The Integrative approach means willingness to integrate non-drug, alternative and self-care techniques and
programs into the conventional and traditional approaches of diagnosis, medicine and even surgery when
necessary…. then come up with numerous options that may be helpful for your conditions. To Dr. Marshall,
this is a “best of both worlds” approach and one that stands to promote a deeper form of healing and growth
rather than simply an alleviation of symptoms.
Dr. Marshall’s special programs and “whole person” type of practice generally require longer physician visits.
While Dr. Marshall does still provide a traditional short (10 to 12 minute) medicine check/refill type of visit when
appropriate, most of his visits are from 25 minutes to 50 minutes, depending on your specific need or type of
Dr. Marshall takes an educational approach with self-care techniques. He covers as much as possible in the
longer visits that are structured for this purpose.
This approach is not for everyone and it is not covered by insurance plans. You may wish to schedule a
free introductory session with Dr. Marshall to determine if this approach is right for you.
About Dr. Marshall’s Mind-Body-Spirit and
Integrative Medicine Services
While maintaining an open mind about alternative forms of
medicine, Dr. Marshall also stays current on the use
of medicine to regulate or balance the mood or state of mind.
He does not support the use of alternative medicine to the
exclusion of necessary traditional medicines. His main goal
is to effectively blend traditional and non-traditional
medicines to not only heal a symptom but to help people
make changes that enhance overall well-being.
Dr. Marshall had a life-changing event when, at age 14, he
was struck by a car. He was severely injured and spent
much of the following year in the hospital, in danger of losing
his right leg. This experience taught him the importance of
state of mind and attitude in healing and solidified his
respect for traditional medicine and surgery.
In recent years, Dr. Marshall has found that he prefers to
spend more time with fewer patients and address
needs in the areas of health education, well-being, and
prevention of illness. Please explore the web site and
