General practice & family medicine
“The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.”
—Sir William Osler (Canadian physician)
At IMI, whilst our core focus is on natural medicine and restoring the natural healing powers of the body, we recognise that conventional (Western) medicine does have its place, particularly in diagnosis and testing as well as treating some bacterial infections and more serious illness. Our General Practitioners (GPs) are well-rounded to treat a range of acute and chronic illnesses. They also screen for early signs of health illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes.
Our General Practitioners are passionate about holistic primary care for the whole family and work alongside our naturopathic physicians and other registered integrative healthcare practitioners to address your health concerns. We want every patient who walks through our doors to know their health and wellbeing is paramount to us.
Our GPs have access to specialist advice, therapies, and treatments - to deliver a fully integrated approach to your healthcare. Referrals to a naturopathic physicians is particularly advantageous in more complex health conditions (e.g. thyroid disorders, liver, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes) in identifying and addressing the underlying causes of your illness. They can also refer you to our psychotherapists to work through any mental health conditions or if you are experiencing a particular distressing or difficult life event. Our GPs recognise that a whole system approach to your health not only has a better outcome but increases long term health and wellbeing.
