Dr Foresman

Gary E. Foresman, MD

The Integrative Medical Practice

Dr. Foresman is the only Internist on the Central Coast with extensive research training during medical school as part of the Junior Honors Medical Program. He ranked among the top in the nation on his Internal Medicine Board Exams. He has the best and most comprehensive Internal Medicine training to be found, including serving as a Clinical Professor who has trained other physicians at a University Medical Center. 

In 1994, when he moved to the Central Coast to raise his family and open a private practice, he quickly became dissatisfied with the inability of established Western medical treatments to effectively treat many of his patients. Determined to help his patients, he began investigating alternative therapies and has expanded his training in many systems of healing, not just Ayurveda, Meditation, Stress Management, and Massage but also Botanical, Ortho Molecular and Functional Medicine Systems. Middle Path Medicine was founded in 2008 as Dr. Foresman continued to expand his knowledge base. His precise, scientific mind combined with a holistic integrative perspective makes him not only the best diagnostician, but also the most skilled at therapeutically synthesizing the finest healing modalities for each individual.
