Dr. Sherri Tenpenny and her staff of healing and wellness experts are welcoming patients at their new Middleburg Heights address. The Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center, formerly Osteomed II, is now located at 7380 Engle Road, just South of Bagley Road, in a newly constructed commercial complex.
“We are growing,” said Dr. Tenpenny, “and a growing business isn’t particularly common in Northeast Ohio these days.”
The Center’s offices and treatment rooms are well planned and decorated with the patient in mind. Everything from the paint colors to the full-wall, Zen-like water feature in the waiting room is designed to make the patients feel peaceful and relaxed.
“We treat the person as a whole,” said Dr. Tenpenny, “and we aspire to accomplish good things. We don’t want to treat patients only after they present with symptoms. We want to find and eliminate potential problems before they develop into symptoms or disease.”
True preventative medicine is practiced daily at the Center, with special attention in areas such as allergy elimination (SRT) and pain repair. There is a significant concentration on women’s health. Breast health is a particular concern. The Center offers Digital Infrared Scanning, otherwise known as breast thermography, as a first-order, early detection tool. This method is approved by the Food and Drug Administration and has been available since 1982, though few women have any knowledge of the procedure. It is painless, simple, non-invasive, and uses no radiation.
“Infrared imaging, if used routinely, could change the course of breast cancer,” said Dr. Tenpenny. “It can detect changes in the breast five to seven years earlier than conventional methods. Think of it as you would annual blood tests. Discovering very high cholesterol would make you take measures to correct it, such as changing your diet, exercising, taking supplements and perhaps medication. By addressing it now, you hope to avoid serious heart disease later. Similarly, if we find changes in the breast early enough, we can create an individual treatment plan, including changes in diet, exercise, and supplements, to lower the risk of developing breast cancer in the future.”
Dr. Tenpenny is the founder of the Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center and has been practicing integrative medicine in the Cleveland area since 1996. She is a graduate of the University of Toledo and the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, and is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Dr. Tenpenny is internationally known as an expert in the problems associated with vaccines.
