Dayton Medical Center in Miami has long been recognized as one of the leading holistic and integrative medical practices in the country. Uniquely situated across from Miami Beach’s Atlantic Ocean, the Center stands as Southeast Florida’s oldest existing medical facility integrating complementary, conventional and alternative medicine (CAM), first introduced in 1973 by its Visionary Founder, Osteopathic Physician Dr. Martin Dayton.
Medical and health conditions that are treated can range anywhere from the uncomplicated like colds or allergies to the highly complex like stage IV (advanced) cancer, all approached with dedication to every detail. No matter what the condition, this friendly outpatient medical center prides itself on treating each patient as a unique individual who deserves and receives the utmost attention, compassion and respect. Whichever medical approach you decide to choose, conventional or alternative or both, we can help improve your health.
Dayton Medical Center integrates natural, conventional and non-conventional medical care from around the world to optimize health while minimizing risk. Signs and symptoms are viewed as the result of underlying imbalances that impair health. Such imbalances may be due to bodily deficiencies, toxicity, and dysfunctional structural and emotional issues. The center addresses their underlying causes. The detection and elimination of disease and its causes are addressed both actively and proactively to maximize health excellence. The use of natural, less invasive means is emphasized.
At the beginning of your visit, you will be asked to list what major health concerns you want to have resolved and how you prefer to have them treated in order to pace your office visit for maximum efficiency in the scheduled time allotted. You may elect to have purely conventional methods of care or integrative methods. The advantages or disadvantages of different options are outlined for you.
Throughout the past four decades, as conventional and alternative fields have continued to advance, many technologies have been adapted. Taking from each the best they have to offer has proved to be extremely beneficial. For example, integrating technology from both fields using intravenous therapies can not only enhance healing for anti-aging and performance enhancement, but it can help to overcome degenerative diseases like cancer, heart, clogged arteries or circulatory problems, auto-immune diseases like COPD or Lupus and neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s or Multiple Sclerosis. In addition to directly healing the signs and symptoms of a disease, the Center’s approach also identifies and treats their underlying causes, such as deficiencies and toxicity.
HealthQuest Integrative Medicine Center is an independent division of Dayton Medical Center Miami and was established to focus on complementary and alternative medicine.
