About Dr. Lawrence
Allen L. Lawrence, MD, MA, PhD, is the Medical Director at Advanced Wellness Medical, a Preventive, Wellness, Healing, & Longevity Medical Practice in Thousand Oaks, California. Dr. Lawrence received his Medical Degree from the UC Irvine School of Medicine. He completed his internship at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center and an Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, also in Los Angeles.
After gaining years of experience as a surgical practitioner, Dr. Lawrence decided that his practice of medicine should be about preventing health problems before they start rather than leaving his patients to end up either being forced to use surgical procedures or dangerous medications to treat rather than cure and solve chronic unrelenting problems for the rest of their life. Dr. Lawrence subsequently changed his specialty to Functional Medicine and has become a nonsurgical practitioner. He now focuses entirely on Prevention using Functional Medical techniques and integrative wellness to help his patients avoid getting ill and healing underlying problems that prevent them from enjoying their older age. The result is an increase in longevity and overall quality of life.
Dr. Lawrence presently has more than 23 books and has written more than 100 medical articles about integrative wellness, natural treatments and self-healing. He strives to educate his patients on methods of stress management and natural healing, working with them to create a plan that prevents and eliminates illness associated with stress, nutritional problems.
At Advanced Wellness Medical Group, Dr. Lawrence and his prevention-oriented colleagues see men and women, 18 years of age and older, no matter their background nor their medical history. They work with patients to evaluate their overall wellness and existing medical problems and use his background in both traditional, Integrative and Functional medicine to help each individual understand and heal their problems so they can feel their best and prevent future illness. Advanced Wellness Medical can help you find a health-inducing medical program to help you resolve your body, your mind, your emotions and spirit.
