Therapies and Services
The Institute for Progressive Medicine was founded by Allan Sosin, M.D., a board certified internist and nephrologist with over 35 years of experience. We treat people of all ages, with comprehensive, state of the art medicine. With access to both conventional and complementary therapies, we formulate programs for health that avoid the complications of drugs and surgery whenever possible. Here at the Institute for Progressive Medicine, our doctors work with you to arrive at the best possible treatment plan. We want you to have all treatment options available to you.
Our staff includes board-certified physicians and naturopaths with extensive training and experience in nutrition, vitamin and mineral supplementation, herbal therapies, prolotherapy, acupuncture, natural hormone replacement, chelation, intravenous nutrient therapies, and enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP).
Our purpose is to support health and manage illness with minimal use of drugs. Some alternative practitioners avoid drugs entirely. We believe it is important to have expertise in conventional therapies, in order to determine when drugs and surgery can be deferred, when and how drugs may be withdrawn, and when they should be employed.
It is a fallacy of current medical practice to label all problems as diseases and to intervene with chemical cures. At times the cure becomes worse than the disease. We often see people respond better to life-style changes and targeted nutritional supplements than to an array of drugs.
Older patients, particularly those taking 8, 9, or 10 prescriptions, frequently fare better when those drugs can be reduced. Diabetes, obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, osteoporosis, arthritis, fatigue, depression, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive disorders, can often be managed without drugs. Many patients with these problems have been able to reduce or discontinue drugs entirely.
