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.

Cervical cancer is a very rare but serious disease. I was happy to contribute to this comprehensive article by @bustle on pap smears, HPV, and cervical cancer.

"Cervical cancer is a deadly cancer and the overall U.S. survival rate is only 66%, but fortunately it is actually not a common cancer," Dr. Gersh says.

I'm honored to announce that my letter to the editor article, Benefits of Estrogen in Cardiovascular Diseases, was recently published in the Elsevier journal, Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases.

"Estradiol is the master hormone of metabolic homeostasis in the female body, with receptors located throughout the organ systems, regulating all aspects of energy production and distribution. The heart is a major utilizer of energy, requiring a substantial supply through mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation, along with a steady supply of oxygen and nutrients. E2 ensures that the critical needs of the heart are met, potentially reducing CVD, including heart failure..."

Tune in today at 11:00AM for my Women and Fasting IG Live Series to talk about fasting and estrogen. This is one of the major reasons that women need their own guide for fasting. Estrogen is the master hormone in the female body and it is affected by fasting. This is must-have info if you are a woman interested in fasting.
