Dr. Stephen Smith
Northwest Healthcare and Wellness Center, PLLC is the practice of Dr. Stephen Smith specializing in allergy and environmental medicine. I started my journey into integrative medicine in 1985, when I developed fibromyalgia and realized I didn't have a clue about how to treat it and neither did most of my colleagues in traditional medicine. That is when I started my own quest into alternative and integrative medicine. I found many of the physicians at integrative medicine meetings and training sessions also had similar health conditions and many had restored their health using integrative medicine.
It has been my privilege to learn from some of the brightest physicians from around the world as they shared their knowledge with me. It is this knowledge that has helped restore my own health and that of others I have had the privilege to treat.
Many of the techniques of integrative medicine have been used in Europe for many years, but it is a relatively new concept in the US. Because of the benefits offered by both medical disciplines many integrative medicine clinics have now been established in the United States as well. I have been using integrative medicine techniques for many years and I have been pleased with results I have seen in myself and my patients.
- I would recommend this business
- Cost efficient. Uses modern therapy and stays up to date. Cares about the whole you. Has time.
- Has plenty of patients, doesn't work week ends.
Doc Smith is a fully engaged compassionate Dr who really cares for every patient he sees.
He remains up to date on new medical finds in his field and has given me hope for my several severe medical problems I could find no where else. I've been seen be Deepak Chopra, dr dean ornish and can honestly say Dr Stephan Smith is local and easily accessible and provides me with above average care. He hears me. He doesn't rush me through my appointment and he looks me in the eyes when we speak. I trust him 100% and I remember him in my prayers with his family every night. I am blessed to have him as my Dr.

From Our Website
Northwest Integrative Medicine, a division of Healthcare and Wellness Center, PLLC, is my practice specializing in allergy and environmental medicine. I started my practice of medicine in Richland, WA where I opened an urgent care center. I opened additional centers in Boise and Pocatello Idaho. Unfortunately, I had some trouble recruiting physicians for the Boise Clinic in time for our opening. We were open 14 hours a day, 7 days a week. When we opened we were seeing 6 patients a day the first week.
The functional medicine approach works by first identifying the root causes of disease and correcting them rather than concentrating on just treating symptoms. We start this by taking an inventory of your complaints using MSQ questionnaire, which helps us identify the areas where you are having complaints. Most chronically ill patients have symptoms across multiple systems, because the underlying inflammation is systemic.
