Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Health Institute! Here, we offer a unique approach to our patients – a combination of Integrative and Conventional medicine. Our focus is on science, evidence-based medicine and research, but we use an approach that features an intensive focus on the individual patient and their unique health needs.
Our treatment modalities range from conventional medicine to integrative medicine, as well as specialized treatments and technologies – some that have been poorly studied in the conventional world of medicine, but are highly effective and proven safe by medical societies. In a world where conventional medicine has been unable to solve many of the chronic disease issues so many of our patients face, we use a unique approach to diagnosing and treating our patients, physically and emotionally. Chronic pain and the opioid epidemic may require acupuncture, PEMF therapy, Near Infrared Light, IV Ketamine, Neurobiofeedback, supplements, and emotional therapy to overcome.
For example, our average first patient visit is 60-120 minutes. Many other practitioners are limited by time and insurance regulations. We believe in spending time and energy to accurately diagnose and treat our patients, supporting them in every aspect of true health and wellness.
At this time, we do not accept third party insurance. You will be responsible for any fees at the time of your service. We accept check, cash, or credit card, and we can provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company. We also do not participate with medicaid/medicare. We apologize for this inconvenience.
