CMT SPOTLIGHT: Meet I-Squared Medical Group, A New Integrative and Functional Medicine Practice in Chicago, Offering Patients a Path to Total Wellness through Individualized, Integrative Care

I-Squared reimagines the primary healthcare model through a hybrid approach that pairs insurance-based care with concierge-level membership options tailored to individual patient needs.

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–I-Squared Medical Group, an innovative provider of holistic integrative and functional healthcare, today announced the opening of its new primary care practice in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. Blending cutting-edge integrative and functional care with conventional medicine, I-Squared empowers patients to take control of their health through personalized plans focused on treatment, prevention and overall wellness. The new practice accepts insurance, while also offering enhanced care options, including a Chronic Care Package for complex conditions such as Mold and Lyme disease, and a concierge-level I-Squared Life Membership for exclusive access to treatment and services.

“Patients are frustrated by the current state of healthcare. Chronic conditions are rising exponentially along with exorbitant healthcare costs. Beyond simply relying on prescriptions to treat symptoms, they want to understand the root causes and take proactive control over their health,” said Dr. Dominic Patawaran, M.D., Board-Certified Family and Integrative Medicine physician and cofounder of I-Squared Medical Group. “I-Squared was founded on the belief that everyone’s path to wellness is unique—based on a multitude of factors, from genetics to nutrition, exercise and lifestyle. We use a holistic approach to treat the whole person through individualized care based on each patient’s specific needs and goals,” he added.

I-Squared offers a full range of cutting-edge Integrative and Functional treatments, including Functional Medicine Assessments, Anti-Aging, Weight Optimization, Fitness and Nutrition Coaching, IV Therapies, Bioidentical Hormone Therapies, and Chronic Care for Lyme and Mold Management. The practice serves a broad spectrum of patients, from millennials who want to proactively manage their health to people suffering from severe chronic conditions such as Lyme disease to high powered executives with high levels of stress and corresponding health issues.

“What makes I-Squared truly unique is that we provide premium, individualized, integrative care with a human touch. While we offer a broad range of services to help our patients live their best lives and achieve their wellness goals, we aren’t interested in being a big fitness gym or fancy private club. Our team and all of our resources are dedicated to creating an intimate, authentic connection with each patient so that we can truly personalize their care through the most advanced integrative tools and treatments,” said Dr. Angel Rivera, D.O., board-certified Internal Medicine physician and cofounder of I-Squared Medical Group.

Unlike pure pay-to-play concierge practices, I-Squared offers a hybrid model, including a premium I-Squared Life Membership, in addition to accepting insurance, making its total wellness model more inclusive and accessible.
