About Us


An Integrative Medicine Office For All Your Wellness Needs

Treating the Person not the Symptom

Our office utilizes mainstream medical diagnosis and treatment protocols combined with an integrative/holistic medical approach for the treatment of all disease processes including autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue, hormone imbalances, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, fibromyalgia pain,
orthopedic issues, etc. We utilize herbal and nutritional medicines as an adjunct treatment for a variety of illness to compliment our patients' care. We also utilize chiropractic manipulation, massage, and physical therapy to assist with all orthopedic complaints for the spine and extremities. We also work
intensively with sports injury rehabilitation. Dr. Cortesi incorporates a whole person approach to diagnosis instead of a symptom based treatment and always works with other providers of the healthcare team so as to utilize the best care for patients. We do not expect patients to engage in long term treatment plans. We provide honest and compassionate care as needed to maintain proper health and tailor treatment to each patient’s needs.
We treat our patients in the same manner that we expect to be treated period.
