Integrative Medical Care in San Francisco
Paul Abramson MD
Deena Neff MD
Paul Abramson MD and Deena Neff MD are primary care and integrative medicine physicians who trained under Dr. Andrew Weil at the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine in Tucson. They both sees integrative medicine not as a separate specialty, but something that he infuses into every aspect of their medical practice - a deep commitment to helping their patients heal and achieve optimal outcomes, with whatever tools are appropriate and helpful, whether from conventional or alternative systems.
Dr. Neff and Dr. Abramson work closely with other types of practitioners, if needed, to assemble the right team for your particular situation. We work with on-site experts and a network of top specialists in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, Psychotherapy and Behavioral Medicine, Medical Nutrition Therapy, Manual Medicine and other disciplines.
In addition to his work with Dr. Weil, Dr. Neff and Dr. Abramson completed advanced training in functional medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine, adding to their existing repertoire of diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
