W. Price, MD – Statement of Practice
Optimal health is much more than the absence of illness. It is
the conscious pursuit of the highest qualities of spiritual, emotional,
physical, cognitive and social well-being. This is, and has been
the focus of my practice for nearly three decades. As a holistic
• I encourage patients to take control of their own health
with information, better choices and the use of humor, love, hope
• I urge and support patients to build on their own innate
While I incorporate conventional western medicine and other complementary
practices into my practice, my work with patients starts from
the perspectives that unbalance in our lives cause and worsen
illness. In my belief
• Preventing illness is always preferable to treating illness—saving
time, pain and money for the patient.
• Searching for the underlying causes of disease is more
effective than treating symptoms alone.
My hope is to engage individuals and families in an integrated
path toward well-being that brings in the best of eastern and
western approaches. The result is a conscious journey toward wellness
bringing peace and joy.
