Patients of all ages find a unique, whole-person philosophy in medical care at Expect Wellness in Columbia, South Carolina. Dr. Rachel Hall is a board-certified integrative and holistic medical doctor, specializing in family medicine. She offers her medical knowledge and expertise in natural and alternative therapies to the whole family -- young and old, male or female. She only relies on pharmaceutical or surgical treatments when all other treatments don’t deliver the desired results, or when those methods are clearly indicated for a specific condition.
Dr. Hall graduated from the University of South Carolina (USC) School of Medicine in Columbia, South Carolina in 1999. She then completed her residency in family medicine at Palmetto Health Richland, also in Columbia. She was certified by the American Board of Family Medicine in 2002 and went on to complete a year of obstetrics training for the Family Physician in San Jose, California. After that, she returned to Columbia to teach family medicine at the USC-affiliated Family Medicine Residency at Palmetto Health.
With a passion for education, Dr. Hall taught for almost 10 years before she attended the Scripps Center for Integrative and Holistic Medicine’s annual meeting in 2011. It was there that Dr. Hall discovered an approach to medicine that truly fit her thought process, inspiring her to embark on a year of self-study. As a result, she passed the board exam for Integrative/Holistic Medicine in 2012.
Dr. Hall’s medical philosophy is that diseases are the result of an imbalance in the body, and therefore the goal of health care is to help patients of all ages find their homeostasis -- their desired balance -- allowing the body to heal itself of illness. As an integrative/holistic medicine family physician, Dr. Hall looks forward to helping everyone in the family live a healthier life, naturally.
