Primary Care for The Whole Person

Albuquerque Primary Care Doctor Treating Your Mind and Body as an Interconnected System

Integrative medicine emphasizes a patient-focused approach to health and wellness—including mental, emotional, functional, spiritual, social and community aspects—and treating the whole person. It aims for well-coordinated integrative medicine between different providers and institutions by coordinating conventional and complementary medical approaches.

As your primary care physician, Dr. Higi’s and Dr. Griebler’s family practice takes the time to get to know you and enlist you as a partner in your good health. You’ll work together to solve problems and maintain a healthy lifestyle to feel energetic in your career, hobbies and relationships.

At ABQ Integrative Family Practice, you can expect:

  1. A family doctor near me dedicated to the healing process, health promotion and illness prevention
  2. Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, spirit and community, as well as the body
  3. Conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response
  4. Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive whenever possible
  5. Inquiry-driven, science-based family medicine that is open to new paradigms
  6. Self-exploration and self-development to better the practice of family medicine

Is Concierge Care For You?

Dr. Higi’s and Dr. Griebler’s family medicine practice caters to people of nearly any age and every health condition. If you have a complex medical situation and are seeing multiple specialists, your Dr. Higi and Dr. Griebler can coordinate your care for the best possible outcomes. We’ll also take the time to fully understand your medical conditions and concerns, beyond the typical rushed 15-minute office visit. If you have minimal or no known health issues, we can help you maximize and sustain your good health. If you do develop a serious issue, you’ll have an experienced, dedicated family medicine advocate in your corner.

You’ll get all the services of traditional primary care medicine – and more. Dr. Higi and Dr. Griebler can spend additional time beyond the primary care medical visit to discuss lifestyle coaching, dietary counseling, alternative treatment therapies and complementary treatment modalities. You’ll benefit from a family doctor who focuses care on just a few hundred patients, rather than on thousands.

You can expect:

  • A family doctor near me.
  • Direct 24/7 cell phone access to your family practice physician, either Dr. Higi or Dr. Griebler.
  • Easy primary care scheduling online or via phone, email and text.
  • A medical advocate who coordinates care for your entire provider team, whether they are cardiologists, endocrinologists, or naturopaths and homeopaths. Your doctor will help you understand your health issues and what you need to do to maximize your health.
  • Communication and leadership if you need to be seen in an emergency room, by a new consultant, or are admitted to a hospital. We will contact providers with your medical conditions on your behalf to assist in coordinating your care.
  • Like everyone else, Dr. Higi and Dr. Griebler will occasionally experience an unanticipated absence, illness or family emergency. In these rare cases, one of our practice partners will take over for the other so that you will always have coverage by a family practice physician.
