Prospective Patients

I see patients from all walks of life – from the very young (a few weeks old) to the elderly. The conditions that I address are too numerous to include here. There are thousands of symptoms that people experience which cause them to be unable to function to their full capacity. Many of these symptoms are linked to the same problem gone awry, such as a hormonal imbalance, a digestive problem, a low immune system, or some other system dysfunction. Check out the Frequently Asked Questions about my practice (kids FAQ page here) and please call the office or email with any questions.

My practice focuses on, but is not limited to, the following:
  • Acute and chronic pain conditions – from the accident that just happened to the pain you’ve had for years that doesn’t respond to any other treatment.
  • Hormonal imbalances (pre & post menopause women’s health issues, thyroid and adrenal disorders, PMS)
  • Arthritic and autoimmune diseases
  • Digestive disturbances (irritable bowel, food intolerances, heartburn, etc.)
  • Low energy / fatigue (from not enough energy to chronic fatigue syndrome)
  • Sleep difficulties / disturbances (insomnia, awakening in mid-sleep, night sweats, restlessness)
  • Chemical sensitivities / food allergies
  • Immune system dysfunctions – frequent colds & infections, chronic immune suppression issues
  • Children, with a special understanding of those with developmental delays and Autism Spectrum Challenges
  • Athletes, from the beginner to the elite; increasing performance, overcoming injuries (chronic and acute), preventing injuries, and recovering faster

By clicking on the below links you can read my Office Policies and Procedures (includes appointment fees), as well as the New Patient Forms and HIPPA NPP form.

    I have been following your advice to drink lemon juice in water to stop a gallbladder attack. It works–thank you so much!!!!! I have been drinking 2-3 glasses of lemon water every day for over a week now. I have also been diagnosed with reflux. The reflux has been under control but since drinking the lemon water some of the symptoms are returning. What should I do? Maybe stop drinking the lemon juice in water daily and just use when gall bladder acting up?
    Thanks so much for answering!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi, I found your name on the Autism Today list of DAN doctors, but I do not see your DAN info listed on the site. Are you a certified DAN doctor? Thank you!

    • No I am not “certified” but I work with a lot of kids in the Autism Spectrum. As you may know, the word “DAN” can no longer be used due to it’s association with DAN! – Divers Alert Network.

  4. Jen permalink

    OK, thank you. I did not know that about DAN. Do you use integrative medicine with these patients, or Chinese medicine, or a combination?

    • Check out the KIDS tab especially including the Frequently Asked Questions on there. I primarily use dietary and nutritional therapies with some neuro rehab if indicated.

    I am very interested in your practice but I live in Charlotte. Do you have any recommendations for a Doctor to see here in the Charlotte area for hip/piriformis/sciatic issues that have been severe and ongoing despite years of various treatments?


    • Sorry I don’t. I suggest you call my office and make the drive 2 hrs north; or at least get on my wait-list as a place-holder.

    I was wondering on payment do you take BCBSNC

    • No, we give you forms to submit to them to obtain reimbursement to the extent of your policy.

    Please please help me, I am so desperate for some sort of help or advice or support, this conditions is taking over my life and destroying me and my relationships with the people i love.
    I am completely at the end of my tether, I am not a stupid person and I read and read and have been following more or less a low fodmap diet however find myself dropping into some bad moods and mental states that can last for days and almost always improve with some form of sugar, usually golden syrup.
    Things get worse and worse as I get older and it destroying my life. Food has become my enemy and I am seriously struggling emotionally as well as physically.
    Please please help me, help me to help myself, help me to help my doctor to help me.
    I’m not kidding when I tell you, I am desperate, this week has been devastating to me and my life.
    With much respect and a heart full of hope that you will or can help me in ANY way

    Great article on ketones and performance. I recently can attest to the benefits of ketones. I have recently found a ketone suppliment and take it once a day. While it’s still early… I have lost 8 lbs in two days. My clarity is amazing. I look forward to further articles.

    Hi- my daughter 19 years old was recently diagnosed with a stress fracture of her foot and the doctor put a cast on her last Thursday. She is still experiencing excruciating pain, is that normal? after how many weeks should she start to notice some relief? She is away at a military college so she does not have the luxury to rest and stay off of it 100%, still going up and down stairs with crutches.

    Okay, so I’m in trouble. I will try to be brief and summarize.

    I saw your video on Plantar Fascist.
    In January, I started working as a cashier and I stand all day.
    I have notice some pain in my heals, but not too debilitating that a few Advils wont relieve for the day.
    Problem –
    I’ve been out sick with Shingles for 10 days now. My feet are loving the barefoot lifestyle. But! All of a sudden my heals started hurting so bad the last 2 days, when I’ve done nothing to aggravate them.
    I found out when I researched why, that due to my illness, I was prescribed an antibiotic known to cause Tendonitis (as a side effect).
    Which I am going to discuss with my doc tomorrow.
    My problem is I have to return to work in 3 days. I have been studying shoes for plantar fasciitis, which brought me to your site. I was ready to order $130 pair of Kuru shoes for work. I’ve been wearing a $20 pair of restaurant shoes, because I needed a pair of black leather shoes.
    Sorry – I tried to be brief. Please what do you recommend for shoes for me? – thank you.

    Hey there, Dr. Gangemi.

    I have tried to find the answer to the question I am about to ask you, but I could not find it anywhere on both your websites. Excuse me if you have already covered it.

    Do you know how long we can stand on our feet without causing health issues? Like, say, varicose veins and/or kick starting inflammation from too much stress from being on the feet too long.

    Is it feasible to stand during an eight-hour workday, with a couple of breaks without long-term consequences???

    I do not wear the traditional shoes when I am out and about, and I go barefoot when at home.

    Thanks, doc!

    Hi, Dr. Gangemi,
    Do you know of a way to find someone schooled in gallbladder flushes who could show someone how to do a gallbladder flush/cleanse at home, and stay with the person doing it for the first time– so they would not be alone if something happened? Or, do you know of a place you can go that does these flushes? I mean inside the U.S., as I do not have money to travel outside! I would want someone who knew what was a normal cleanse reaction and what wasn’t, who knew tips to relieve pain or help the procedure along, like massage and where to massage, etc. I spoke with an experienced health consultant last year who works elsewhere in the U.S., and he said his dream was to create a “gallbladder clinic” that would give flushes, etc. but he doesn’t have the money yet. Thanks!

    I read that you are not a big fan of prolotherapy. What alternatives exist to both prolo and surgery for a torn hip labrum? An MRI confirmed the tare.


    • Yes I am not especially since a friend of mine recently developed excruciating pain after a treatment; supposedly it is not that uncommon. It’s thought that around 60% of labrum tears are asymptomatic. Either way though, look for a doc or therapist who can help you with the structure around your hip and leg.
