Reassured and Optimistic after IPT Visit*

IPT Health Questions

You know that feeling you get when you leave a doctor’s appointment and then immediately remember the question you wanted to ask?  One of the best things about IPT at LifeWorks is that you get about 2 hours of undivided attention from the Nurse Practitioner.  So all of the little (or big) things that we think of during the week, we get to talk about, and ask about, and Sue is never “in a hurry” because her sole focus the entire time is taking care of you.  She answers all of our questions and every week we leave the appointment feeling reassured and optimistic.  I know that the chemo is the reason for the appointment, but for my wife, the time we get to spend with Sue each week feels just as important as the treatment itself.

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
