Conventional Medicine

There is no question that medicine has advanced from its origins until the present through creativity and innovation, coupled with modern technology research to provide humanity with many life-saving tools that have prevented early mortality and extended life spans. Unfortunately, as most people know, conventional medicine is not perfect and, though miraculous in emergencies, it falls short in the treatment of chronic conditions, often adding intolerable side effects from the medications to the already significant suffering.

An important part of the treatment is to review the prior medical conditions, diagnostic studies and treatments, as well as the current medications. Usually, these treatments will be maintained, at least for a period of time, while determining their need and usefulness.

Dr. Merizalde believes in combining the best conventional medicine has to offer, either personally or through esteemed specialist colleagues, as well as what traditional and holistic approaches have to offer to the treatment of his patients.
