Eastside Integrative Medicine
My journey toward integrative medicine began many years ago. I’ve worked as an Emergency Room Nurse (RN, BSN), Critical Care Transport Nurse, Trauma Nurse and Medical-Surgical Telemetry Nurse for over 20 years.
One day while working a shift in a local trauma center, I was taking care of a chronically ill man with high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes who had come into the ER for shortness of breath.
As I was preparing him for discharge, we were discussing the need to follow up with his primary doctor. He looked at me and said, “I don’t have one, no one wants to help me. When I do go to the doctor, they only want to put me on more pills. And I just keep getting sicker.”
This interaction inspired me to research a better way to provide patient-centered Primary Care. By strengthening the body’s innate ability to heal itself, along with medical management of chronic disease, I combine the best of both naturopathic and conventional medicine.
