Providers

An Integrated Medical Practice

Our Mission

Magnolia Medical Center strives to revolutionize the patient experience through a holistic and modern approach to healthcare.  We reject the “sick care” model of modern medicine.  Instead, we insist on exceptional patient care, cutting edge treatments and ample patient education to bring about optimal individual health and wellbeing.

Our goal is to help patients overcome pain and chronic illness without the use of addictive medication or surgery. We strive to provide the highest level of patient care, treating each patient as the individual they are. We work tirelessly to help patients achieve their health goals and regain their lives. We aim to set the example for how integrated, holistic medicine–where providers work in tandem toward the betterment of the patient–is the medicine of the future.
