A whole clinic designed to treat the whole person.
Well. Well. Well.
The Center for Complementary Medicine.
The clinic was started in 1988 by Lawrence Cohen, an MD who believed that ignoring alternative therapies made no more sense than eliminating traditional medical practice. Instead, why not consider alternatives that complement standard medicine, evaluate their benefits, find skilled practitioners, and give the patient a full range of options?
Our attention centers on you: how you feel, what you think and what your concerns are. We find this out by doing something practically unheard of in health care these days. We ask you to talk. Stranger still, we listen. This empowers you to participate actively in your own care. It also helps us treat you, not just “the problem.”
The result is a center where health care isn’t scary or intimidating. Where you can find effective care for virtually any chronic, acute, psychological or general health issue you or your family might face. Where first line options aren’t harsh but subtle and gentle, encouraging your body to heal itself. Yet where traditional medical prescriptions and treatment are available if your medical situation requires them.
Dr Cohen is fully trained and licensed in his field, along with years of experience, practice and continuing study. He has a commitment to help you improve your health through personal care. (Dr Cohen retired August 31, 2020)
Well Worth It
Our work isn’t free—our medical approaches are “complementary,” not complimentary. We don’t do insurance, though we will provide the information you need to file yourself. But considering the extensive personal attention you receive, our range of services, and the moderate fees we charge, do expect to get your money’s worth.
We should be. As a clinic, we’ve helpied people discover medical options for over 30 years prior to Dr Cohen’s retirement in August 2020.
