Dr. Podolny is dedicated to the integration of conventional allopathic medicine with appropriate mind/body interventions. He has practiced and taught Rolfing® and mind/body medicine for the last thirty-five years. In addition to his work in Buenos Aires, Moscow, Stockholm, London and, Sydney, he spent nine years in Japan and has a working knowledge of the language.
My purpose is to provide quality health care that is personalized and comprehensive. I am trained in both integrative and conventional medicine and have no bias in their application. At any given moment any intervention may be appropriate. Sometimes an MRI or course of antibiotics is the perfect intervention. Other times lifestyle changes, acupuncture, or flower essences may be the key. Assessing what that intervention is, and its application in a timely manner, I believe is the essence of personalized and appropriate health care.
