If you love yourself and your family, I highly recommend you go to Merge Medical. I've been going with Dr. Lovegrove for almost a year now. He has helped me so much and treated me with natural supplements. Don't wait to start a disease when you can prevent it and live a healthy life. Do it for you and your family.
As a holistic health practitioner it is of the utmost importance to me to have high quality integrative and personalized holistic health and wellness care which is exactly what I and my husband have at Merge Medical Center.
My experience with this highly skilled and caring team of doctors, nurses, and assistants has been and continues to be outstanding. I particularly appreciated the fast, effective and natural approach to stop a flare up of colitis and Crohn's with zero side effects. Balancing hormones and reaching high vitamin levels improved my quality of life in just a few weeks. I highly recommend this place.
I have been working with Merge Medical for several months now and have found my P.A. extremely responsive and knowledgeable. Our phone conferences have not been rushed; she has listened to and thoroughly answered all of my questions, as well as informed me of test results and her recommendations for treatment. Whenever I have concerns or want to give her feedback on my progress, she is always available. I HIGHLY recommend Merge Medical, especially if you have not been able to have your medical issue(s) resolved with other practices.
The staff at Merge Medical is very good. They are always kind, courteous and helpful. Dr. Lovegrove has been a God sent to me. He’s very knowledgeable and has been a tremendous help for me. He treats me with natural solutions first and that is what I was looking for. I don’t like taking a lot of drugs. If you are looking for a doctor that is personable and caring you’ll be in the right place at Merge Medical.
I am a new patient to Merge Medical Center and love their approach to healthcare. They’ve spent time to build a patient-provider rapport and look at my state of health as the complex interrelated systems that it is. This will allow us to get to the root of the problem and not just address the symptoms that are currently present. If you’re paying for skilled care, you should get skilled care! Fortunately, Merge Medical provides that! I honestly feel that the practitioners with whom I’ve worked are just as invested in my health as I am myself and that is a very satisfying feeling that can not be obtained everywhere in healthcare today.
Merge Medical combines traditional and holistic medicine in an amazing way. They helped me by evaluating my whole body, not just the complaint I went in with. They were able to assist me in lowering my cholesterol, increasing my energy, and helping me lose weight.
Dr Lovegrove performed prolotherapy injections on my back and foot and it has changed my life. I was in so much pain. But now I am telling all my friends in chronic pain to go to him. I tried steroids shots, PT and surgery and only temporary relief. Now I have been pain free for 3 months and loving life again.
Dr. Lovegrove spent a lot of time talking with me and explaining things and also, asking questions so he could understand my health and my issues. He did Prolo therapy on my back and my bunion...its only been 3 weeks and I am already feeling relief from all my back pain. The bunion is also much better. I have had Prolo before and Dr. Lovegrove is excellent... I plan on going back in 3 weeks for another round. Prolo is amazing and so is Dr. Lovegrove. Before you have surgery, check him out first. Of course, he does more then Prolo but that is what I saw him for.
I have been a patient of Merge Medical for over 5 years for various conditions. The staff is wonderful and Dr. Lovegrove is always available and I always get a response to my requests immediately. I feel fortunate to have found this practice.
My boyfriend recommended Dr. Lovegrove because he knew I wasn’t happy with my ob/gyn as my hormone guide. Also, GI troubles brought me in as I started having too much gas and constipation. Doctors I’ve been to in the past from my generation tend to be too paternalistic and arrogant. LHS is different from other clinics because of Dr. L’s humility and his broad knowledge of new technology. I have now gone from estrogen dominant to fairly balanced and no longer are vitamin D or DHEA deficient. Balancing hormones are tricky, but Dr. L is devoted to keep trying until solutions are found. I believe some of this played a part in my own body healing itself of some crystallizations in one breast. I delayed a repeat mammogram until I felt I had time to heal on my own with the altered hormones from Dr. Lovegrove. End result: My last mammogram was normal. Lately, the Zypan that he put me on, may be in conjunction with the best probiotics seem to have given me the digestion of a 40 year old not a 60 year old.
I would recommend Merge Medical Center to everyone. The process works! I never felt so loved and cared for by a doctor before-not just Dr. Lovegrove but the entire staff. Dr. Lovegrove spends an hour with you, addresses all your concerns/priorities. He addresses all aspects of your life-mind, body and spirit. I have been fever free for 4 months (a miracle) and have dropped almost 50 pounds! My liver enzymes have dropped and I just feel so much better!
I wanted a different approach so I searched on the internet and found Lovegrove. While my treatment is not complete, I have been noticing improvement in the short time I’ve been there.
My little guy has already gained over 1.5 lbs since we started seeing Dr. Lovegrove. He no longer wakes up at night screaming in pain and seems to be so much more content. Thank you so much for getting his life back on track!
..so more people should get the benefit of what I like to call “real alternative medicine”(from Dr. Lovegrove). Even though I came to Dr. Lovegrove for a specific reason, “burning mouth syndrome”, you have helped me in so many other ways. Even though I just turned 70 last week, I feel 20 years younger than I did when I was 50. You have been very supportive of me, and I really appreciate that you “listen to what I have to say about what is going on with my body” . I am so happy I was able to refer my daughter-in-law to you, I told her she is in for a big life change.
Thank you again for all your help,
Over the past 6 months, I have been under the most stress in life in 20 years. Fortunately, I started with Dr. Lovegrove right before this extra stress happened. I feel that I would not have been able to meet the demands both at work and with my family if I had not been on Dr. Lovegrove’s suggested regimen. Now I have the energy and stamina to sustain me through this time and beyond.
