The IWG Approach: A different perspective

Our approach is setting the standard for how healthcare is being done by creating an integrative look at the body instead of assuming that our body systems are working independently. In addition, we strive to create personalized health plans by taking the subjectivity out of medicine. We also take the trial and error out of the healing process with our unique style of testing.


"how on earth did you create all of this?"

For as long as they can remember, Dr. Nick and Dr. Nicole have been voraciously curious about human potential and the human body. They wanted to know, what exactly is it that makes people sick and tired? Why do some people struggle with their health and while others find a way to thrive, often despite the having similar genetics, family history, or other challenging circumstances?

They were also passionate about a multitude of seemingly unconnected things: learning, psychology, biology, entrepreneurship, mindset, neurology, physiology, food, cooking, nutrition, medicine, fitness, teaching, and energy, and physics, just to name a few.

After several failed attempts at working in other offices and a lot of angst about providing one-dimensional healthcare, they realized that their unusual combination of interests and skills as a strength, not a liability.

They gave up the security of working for other doctors only 8 months out of school. Dr. Nick and Dr. Nicole moved across the country from Seattle to New Jersey, began bartending, valeting cars, and doing house calls while slowly building a new platform for healthcare, Integrative Wellness Group, from the ground up.

At IWG, we believe that there is a cause for every effect which means there is an answer to your array of symptoms. Most importantly, there is a solution to your cause which will allow you to heal and have the knowledge to prevent it from arising in the future.

Fundamentally, we believe that no matter what your health challenges are, you have the power to be the key player in your health destiny, by doing so, you’ll change your life.

This philosophy, to make a difference in the world you must evolve with the times have lead to some of Integrative Wellness Group’s groundbreaking milestones. For instance: Every void that was found in a patient’s health journey led to continued learning which resulted in the cutting-edge array of treatment modalities at IWG. Through the advancements at IWG, functional medicine, physical medicine, brain health, detoxification and other programs offered- IWG is in this to make a difference.


No more Trial + Error

Almost 10 years ago, our doctors became frustrated with the limitations of conventional testing. It became evident, that blood work was just a snapshot in the moment and often missed chronic conditions. In addition, the tests did not reveal the biodiversity of each person which resulted in cookie-cutter protocols for so-called similar conditions. Our doctors were craving specificity and decided to explore advanced medical technologies. This transformed the treatment protocols and allowed for faster and more effective healing.

Personalizing medicine

Beyond physicians, we classify ourselves detectives.
Our technologies go beyond what is revealed in conventional testing, looking to the deepest layers of the body including the cells and the DNA. With precision and accuracy, we can uncover what common testing misses within a fraction of the time.

Moving Past the Guesswork

Despite the vast amount of scientific discoveries and technological advances accumulated over the past century, conventional medicine still roots the basis of treatment in diagnosis without paying attention to the cause(s) of dysfunction.  We aim to decipher the root cause.

It is not about what you do, but how you do it

We know your symptoms. We can determine a diagnosis. But can we accurately, without guessing, know the actual source of why you have these symptoms and diagnosis? The answer is yes.  Our advanced medical technology allows us to find the root cause with confidence.

Personalized Medicine

Relying on a precise and rigorous protocol that follows a comprehensive medical decision tree, we’re able to devise highly detailed and specific protocols, each one being individual to the patient. Our testing provides a conclusive answer to accurately discerning, out of all supplements, herbs, and treatment options available, the best, properly prioritized, optimally timed, and safest treatment for any given patient.
