Integrative Medicine is a healing-oriented medicine that takes into account the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle, placing a particular emphasis on the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient.

Dr. Zaklin works together with his patients partnering his foundation in Internal Medicine with Mind-Body Medicine, Yoga, Energy Medicine, Herbal Medicine, Cannabis Therapeutics, Nutrition and Functional Medicine to optimize health and wellness. When appropriate, referrals may be made to physicians in the community, colleagues in the Mass General Brigham Network, as well as Integrative practitioners specializing in manual therapy, acupuncture, herbalism, behavioral therapy, or energy medicine.
