Integrative Medicine - A Holistic Approach To Wellness
Dr. Chris Roberts is completing a fellowship with plans to pursue a Master's Degree in Functional Metabolic Medicine to embrace an essential element of health and wellness treatment. His pursuit of more effective treatments makes him the first physician in this region to embrace and employ integrative medicine.
Dr. Chris Roberts has a true passion for developing a holistic practice of integrative health - combining traditional medicine with complementary (alternative) treatment plans. This aspect of healthcare involves optimizing hormones, restoring nutrient deficiencies, and improving metabolic reactions that allow the body to perform at a peak level.
The American Board of Medical Specialties® and the American Board of Integrative Medicine® recognize integrative medicine as a separate and distinct subspecialty. This distinction has added tremendous credibility and support to this more personalized approach to healthcare delivery. Integrative medicine treats the "whole person" with scientifically-validated therapies including a blend of conventional medicine and select practices of complementary and alternative medicine.
“The practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.”
