Integrative Family Medicine

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.

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.

“Dr. Etges offers the best of Integrative Medicine on many levels. Having a doctor I trust to oversee my autoimmune condition is in itself, ‘good medicine’. Qualities I admire: compassion, competence, enthusiasm for cutting-edge knowledge, honesty and humility.”

After years of lower back pain, varies back pain issues, and heel bruises, Dr. Etges’s Accupunture has finally helped me feel hopeful that I can resume exercise and fitness at the level I want. He shares his knowledge and insights as we go so I am well informed while getting relief. I believe he is the ONLY doctor who ever addressed all of the comments I wrote on my (very extensive) intake exam. That alone was extraordianary. He has a professional demeanor and at the same time he’s quirky and relaxed, making me feel confident in his skills which is important since I’d never had someone insert needles in me before!
I cannot say enough good things about his attention to detail and ongoing professionalism in his practice. I’m glad I found him and look forward to many years of medical excellence in his practice.

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.

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.
