Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dominguez "Simply stated listens to the patients voice! Integrates not only the biology of the disease state or of the conditions or of just well person check ups but incorporates the role of psychology and sociology into each treatment and management plan. Dr. Dominguez enjoys the marriage of eastern and western philosophy and the pursuit of well being. She try's to look into the future and evaluates a given patients present circumstances to look for weak links and how they can be modified to prevent future complications.

Through so many challenging life experiences her self,  she has learned that humbleness and respect of all, along with equality of care are the cornerstone to being trusted by the patients.

Dr. Dominguez is a pioneer in integrative medicine recognizing that the parts are so much more than the parts and that although as western physicians we have becoming increasingly subspecialized the answer to most questions lie within the whole."
