A Different Kind of Practice

Bio

“I have always wanted to provide a different type of healthcare. I want people to look forward to going to the doctor, knowing it will be an avenue to help them. Knowing, it will improve the way they feel on a day to day basis. Doctor visits today are often rushed. Patients often leave with questions there wasn’t time to answer. In my practice I have time to sit and really talk to my patients.”

  • The focus in medicine today is on treatment, not prevention or etiology of illness. We need to step back and see where problems start in order to solve them.
  • While I firmly believe in, and use, traditional medicine, I also know there are other avenues that can aid in achieving optimal health. These include areas such as nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, mind-body medicine and acupuncture. I try to use as natural of an approach as is possible.
  • I know sometimes traditional medicine falls short in treating certain health issues. I will work with you from an integrative medicine perspective to treat issues such as these.
  • I have the unique perspective of an integrative medicine physician and dietitian and truly believe in using all aspects of my knowledge to treat you. I do work as a consultant and ask that you continue routine care with your primary care physician.

Testimonials

“I have been a patient of Dr. Amy Burkhart for several years. I suffer from Crohn’s disease and was having difficultly in my daily life. After visiting many doctors, all of whom were unable to help me, Dr. Burkhart took the time and patience to create a plan which brought me back to health. I still follow her plan to this day and have been living a normal healthy life. Dr. Burkhart listened to my symptoms along with listening to me, she took her time in preparing a plan which led me to  non-invasive testing, which led me to the road for recovery. I cannot thank Dr. Burkhart enough, and I would recommend her to anyone.”

The Microbiome and Celiac Disease: A Vital Connection
December 2014

The gluten-free diet may not be all that is needed to treat celiac disease.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease twelve years ago. It was quite a journey to arrive at the diagnosis, as it is for so many. When I finally found the answer, the sense of relief was overwhelming. I was additionally comforted by the fact that my treatment was a diet and not medication. Read more…
