Merging the traditional with the holistic

This month will see Dr Thomas Kaiser, a partner in the Family Medical Centre in Almancil and director of the Vale do Lobo Medical Centre, collaborate with British dentist Dr John McKean in taking over the management of a new health centre in Albufeira at the Centro Pacífico clinic.

Staff at the new Family Health Centre in Albufeira will be pursuing a new concept of medicine, where medical doctors will work together with a selection of experienced complementary therapists with the added support of multilingual nurses and receptionists.

The doctors at the clinic hope that this cooperation between these two worlds of medicine will ensure that the patient receives the best possible care.

As well as traditional medical and dental services, modern cosmetic procedures including wrinkle fillers, Botox injections and ultrasonic liposuction will also be available from the clinic.

Complementary medical treatments at the clinic include Chinese medicine, homeopathy and Bowen Therapy among many others.

Comprehensive nursing care is also available from the staff at the health centre with nurses able to cover all aspects of district nursing from simple injection giving at patients homes to long term nursing programmes. 

Patients of the clinic will be able to benefit from a 24 hour emergency care facility, same day blood test results and almost instant CT and MRI scans.
