In brief: How do they practice

Physicians are trained utilizing evidence based medicine in which outcomes are documented and proven.
We are trained with a strong understanding of the pathology and physiology of disease and the human body from a scientific perspective in caring for the whole patient. We are looking at reproducible outcomes with a strong understanding of how and why. If herbalists can do this, they are welcome.
