Here is a brief description of Dr. Quincy’s healing background and philosophy, in her own words:
Since resettling in Sonoma County in 1986, I initially practiced with my husband, Dr. Joel Alter, (now retired). During those years, our office provided a transitional professional home for many of our best local practitioners, when they first came to the area. I’m a specialist in Internal Medicine, and my practice focuses on the medical evaluation and treatment of difficult health problems ranging from hormone issues and menopause to fibromyalgia – it also includes inflammatory and toxic challenges, and cancer. In treating patients with cancer, I bring together the talents of multiple experienced practitioners of Acupuncture, Chinese medicine, nutrition, body work and osteopathy to the problem. The creation of a new relationship between clinician and client includes a transfer of information, and the creation of a sacred space between them, where honesty, and healing can happen.
