UA Integrative Medicine Clinic Has Shorter Waiting List; Patient Appointments Available
Baseball great Yogi Berra once remarked, "Nobody goes to that restaurant anymore, it's too crowded."
That humorous quip may somewhat apply to the University of Arizona Integrative Medicine Clinic, which has had such an extensive waiting list since its founding that some prospective patients may have been discouraged from seeking clinic appointments.
That situation has improved, however. Although it continues to have a waiting list, the Integrative Medicine Clinic has additional capacity to see new patients, including a small number of children - thanks to the program's current enrollment of seven integrative medicine fellows and three pediatric integrative medicine fellows. The wait for new patient visits is much shorter, and the clinic is able to see a total of about 50 patients a week, reports Victoria Maizes, MD, executive director of the UA Program in Integrative Medicine.
Located on the sixth floor of University Medical Center, 1501 N. Campbell Ave., the Integrative Medicine Clinic is part of the UA Program in Integrative Medicine. Integrative medicine is healing-oriented, giving priority to the patient-physician relationship, and integrating the best of complementary and alternative medicine with the best of conventional medicine.
