Dr. Swerdloff's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Swerdloff "Dr. Swerdloff is a Board Certified Family Physician who has been in practice since 1990. She is a Diplomat both in Anti-aging and in Nutritional Medicine by WOSAAM. She is Eligible for Anti-Aging Medicine Specialization Diplomacy by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). She has completed her Fellowship in Hormonal Therapy with the International Hormone Society. Dr. Swerdloff is known for her integrative approach combining principles of conventional medicine with nutrition, herbs, homeopathy, and other alternative approaches to problems. Dr. Swerdloff is interested in improving the quality and the longevity of her patient's lives. Her focus is primarily on wellness rather than dis-ease. She approaches dis-ease as a state of being to be prevented, or if it has occurred a problem to be investigated and solved. Dr Swerdloff has an unusual gift, her experience, open mind, and insight allow her to address health problems that are usually difficult to resolve and enable her to help her patients heal. She accomplishes this by approaching each patient as an individual with a unique set of circumstances creating the current situation and as she listens to the patient she begins to unravel and uncover the variables to help the patient solve the equation equaling better health through nutrition, a full complement of bio-identical/natural hormones, detoxification, Homeopathy, and exercise. Integrating and blending conventional and alternative techniques she pays attention to the mind, body, and the spirit in her approach and solutions. What patients really like best about Dr. Swerdloff is that she listens to them, she hears what they are saying and asking. If you ask her she will say she learned it from her mother who was a phenomenal listener. That upbringing combined with her extensive training in conventional medicine, hormones, prevention, alternative therapies, nutrition, and Anti-Aging medicine and an open mind allows her to draw upon a wide range of possibilities for optimizing health.
