Welcome Dr. Sandy Newmark!

We are happy to announce that Dr. Sandy Newmark is joining Whole Child Wellness beginning February 2, 2009!

Dr. Newmark is a physician with 23 years of experience in pediatrics. He comes to us from Tucson where he began his career as a general pediatrician, with a special interest in behavioral problems such as ADHD and Autism. Dr. Newmark uses an integrative approach to pediatric care, combining the best of both conventional and alternative medicine to provide holistic well-child care and to treat children with autism, ADHD, chronic pain, gastrointestinal issues, allergies, asthma, and a variety of other problems. Additionally, he is board-certified in clinical hypnosis, using this and other mind-body techniques to treat chronic pain, anxiety, and related conditions.

Dr. Newmark completed his medical school and pediatric training at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. After 14 years in practice, Dr Newmark completed a 2 year residential fellowship in Integrative Medicine under the leadership of Dr. Andrew Weil through the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. He was the first graduate of this program to be in general pediatric practice in the United States. For the past 5 years he was the Director of the Center for Pediatric Integrative Medicine, a consulting practice in Tucson for children with a wide variety of medical issues. He is a faculty member of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, Dr. Andrew Weil’s clinical, teaching and training program. Dr. Newmark writes and lectures frequently on autism and ADHD, and has authored 3 chapters in academic Integrative Medicine textbooks. He is currently writing a book for parents and families on the integrative treatment of children with ADHD. It is expected to be published by late 2009.

He is married to Dr. Linda Newmark, a psychologist, with whom he has two grown children. He looks forward to joining Whole Child Wellness, living in the Bay area, and meeting each of our families personally. We are excited to have Sandy and Linda join our Whole Child Wellness family!

Dr. Newmark will be available for holistic well-child care as well as integrative consultations for chronic health concerns. Appointments are available beginning February 2, 2009, and can be scheduled now through our reception.
