Dr. Margaret Mears trained in Vancover, BC, Canada. Dr. Mears completed her residency in Honolulu, HI and has been practicing in Arizona and Utah since 1983.
A word from Dr. Mears: “I feel the hands-on approach to healing is as important as medication and sometimes is the only avenue necessary. We must address the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional aspects of a person to truly help them. For this reason, I am very happy to be working with physician therapists whose therapy engages patient attitude and participation in their care with simple modalities such as massage, stretching, therapeutic exercise, as well as physical therapy and chiropractic treatment.”
Dr. Margaret Mears says her passion to become a health care provider began back when she was a little girl. After obtaining her medical degree in Canada, she spent many years living and working in Hawaii before settling in the Phoenix area about 25 years ago. Dr. Mears said she enjoys the wide variety of patients she treats as a neuropathy doctor at Integrated Healthcare Partners and takes great pleasure in helping her neuropathy patients.
“I work with some great chiropractors so our focus is physical medicine therapy. We help educate patients and relieve pain. Lately, we have been treating many patients with peripheral neuropathy which is rewarding and heart-warming,” she said.
“We serve a younger population in a generally underserviced area so I feel like we are really making a difference,” Dr. Mears added.
In addition to practicing medicine, or being an excellent neuropathy doctor in the Phoenix AZ area, Dr. Mears takes pleasure in writing and is the published author of ABCs of Lighthearted Living. In her spare time, she offers classes in creative writing to adults and young people. Dr. Mears also expresses her creative side by taking fused glass classes.
Dr. Mears said she likes to spend her free time with her new husband experiencing nature as they often hike and travel together. She also relishes time spent with her children and many grandchildren.
Dr. Mears’ top piece of advice is to stay fit, eat healthy, exercise faithfully and always maintain a positive attitude.
