The Integrative Health and Wellbeing program at NewYork-Presbyterian, in collaboration with Weill Cornell Medicine, is an individualized, holistic, and evidence-based approach to healthcare.

We partner with you to help you improve your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Our approach to your care includes:

  • A 45-60 minute evaluation by our dual-certified integrative medicine and internal medicine physicians
  • Comprehensive physical exam
  • Review of your medical records and laboratory testing
  • If needed, recommendation of additional testing
  • Thorough discussion and education about lifestyle management, behavioral modification, and if needed, recommendations for adjunctive therapies
  • If needed, referrals to recommended services: acupuncture, massage therapy, nutrition counseling, yoga instruction, mindfulness coaching, and meditation instruction.

  • Cardiology (prevention of cardiac disease, slowing of progression, stress relief, diet optimization)

What Our Patients Are Saying

Jane Cross
Talking about Chiti Parikh, M.D.

"Always a good experience with Dr. Parikh...she listens, she's smart, and I leave her office (or virtual office these days!) with a plan and feeling better every time. I have a lot of diverse issues, and she addresses all of them, spending as much time as it takes. She runs on time too, which is a rare thing, and much appreciated."

Talking about Irina Rimel, L.Ac

"Irina was attentive and thorough! She took the time to really listen to why I wanted to do acupuncture and her demeanor was very calming. Can’t recommend her enough! I will be going back to see her more frequently. Staff was amazing too!"

"I will recommend this doctor and practice without hesitation. It's like going to a Spa but better. My shoulder and hip were in terrible pain. One visit, one visit I couldn't believe it. I still no believe it. No drugs or pain medicine just a quick acupuncture session then I feel like brand new. I can run faster, work out better. Thank you very much L.Ac. Oleg Fabrikant."
