Care Philosophy

Dr. Carolyn George focuses on a thorough, individualized assessment of underlying causes of health issues and biochemical and/or nutritional imbalances that may be making you feel ill. Additionally, she looks for triggers of dysfunction. She utilizes this information to understand how to begin the process of disease reversal. This patient-centered approach better addresses your personal health care needs rather than traditional medical practices.

Dr. Carolyn George spends time with her patients, listening to their histories, reviewing interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and chronic disease. A comprehensive, customized health plan is developed as opposed to prescribing medication only for your symptoms. This may include therapeutic diets, medical nutrition therapy, individualized physical activity and behavior modification techniques in order to restore optimal function.

Biography

Carolyn S. George, MD, the founder and owner of VIDA Integrative Medicine, is dedicated to providing personalized healthcare by identifying and addressing the root causes of illness through an approach called Functional and Integrative Medicine. Her functional medical approach helps her find answers so she can treat the root cause of disease instead of just treating the symptoms. She works closely with her patients to explore their health and identify areas of improvement with both traditional medicine as well as nutritional support to maximize their health and well being. Dr. George is board certified in Urgent Care Medicine (ABUCM) receiving her undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Manitoba. She received her post-graduate training in Toronto at St. Mary's Hospital and has practiced in both the United States and Canada. Dr. George has spent over 25 years working in the area of Emergency and Urgent care medicine where she observed the long-term consequences of poor lifestyle choices, oversight in management, inadequate patient education and difficult to treat conditions. She realized that her expertise and passion could make a real impact on her patient's health before irreversible damage has occurred. Since then she has focused exclusively on applying a whole system approach of functional and integrative medicine to her practice. Dr. George believes strongly that patients make better choices about their health when they understand all the relevant factors that lead to their disease.
