Integrated Health Center was created with profound passion and commitment to help patients reverse their disease instead of just managing it. We are on the frontlines of providing services that are drawn from well-documented scientific literature to successfully relieve the suffering of patients afflicted with chronic conditions such as such as type II diabetes and hypothyroidism.
Our services provide documented methods and protocols utilized by successful healthcare providers throughout North America. We are privileged to now bring these services to South Florida.
Our protocols and therapies are drawn mostly from innovative groups and paradigms within what has become known as the field of Functional Medicine.
It is our sole mission to help our patients uncover and correct the underlying mechanisms of their disease process. This is done through very thorough testing and examination that is able to lead us to what we feel is a comprehensive diagnosis. We strive to work beyond the label of a patient’s disease, and work customizing unique care for the individual.
