Growin’ like gangbusters, and need more docs!  We’re not only adding primary care (done differently!), but will be the hub for several fully integrated and integrative programs – such as Cancer Care (no, our docs don’t need to be oncologists, we’ll be working closely with them), Weight Management (working closely with the Bariatric program which, prior to our deep involvement revolved primarily around surgery) and Integrated Chronic Disease Management. Lots going on.  And – we really need more docs!” Wallace also has a new book on the Heart of Healing, on her web page.
