Martin P. Albert, M.D.

Practicing integrative medicine is the fulfillment of my career, which has included family practice, community medicine, emergency care, and teaching medical students at UVA and the Medical College of Virginia. Over the past 10 years, I have intensively studied nutritional, herbal, functional, and mind-body approaches to health. I am board certified in Holistic Medicine by the American College of Holistic Medicine, and in Family Practice by the American Board of Family Medicine, and certified by the Academy of Guided Imagery. After medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, I trained at San Francisco General Hospital and in the US Public Health Service. I co-founded the Charlottesville Wellness Center Family Practice, where I practiced for 20 years. I am on the Visiting Staff of Martha Jefferson Hospital.
