May 28, 2014JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The Center for Advanced Medicine announced today that its integrative medicine practice is now accepting new patients.
Located in Johns Creek, the Center for Advanced Medicine offers state-of-the-art health care while focusing on natural therapies.
"Our practice is unlike any other practice you will find. We are truly patient-centered, and we get results," said Dr. Jonathan D. Stegall, the practice founder and lead physician.
"We spend the entire appointment discussing the issues that are important to the patient. Then I conduct a targeted physical exam and obtain pertinent lab testing. I carefully review all of this information, and develop a specific protocol for each patient."
Stegall, who is conventionally trained in internal medicine, grew frustrated with the cookie-cutter approach – and ineffective treatments – used in most medical practices and hospitals.
"Most doctors are accustomed to treating every patient the same way. They make patients wait, then rush through the visit, hurriedly prescribe some drugs and call it a day," he said, noting that this approach to chronic disease is failing patients.
"I spend a lot of time reviewing each patient's information and tailoring a protocol just for them. Treatment may include dietary supplements, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, intravenous nutrition, dietary changes, lifestyle modification and anti-aging treatments," he said.
"My approach, which emphasizes safe and effective natural therapies, is combined with a great relationship with each patient," he said. "That partnership, and the amazing results that it produces, is the main reason I went into medicine."
Stegall completed his residency in internal medicine through the Yale University School of Medicine after obtaining his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina.
He also has a master's degree in physiology from Georgetown University, and conducted research on the doctor-patient relationship at Harvard Medical School. In addition, Stegall completed a fellowship in integrative, anti-aging and functional medicine through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. He is board certified.
The Center for Advanced Medicine is a full-service integrative medicine practice. Through its patient-centered philosophy, the center's providers combine their extensive knowledge of the human body with safe and effective natural therapies to achieve amazing results.
