Dr. Lambert has practiced in traditional Western medicine for over 25 years, in both an outpatient clinic setting and hospital care. This model has powerful diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, which are often effective and lifesaving. Clinical experience, however, has shown some limitations. These limitations usually arise when a patient’s symptoms defy a specific diagnosis based on a lack of laboratory or radiographic data. While studying eastern medical traditions and learning acupuncture, Dr. Lambert was able to see this aspect of patient care through an alternative lens. Many symptom complexes became clearer. Effective treatment modalities arise, often without the necessity of pills or medications. Dr. Lambert believes that the appropriate melding of these two traditions offers significantly improved care. He is a proud parishioner of St. Anthony of Padua.
