What is Tailor Medical?
Tailor Medical is a collaborative clinic that gives busy individuals a personalized, measurable healthcare strategy to enhance their physical and mental performance.
Tailor Medical is a new progressive clinic dedicated to an integrative medicine platform. We provide patients with a comprehensive Tailor Annual Medical Examination and Lifestyle Medicine programs so they can proactively manage the increasing demands on their time, body and mind.
What is 'Integrative Medicine'?
Integrative Medicine combines evidence-based biomedicine with complimentary alternative medicine practices in order to give you a more complete picture of your overall health. Studies show that mind and body health are interconnected, so we believe an integrative approach to medicine is critical in order to maximize your health performance today – and to prevent issues from arising tomorrow.
