In his family practice, Dr. Gabriel Archdeacon treats patients of all ages, suffering from all types of conditions.  Philosophically he believes that it is best to treat individuals from a young age and establish a pattern of health early in life.  For this reason he specializes in Pediatrics.  Additionally, Gabriel understands that the health of a child is directly related to the health of the parents at the time of conception and throughout pregnancy.  Dr. Archdeacon enjoys helping young people of reproductive age optimize their health in preparation for having children in the future.

 

Dr. Gabriel Archdeacon practices primary care medicine utilizing a holistic approach.  Symptoms are not themselves illness, but the signs of illness.  Suppression of these symptoms (either with natural remedies or pharmaceutical medications) will lead to recurrence, or the development of a more serious condition.  Instead, Dr. Archdeacon’s approach is to offer relief from symptoms when necessary through palliative treatments while determining and treating the underlying cause.

 

Gabriel practices a form of Martial Arts called Qi Gong.  He is also an outdoors enthusiast, naturalist, and forager of wild edibles.
