Darren Lynch, MD joined Northampton Integrative Medicine in January, 2004, following completion of an Integrative Medicine Fellowship at the Continuum Center for Health and Healing in New York City. There, he received training in a wide range of complementary and alternative healing modalities. He has published research articles in Alternative Medicine Alerts and Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine.
Dr. Lynch received his MD from Georgetown University, followed by a 3 year family practice residency at York Hospital. During the next 2 1/2 years in private practice, he became increasingly frustrated by the limitations of conventional medicine. He began his journey into integrative medicine by incorporating herbal remedies and osteopathic manipulative techniques, providing his patients with greater therapeutic choices.
Dr. Lynch practices from a Body/Mind/Spirit, patient-centered model of healing. He treats therapeutic relationships as partnerships in which doctor and patient decide together the path by which each patient may find optimal health. He seeks to find the underlying cause for illness and in doing so, embrace wellness. He treats patients of all ages and welcomes the opportunity to tackle any medical problem.
Dr. Lynch is board certified in Family Practice and Integrative Medicine. He is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Institute of Functional Medicine. He is a soccer and downhill skiing enthusiast, and enjoys hiking and spending time with his family.
