Personal Statement

Dr. Michelle Loy is passionate about listening to and partnering with her patients to better understand the specific physical, psychological, social, environmental, and spiritual influences on their health. She curates a personalized prevention or treatment plan tailored to each individual’s needs, circumstances, philosophy, and season of life. She utilizes evidence-based modalities of both innovative modern medicine and time-tested integrative and lifestyle modalities such as nutrition, acupuncture, botanical medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, yoga, mind-body practices, and cognitive-behavioral principles to attain optimal health and well-being. A strong proponent of family centered care, Dr. Loy treats patients of all ages from childhood, adolescence, to adulthood. She seeks for her patients to enjoy both years in life (longevity) and life in years (vitality). Through her approachable, compassionate, and mindful listening, she is committed to helpher patients and families find answers, foster a growth mindset, embrace their passions, and live a vibrant meaningful life. Areas of interest include optimizing cognitive brain health, gut health, emotional resilience, immune health (including cancer, autoimmune conditions, and chronic fatigue), metabolic health, preventative health, sports performance, and caregiver wellness. Dr. Loy is an integrative medicine physician and a consultation with her does not replace a primary care visit.
