Housed alongside the FAU Medicine Primary Care practice to maximize patient convenience and accessibility, the new 2,600-square-foot space features exam rooms, an infusion suite, a demonstration kitchen for nutrition programs, and a community gathering area. This “healing space” has been designed to address all factors that influence health, wellness and disease under one roof.

Dr. Drowos offers integrative medicine consultations and services, which may include conventional and non-pharmaceutical treatments including Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), nutritional guidance, and lifestyle counseling. She embraces a patient-clinician partnership with longer visit times, access to non- conventional evidence-based treatments, and methods emphasizing mind-body connections; movement, rest; nutrition; spirituality; relationships; and awareness of the physical environment.
