Why choose Integrative Urgent Care?
My name is Eric Brown, MD and I am the Medical Director of Integrative Urgent Care in Glendora, CA. I was raised in the San Gabriel Valley area (Altadena) and graduated from the UCLA Medical School. I received my training in Emergency Medicine at Martin Luther King Hospital (level 1 trauma center).
I have practiced Emergency Medicine in various hospital settings for the past 15 years.
In 2007 I wanted to explore options outside of traditional western medicine that I could offer patients and began a fellowship in Integrative Medicine with Dr. Andrew Weil at the University of Arizona. After completing this fellowship in 2009 I felt was able to offer patients more valuable information and it that made me a better clinician.
What I learned is each of these areas contribute to ones overall health:
the importance of diet,
the importance of exercise,
the importance of mental, and spiritual health.
In 2014 I began to explore how I could combine my passion for Emergency medicine training with my interest in Integrative Medicine. I soon realized that the Urgent Care setting was a natural fit that could combine these 2 areas of interest.
We pride ourselves in providing excellent and efficient service. We will also discuss when appropriate other options outside of traditional western medicine to help with your medical needs.
Whether it is discussing benefit of good nutrition, meditation, or starting a yoga practice. our staff will consider you as an entire person and not the just the specific complaint that has you seeking treatment. Our staff wants to make your experience at IUC unlike any other you have received in an acute medical setting like the Emergency Department or other Urgent Care facilities.
Integrative Urgent Care Values
Integrative Urgent care and Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine attempts to approach the health of an individual taking into account all areas of their life that could be contributing to their health. When you choose our facility for your Urgent Care Health needs, you choose the best of western traditional medicine with an integrative approach that focuses on the entire scope of health; diet, exercise, mental and spiritual health.
What's the difference between Integrative and Traditional Medicine?
Traditional western medicine focuses more attention on whatever disease process (hypertension, diabetes, Cancer) an individual may have and attempt to cure the disease with medication or intervention (like surgery). There are definite advantages to this form of medicine and Integrative Medicine does not attempt to supplant or replace the great advances made it traditional medicine.
What's the goal in Integrative Medicine?
The goal in Integrative Medicine is to continue to use proven medical treatments and combine them with other modalities that can also improve health. The most
obvious examples are the importance of diet and exercise and the benefit lifestyle changes can have on overall health.
