Lawrence K. Gray, MD
Dr. Gray has spent years helping patients palliate the discomfort of acute and chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia and other symptoms. Board Certified in Internal and Geriatric Medicine, Dr. Gray spent years in academic medicine as the Chief of Geriatric Medicine and Associate Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Huron Road Hospital in East Cleveland. During the 1990's, pursuing an interest in the associations between spiritual comfort and symptom relief, Dr. Gray acquired additional Board Certification in Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
For Dr. Gray, much of the patient-physician time together should focus on illuminating each individual's pro-inflammatory lifestyle choices. Then, over time, patients will be asked to take control of their symptoms and encouraged and guided to reduce their symptoms through better lifestyle choices.
Empowering patients with the tools to not only reduce their symptoms but actually heal their diseases is the goal.
