We don’t like to “toot our own horn,” and luckily we don’t have to. Read what some of our patients and clients have to say about The Center for Integrated Medicine.
For years, I had digestive issues. I went to see several different doctors, had my gallbladder removed, got loads of tests and med after med after med. Still had digestive issues. Went to CIM to see if acupuncture would help, and Dr. Marie tested me and told me that she thought food intolerances could be the cause. Since being tested in October and removing my food intolerances, gluten being one of them, my digestive issues have disappeared. The near constant pain in my chest has been completely gone since November. I am so very thankful to Dr. Marie and CIM for resolving in a couple of months what the other doctors couldn’t figure out for years. There is absolutely no downside~ and the UPSIDE could be enormously life-changing!
I wanted to let you know how my elimination diet has worked out. As you remember, I was trying to figure out if there was a link between diet and my acne. After 80 days of no wheat, sugar, or yeast, my face had mostly cleared up, but there were still random breakouts I couldn’t link to anything. Also, my chest and back showed moderate improvement. I started taking a time-release probiotic of Acidophilus bacteria, and within days my face was as clear as its ever been, and my chest and back have shown dramatic improvement. I am basically certain that my acne is caused by yeast. Acidophilus bacteria kill yeast, and since the probiotic is time release, it doesn’t open up until the small intestine, where the yeast live. I think the time-release probiotic is the key. The journey isn’t over, but it is great to finally know that I can control my skin if I want. Thanks for your help, it has been life-changing.
Thank you for the home program!!! But more importantly thank you for giving me the confidence to run again!!! I know if I continue with the exercises I will continue to improve!!!
Your insight is invaluable!!! Thanks for investing your time in my case! It feels like I’m your only patient!”
“It has been a week since the marathon, but without the work of Dr. Pappas with my foot, I’m not certain I would have had the confidence going into it. The exercises, and the care given to me, were far and away the best I have ever received. Thank you so much for what you do, and what you will continue to do for others!”
“Dr. Pappas, thanks for being a great doctor. Thanks to you I was able to overcome my injury and beat my previous PR (personal record) by 16 minutes! I finished the Chicago Marathon in 3:46:51.”
“I went to see Dr Dino. It was the first appointment that I could get. Great guy! Truly cares about the patient. He set up my MRI and double checked insurance for approval. Then he called me with the bad news (fractured second metatarsal) but found me a specialist in my plan since it was a break. My orthopedist released me and Ok’d me to start running again. I am VERY pleased overall!”
“Thanks Doc. Easily one of the best medical experiences that I’ve had. I’d recommend you to anyone, and I have.”
Dr P I did it! Chicago Marathon 101010! I finished AND I ran the entire way! No walking!! I feel pretty good today. The stairs are a little hard to tackle,but I’m a happy woman!
I want to thank you for taking such good care of me through this journey. At 51, with having back surgery, and missing a little confidence from traveling a path of the unknown.. your support and help made this possible. You not only kept me in as good of shape physically, but the emotional/mental support was what helped the most. Running a marathon is physical, but if you’ve done the training and are physically prepared it then becomes only a mental game. I know this now!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart
I miss our sessions, not only because the treatments felt good; but I also enjoyed our conversations. You are a very lovely person. My feeling in my leg and foot is beginning to return and I’m sure it would not have done so well without your help. Keep up the good work and thanks again for your help. I will be sure to recommend you if the situation occurs.
Dr. Marie Tholl and Dr. Dino Pappas are incredible!! Dr. Tholl gave me some VERY needed relief from my allergies with only 2 visits. I was surprised how well the combination of an adjustment and acupuncture worked! Dr. Pappas performed miracles on my husband. He was in pain for 5 months and felt relief after the first visit. He is at 100% after only 5 visits. Thank you!!!!!!
I highly recommend both Dr Marie and Dr Dino – they’ve been working with my family – they can help everyone, any age (my daughter is 15 and my son is 5).
Dino, on behalf of myself and the Darien Dynamo Organization I want to say a big thank you for the outstanding job that you and Dr. Marie did at this weekend’s soccer tournament. You guys worked non stop all these hours and the assistance that you provided to all these athletes was priceless. You were always there and helped every athlete with any assistance they needed. Our tournament was a huge success and you and your staff helped tremendously to make this happen..Thank you again for your assistance on the 2200 athletes that participated this weekend and I hope we can continue to work together on providing professional diagnosis and treatment to all our athletes in the future.
