We offer holistic medicine, a unique and innovative approach to health at Hathaway Recovery. We don’t treat symptoms or diseases, but the whole person. Patients’ symptoms are considered to be the result of underlying dysfunction, which can be corrected by stimulating the body’s regulatory forces.
Holistic medicine refers to the science and art of holistic healing. It addresses the whole person, including the mind, body, and spirit. Hathway Recovery combines traditional and alternative therapies to treat and prevent disease and, most importantly, promote optimal health. The definition of health is the unchecked and unlimited flow of energy throughout the body. Holistic medicine involves the analysis of lifestyle, nutrition, emotional, spiritual, and environmental factors.
We also focus on patient education, participation, and support in the healing process. To achieve optimal health and well-being, this type of healing considers the whole person, including the mind, body, spirit, and emotions. Our philosophy is that optimal health can be achieved by maintaining balance in one’s life.
Each part of a person is interdependent and affected if it isn’t working well. People can also suffer from physical, emotional, and spiritual health imbalances. So we look for the root cause of the disease to help the body heal.
We place a high priority on improving the general metabolism of our patients. This includes detoxification, purification, immune stimulation, and other stimulating therapies. Our doctors and therapists only use suppressive medicine’ in times of crisis, not for long-term care management. This is because this type of medicine works best in acute situations.
You are making a commitment to your health as our client. All of our doctors hold conventional medical degrees and specialized training in Biological Medicine. In some instances, holistic and traditional treatments may be combined.
Our therapists have extensive training and are highly qualified in their treatment skills. The following are the components of our treatment program:
> Education for patients on making lifestyle changes and taking care of themselves to improve their health. This could include diet, exercise, and psychotherapy. It may also have a relationship and spiritual counseling.
> Alternative and complementary therapies like acupuncture, osteopathic medicine, and phytotherapy.
> Individualized nutritional support
> Individualized orthomolecular medicine
> Western medications are available if necessary
The absence of illness is not enough to be in optimal health. It’s the conscious pursuit and attainment of the highest quality of the human experience in all aspects, including the mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and spiritual.

I have had extensive experience in Clinical and Administrative Emergency Medicine, Leadership (over 25 years of Medical Directorship and 15 years as a Regional Director for over 16 Emergency Departments) with a special emphasis on Quality Improvement, Operations, and Advocacy. I have done residencies in both Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine and am Board Certified in both. My leadership positions have included President of the Oregon Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians, Emergency Medicine Director for the state of Oregon, member of the Board of Trustees of the California Medical Association, and San Bernardino County Medical Society. I’m currently President-elect of the San Bernardino County Medical Society and was elected to the Board of Directors of CEP-America in 2014.
I have led region-wide improvements in Emergency Department Operations using the process of Rapid Medical Evaluation to where my Emergency Departments average 22 minutes wait time to see a provider. Also, I pioneered special operational improvements in large site Emergency Departments (yearly patient volumes over 80,000). My recent efforts have focused on the application of LEAN technology to Emergency Department Operations and the study of patterns of Risk in Emergency Medicine practice in conjunction with our medical malpractice company, MedAmerica Mutual. I have chaired the Risk Advisory Committee for the Partnership and was appointed Director of Risk for CEP America in 2015.
As Regional Director for CEP America, I have personally helped to start up 13 Emergency Departments, all of which are functioning very successfully, including 2 which have earned the distinction of “CEP-America ER of the Year” and 8 Distinctive Site awards.
I am proud to have been named “Master Clinician” by CEP America and have been honored with recognition for Distinctive service twice, as well as “Teacher of the Year” twice at Oregon Health Sciences University.
