Coronavirus Update

Our office is open and ready to help you stay healthy! To protect you and our staff, we have some new policies.
  • If you are feeling well, you are welcome to come in for all of your medical needs.
  • All patients will be screened for fever upon entering the office.
  • All exam rooms will be thoroughly cleaned after each patient visit (we’ve always done this!)
  • If you feel ill or don’t want to come in, we can do a telemedicine appointment.
  • If you are concerned that you might have coronavirus, we can support you remotely, helping you get tested, answering questions, giving advice on supplements and home therapies, and helping you get admitted to a hospital should you need additional medical care.

Who We Are

The Integrative Medical Group of Irvine blends the best of conventional, naturopathic, and holistic medicine, providing comprehensive, integrative healthcare for women of all ages.

Integrative Medical Group of Irvine provide a wide range of services, including physical exams and annual women’s visits, acute and chronic care, and a full spectrum of preventive and wellness care.

Because coordinated care at one site provides the best opportunity for achieving optimal health, IMGI provides:

  • Comprehensive healthcare
  • Integrative gynecology
  • Complex disease diagnosis and management
  • Advanced testing
  • Anti-aging medicine
  • Aesthetics and skincare
  • Nutrition and fitness

Additional services include naturopathy, acupuncture, massage, and IV therapy.

We believe that…

A doctor and her patient are equal partners in health. As our patient, you should fully understand and consent to all recommended treatments.
The best treatment is the most natural, least toxic treatment. Many pharmaceuticals have terrible side effects. These powerful drugs should be last resorts, not first-line treatments.
Illnesses are usually interconnected. We want you to tell us about all of your symptoms so we can treat them together.
In many cases, the body can heal itself. Your body is designed to be healthy. If you give your body what it needs, it can usually heal all on its own.
The goal of medicine is optimal health, not tolerable illness. We want you to feel amazing.
Health is an ongoing journey. As you travel through life, we will be here for you.

Dr. Felice Gersh Interview

Dr. Gersh is the medical director of IMGI and is board-certified in Integrative Medicine and OB-GYN. She is a globally-renowned expert in women’s health and complex disease management.

Why do women live longer than men? Does the ability to bear children play a role and to what extent do evolutionary forces discriminate between men and women?

In this in-depth interview Dr. Gersh explains why she “had to unlearn” about half of everything she learned at medical school calls for a fundamental “shake-up” in the delivery of health care.

SET A REMINDER: IG Live tonight! As abortion bans spread across the country, contraception can get pulled into the conflict. Emergency contraception, aka the "morning after pill" and often known by the brand name, Plan B, is sometimes mistakenly considered to be a form of abortion. Tonight, I'll discuss the difference between contraception and abortion and explain why emergency contraception is just that, contraception.

Tuesday, 7/5 at 8PM Pacific

Women with PCOS are not adept at converting testosterone into estradiol. Estradiol comes from testosterone and it’s converted in the ovaries using an enzyme called aromatase, so essentially you end up with a surplus of testosterone and a deficiency of estradiol.⁣

This causes the brain to put out a signal through the pituitary gland to make more luteinizing hormone (LH), which is the hormone from the pituitary gland that tells the ovary to make more testosterone.⁣

As I shared on Monday, you can reverse PCOS, which is why I’m excited to share my in-depth conversation with @Dr.FeliceGersh about the different types of PCOS and how we tackle it in our respective clinics.
