PROGRESSIVE MEDICINE is the medicine of the future–available now. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.
Progressive medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of people in the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, progressive medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. As a progressive medicine practitioner, Dr.Anca spends time with her patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, progressive medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
