Integrated Medical Care


Dr. Adrienne Junek, MD, CFPC

Integrative Medical Doctor

Dr. Adrienne Junek completed her MD at the University of Toronto in 2013 and her Family Medicine Residency at the University of Ottawa in 2015.  She has had a longstanding interest in integrative medicine and currently offers both primary care and integrative medical care to patients at OICC.  Dr. Junek began collaborating with both naturopaths and chiropractors when she organized and participated in a longitudinal student exchange program between the medical, chiropractic, and naturopathic colleges during her medical school years in Toronto.  Currently, she is pursuing Dr. Andy Weil's 2-year fellowship in integrative medicine via distance education through Arizona Centre for Integrative Medicine.  She looks forwards to sharing the knowledge she gains through the fellowship with her patients and providing integrative medical care in a collaborative setting at OICC.

Voices of Support

“For far too long, disciplines have worked in isolation without communication and our patients have often felt caught between differing therapeutic philosophies, often to their detriment. This is a wonderful initiative. An integrative program will help provide a much needed bridge.”
