Dr. Primas is board certified by The American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. Blending the best of Western & Eastern medical concepts, Dr. Primas utilizes both modalities in preventing and treating illness. Dr. Primas emphasizes promoting health, preventing illness and raises awareness of dis-ease in our lives rather than merely managing symptoms. He is a firm believer in the WHO definition of health; Health is a state of complete physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being and not merely the absence of dis-ease or infirmity. His use of both traditional and complementary/integrative/holistic medicine like acupuncture, qigong, exercise & nutrition focus on the whole patient and his/her relation to their environment & specific individual needs. In addition to using traditional medications to treat a variety of maladies, Dr. Primas supplements treatment with natural medications as well.
Dr. Primas is always on the cutting edge of medicine and is now guiding his patients using genomics and telomere length for a more detailed, personal approach to their health. He firmly believes that this approach not only extends the human lifespan, but significantly improves the quality of one’s life. He encourages and supports his patients’ quest for optimal health by guiding them through the myriad of results from their genomic profiles, reviewing their data from personal health tracking devices and apps and advising them on how to best interpret the data and make it useful.
Dr. Primas practices what he preaches. Dr. Primas believes that physicians should be active role models to improve the lives of patients and ultimately the community as well. While encouraging his patients to live a healthy lifestyle, he exercises daily and eats a nutritionally dense, organic (mostly local) and balanced diet congruent with the ancestral health movement which Dr. Primas has personally seen benefits in many of his patients. He is also a pioneer in the quantified self movement.
