Primary Care

Primary Care can be defined as a model of care that provides a variety of healthcare services, including prevention, wellness, and treatment for common illnesses. Primary Care Providers (PCPs), are the first point of contact for patients and are responsible for addressing most of their personal health care needs. 


Primary Care is important because it can help patients stay well and prevent health issues from worsening. PCPs are most impactful when: 
  • Managing day-to-day health needs.
  • Teaching ways to stay healthy.
  • Treating illness.
  • Coordinating more advanced care when needed.
  • Identifying risk factors.
  • Managing chronic disease care.
  • Offering preventive care.
  • Providing early detection and treatment of disease.
  • Ensuring routine screenings are current.
  • Discussing lifestyle changes.
  • Addressing side effects associated with medications.

How is Integrative Primary Care Different?

As defined by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), “Integrative Health brings conventional and complementary approaches together in a coordinated way.”

As Integrative Primary Care providers, our philosophy is to collaborate with our patients to help them reach their health goals. We employ a set of diagnostic and therapeutic tools including traditional western medicine resources as well as non-traditional therapies, treatments, and assessments.

Our methodology considers the whole person, including one’s mental, physical, and spiritual health. It focuses on the least invasive, least toxic, and most effective methods to help facilitate health.

Reasons to Consider Advanced Integrative Care as Your Primary Care Provider

Personalized Attention

We take the time to get to know our patients on a deeper level, understanding their unique health history, lifestyle, and goals. This allows us to create a personalized treatment plan that considers all aspects of the patient’s life, including diet, exercise, stress levels, and mental health. This personalized approach can lead to better outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.

An Ounce of Prevention

We believe in the power of prevention and work to help patients avoid illness and disease before they occur. This can involve regular check-ups, screenings, and lifestyle changes to help reduce the risk of developing chronic conditions. Consequently, we can help empower patients to live healthier, and more fulfilling lives.

More Expansive Resources

We offer a wide range of treatment options. Rather than relying solely on pharmaceuticals or invasive procedures, we often use a combination of traditional and alternative therapies to help patients achieve optimal health.

Improved Quality of Life

We see the interconnectedness of all aspects of a person’s life and work to help patients achieve a healthy balance. This can lead to improvements in not just physical health but also mental and emotional well-being. Integrative health providers can help patients achieve greater vitality and purpose by taking an integrative approach to healthcare.

Collaborative and Cooperative

We don’t pretend to have all the answers. Just as we collaborate with our patients, we partner with our colleagues outside of our practice to obtain the best outcomes for our patients.

Flexibility in How Care is Provided

Recognizing that in-office visits are not always possible, prudent, or even necessary, AIC offers Telemed as an option. Phone and video visits are a safe and convenient way to receive care for a variety of conditions, and a great way to stay connected to your provider for ongoing care.
