Health Medicine Center
Welcome to the Health Medicine Portal and its
applications in clinical practice, education and research.
What is the Health Medicine Center? How do we differ from the "standard" Healthcare or the Healthcare most Americans are used to?
Watch the video below and hear Dr. Len Saputo explain about the Health Medicine Center.
The Health Medicine Center is a comprehensive integrative clinic directed by its founder, Len Saputo, MD, who is board certified in internal medicine. We provide a personalized integrative care and are accustomed to helping people with health problems that have been considered unsolvable in both the mainstream and CAM. We have a particular expertise in complex health problems and are well known for managing pain without the use of pharmaceutical drugs.
At the Health Medicine Center our objective is to do what is right to make you feel better, and do it as comfortably and safely as possible. This is done in the context of each unique person's whole life story and how it is interwoven into the fabric of the entire universe.
HMC is a comprehensive integrative health and healing center that operates through collaboration. Medical director, Len Saputo, MD and HMC's eclectic staff guide the integration of the best strategies from mainstream, complementary, and alternative medicine for all HMC patients. The pillars of Health Medicine are built on working together, addressing the whole person — body, mind, emotion, and spirit — and meeting our patients where they are.

We partner with you to help you access your own innate resources for healing body, mind, emotion, and spirit.
