Traditional primary care medicine typically aims to cure or mitigate disease or injury in order to promote and maintain optimal health. Traditional primary care providers may recommend medications or other treatments to address acute and chronic conditions. Integrative medicine practitioners, on the other hand, may also utilize a variety of treatment tools, including lifestyle modification, dietary changes, therapeutic nutrition, nutrient supplementation, botanical medicine, homeopathy, bodywork, and meditation as a means to further enhance a patient’s health.
While all of our primary care providers at One Medical take a patient-centered approach to primary care, we have specific providers who specialize in integrative healthcare. Our integrative care team consists of primary care providers with additional training in integrative medicine, naturopathic doctors, nutritionists, acupuncturists, psychotherapists and health coaches.
Whether you want to stay healthy or manage a chronic health condition, nutrition is a fundamental component of your care plan. With the help of our integrative providers, health coaches, and nutritionists, you will be empowered and supported in making informed dietary choices that support your health goals. Your team will work with you to create a personalized plan tailored to your individual needs and preferences.
Once exclusively considered an Eastern practice, acupuncture is now commonly incorporated into integrative health care, and considered a valuable complementary and alternative modality in the West. More than one million people in the US use acupuncture to address a variety of health issues, including pain, fatigue, digestive complaints, anxiety, and stress. Acupuncture is guided by the philosophy that patterns of energy flow in the body result in varying states of health and illness. At One Medical, our acupuncturists employ a distinct approach to diagnosis, and treatments are designed to optimize the energetic flow and restore balance in the body. In some cases, our providers may also recommend Chinese herbal formulas to further support your treatment goals.
Membership to One Medical Group is $149 per year. This fee allows us to provide services above and beyond what insurance provides.

"At One Medical, we review your labs and monitor how much progress you’ve made, examining factors such as your blood sugar levels, cholesterol, and weight. I firmly believe that a healthy diet is vital to living and feeling your best for the long haul, but also moment-to-moment. Every time we consume anything, we’re essentially programing our bodies for how we’re going to feel in the future–not only in the years to come, but also hours and minutes after consumption."
