Why Placeres Integrative Medicine

Integrative Approach

Our approach is comprehensive. When you work with our Naturopathic Physicians, we use the latest diagnostic testing methods alongside conventional labs, clinical observation, herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, your personal history, and your current lifestyle factors to get an accurate picture of what’s contributing to your state of health. This allows us to individualize integrative treatment plans just for you that complement your conventional treatment.

Ample Time

As a new Naturopathic patient, you can expect 60-75 minutes of uninterrupted, personal time with your doctor to go over your medical history, gain an understanding of your current health concerns, and create complementary and alternative lifestyle protocols that are realistic in helping you attain your health goals.

HealthCare Team

An effective health care model requires a team. We partner with you as the co-author of your health whether you come for Naturopathic care, Acupuncture or integrative women's health. We make it easy for our patients to communicate with our clinicians because health is easier to attain with the right support. We work with your current doctors to complement your treatments and provide coaching along the way to remove obstacles and barriers to a healthy lifestyle.

Learn About Our Newest Member


Megan Monteiro



I am Megan and I am a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. I have over eight years of experiencing working in the women’s health specialty. I enjoy working on health education and overall wellness services for women while integrating both natural and pharmacologic remedies.

I started my career as a Nurse Practitioner in the United States Air Force. I served while providing comprehensive obstetric and gynecological care of women at Eglin Air Force Base, in the 96th Medical Group. This was ranked “Hospital of the Year” in 2016 and 2017 while I was a member.

Today I work as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and also work as a clinical nurse for the New York Air National Guard. For the ANG I am a clinical nurse and am trained in emergency response in instances of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive disasters. I was an asset of the 105th Medical Group, Air Lift Wing who was most recently awarded the Meritorious Unit Award.

When I am not working, I am spending time with my two boys. We often like to be involved in outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, and cycling. I look forward to working with you and I look forward to being a vital member of your healthcare team.
