Integrative Medicine and Primary Care

The Best of Both Worlds

There are so many benefits to choosing a Bend primary care physician who takes an integrative and holistic approach to medical care.  At our holistic medicine health center, we take your wellness goals seriously and work to help you achieve them. Our physicians go well beyond the typical medical practice of treating symptoms and use the most up-to-date information to diagnose and address the root causes of pain or disease, fixing the problem where it starts.

Our Bend primary care physicians–Dr. Jocelyn Cooper and Dr. Mary Ellen Coulter–develop a long-term relationship with each person in the family that includes a patient’s medical, family and social history.  Your doctor will conduct a thorough examination and may recommend traditional and/or functional laboratory testing in order to gather a comprehensive understanding of your unique healthcare picture.

We also perform preventative health services such as annual physicals and routine screening labs.  We offer well-woman exams including pap smears and breast cancer screening as well as well-child/well-baby exams and we administer both childhood and adult vaccines.

We treat patients of all ages and a range of health conditions at our holistic medicine health center. Whether you have an ongoing illness, a difficult-to-diagnose or painful condition, an acute injury or chronic pain, we can provide medical care and long term relief. We work with patients who have allergies, asthma, fibromyalgia, arthritis, ear infections, low immune systems with frequent illness, diabetes, heart disease, thyroid disorders, hormonal imbalances and so much more!

What’s the Difference?  

Our first approach is to help you heal using proven therapies without invasive intervention or high-force treatments.  We have a tool box that includes lower-force interventions such as herbal and nutrient medicine.  We focus on lifestyle choices including stress management, diet and hydration, adequate sleep and sense of community–all things that have a profound effect on your health.  However, sometimes an illness requires a more aggressive approach and this may include pharmaceuticals.  As experienced Bend primary care physicians, we are trained in conventional pharmaceuticals and will use them when appropriate.  We often refer to specialists for further evaluation when needed.  We work closely with our community colleagues to ensure you are getting the best care possible.
