Holtorf Medical Group Announces the Opening of the Garabedian Medical Clinic in King of Prussia, PA
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Holtorf Medical Group, California’s leading integrative, evidence-based medical facility, is pleased to announce the opening of its newest affiliate center, Garabedian Medical Clinic in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. This center, which is owned and operated by J. Andre Garabedian, M.D., has been designed to be a “Center of Excellence,” providing exceptional healthcare to complex and misunderstood conditions that are often poorly treated by the overwhelming majority of physicians and specialists. These conditions include chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, adrenal dysfunction, autoimmune disease and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as depression, hormone replacement therapy, obesity, metabolic dysfunction (low metabolism), insulin resistance and type II diabetes. Through a combination of cutting-edge diagnostic testing, that can uncover the underlying physiologic abnormalities that cause a wide range of symptoms, and targeted evidence-based therapies designed to treat the underlying causes rather than just masking the symptoms, the clinic brings new hope to patients that continue to suffer despite so-called adequate or standard care.
As an outspoken advocate for fibromyalgia and CFS, Dr. Garabedian has often been interviewed and quoted in the medical and mainstream media. “So many patients are told that their symptoms of fatigue, muscle pain and brain fog are just all in their head because the doctors only do basic tests that give little information, have little knowledge of these complex conditions and don’t have effective therapies available to them,” says Dr. Garabedian. “It is so rewarding to see dramatic improvements in patients that have seen five, ten, twenty or more doctors in the past without improvement.”
As the healthcare delivery model in the United States maintains a focus on “one size fits all”, population-based therapies that are typically designed to mask symptoms of illness rather than treating the underlying cause, the quality of care in this country continues to decline. Studies show that most doctors are practicing 10 to 20 years behind what is available in the medical literature and that it takes on average 17 years for a proven new therapy to get accepted into mainstream medicine (see Why Doesn’t my Doctor Know This?). The Holtorf Medical Group affiliate centers combine cutting-edge, evidence-based medicine with a focus on individualized care that gets results. In a peer-reviewed study of 500 consecutive patients treated at Holtorf Medical group, who were previously labeled as being treatment resistant and had seen on average 7.2 physicians without any improvement, seventy-five percent of patients had significant improvement by the fourth visit.
“I first saw Dr. Garabedian in June of 2008, and was really impressed with how quickly he picked up on what was causing all my problems. He ordered multiple tests, to confirm and refine exactly what was needed to treat the worst of my problems, which he treated with nutraceuticals, bio-identical hormones and weekly IVs that helped decrease my pain levels and increase my energy levels. As time has gone by, he has continued to retest, and as I improve, he continues to adjust my meds and work on my remaining problems. I must say, in the beginning, I didn’t see a lot of progress. However, Dr. G. assured me that it took me a long time to get that sick, and it would take a while to get well. I know that many people start to see results sooner than I did. But, after six months, I finally started seeing dramatic results, and continue to see improvement every week. I was really impressed with Dr. G’s ability to listen, diagnose and treat in such a compassionate manner. He truly understands the causes of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as the underlying conditions, leading us to be sick in the first place. Best of all . . . he didn’t think it was all in my head!
“As a nurse, I have worked with many doctors, and Dr. G. is by far, the best Diagnostician, and Medical doctor, that I have ever known. Add to that compassion and the ability to explain the way the body systems malfunction and what is needed to bring them back into alignment, it makes him the best, in my eyes.” -Claudia V., RN
