Dr. Etges is your partner in integrative medicine
Integrative family medicine combines conventional medicine with alternative and complementary therapies. Currently his practice is limited to adult medicine, though on a case-by-case basis he may also accept adolescents patients.
Dr. Etges provides traditional family medicine for adults, acupuncture, regenerative joint therapy (prolotherapy) and nutritional-based therapies. Integrative family medicine as practiced by Dr. Etges allows the patient to take a more active role in their treatment.
Dr. Etges is your health care partner. He is adept at coordinating his combined therapies with those offered by other local practitioners should specialty care be needed.
It is rare to find a doctor with the experience, compassion and wisdom that you will find in Dr. Tom Etges. I have used a number of acupuncturists for severe back pain and Dr. Etges is by far the best. His knowledge of medicine made it easy for him to understand the issues and support the work of my other medical providers.
I have known Tom for a few years, but first saw him after a car accident. Through acupuncture, Tom was able treat issues in my back that neither massage nor chiropractic treatments were able to. I highly recommend him.
What a joy to have someone that I could communicate with, who took the time with me to treat me as a whole person and not just a set of symptoms.
Dr. Etges is a gifted and compassionate doctor. I appreciate the way he listens to my needs and develops a unique approach to deal with whatever problem I am struggling with.
Dr. Etges is such a kind and caring soul. During my first appointment with him, he spoke with me for about an hour or hour and a half. When is the last time a doctor spent that much time with you? I also love that he can treat people using different modalities, for example, functional medicine, Chinese medicine, or traditional western medicine. His acupuncture is the best, and he will do everything he can to get you on the right path.
It is such a rare pleasure and gift to have such a well educated and balanced doctor and human being in our midst. The combination of skills with attention to my specific health issues is so appreciated, especially in these challenging times.
