A WORD TO OUR PROSPECTIVE PATIENTS
We know that selecting a new doctor is a big decision, and we thank you for inquiring about The Preventive Medicine Center of Gainesville, Inc. The Center was established in March 2000 by Dr. Robert A. Erickson in response to more and more Americans seeking complementary and alternative therapies to traditional drug therapy alone, while at the same time wanting a trained medical doctor participating in their health care needs.
At the Center we take a nutritional approach to health and healing, rather than prescribing drugs whenever possible. This approach is integrated with the medications a patient is currently taking from other physicians. It has been our experience in some cases medications can eventually be reduced or even eliminated entirely if a patient so desires. The intent of this approach is to elevate one’s health through nutrition and life-style changes, rather than just treatment of symptoms with a drug.
We realize this type of approach is not for everyone and does not apply to every health condition. We encourage you to explore this website to get a better idea of our approach to health and wellness.
