Dr. Carrie J. Graves, DOM, AP

We are offering comprehensive wellness treatments to the Clearwater community as well as the greater Tampa Bay area.  

Dr. Carrie works with patients to find the root cause of their discomfort or illness, combining the accurate and detailed DNA and blood testing of Western medicine with natural modalities that restore function to the body. She believes in more than just the “Band-Aid” approach of relieving symptoms. While it is true that she is skilled in pain relief, she prefers to heal the root cause of illness and help you achieve your ideal feeling of wellness, so that you can get on with your life.

Dr. Carrie incorporates several proven modalities to assess and treat patients, including a thorough evaluation of past medical histories, complete integrative medical analysis, comprehensive treatment in coordination with Traditional Chinese Medicine, and most importantly: dietary and lifestyle adjustment to achieve optimal health.

In addition to Primary Care, Dr. Carrie has a specific interest in helping athletes and other active people obtain their peak performance levels in training and competition. She holds a degree in sports medicine and is an active member of the CrossFit and marathon communities. Understanding the challenges of physical activity, she works closely with athletes to analyze and treat recurring injuries and bio-mechanical issues.
