Our Approach

You Talk, We Listen

We practice a team consulting approach to your care with the best of all therapies available, an integrated approach to healthcare not found at any other medical facility. Our practitioners spend time getting to know you so we can provide the best possible care. During your first integrative medicine consultation, we’ll talk with you at length, as much as two hours,  about your health history and concerns, and the health goals you hope to achieve. You will benefit from the skill and knowledge of our entire team. Dr. Stram, with over 30 years experience as a medical doctor,  will always be available to assess your history, diagnoses and testing and be part of the treatment plans developed for you, even if you are not meeting with him personally. No matter who you see, Dr. Stram will have oversight in your care. 

Our aim is to investigate the root cause of your symptoms and the road blocks you have experienced to reaching your optimal wellness.

Together, we’ll create a custom plan to address your specific current and future health needs and goals. Your treatment plan might include nutritional supplement therapies, diagnostic testing, recommendations for lifestyle changes, and/or referrals for complementary therapies such as acupuncture, massage, Chinese herbal medicine, energy healing or nutritional counseling.

You may also choose to see one of our complementary therapists for your first visit to the Center. For example, some patients know they want to start out with acupuncture for knee pain, because of its well know effectiveness.

Our team of practitioners consult with each other so that you benefit from the skill and knowledge of our entire staff. This is integrative Medicine at its best. If you’re ready to take charge of your health, please call the Center at 518-689-2244, option  2 for the new patient line; or email us.
