Biography: Dana G. Cohen, MD has been practicing integrative medicine for the last 20 years. She is currently the Medical Director of Complete Wellness, a 10,000-square foot integrated medical/wellness facility in the heart of Manhattan. She is a nationally renowned internal and integrative medicine specialist whose multi-disciplinary approach has helped treat thousands of patients using a variety of conventional and complementary therapies. In practice for nearly two decades, Cohen trained under the late Dr. Robert Atkins, author of the iconic “Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution,” and Dr. Ronald L. Hoffman, a pioneer of integrative medicine and founder of the Hoffman Center in New York City.
Cohen was certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in 1998, and was appointed to the Board of Directors of the American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM), the leading voice of integrative medicine, where she currently serves as advisor to the Board of Directors and advisor to the education committee. Through ACAM, she also developed an integrative medicine boot camp for practitioners and developed their first webinar based chelation therapy workshop. In addition, she is on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Organic and Natural Health Association.
Cohen’s passion for integrative medicine stems from her belief that medicine is an art, and a patient-centered, holistic approach is the vital first step on the path to overall health and wellness. She has helped thousands of patients, on the verge of giving up hope, find relief by restoring their well-being. Cohen’s practice emphasizes the individual, and she has helped countless patients limit their dependence on prescription medications by harnessing the power of diet, nutritional supplementation and lifestyle changes to find wellness.
