Dr. Stephen E. Grable, M.D.

Complementary Care Center

Complementary Care Center was begun in 1996. Dr. Grable is a board-certified internal medicine doctor who had five years’ experience in a hospital-based practice. Treating patients using a conventional model, pharmaceuticals were used to treat symptoms. It became evident to Dr. Grable that using chemical after chemical to modify physical or mental physiology, was not optimal.

Dr. Grable became fully trained in five element acupuncture (although no longer practices acupuncture). This led to a 20 year exploration in what has been coined “functional medicine”. Thousands of dollars and hours have been spent studying various aspects of holistic medicine. The reader may view Dr. Grable’s curriculum vitae. Our clinic is unique in its approach to truly looking at the body, mind and spirit. We spend 45 minutes with new patients who have filled out an extensive questionnaire. By searching for and identifying root cause, one can begin the healing process.

We see a wide variety of patients from someone just seeking a general physical to those with chronic fatigue syndrome. We can provide additional assistance into disorder such as autoimmune disease, cancer and pain. Balancing hormones is a large part of our practice. Essentially any problem that you have can be improved by identifying and balancing nutritional deficiencies, detoxifying and helping with emotional issues.
