Integrative Medicine Center
Cancer and its treatments can have major effects on the patient and those who are close to the patient. The Integrative Medicine Center works cooperatively with the primary oncology team to build comprehensive and integrative care plans that are personalized, evidence-based and safe to improve health, quality of life and clinical outcomes.
Our team can assist with choices you may face regarding integrative medicine. Richard T. Lee, M.D. and Gabriel Lopez, M.D. provide advice to patients who wish to incorporate integrative therapies into their conventional cancer care.
Social, mind-spirit and physical aspects of health will be explored during your visit at the Integrative Medicine Center.
