Another Way

East Meets West

We help individuals who are often with the current healthcare system and who know there is another way to find answers and achieve optimal health by examining the roots of their health story.

Third Opinion MD is the bridge between ancient Eastern wisdom and modern medicine. This “East meets West” approach takes the best, most effective elements of each philosophy and uses them to transform the “patient” role from a passive healthcare recipient to an empowered driver of their own health management and prevention.

Discover that health is simple, achievable and so much more than a doctor’s visit.

Restore and maintain your health according to your individual blueprint with the tools you already have at hand.

Break free from unhealthy patterns sold to us by traditional models that are
counterintuitive to true, lasting, health.

“I especially appreciated [Dr. De La Torre’s] point to look beyond what had been done. I feel she gave great advice and would hope other doctors would lean more in that direction. She asked about nutrition, etcetera, and I feel came up with a great holistic plan for me.”

About

Barbara de la Torre, MD

As a second-generation integrative physician with knowledge of a more holistic model of care, I’ve come to love both types of medicine because each has the strength to overcome the other’s weaknesses.

But I believe we can evolve to a much higher level of care by integrating a broader perspective of health.

Discovering your body from a more integrated model means we can assess the root cause of your health concerns and disease, rather than simply treating its symptoms. When you learn to understand the bigger picture, your health is simplified. It becomes possible to treat, achieve, and ultimately maintain.

Every Third Opinion MD client begins with a “blank slate” and with individualized attention. Together, we focus on education, self-ownership, and simple methods for staying connected with ourselves. By actively listening, we begin to understand factors that maintain our health and those things that disrupt the balance.
