Welcome to Integrative Medical Group of Irvine

May 15, 2014 Comments Off by

The Integrative Medical Group of Irvine blends the best of conventional, naturopathic, and holistic medicine, and provides comprehensive, integrative health care for men and women of all ages. We provide a wide range of care-including physical exams and annual women’s visits, acute and chronic care, and a full spectrum of preventive and wellness services.

The practice was established in 1981 by Felice Gersh, M.D., a gynecologist and fellowship trained physician in Integrative Medicine. Because coordinated care at one site provides the best opportunity for achieving optimal health, the practice includes the specialties of integrative gynecology, endocrinology, internal medicine, weight management, including the HCG Diet, wellness and anti-aging medicine, aesthetics and skin care, and nutrition and fitness. Additional services include psychology and hypnosis, naturopathy and homeopathy, acupuncture, massage, Reiki, aromatherapy and reflexology.

Our philosophy is that wellness is best maintained through a healthy lifestyle and early detection of illness, and that medical treatment should begin with the safest options, proceeding to the most sophisticated therapies when necessary.

We welcome you to our unique practice and invite you to explore our website.
