Team Approach To Integrative Care
Dr. Mary Infantino and the Integrative Medicine team of Heart and Health Medical take a whole-body approach to health and wellness. The team creates unique treatment plans that integrate the behavioral, cognitive, and physiological systems of the patient for a combined approach to medical practice. The team at Heart and Health Medical is comprised of board-certified physicians, board-certified nurse practitioners, and integrative primary care specialists equipped with the most advanced equipment and facilities in Long Island, New York. Most large medical organizations or hospital-owned practices have one solution that fits all when treating disease. At Heart and Health Medical, each patient receives a customized care plan designed for the best possible outcome.
Integrative primary care represents a holistic approach to healthcare that combines traditional Western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies. At the heart of integrative primary care is the belief that treating the whole person, rather than just addressing isolated symptoms or conditions, leads to better health outcomes and a higher quality of life.
In integrative primary care, patients benefit from a team of healthcare providers, including primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and specialists, who work collaboratively to develop personalized treatment plans. These plans often incorporate a wide range of therapeutic modalities, such as nutrition counseling, acupuncture, chiropractic care, mindfulness-based stress reduction, herbal medicine, and more.
The focus of integrative primary care extends beyond the treatment of illnesses and injuries. It places a strong emphasis on preventive medicine, helping patients make lifestyle choices that promote long-term health and well-being. This approach includes optimizing nutrition, managing stress, encouraging physical activity, and addressing the emotional and mental aspects of health.
Integrative primary care recognizes that each patient is unique, and their healthcare journey should be tailored to their specific needs and preferences. By integrating the best of both conventional and complementary medicine, this approach empowers patients to take an active role in their healthcare, fostering a sense of partnership between providers and patients on the path to optimal health.
