“I view my patients as whole human beings with physical, mental, spiritual, and community health. I feel true health is not just the absence of disease but a state of unbounded vitality and energy, and my goal is to help every patient achieve true health. I believe that Integrative Medicine is the best way to do this. By using a combination of Holistic Family Medicine, Functional Medicine, and conventional, ‘Western’ medicine, we offer a wider variety of treatment options than a typical medical clinic. One of my most favorite things to do as a doctor is real preventative medicine. My typical check-ups and well child checks take between sixty and ninety minutes. By spending so much time with my patients I am able to truly get to know every aspect of their lives, and come up with an approach that not only prevents them from developing the illnesses they are at risk for, but helps them become the healthiest, happiest people they can be.”
Besides offering Holistic Family Medicine, Dr. McCloy specializes in Intravenous Vitamin Therapies, Heavy Metal Detoxification, Functional and Nutritional Medicine, and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement. He also uses Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine in his treatment approaches. He sees all ages of patients, from newborns to geriatrics. By restoring balance to his patients, he lets their bodies, minds, and spirits heal themselves. Instead of using medicines to cover up symptoms, Dr. McCloy hunts for the roots of an illness. After treating these root causes his patients often find they can stop taking their pharmaceutical medications.
In addition to enjoying his work, Sean McCloy loves going on outdoor adventures, preparing gourmet vegetarian feasts, making music with his friends, playing ultimate frisbee, furniture building, and walking around Portland with his wife Gretchen, their sons Forrest and Duncan and his chocolate lab, Hershey.
