Our Name

Our name comes from the latin Aletris farinosa, the plant commonly called Stargrass or True Unicorn.

Aletris farinosa is a white lily that has been used for centuries by Native Americans as a general female tonic – for conditions such as uterine fibroids, ovarian complaints and infertility.

Aletris farinosa is indigenous to the eastern United States, and is listed by some states as endangered.

An Integrative Center

At ALETRIS, we recognize that health is more than the absence of disease. Our desire to practice integrative medicine comes from an understanding that a multi-disciplinary approach to medicine provides the maximum therapeutic benefit. So what exactly does that mean?

It means that we are more than just individuals renting space under one roof. We engage in constant dialogue focused on continuing education and improving our clinical excellence.

It means that each provider is required to participate in weekly grand rounds, where patient cases are discussed anonymously in group forum. Five minds working towards providing solutions far exceeds the treatment abilities of just one practitioner. Imagine…seeing one of us means benefiting from the knowledge of all of us.

It means that our physicians are constantly engaging in continuing education and returning to the clinic to educate one another. Our center is committed to excellence in clinical education. Call our office to schedule an appointment with an ALETRIS physician.
