Internist

Atlanta Integrative and Internal Medicine is a fully integrated medical practice offering holistic and alternative medicine as well as Western medicine. The goal of a Functional Medicine physician is to enhance the functionality of the body by assessing the entire human body system as a whole in order to discover and treat the root cause of illness, allow the body to heal itself once given proper nutrition and removal of impediments to cure (i.e. toxins, bad habits, etc.). Being an integrative practice, we use numerous modalities to treat a multitude of common and rare conditions, with individualized herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies, acupuncture, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, intravenous therapies, and many others.
