Patient CareProviding the highest quality healthcare by blending proven conventional and complementary medicine approaches from around the world
The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine is committed to providing the highest-quality healthcare by blending proven conventional and complementary medicine approaches from around the world.
Our clinical programs focus on safe and effective treatment, patient empowerment, and whole-person healing. Initial clinical evaluations, which are typically one-hour long, give our patients a chance to completely “tell their story” and establish a relationship with their practitioner. Our clinicians have training in both integrative and conventional medicine, so they can thoughtfully combine elements of these systems to offer patients a professionally guided, comprehensive approach to their health care.
We invite you to explore the integrative health services offered in our clinical practice. You can access these services directly, as determined by your individual health insurance plan, or through the UCSF self-pay option.
Our Approach to Care
Our licensed and credentialed practitioners have extensive skill, training, and experience. US News & World Report has named UCSF Medical Center one of the nation’s top ten hospitals for over ten consecutive years, as well as the best hospital in California and the Bay Area.
We practice relationship-centered care in which the patient and practitioner form a partnership to help promote healing. We carefully listen to your concerns and work with you to develop a healing plan specific to your needs.
Our practitioners work with you, and with each other, to develop an optimal treatment program for you. When appropriate, we also collaborate closely with providers from other departments and institutions.
We focus on well-being, health maintenance, and early intervention. We provide you with information, exercises, and self-care techniques to empower you to take control of your own health and support whole-person healing and well-being.
