Contact Our Medical Director

Martha M. Grout of the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine, our Scottsdale integrative medical center, is dedicated to the natural treatment of cancer, Lyme disease, diabesity (cardiometabolic), irritable bowel and other chronic diseases.

"American mainstream medicine is wonderful in acute emergency situations, but for chronic diseases brought on by genetics, diet and lifestyle, allopathic medicine is not much help. I do not see that pharmaceutical medicine helps people heal from chronic illness." - Dr. Martha Grout
