Over 40 years of professional experience since graduating from Northwestern University School of Medicine has only increased Dr. LaCava’s passion for partnering with people to achieve their ideal health. He views his work as a calling and the priority of his practice as caring.
Dr. LaCava started his career practicing traditional medicine, but found traditional approaches alone repeatedly fell short of helping patients achieve optimum health. Tired of managing chronic symptoms with therapies that barely addressed the root cause of illnesses, he began introducing alternative therapies and experiencing success.
Convinced of the value of alternative treatments, he founded The LaCava Center for Integrative Medicine well over 10 years ago.
