Integrative Medical Associates of Lubbock
“Where Traditional & Integrative Medicine Unite”
Welcome to our practice! Integrative Family Medicine of Lubbock is the solo practice of Dr. Stephen Dalton, DO. Our intention is to provide you and your family with comprehensive, alternative to traditional health care in a safe, relaxed and peaceful setting.
Integrative medicine is an approach to care that puts the patient at the center and addresses the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a person’s health. Employing a personalized strategy that considers the patient’s unique conditions, needs and circumstances, integrative medicine uses the most appropriate interventions from an array of scientific disciplines to heal illness and disease and help people regain and maintain optimal health.
We believe that healthcare can and should be done differently. As a Medical Doctor practicing in a traditional setting, I can see that the majority of illness in the United States are either preventable or treatable through more natural means. Knowing that such an approach would be both empowering and affordable for patients while also being more sustainable for our economy and natural health.
We also face a big question that frustrates many primary care doctors: How do we address the needs of the people and the community we serve when conventional office visits do not allow the time or resources to address the full scope of the problem? In facing this challenge, I asked, ‘How can this be done differently?’… I knew that we needed to address the whole person, family, community, and system by teaching the skills that they needed to take better care of themselves. Our practice provides a well-rounded approach where traditional and integrative medicine unite. Our clinic strives to provide overall health & wellness with an emphasis on anti-aging. We are a family practice clinic that provides complete Pediatric, Men’s & Women’s Integrative Health Care. We are passionate about understanding your current health status and designing a health plan that treats the WHOLE person and not just a symptom.
Treating the source not just the symptom is our solution. By applying the principles of simplicity, sustainability, quality, and collaboration, we are able to provide comprehensive services with an integrative approach for less than what most people are paying for traditional health care with better overall results.
Is it time for another Doctor?
Can you get into see your physician when you need him/her, or are they booked out for weeks or months in advanced?
Does your doctor spend adequate time when you see him/her, or are you rushed in and out?
Does your doctor throw another medication at your symptom?
Is your doctor giving you the individualized care you deserve or is your doctor following "cookie cutter" protocol?
Are you getting what you are paying for?
Are you paying to go to the doctor and ending up seeing a nurse practitioner or physician's assistant?
Is the care provided to you actually working and making you better or are you just being managed?
Is your doctor able to think outside the box?
Does your physician seem more interested in the quantity of patients seen rather than the quality of care?
Are you tired of hearing "it's just a viral illness"?
Are you tired of hearing if you get worse "go to the ER"?
Does your physician give you a physical examine?
Does your doctor listen to you?
Do you know more about your condition than your doctor?
