The way you do one thing is the way you do everything. At American Integrative, we do everything with the utmost care.
This begins with our pharmaceutical products. We are a compounding pharmacy, which means that our products are specifically made to meet the unique needs of each patient as opposed to the one-size-fits-all approach more typically employed by pharmacies. It is a crucial distinction; what protects your health is not the same as what might work for others. This is what compounding means: our pharmacist works with your doctor to arrive at very specific, tailored solutions to better your health.
But even among compounding pharmacies, American Integrative takes care to another level. We go far beyond what is just legally required; to ensure the absolute integrity of our products, we refuse to take any shortcuts. All of our ingredients are American made and certified by third party small batch testing for purity and potency. All of our capsules, rather than using cheap gelatin or other animal by-products, are vegetable-based. We are absolutely diligent about the quality of every aspect of each product that comes from our pharmacy so that patients can feel complete confidence about what they are ingesting and doctors can be confident that desired outcomes will be achieved.
American Integrative was founded a decade ago for this precise reason. We discovered that medical centers across the nation were not achieving consistent outcomes, largely due to a factor beyond the control of the prescribing physician — the inconsistency of the products delivered by varying pharmacies.
“We found by sending prescriptions to varying pharmacies, the outcomes for the patients were different,” said Stephanie Cartozian, the founder and president of American Integrative. “The blood levels were different. The same prescription sent to another pharmacy didn’t have the same outcomes. We realized that by working with a pharmacy that uses these more stringent guidelines, the patients had the best outcomes, and the doctors were more highly regarded by their patients. Most importantly, the patients were getting better.”
Timing is likewise crucial. A patient can’t get better if his or her prescription is not immediately accessible. This is why American Integrative delivers on a pair of promises nearly unprecedented among pharmacies of any kind: when you call, you will speak to a real human being, and if you place your order before 5 p.m., it will be on your doorstep the next morning (Orders earlier in the day often arrive the same day, and all shipping is free).
What all this adds up to is a pharmacy of unparalleled excellence. The proof is in our clientele. Our roster includes not only some of the most nationally esteemed doctors but also the most revered professional sports franchises and college athletic departments in the world, including the Golden State Warriors, the New England Patriots, the Houston Astros, the United States Olympic Committee, and the University of Kentucky. Elite athletes, the most finely tuned human bodies on the planet, chose American Integrative for the same reason all our patients do: because the way you do one thing is the way you do everything. At American Integrative, we do what we do with complete care and attention to every detail in order to provide the best health outcome possible.
“Our goal is simple,” said Cartozian. “We want patients to have the utmost confidence what they are about to take is the highest quality it could possibly be.”
