"I love integrative and functional medicine. Everything we do has evidence--in fact it's how all providers should practice. I help my patients see their own powerful role in their health and recovery.
I love spending time with my patients and seeing them get better!" -Dr. Georgia Tetlow

Dr. Tetlow's journey to integrative medicine...
"When I was 23, a close friend told me I'd make a great doctor and it stuck. I had always wanted to bring a body, mind, spirit approach to my work, and I was concerned I'd lose these values when I prepared to enter conventional training at UNC Chapel Hill Medical School. Years later, after medical school and residency, I learned of the University of Arizona Fellowship in Integrative Medicine. For me, the Fellowship represented a path that combined my yoga and mindfulness teacher self with my medically trained self. I went for it! I was already certified in Ayurveda, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and working as Medical Director of Integrative Medicine in my hospital network. The Fellowship provided me with a peer group and a much deeper knowledge base from which to practice. In addition, I have greatly benefited from the Institute of Functional Medicine curriculum, which taught me about integrative medicine testing in depth, as well as further provided the medical and research references, articles and background for what we do at PIM." - Georgia Tetlow
