Today's episode of Redefining Medicine features Nathan Neil, MD. Dr Neil is a Board-Certified Family Physician, and also the Founding Diplomate of the American Board of Holistic Medicine (now called the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine). From the time that he began medical school at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine, it has always been his passion to try to help as many of his patients as possible. Dr Neil is never satisfied with sending patients home with the cliché: “Sorry, we just don’t have any answers for you.” Dr Neil believes that conventional medicine has many answers, but sometimes they aren't enough.
Dr. Neil started his medical career as a family physician providing the most comprehensive care that he could. Over the years, he found that other disciplines (some of which were already included in the scope of medical practice, and some of which were considered tangential) held the promise of providing useful answers for those patients who did not respond adequately to conventional medical care. Slowly his practice evolved into something new, that did not really have a name, and he called it Complex Medical Problem Solving. Over time, he found himself working mostly with those unfortunate patients who had not received a clear diagnosis from conventional medicine and were suffering with persistent and debilitating illnesses. These included Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Lyme disease with its co-infections, Autism, and all varieties of Chronic Pain, amongst others.
Despite his many years of clinical practice, he remains optimistic that he can help every single person who comes through his door.
