"Offit is a perfect example of the unconscionable arrogance, avarice, hypocrisy, ignorance, and deceit of the stereotypical, "insider" cronies of the multinational, pharmaceutical corporate complex."
By Anne Dachel
Things are changing. There really are doctors out there who care about keeping us healthy, not just treating the chronically ill and disabled with no hope of getting well. I love talking with these people because it gives me so much hope.
I recently got know Dr. Mitchell Fleisher of Nellysford, VA Dr. Fleisher is a double board-certified family physician specializing in classical homeopathy, nutritional and botanical medicine, chelation, bio-oxidative, and bio-identical hormone therapy with over thirty years experience practicing the gentler art and science of integrative medicine. Dr. Fleisher has served on the faculty of the New England School of Homeopathy and as a Clinical Preceptor for the esteemed Hahnemann College of Homeopathy, and is a graduate of both of these homeopathic institutions. He attended Stanford University School of Medicine, during which time he began his homeopathic studies in 1975, and he is a former Assistant Clinical Professor of Family Medicine at the Medical College of Virginia and former Associate Medical Director of the MCV/Blackstone Family Practice Residency Training Program, of which he is a graduate.
I asked Dr. Fleisher a number of questions about his practice and his personal beliefs.
Describe your experience as a physician. How did you become interested in homeopathy and alternative medicine?
Why do you practice complementary and alternative medicine?
