Integrative Health Care

Mainstream Medicine Meets Alternative/Complementary Healthcare


"At Lourdes, we know that health care is a science. However, we also believe that health care is a work of art. Every science is a compilation of information and every work of art is an integral whole, made up of many parts. Our approach to health care is three dimensional, taking into consideration the depth, length and breadth of the unique human experience. Our tradition challenges us to attend to the dimensions of our patients and clients in body, mind and spirit."

Mainstream Meets Alternative

Dr. Ciccone has a broad-based knowledge of Alternative/Complementary Health Care and is receptive to listening to your treatment and preventative care suggestions. He will do his best to integrate your suggestions where possible with mainstream allopathic medicine, and does not pretend to be an expert in any one field of alternative health care, however, he networks with Wholistic Practitioners and will provide referrals where and when they seem appropriate.

Health Focused Philosophy
Dr. Ciccone's philosophy is to blend alternative/complementary care with mainstream allopathic medicine only if he is convinced of the safety of the treatment/preventative option and ONLY if the plan does not deny mainstream care essential to the health of the individual.

Dr. Ciccone provides a wide variety of medical treatments that incorporate both mainstream and complementary modalities.
