Our goal is to provide you a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan, and access to services that ensure that your experience is as free of stress as possible.

In the video below our founding director, Dr. Greg Foltz, talks about the importance of integrative care at the Ivy Center. He discusses one of the most important parts of care - helping patients to not feel alone with their diagnosis.
