[pullquote align=”left” cite=”- Cole Alexander”]I love helping people achieve their full potential. Whether it is in the classroom or in the treatment room, I never get tired of seeing someone reach a new level of ability or regain their health and well being.
Cole’s belief in providing individualized, integrative medicine to patients is one of his driving goals. Creating a space that is open to East Asian medicine – working with the Western model in the best interest of patients – is key to understanding his integrative approach to health care.
Cole has been inspired by many patients, some of whom came to him with little knowledge about Eastern medicine and have ultimately found it changed their lives! You can find him providing acupuncture at each of our weekly clinics, and he also provides Chinese herbal custom remedies through our teleHerb® service.
