Dr Cohen is Retiring

Supplement Ordering Will Still Be Available After Dr Cohen's Retirement

Dear Patient,

It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter informing you of my intention to close my medical practice effective August 31, 2020.  On the one hand, I look forward to the next phase of my life in retirement, spending more time with my family and friends, and taking it a bit easier after 32 years of practicing medicine in San Antonio.  On the other hand, I will miss the valuable and meaningful relationships I have developed with all of my patients.   I want to thank you for entrusting me with your care over these many years.

Your medical records are confidential and will be stored and accessible to you upon written request.  If you would like a copy of your medical file, please call Lupe Rodriguez at 210.733.0990 or email Lupe at:, and she can arrange to have a copy made and available to you for a small fee.   If you would like to transfer your records to another provider, please request an authorized medical release  form from them.

If you are in need of any refills for your medications, including those that may require lab tests prior to refilling, please contact the office at 210.733.0990 as soon as possible, so that you have adequate supply during the transition period.   Please note that I will not be writing any prescriptions after August 31, 2020.

Again, I appreciate the opportunity and privilege of serving you.  I will be available to consult with current patients through August 31, 2020.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at, and your message will be forwarded to me.


Lawrence M. Cohen, M.D.

We Bring Wellness Into Being

The human body is a system designed to heal itself but often, because of a stressful lifestyle, medical treatments, traumatic injuries, aging, environmental toxicity ,and genetics , you may not feel well and develop a “chronic” condition. Maybe you hurt, have low energy, have been diagnosed with a specific condition or simply don’t feel like yourself.

When this happens, many individuals turn to their doctor for help, medicine and treatment. For some people this effort is enough, but for others things remain  “stuck”. We know that health is impacted by psychological, physiologic , environmental and genetic factors and that each person’s journey to wellness is unique.

Lawrence M. Cohen, MD has worked in the field of Functional/Integrative Medicine (also known  as Complementary Medicine) since 1981 (click here for full bio). During that time, he has seen thousands of patients and has learned that the path to wellness begins with listening.

It is through the stories that clients share with him that Dr. Cohen begins to undo the knot that is blocking wellness, taking in to account the whole person and their unique personal history, psychology, physiology, and genetics. With this information and his decades of experience, Dr. Cohen is able to work collaboratively with clients to develop a plan that allows their bodies to , release ,strengthen and heal.

At the heart of his philosophy is the belief that individuals should be involved in their care and have a full range of options (click here to read about What To Expect at your appointments). Dr. Cohen has a wealth of experience in treating complex illnesses using both Traditional and Integrative Medicine. His decades of experience working with certified and licensed practitioners allows him to provide referrals to appropriate practitioners as needed.

Imagine, the best of Western Medicine and the mind, body, hormonal, diet and lifestyle alternatives of Integrative Medicine.
