Dr. Strauss patients – please scroll down!

Dear Patients of Dr. John Strauss,
We are sorry to hear of your predicament with Dr. Strauss closing his practice.
We realize that Dr. Strauss has listed us as one of the providers with whom you may potentially transfer your care. To expedite the process for you, we need to let you know that:
1) We are not a primary care practice. We are a consultative functional medicine practice. Read our website for information.
2) We have agreed to see patients for bio-identical hormones, low dose naltrexone and mental health issues
3) We do not accept insurance but you may be able to utilize your out-of-network benefits or deductible.
If you meet these criteria, then please complete the Request for Consultation form. We have received many requests already. Please do not call us. It will take longer for us to get back to you. Logistically it works best for us if you just completed the request for consultation form and wait for us to respond.
Thank you.
Achina Stein DO and Sally Davidson ANP


Our new address is:
250 Wampanoag Trail, Suite 305
East Providence, RI 02915

Phone, fax and email addresses will be the same. Also, come meet our new office manager, Carol!


Optimal Medical Solutions

Imagine going to a physician or a nurse who LISTENS…

Someone who:

  • takes the time to get to know you well
  • addresses more than one issue
  • takes a holistic and comprehensive approach
  • has been educated in both conventional Western medicine and many alternative methods of treatment and can integrate those two worlds
  • like a detective, has been trained to put the pieces of your health puzzle together of WHY you are suffering.
  • is open-minded and will empower you to take control of your health.

As you can imagine, this requires TIME and we insist on devoting all that it takes. We are scientists – open-minded and knowledge seeking. We use the best that conventional Western medicine has to offer (as it can be life-saving in acute situations) and the best that functional medicine has to offer for the treatment of chronic illnesses.

Our philosophy is to begin treatment with the least invasive, least toxic, least dependent and most empowering choices. We believe in the body’s natural healing abilities.

Our goal is to facilitate the healing process – to remove obstacles that impair your healing – to bring your body, mind and spirit back into balance.

Achina and Sally were interviewed by Leah Marie on The Mind Health Coach, on May 22, 2016 at 8pm which aired LIVE on Dreamvisions 7 Radio Network at 1510am WMEX Boston. Here is the recording!
