Barbara Mack, M.D. Mission Statement

I view people as changing physical, emotional and spiritual beings. I recognize that health is influenced not only by medical care but by behaviors—such as eating, activity and sleep habits—as well as stress, genetics, environment, culture and other factors that may be unknown. I honor this view of human beings by listening carefully to my patients, and offering supportive care that helps individuals live in ways that nourish health and well being and prevent disease. I provide whole-person centered care that combines conventional medical treatment with appropriate preventative and therapeutic approaches from functional medicine, mind-body medicine and some herbal approaches. I support a judgment-free, nurturing environment. I understand that you deserve to be the focus of your care. I support your chosen journey to better health, wherever you begin your steps. The root of the word doctor is from the Latin word “docere” meaning, “to teach.” Thus, I believe my role is to help you understand the factors that affect your health. I am dedicated to make use of the best that science, medicine, and art have to offer, to empower you to reach your true potential.
