Alternative Medicine

Dr. MacDonell recognizes that modern, westernized medicine, for all of its strengths, does not adequately address many aspects of health and illness. At its worst, modern medicine overlooks holistic health and treats the diseases or organ systems rather than the illnesses.

Dr. MacDonell brings the best of both modern medicine and alternative medicine to bear for you by working with colleagues who practice acupuncture, chiropractic therapy, massage, yoga, nutrition assessment, and physical therapy.  This approach may be particularly helpful when managing chronic painful conditions.
