Irina Borissova, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

We already have a shared vision…our personal patient-physician communication commences now! The very fact that you are reading this, shows your sincere interest in your health and wellness. We will work together toward taking this interest and weaving it into a proactive, preventive plan, for both the present and future. My health concept envisions an emphasis on “the whole person wellness” rather than treating individual parts of the body. I look forward to be able to take the time necessary to diagnose the root causes of your specific ailments. Being raised in the natural splendor of far-east Russia, I was exposed to many natural medicinal remedies handed down to us for generations. I feel fortunate to be able to combine this background with my more than 25 years of medical experience in allopathic, functional, and natural medicine to provide you with truly personalized integrative healthcare!
