What made you choose the Coachella Valley?  
The opportunity to work at the Eisenhower Wellness Institute and be able to practice a holistic and wellness approach to health care.

Why did you choose to practice Integrative Medicine?
I was a chiropractor before attending medical school. Because of that experience, I realized the importance of combining a holistic and natural approach with traditional medicine to effectively treat difficult diseases.

What trends in Integrative Health Care do you see here in the Valley?
Coachella Valley residents seem to have a strong interest in more natural, non-pharmaceutic approaches to wellness and optimum health. The lifestyles in the Valley show a commitment to health and longevity with an emphasis on quality of life.

What do you consider the biggest concern with our health care system today?
Patients are treated from a ‘disease’ perspective, instead of a ‘whole body’ approach–the synergy of mind, body and spirit. This includes addressing stress, nutrition, exercise and overall lifestyle.

What do you enjoy in your spare time?
Flying, reading and exercising.

Your best health advice?
Reduce as much stress in your life as possible.

    Dr. Mandavi is the best doctor I have had. I am sad that I moved out of state. His approach and care has been the Best for me. I miss having him as my doctor.
