Dr. Palevsky provides patients and their families with personalized, comprehensive consultations to address their children’s wellness, and acute and chronic illnesses. He offers consultations and educational programs to families and practitioners in the areas of preventive and holistic health; childhood development; lifestyle changes; nutrition for adults, infants and children; safe, alternative treatments for common and difficult to treat acute and chronic pediatric and adult conditions; vaccination controversies; mindful parenting; and rethinking the medical paradigm.

In addition to providing wellness care and pediatric check-ups for families looking for a holistic pediatrician, Dr. Palevsky integrates holistic and conventional medicines for children and families who experience such conditions as ADD/ADHD, autism, asthma, eczema, allergies, inflammatory bowel disease, ear infections, chronic congestion, diabetes, obesity, learning disabilities, developmental delays, complex neurological conditions, side effects of chronic medication use and perceived vaccination damage.

Case by case he incorporates and counsels about the benefits of preventive medicine, nutrition, lifestyle changes, acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, chiropractic, osteopathy, cranial-sacral therapy, environmental medicine, homeopathy, essential oils and natural healing modalities such as aromatherapy, yoga, Reiki, meditation, reflexology and mindfulness. For families who are interested in a broader medical approach to their children's health and wellness, Dr. Palevsky also offers educational consultations. In these consultations, he discusses the fundamental principles of how children grow and mature and how we can nurture and support these processes without damaging their systems with suppressive policies and therapies. In all his consultations, Dr. Palevsky will address all of your specific questions and concerns.

Dr. Palevsky values the role(s) illness may play in children's lives and supports the use of safe, non-suppressive treatments to assist them in their healing. He is a strong advocate for the education and empowerment of families. Dr. Palevsky strives to help parents access their knowledge and strengthen their confidences through their own experiences and intuition, thus supporting the idea that parents are the primary care providers for their children. Parents deserve to have access to a healing model of health care that reduces the use of ineffective and harmful drug treatments, and empowers them to build healthy, vibrant bodies and spirits in themselves and in their children.

Through holistic medicine, Dr. Palevsky will investigate all aspects of children’s lives, in body, mind and/or spirit, to help them gain greater optimal health within the context of their specific family dynamics. To read more, please click here.

What you can expect at your first appointment:


Children will be examined and treatment recommendations will be made to improve their conditions. Initial treatments may include the use of nutrition, supplements, essential oils/ aromatherapy, herbs, baths, homeopathy, western medicine, referral to other practitioners or simply close observation and follow-up. Dr. Palevsky seeks to use remedies that ease your children’s symptoms, making them and you more comfortable, without suppressing the physiology in their bodies that’s helping them to heal. Clinical follow-up will also be provided.


Dr. Palevsky will help empower you to raise healthy children and safely treat your children's chronic conditions. You will learn about the options you have for healing your children and keeping them healthy. Dr. Palevsky will review your concerns, along with your children's birth, nutrition and medical histories, and important physical findings. A holistic assessment and overview of family and child health will be made. You will hear about conventional and holistic approaches to your children's conditions and receive Western and alternative treatment recommendations.

Dietary and lifestyle modifications will also be a focus to help you re-establish a healing environment and better nourish your children.
