Dr. LaCava's bio
This content was provided by Dr. LaCava "Robert LaCava, M.D., has been a medical professional for over 40 years and has built up a wealth of experience since his completion of medical school at Northwestern University School of Medicine in 1974. He started his career practicing traditional medicine, but found that these approaches alone would repeatedly fall short in helping his patients achieve optimum health. Tired of managing chronic symptoms with therapies that barely addressed his patients' illnesses, Dr. LaCava began introducing alternative therapies, experiencing success where traditional medicine had failed. These successes encouraged Dr. LaCava to explore alternative treatments. Convinced of their value, he founded The LaCava Center for Integrative Medicine over 10 years ago. He now partners with patients to achieve their ideal health, through alternative and traditional treatments. Dr. LaCava has four children, three grandchildren and more sure to follow. During his spare time he enjoys grilling out and spending time with family. He also is passionate about helping others with limited resources, and recently experienced a life changing medical mission trip to Africa. His dream is to return and continue helping to heal those sick and in desperate need."
This content was provided by Dr. LaCava "If you've tried to find a doctor in the past, you know it can be hard to find one that listens — a physician who treats you like a person. Even if you find the right doctor, you may soon discover that they don't understand you and your illness. Without that understanding of the core problems causing it, they just treat your symptoms.
What if you had an experienced medical team who was not only trustworthy and reliable, but also knows that you want more than symptomatic treatment? A team who wants to help you feel healthier and happier than you are today? We want to help you!
The LaCava Center is an Integrative Medical center unlike any other. We provide innovative treatments which target the root causes of disease and sickness, instead of just treating the symptoms. Contact us today and find out how we can help you."

Dr. LaCava Says:
The LaCava Center for Integrative Medicine is not a typical healthcare facility that provides typical treatments. Often, we have to play detective and think outside of the box because our patients have already been treated by several other doctors unsuccessfully. Sometimes we experience great success. On more than one occasion we have literally saved lives, and we are extremely proud of this. Other times, we have not been successful.
