By giving the body what it needs and removing what doesn’t belong, we can often avoid the disruptive effect of strong medications that target symptoms. By restoring balance, we make Mother Nature our partner on the path to wellness.
— Michael Compain MD

A story of comic suspense with a one-of-a-kind hero. Conrad Stutz is medical researcher who suffers from severe paranoia. 

Michael Compain, M.D. is an experienced practitioner of the style of integrative medicine performed at Bock Integrative Medicine. Well trained and board-certified (Columbia, NYU, Montefiore Medical Center), Dr. Compain became dissatisfied with the limitations of conventional medicine and embarked on a journey of self education and exploration which eventually brought him in 1999 to Rhinebeck, New York. Since that time he has worked side-by-side with Dr. Bock, caring for individuals with complex needs. They have collaborated not only on patient care, but on writing for textbooks for physicians.

Dr. Compain has been on the faculty at NYU Medical Center for many years, during which time he has taught residents and medical students. He is a member of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine and has years of experience in the fields of environmental sensitivity and toxicity. He has applied this expertise to reveal the underlying causes of many complex medical problems in both children and adults. He has also become experienced in a variety of cutting edge techniques for allergy desensitization.

Over the years Dr. Compain has treated children with neurologic disorders such as autism and ADHD, helping individuals from across the country and around the world. In older individuals he works to treat and prevent inflammatory and degenerative conditions-the diseases of aging. He always begins with an extensive medical history and laboratory evaluation, and then works comprehensively to restore balance, using non-drug therapies whenever possible.

Dr. Compain strives to meet the individual needs of the whole person, and works at all times with compassion and respect.
