TEACHING SHIFT APPOINTMENTS

Dr. Peter D’Adamo supervises a teaching shift at the Center of Excellence in Generative Medicine (COE). The shift typically consists of five student clinicians and one resident physician, supervised by Dr. D’Adamo. The COEGM Teaching Shifts are an excellent choice for prospective patients who enjoy working in a group environment and participating in the education of tomorrow’s doctors.  Patients who desire direct one-to-one contact may wish to be seen as a direct private patient of one of the COEGM staff physicians may instead wish to consider scheduling as a private patient.

To schedule an appointment, contact The Center of Excellence by email or by phone: 203 366-0526. When calling, please identify yourself as a prospective teaching shift patient.


PRIVATE PRACTICE APPOINTMENTS

The COEGM Private Practice Shifts are an excellent choice for prospective patients who require more one-to-one supervision. As a COEGM private practice patient, your relationship is directly with the physician you schedule your initial appointment with and continue onwards with that physician . This makes the private practice shift an excellent choice for individuals who require a more direct relationship with their physician. Patients who enjoy working in a group environment and participating in the education of tomorrow’s physicians may instead wish to consider scheduling as teaching shift patient.

Opus23 then ‘translates’ the raw genetic data into clinically relevant and important information that the COE staff physicians can then use to institute preventive or therapeutic actions.

Facial Acupuncture

At the COEGM, all of our acupuncturists have been trained and certified in facial rejuvenation acupuncture.  We will meet with you to determine what underlying patterns may be interfering with you feeling and looking your best, and what specifically you would like to focus on.  We can help improve the appearance of discolorations, redness, puffiness, dry or oily skin, swelling, congestion, sagging, scars, wrinkles, and overall brightness of complexion.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Proper colon hydrotherapy such as that offered by the COEGM is always provided in a safe, clean and professional environment. All therapists have been trained and certified via The National Board for Colon Hydrotherapy NBCHT.  Our machinery meets strict FDA guidelines for medical devices, and instruments that come into bodily contact are single use and fully disposable. Colon hydrotherapy has a long history of use in distrubances of the digestive tract, such as chronic constipation and atonic bowel. However, because many of the manifestations of systemic toxicity are wide ranging, a surprising number of “non-digestive” disorders often respond to colon hydrotherapy. The usual session lasts about 45 minutes.
