RICHARD LINCHITZ, M.D. graduated with honors with his Medical Degree from Cornell University Medical College, New York in 1973. He completed his residency at the famed University of California, San Francisco, Moffit Hospital. Moved by the personal stories of those living with chronic pain, Dr. Linchitz founded the first and only outpatient nationally accredited multi-specialty pain program in New York. Over the 22 years he managed the Pain Alleviation Center, he developed an integrated program of pain intervention based on lifestyle changes, rather than pharmaceutical-based solutions.
Dr. Linchitz has always lived by his own advice. An accomplished athlete, he lived what he thought was a healthy lifestyle until a diagnosis of lung cancer in 1998 (despite never having smoked) forever changed his life, career and overall perspective on medicine. After receiving a bleak prognosis for survival, he sought to understand his disease from the inside out and to design his own path towards Balanced Wellness. Determined to share the lessons learned from his own recovery, Dr. Linchitz became an expert in integrating Conventional and Alternative Approaches to treat disease. Consequently, he has created a unique program of health based on prevention and natural remedies.
Dr. Linchitz is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, the American Board of Pain Medicine and the American Board of Anti-aging Medicine. He has successfully passed board exams from the American Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology and the International Board of Oxidative Medicine. He is also trained and certified in Medical Acupuncture and Insulin Potentiation Therapy.
