Surf City Holistic Medicine offers the "best of both worlds," we are traditionally trained family medicine doctors in addition to being well versed in holistic care.
We are deeply rooted in the foundation of Western Medicine, caring for the medical needs of the entire family.

We heal the whole body: mental, emotional, and physical, for sustained optimal wellness.
The practice actively listens to all our patients to collaborate and create a completely individualized health plan. Our patients have remarkably benefited from this approach. Treatment plans include: prescription medication as appropriate, dietary and exercise recommendations, meditation, Qigong (a Chinese system of physical exercises and breathing control related to tai chi), over-the-counter homeopathic remedies, or referral to a specialist - Western or Eastern.
We have collaborated extensively with specialists such as Nephrology, Hematology, Rheumatology, Ayurvedic Doctors, Functional Medicine Doctors, Chiropractors, Naturopathic Doctors, and Acupuncturists.
