Lisa A Mainier, DO

Lisa Mainier

I am a double board-certified physician. I practice the virtually extinct “Art of Medicine” by blending valid, good quality, science-based medicine, in addition to an integrative, whole-body, respectful patient-centered approach to obtaining health. My experience in medicine was launched long before attending medical school! My medical understanding began over 40 years ago when I began studying the human body and disease from a cellular perspective in pathology. From there, I continued my life-long discovery of the human body, disease, health, and the application of medicine in many forms.

In the practice of medicine, I prefer wisdom, sophistication, and an unbiased perception of the problem, coupled with quality formal education, self-driven investigation, and research, rather than the fast-paced, one-size-fits-all medicine that is so prevalent today.  To learn more please click here
