Kind, Compassionate, & Comprehensive Care
Our Mission at Philadelphia Integrative Medicine is to combine the leading edge of conventional and alternative medicine to inspire you and give you the tools to care for yourself and be well.
Welcome to Philadelphia Integrative Medicine!
At PIM we provide integrative, research driven, hands-on care.
We meet daily as a team to discuss your individual plan and healthcare options.
We utilize clinical skills attained from the best training programs in the country, including the Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and the Institute for Functional Medicine.
We incorporate the best of conventional medicine with evidence-based alternative practices—and our integrative approach offers the best of both worlds.
Building on this foundation, we research, discuss and collaborate to give you the most thoughtful and effective treatments options to address both symptoms and root causes.
During visits, we have enough time to hear your concerns, interpret your results, communicate our clinical recomendations as well as our rationale.
Looking forward to meeting you,

We Get to the Root Cause
How are we different?
Integrative Medicine, as taught at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (AzCIM) fellowship, is the judicious combination of traditional medicine as taught in medical school with evidence-based modalities. We,at Philadelphia Integrative Medicine (PIM), provide leading edge clinical expertise using a combination of conventional and evidence-based alternative and holistic medicine including:
- The role of food, supplements and beneficial gut bacteria in healing and prevention of illness
- The informed use of insurance-reimbursed and evidence based alternative testing
- Alternative medical systems (such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda)
- Mind-body medicine including a regular home practice
- Energy medicine including acupuncture, as well as hands on methods (such as counter-strain) to reduce discomfort, improve alignment and treat injury
What do we do at PIM?
We provide leading edge clinical expertise using a combination of conventional and evidence-based alternative and holistic medicine, to recommend the lifestyle changes, cutting edge diagnostic testing, mind-body practices, supplements and medicines to meet your personal health goals. Our approach helps you achieve better health, including the physical, emotional, psychological and social dimensions.
At PIM we also utilize Functional Medicine which looks beyond diagnoses to each person’s unique biochemistry. Individualized recommendations are based on the latest specialty testing and laboratory technology.
You will also be introduced to Mindfulness. This will cultivate awareness of mind-body inter-dependence and how unconscious behaviors undermine health. Mindfulness positively affects blood pressure, absorption, immunity and autoimmunity and emotional reactivity and is an integral part of holistic and alternative medicine practices.
