Acupuncture is Welcomed into Brooklyn Primary Care Practices

Share Article

Natural and homeopathic health remedies have taken the world by storm. In one Prominis medical clinic, an acupuncturist has found a home alongside an internist, gastroenterologist, urologist, and cardiologist.

This form of healing works with pain management, gynecological conditions, trauma, and even post-rehab.

Acupuncture is a brand of Eastern medicine that addresses imbalances in the body, both physical and emotional. Clients believe in the preventative power of alternative medicine, and credit acupuncture with relieving tension headaches, upset stomach, discomfort from allergies, and pain from anxiety and stress.

“There is a tremendous amount of energy in the body,” says acupuncturist Aster Martirosyan. “Acupuncture is about addressing this energy. I ask a lot of questions about lifestyle (food, stress), and look for discoloration of the skin to address toxins in the body. This form of healing works with pain management, gynecological conditions, trauma, and even post-rehab. We focus on the reason of the sickness, then direct all the energy in the right way to help a person be healthier.”

Acupuncture is not always the best course for all conditions, and in that case there is a team of primary care doctors and specialists on-site. Aster may learn pertinent information about a patient, which she can then share with the doctors. By housing two distinctive treatment styles under one roof, Prominis patients are given a choice. Holistic care addresses emotional well-being and physical health. Among the holistic services being offered in the clinics are: trigger point injections, herbal recommendations, and nutritional counseling.

Prominis is bridging the gap from traditional medicine to alternative medicine, offering a true “complement” to standard care.

Prominis Medical Services is a group of Internists and Family Practice doctors, with Specialists, serving Brooklyn, NY. Prominis currently has 6 clinics in Brooklyn, with house call services extending to other NYC boroughs. Prominis works with local hospitals, community housing centers, lab and imaging centers, and city-funded organizations. Many diagnostic tests can be done on-site, including Lung Function Testing, Cardiac Testing, Osteoporosis Screenings, Circulation Testing, and even Sleep Studies.

Many Prominis providers hold privileges at local hospitals, including Brooklyn Hospital and New York Methodist. Specialists also come on-site, offering Cardiology, Pain Management, Urology, Nephrology and more.

Prominis was founded in 2005 by Andras Fenyves, MD and continues to grow.
