Integrative Medicine Arrives in Maplewood at Renew Holistic Health
Just steps from the Maplewood train station, nestled in the tree line, sits the bright, sunny, newly renovated office at 175 Maplewood Ave., Suite 2, of Allison Fox, M.D. Having practiced primary care with a holistic approach in New York City for several years, she recently realized her dream of opening her own integrative consulting practice in Maplewood. Says Dr. Fox, “It means so much to be able to provide this care to my community.”
Dr. Fox is passionate about helping people resolve their symptoms and feel joyful again. What sets her apart from other holistic and integrative practitioners in the area is that as a Brown University trained physician, she is first and foremost a scientist who understands disease progression and the critical importance of some select medications. That being said, her preference is to avoid medication when at all possible. Her balanced approach helps patients find a path through their illness that is devoid of unnecessary, unfounded, and expensive modalities. She does not sell anything or have any financial interest in any product or vendor that she recommends. For that reason, patients can be assured that her advice emanates from her heart and her head, never her wallet.
She is currently seeing patients of all ages with all medical backgrounds and symptoms. She hopes to help bridge the divide between the allopathic and holistic communities by offering sound medical advice, compassionate care, and a particular focus on living a clean, symptom-free life. As she says, “This is the new medicine, and I am excited and grateful to be a part of it.”