Dr. Lovegrove saved my elbow with Prolotherapy
For the last year and a half I have suffered from pain in my right elbow. During numerous visits to various doctor’s offices the diagnoses ranged from “forearm sprain” to the much dreaded “tennis elbow.” I tried rest, ice, heat, medications, creams, massages, elbow braces, soaks, ultrasound, months of physical therapy strengthening exercises, all to no avail: the pain persisted. One of the physicians I saw even told me “there is nothing else I can do for you; you will just have to learn to live with the pain.” I refused to believe that!
Stubborn as I am I inquired about other treatments and Prolotherapy was brought to my attention. I had never heard about this so I spent several weeks researching it. I learned that it is a series of injections of a dextrose solution applied to the source(s) of the pain. The solution acts as an irritant and promotes an inflammatory reaction by the body to heal hard-to-mend areas. Since ligaments and tendons receive poor blood supply the body sometimes needs a little kick, so to say, to repair injuries in certain areas. I learned that not many physicians know of nor perform this technique but was fortunate to find Dr. Patrick Lovegrove right here in Mt Pleasant.
From the moment I met and talked with Dr. Lovegrove, I knew I was in the right place. He is knowledgeable, patient, kind, and was as determined as I was to heal this stubborn injury to my elbow. He took the time to talk to me about the pain and carefully examine the exact origin areas. After it was established where the pain originated, by palpating all areas around my elbow, Dr Lovegrove injected the dextrose solution. It was painful but I was made to feel comfortable and Dr Lovegrove explained exactly what to expect during healing. It took several visits and sets of injections to get to all the sources of pain, one of them being deep in the annular ligament, but in the end, I am finally pain free after over a year and a half!
Dr. Lovegrove also recommended supplements, stretches and massage techniques to maintain the healing process of the elbow – new cartilage continues to grow and strengthen for 6 months. With these techniques, I am able to use my elbow, and enjoy my life, without continuing pain.
Prolotherapy works. It worked for me to heal my elbow. I have learned that there are a number of conditions that it can help, such as back pain, TMJ, misdiagnosed carpal tunnel syndrome, and even migraines to name a few. This community is fortunate to have a physician knowledgeable in the technique, Dr. Patrick Lovegrove, right here in Mt Pleasant. I am eternally grateful to him for not giving up and saving my elbow.
Finally, and what I find most appealing about Dr. Lovegrove’s approach, is the art of helping the body to heal itself. Our bodies are incredible, but we have forgotten this in this hectic world of fast food, fast fixes, and fast lives. When you come to Lovegrove Health Solutions, you will not just get a quick fix to an ailment, you will receive a personalized plan to promote holistic healing so that you will not need any quick fixes in the future. To me, this is invaluable! What about you?
‘Real Warrior’ Finds Path to Physical, Emotional Healing A prolotherapy success story mentioning how Dr. Lovegrove’s prolotherapy helped Stacy Pearsall, who appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show about “Women in combat”
1. What brought you in to see Dr. Lovegrove? We were working together in the same clinic as colleagues in the Air Force when he introduced Holistic Medicine to my wife and me.
2. What did he do differently? How are his services different from other Doctors? Essentially he manages well being as opposed to illness. His approach certainly has a preventive dimension but he takes it a bit further with optimizing hormonal levels and restoring vitality. His focus is bio-psycho-social and spiritual … He doesn’t leave a stone unturned.
3. How were you helped with Dr. Lovegrove’s services? Well, I lost over 50 lbs, decreased body/fat content, my vitality/energy increased, and I look forward to further adult maturation.
4. What/How do you feel differently now? I feel alert, energetic, and strong. All aspects of our marriage have certainly benefited and I don’t think I need to give you and further details. 5. Would you recommend Dr. Lovegrove to a family member or friend? Why or Why not? I have already recommended his services to a number of friends and relatives with hope that they follow through … This is one of the best investments we have made in our lives and we hope to continue until we move on where only God knows where.
What brought me in to see Dr. Lovegrove?
I was unusually tired for my age (48), had gained 20 lb since turning 40 despite my efforts to eat healthy and exercise and just overall felt pretty blah without any tangible reason. I initially talked with my Gynecologist provider who basically offered me anti-depressants, sleep aid and traditional HRT. I was also instructed to work out more and reduce my caloric intake to 1200 cal/day. I knew I couldn’t eat less than I already did especially with all the food cravings I had. I also knew that I couldn’t exercise anymore because I just didn’t have the energy. I had resorted to working out and then having to take a nap.
What was different about Dr. Lovegrove?:
He tried to get to the root of my symptoms instead of offering me a pill (each with its own side effects)for each one of them. He also gave me the information I needed to do my part to help myself. He’s actually the first Dr in my life that I’ve really trusted. I don’t have to second guess him and make sure he’s thinking of everything. He’s the first dr. I’ve ever had who actually is capable of taking care of my health care needs. He shares all of his treatment rationales and wants my input. I feel so much more comfortable that he uses medications as a last resort.
How are things different now?:
WOW! I’ve gone from a nap a day to running 5K. I can work out with women 20 years younger than me and still keep up. I LOVE exercise and work out now 5 days/week doing activities I never could have done before. I’ve lost that 20 lb I gained when I hit the big 4-0 and am back into a size 4. I sleep like a baby every single night. My diet has come to SO incredibly far. I now eat to feed my cells and not to feed my belly. My diet is about 80% vegetarian. I think long and hard about taking any medication even if it’s over the counter. My sex drive has quadrupled. Even after 18 years together, my husband and I are going stronger than ever…
I feel healthier and stronger than I ever have and will turn 49 this month.
Many, Many Thanks. I got my life back!!!
