Synergy Health Associates
At Synergy Health Associates, we take the time to truly understand our patients’ needs through communication and professional examinations. We assess each patient and develop a personalized treatment plan for the patient’s specific needs. Since no patient is exactly alike, there is not always a one-size-fits-all treatment. In fact, many patients who see a regular doctor find that they still experience symptoms after the treatment.
Thus, we strive to customize the treatment plan to help patients return to a healthy lifestyle free of the pain that consumes them on a regular basis. We can also schedule follow-up appointments if necessary, to ensure that the symptoms are not returning. The first step to healing is to call and schedule an appointment.
Our team takes the time to establish a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere so the patient can relax and focus on healing.
We will listen to a patient’s concerns and work to establish a treatment plan that meets the patient’s needs. Since each patient is unique, there is always a possibility that we will need to change the treatment during or after the process.
Our team will guide the patient through the treatment and answer any questions the patient has. Our team has the expertise and tools necessary to provide professional treatment for a variety of conditions.Learn More
We provide a variety of services that range from nutrition and weight loss treatment to back pain care and anti-aging treatment. People may not realize just how much one’s diet and eating habits can negatively impact the body.
Thus, as a metabolic detoxification center, we offer Directional Non-Force Technique® treatments, Lymph-Biologics™, and natural cleansing to help patients get back on track for a healthy lifestyle.
We also provide holistic medicine, alternative medicine, functional medicine, chronic back pain treatment, sciatica treatment, foot pain treatment, shoulder pain treatment, lymphatic drainage massage and pinched nerve treatment. We help patients with non-surgical back pain treatment instead of relying solely on surgical methods.Learn More
We will need new patients to fill out a “New Patient Information Form” that covers a patient’s medical history, current condition, insurance information, allergies, and any other important facts we need to know about.
Patients can fill out the form at home by printing it off our website to speed up the appointment process. Once we have all of that information, we will conduct an examination during the initial consultation. We will use all of this information to customize the treatment plan for the patient’s condition.
More importantly, we will be an available source of support if the patient feels any changes or recurrences of the symptoms in the future.Learn More
About Synergy Health Associates
We understand how difficult it can be when the treatment a general doctor recommends does not seem to be effective.
Dr. Loretta Friedman
I am Dr. Loretta T. Friedman, but my patients call me Dr. Loretta. I’ve been in clinical practice for over 25 years, previously as an operating room nurse, specializing in cardiothoracic, open heart, vascular and kidney transplants out at UCSF San Francisco. Additionally, former faculty at NYU School of Dentistry for Oral Facial Pain, TMJD.
In June of 1994, I came back to New York to open up my Chiropractic practice, specializing as a Directional Non-Force Technique® practitioner, clinical nutritionist, and as an expert in woman’s health. I am one of two Directional Non-Force Technique® Chiropractors in all of New York State, so patients come from all over for relief of pain, muscular-skeletal swelling and inflammation problems, and disc issues. As a woman’s health expert, I harness proprietary protocols for Anti-Aging, Metabolic Detoxification, and Lymph-Biologics™, a unique form of lymphatic drainage.
In 1996 I created and developed The MiracleBack™ pillow, a patented technology product to relieve lower back pain and disc compression. Later I realized that traditional diagnostic methods were not sophisticated or sensitive enough to provide thorough clinical details, so from years of working with a diverse demographic of patients, I recognized that I needed a new and effective diagnostic methodology within my practice.
Eventually, I discovered a technology that could deliver the necessary information for a more thorough patient diagnosis and termed this cell test the Aging Analysis. Now I was finally able to help patients feel and look as good as they can with customized programs with diet, supplements, exercise, and lifestyle changes.
With a diversity of Nutritional degrees, a Masters in nutrition, 2 Diplomas in nutrition, and multiple certifications I have been helping women and men with their nutritional insufficiencies for years. I have also developed my own proprietary blends of supplements.
I utilize multiple modalities to ensure optimal patient outcomes.
Most importantly I LISTEN to my patients even if what they are trying to communicate to me doesn’t add up with what I know to be clinically sound.
I’m published in Glamour Magazine, mentioned in New York Magazine, and have been on affiliate ABC TV stations. Additionally, I work very closely with Jean-Georges Vongerichten Management Team, and I also consulted with the Managing Partner of PwC.
