The Practice of Rowena Chua, MD Semper Ad Meliora Always Towards the Pursuit of Better

What is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative Medicine is an approach to care that places the patient at the center. A medical physician with integrative medicine training addresses a full range of influences on your health. It is healing-oriented care that seeks to restore and maintain health and wellness through more personalized care.

Rowena Chua, MD

Founder of Meliora Integrative Medicine

In 2013, I founded Meliora Integrative Medicine. Meliora is Latin for ‘better’. Semper ad meliora means ‘always towards the pursuit of better’. As an integrative physician, I am always looking to find a better way to practice medicine and pursue better ways to help my patients.

A Collaborative Relationship

We get to know each patient as a unique individual, helping them discover their body’s innate capacity to seek wellness, look for balance, and heal itself.

Our relationship is collaborative; we work as a team to find strategies that promote overall health and prevent illness… always with an emphasis on the whole person.

Dr. Chua complements a patient’s relationship with a primary care physician and the care of other medical specialists. The nature of her practice means she can spend more time with each patient than is often possible in a conventional medical setting.
