Integrative Medicine Consultations

Remy Coeytaux, MD, PhDREMY COEYTAUX, MD, PhD

Dr. Coeytaux offers integrative medicine consultations to people who would like to learn how they might incorporate complementary or alternative medicine (CAM) approaches into their healthcare plans. Dr. Coeytaux educates patients on the evidence that may support–or may not support–the safety or efficacy of various medical, surgical, nonpharmacological, traditional, holistic, or CAM treatment options for a wide variety of health conditions. Dr. Coeytaux does not serve as a patient’s primary care provider or family physician, but rather works with patients (and their primary care physicians or other healthcare providers) to develop a personalized integrative medicine health plan designed to best meet patients’ individual preferences, needs, and personal objectives.
