(Jan. 19, 2018) Concierge, integrative and aesthetic medicines are available at Shore Wellness and Med Spa, opened to the public on Jan. 3 in the Pavillions on Race Track Road in Berlin.

“We look and treat each patient as an individual,” Dr. William “Eddie” Gunn said. “It makes good medicine to spend a lot of time with each patient and make sure they feel well taken care of and not rushed. Patients receive quality care with us.”

Along those lines, Gunn said integrative medicine puts the patient first and addresses all needs, including physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a person’s health.

“We try and get to the root of the problem,” Gunn said. “Why are you feeling this way? Once we get to the root, we treat naturally, focusing on saliva and urine testing more so than blood testing. We talk about their social environment and look at the whole individual.”

Aesthetic medicine focuses on improving a patients’ cosmetic appearance through treatment of scars, skin laxity, wrinkles, hair loss, excess fat, cellulite, unwanted hair, skin discoloration and spider veins.

“[We offer] Botox, derma fillers, sclerotherapy and chemical peels – all the nonsurgical and natural ways to make people look and feel better,” Gunn said. “For anti-aging, we use bio-identical hormones that come from plants and are identical to our own hormone levels. We have a weight-loss clinic, which is all patient dependent and is specific to each client.”

The weight-loss program at Shore Wellness and Med Spa monitors patient heath, while designing a diet and fitness regimen for each individual based on their lifestyle, medical history and needs.

Under the realm of concierge, each patient receives a personal health-care coach, and doctors make sure to take time with each individual, Gunn said.

“Patients have access to us 24/7, with same-day and next-day appointments and no wait times,” he said.

There are four exam rooms at the facility, in addition to a lab on-site.

“A lot revolves around our stress and hormone levels,” Gunn said. “It’s all about getting to the root of the problem.”

Shore Wellness and Med Spa doctors can also give medical cannabis recommendations for those suffering from chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, seizure disorder, glaucoma, severe nausea, and persistent muscle spasms.

In March, Dr. Angela Gibbs will join the team at Shore Wellness and Med Spa.

“We practiced at PRMC together and she is truly a patient advocate,” Gunn said. “She spends hours getting to the root of the problem and fights for her patients. You don’t find too many doctors out there like that and she makes me a better doctor.”

In the future, Gunn would like to offer additional wellness services such as massage therapy, acupuncture and reflexology treatments.

“We want to add these treatments to help people with chronic pain,” Gunn said. “We stay away from narcotics and addictive medicines. I would also like to see a gym attached to the clinic to further encourage healthy lifestyles.”

On Friday, Jan. 26, Shore Wellness and Med Spa in Berlin will have an open house from 5-8 p.m. where future or current patients can tour the facility, get more information on services, munch on some treats, take home a brochure, or meet and ask Gunn questions.

Shore Wellness and Med Spa is located at 11200 Race Track Road #104, inside the Pavillions.
