We know how important finding the right physician is to you and your family. With the complexity of managed health care programs today, finding a physician that matches your needs, and is available as a provider under your insurance plan, can be an overwhelming task. To help in your search we would like to invite you to meet with Dr. Kanelos (Founder) and his team of providers. We welcome you to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience.
MORE FACE TIME
Independent physicians do not have to meet daily patient quotas and can decide how much time to spend with a patient.
Patients can usually get same or next day appointments with an independent physician.
Independent physicians usually charge less to their patients than a network provider, which translates to less out of your pocket.
LOWER COST PROVIDER
Your insurance pays as much as 300% more to a network provider than to an independent physician, so you can help reduce your insurer’s costs.

Cardiac Risk Screening
Because research shows that traditional lipid testing often fails to detect cardiovascular disease in its early stages, we offer testing beyond the conventional lipid panel. These tests include non-traditional lipids, lipoproteins, inflammation, genetic variants, and more. These tests enable earlier disease detection and more targeted treatment to help prevent heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular events.
Integrative Medicine is a healing oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies. Integrative medicine gets to the root of the problem by treating the whole person rather than just treating the symptoms in traditional medicine.
