The Center for Wellness
A Medical and Integrative Medicine Practice in Charlotte, NC
We strive to help you achieve optimal health through a preventive, nutritional, and environmental approach to medicine. We will assess and treat you as a whole person and not simply an illness.
"We have become masters in the science of pharmaceutical interventions, but in the process have left the foundation of nutritional biochemistry and environmental influences on illness behind."
Our goal is to bring these two extremes into proper balance for the betterment of your health. We see and treat a large array of illnesses often helping those who could not be helped elsewhere. We also offer preventative medicine services from hormone replacement therapy to nutritional assessments. We hope to be of service to you soon.
