"Dr. Lakes and Dr. Ingraham practice evidence based medicine with a more holistic approach as they have found this to be the most beneficial. They take their time getting to know you as this provides them with the best opportunity towards improving your health. While they manage disease with all necessary and appropriate treatments, they will strive to keep your medication list as short as possible. They also strongly encourage you to take responsibility for your own health.
We strive to treat every patient as an individual. While there are many important ‘standard of care’ treatments that we follow, we work hard to treat the patient and not the disease. We recognize that no two individuals are alike and that different patients respond well to different therapies. We feel it is vitally important to keep the whole patient in mind while putting together a treatment strategy. We also expect the patient to take ownership of their health, and with our guidance make good health choices."
