We truly believe we are unique in our approach to health and well-being, and can provide you with a level of care rarely seen. Our goals are clear – to help you to be happy, strong, vibrant, and energetic. We want you to love life and look forward to each new day.
Knowing that the human body is amazingly complex and challenged by toxic chemicals and environmental pollution, aging, nutritional deficiencies, pharmaceuticals, chronic stress, electromagnetic energy, hormonal deficiencies, and more, we work endlessly to not only increase, but to constantly update, our already extensive knowledge base. In the past two years alone, we have attended meetings of the Androgen Excess and PCOS Society in Italy and Australia, as well as the annual meetings of the American College of Sports Medicine in Boston and Denver. Among many others, we have also attended and made presentations at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine meetings in Las Vegas and Hollywood, Florida, and the Institute of Functional Medicine conference in San Diego.
In addition, both Dr. Gersh and Dr. Kowata took the environmental medicine course given by the renowned naturopathic doctor, Walter Crinnion. Dr. Kowata is also undertaking a rigorous, nearly two year program in advanced homeopathy from the most respected doctors in the field. We read endlessly and attend innumerable conferences.
As well, we have a unique approach to medical problems, providing the most expansive view of the complexity of the human body. Understanding that there simply is no way to “dummy-down” the most beautiful and intricate systems of our bodies, we look at all facets of health and develop treatment plans which allows us to tackle problems from the simplest to the most complex. We also work with those who are healthy and wish to remain so for a very long time.
Our entire team believes in sharing their knowledge with our patients to enrich the treatment possibilities. This provides a powerful force aimed at a single target – bringing you back to optimal health!
Dr. Gersh is a rare gem among the local medical community. She truly cares on a personal level for the well-being and health of her patients and takes the time to get to know them, understand their needs and create the most thoughtful and responsive treatment plan for each individual patient. Every office visit lasts at least thirty minutes, or more, and Dr. Gersh answers all of my questions and asks probing follow-up questions, always with her pleasant and calming bedside manner and never making me feel rushed. Dr. Gersh is careful to select appropriate, but not excessive, lab tests and her treatment approach is measured and research-based and premised upon managing the intersection of physical and mental health, nutrition, lifestyle and the individual needs of her patients. Dr. Gersh is a true pioneer in the developing field of integrative medicine and her patients are exceedingly grateful to be in her care.
Dr. Gersh is really amazing at what she does. She has a thorough understanding of PCOS and thyroid issues, and goes a long way to educate and support patients. She also utilizes various healing modalities, which I really appreciate, given my non-Western view of medicine and health.
The clinic has very up to date doctors and I am treated as a partner in my treatment plan.
Dr. Gersh and the entire staff was wonderful and extremely caring. This was the best Dr. experience I have ever had…by far. Thank you All!
Thank you Dr. Gersh for being so caring and knowledgeable.
I feel like a whole new person since discovering Integrative Medical Group of Irvine. I have been a patient of Dr. Gersh for many years and have experienced many aspects of the practice from gynecology to internal medicine as well as acupuncture, aesthetics, and nutrition. Dr. Gersh is brilliant, innovative, warm and caring, and truly inspirational, taking her time personally to make me feel special, encouraged, and always with my best interests at heart.
Dr. Gersh has been my doctor for 25 plus years. She is brilliant and constantly up to date on new studies, re-educating herself and her team to give the most integrative and thorough medical service. She is a caring and inspiring doctor.
