George Papanicolaou, DO

George Papanicolaou, DO, is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is Board Certified in Family Medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital, Abington, Pennsylvania. He is also an Institute for Functional Medicine Practitioner (IFMCP) having finished his certification earlier this spring. Upon graduation from his residency he joined the Indian Health Service. He worked on the Navajo reservation for 4 years at the Chinle Comprehensive Medical Facility where he served as the Outpatient Department Coordinator.  In 2000, he founded Cornerstone Family Practice in Rowley (MA). He practiced with a philosophy centered on personal relationship and treating the whole person, not just not the disease. He called that philosophy “Whole Life Wellness”. Over time as the healthcare system made it harder for patients to receive this kind of personal care Dr. Papanicolaou decided a change was needed. He began training in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine. In 2015, he established Cornerstone Personal Health – a practice dedicated entirely to Functional Medicine. In August 2017, Dr. Hyman invited Dr. Papanicolaou to join The UltraWellness Center.

Dr. Papanicolaou lectures on a variety topics including Functional Nutrition/Food as Medicine, the gut-brain connection, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, functional fitness and weight control.

Your First appointment with Dr. Papanicolaou will be done in person at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Before your trip to the clinic, a Nurse will work with you to gather information about your health, family history and will build an in depth health profile to share with Dr. Papanicolaou.

During your initial appointment, Dr. Papanicolaou will listen to you tell the story of your health.  He will create a timeline of your health history, link symptoms to systems and work to get to the root cause of your condition(s).  From there he will work with you to create a comprehensive plan.

Your first follow up with Dr Papanicolaou will be a 50 minute appointment that can be done by phone or in person.

Follow ups after that will be either 25 minutes or 50 minutes depending on labs and where you are at on your health journey.
