About Dr. Tiffany
ABOUT Dr. Tiffany
When I was growing up I wanted to be the next Aaliyah. I would spend hours in my room with my Walkman (yes I'm that old) belting out the latest album. After apologizing to my parents' eardrums, I decided I wanted to become a doctor.
First, I thought I would be a psychiatrist. Then I switched to neurology, then oncology, then finally settled on primary care because I wanted to know everything about the body - not just one part.
During my internal medicine residency I still felt like I was missing a vital piece of the puzzle. Yes I learned about how to treat every possible disease with medication and/or surgery.
But then I started asking myself questions I couldn't find the answer to. What about the effects of a poor diet on disease? What about high stress levels? What happens when you exhaust all your conventional medicine resources and you're still sick?
When I began searching for answers I stumbled onto integrative medicine in 2008 and it felt like I had come home. Finally a way to help people heal from the inside out!
For the last 8 years I have immersed myself in learning medicine through an entirely different set of sunglasses and have helped hundreds of people heal. While it has been incredibly satisfying, I find other parts absolutely frustrating.
Our current medical system does not provide insurance coverage for an integrative medicine approach. This leaves a huge majority of the population who simply can't afford to get the treatment they need to heal.
That is why I created this site. I still enjoy working with patients one-on-one but there is a tremendous amount you can do without leaving your home. In the age of Dr. Google and everyone having access to the internet, it can be hard to sift through the clutter and know which direction to go.
This website is for you. You can browse around or START HERE for a more guided tour. Either way I hope you find at least one nugget of knowledge that will help you lead a healthier life.
Remember - Healthy never goes out of style.
