Dr. Iankowitz recognizes that each individual presents with unique needs. There are no two bodies alike. Treatment for presenting symptoms are individualized, taking into account a person’s body chemistry.

Each patient has his/her own ideas about

  • what ‘wellness’ looks like
  • preferred short and long term goals
  • what ‘exercise’ means
  • dietary preferences
  • whether or not yoga or meditation are worth time/attention
