WHAT’S NEW AT THE CENTER
The September 2016 newsletter is now on online. Please click here to view it.
Flu Vaccinations Available October 1 – Our Flu vaccine has arrived. Low dose influenza vaccinations via intradermal administration are again being offered at the Center. Studies have shown using a lower dose of vaccine via an intradermal route elicited antibody responses similar to full-dose IM vaccination among healthy elderly patients. It has been our experience this type of vaccination has very little to no side-effects. Cost $30.
Product Highlights: IntestiMax™ powder is a product we have used at the Center for over a decade to provide nutritional support for the intestinal lining while also providing antioxidant support. This pleasant tasting product contains L-Glutamine, N-acetyl D-glucosamine. Gamma Oryzanol, Ginger, Marigold, Marshmallow root and Cranesbill root. This product has been wonderful for many of our patients with irritable bowel syndrome or “sensitive” stomachs.
NEW STAFF: We are excited to announce Mary McIntosh has just been added to our staff. She is a medical assistant with years of experience and will be assisting patients and Dr. Erickson. Mary is married with 4 children.

A WORD TO PROSPECTIVE PATIENTS
We know that selecting a new doctor is a big decision, and we thank you for inquiring about The Preventive Medicine Center of Gainesville, Inc. The Center was established in March 2000 by Dr. Robert A. Erickson in response to more and more Americans seeking complementary and alternative therapies to traditional drug therapy alone, while at the same time wanting a trained medical doctor participating in their health care needs.
At the Center we take a nutritional approach to health and healing, rather than prescribing drugs whenever possible. This approach is integrated with the medications a patient is currently taking from other physicians. It has been our experience in some cases medications can eventually be reduced or even eliminated entirely if a patient so desires. The intent of this approach is to elevate one’s health through nutrition and life-style changes, rather than just treatment of symptoms with a drug.
We realize this type of approach is not for everyone and does not apply to every health condition. We encourage you to explore this website to get a better idea of our approach to health and wellness.
