hippocrates, it seems to have been lost with the rise of conventional medicine and its reliance on specialization, technology, and separating the disease from the person.

Today, a paradigm shift is taking place as evidence-based medicine and complementary approaches are integrated into a total treatment regimen.

Optimal health is an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence.

This healthy balance of the mind, body, and spirit results in the overall feeling of well-being. Our physicians and health care team work to understand the whole you – what makes you tick, what inspires you, and what keeps you up at night – your entire health picture. We provide far more than a check up and our focus is on you, not just your illness.

We believe in providing patients with the tools they need to make healthy choices. We spend the time with you so we can  understand what you need and what we can do to optimize your health on all levels.
