Medical Wellness Associates is dedicated to helping you achieve optimum health---not just the absence of disease, but a state of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness.
Integrative Medicine combines conventional Western medicine with alternative or complementary treatments, such as acupuncture, chiropractic, prolotherapy, homeopathy, botanical medicine, etc.—all in an effort to treat the whole person.
As our name suggests, we are dedicated to helping you achieve optimum health---not just the absence of disease, but a state of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness.
Medical Wellness Associates, established in 1996, was an outgrowth of our original clinic Chiropractic Nutritional Associates, which was created in 1977. After treating thousands of patients successfully with alternative medicine, utilizing chiropractic manipulation, nutritional therapies, detoxification, botanical medicine, and homeopathy, Martin Gallagher, M.D., D.C. and his wife, Charlotte Ciotti, M.S., D.C. created the first federally recognized Integrative Medical Facility in the state of Pennsylvania. Complementary medical services, including Medical Acupuncture, IV Nutritional Therapies, Chelation, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapies, and many others, expanded the options for patients to receive individual, cutting edge health care in one facility.
Using a team approach, patients receive the best of Western Medicine combined with alternative or complementary treatments. Within this framework, we continue to be dedicated to our primordial intent, “To help sick people get well and educate each person to stay well.” We continue to evaluate our patients from the wellness model of, “Natural Remedies First, Drugs Second, and Surgery Last.”
Since Medical Wellness Associates was created in 1996 over 35,000 patients per year have been treated at MWA, including those with serious health challenges such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, allergies, and chronic pain.
Some patients consult with MWA because they are hoping to avoid a scheduled surgery or reduce their reliance on prescription drugs. Others become patients because they want to adopt a healthier lifestyle to prevent illness.
Whatever your reason for considering MWA, we are dedicated to helping you achieve your health goals.
