DR. TY VINCENT
I was born in Anchorage, Alaska and grew up in Wasilla, Alaska from age 2 onward. I went from kindergarten through high school in Wasilla, and I’ve seen incredible change in the Mat-Su Valley since then.
I had 2 wonderful children before beginning medical school with a third at the end of the first year. I’m up to six now, and family is extremely important to my wife and me. I worked in restaurants during and after college from 1993 to 1998 as a dishwasher, busser, waiter and manager. I worked as a nurse aide at Providence Hospital as well from 1996 to 1998.
I have lots of “life experience”, working and going to school full-time while having small children at home; at times working 2 jobs to support my family. I have been on food stamps, WIC, Denali Kidcare and other sources of government assistance and am extremely sensitive to the cost of medical care and the financial situation of my patients. I routinely save people money by finding cheaper (and safer) alternatives to expensive prescription drugs, avoiding the need for expensive tests and procedures, and often helping them get better overall; which reduces their health care costs overall.
I have had an intense interest in complementary and alternative medicine since before attending medical school, reading two of Andrew Weil’s books in 1997. I have continued to ask difficult questions about health and wellness and pursue the answers in many directions, with ongoing education efforts. I learn something useful nearly every day and I always encourage my patients to check back with me repeatedly with their questions. I have found that listening to my patients is one of the best ways to learn; I encourage you to tell me anything you think is relevant and ask me any question you can think of.
I am a scientist at my core, and it amazes me just how UN-scientific modern American medicine really is! Most doctors will usually tell you that what you eat has little to do with your illness or symptoms, and almost never really address diet with a patient as a means to correct their problem. They are also trained to believe that taking vitamins is of no use and may actually be harmful, so they discourage the practice without really understanding the issue. Possibly worst of all, conventional doctors have no training in understanding the effects of environmental toxins or heavy metals and what to do about them. It’s not their fault, but rather the fault of the current medical education system which is largely controlled by the pharmaceutical industry. My colleagues frequently comment to me that my methods don’t conform to the accepted ‘standard of care’, and I generally respond ‘that’s because my standards are much higher than that.’
I have devoted years to studying nutrition and other methods of natural healing, always with a firm grounding in science and scrutiny of the available literature. If you mention a therapy or supplement that I don’t know anything about I will not tell you it is bad, rather I will ask you to bring me any literature you have on it and try to learn as much as possible before giving my opinion. I have frequently had patients give me information on things I knew nothing about, and tell me new information about things I thought I knew well.
It did not take long for me to become disenchanted with conventional medicine and treating symptoms with drugs. The standard approach to medicine in the U.S. usually does not address the cause of illness at all, and often makes it worse over time. I am devoted to finding the underlying cause of a person’s illness and correcting it in the most natural, harmless and cost-effective way possible. My role is to investigate, educate and encourage each person toward their health and wellness goals with appropriate intervention and treatment where necessary. I love a challenge, and my favorite thing to hear is: “I’ve been to 5 different doctors and none of them can figure out what’s wrong with me!”.
University of Alaska at Anchorage : 1996
Dr. Vincent received his B.S. in Biological Sciences from UAA in May 1996, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
He had a strong minor in Philosophy as well, receiving two semesters full tuition scholarship from this department during his last 2 years.
University of Washington School of Medicine : 2002
Dr. Vincent attended medical school at the University of Washington, consistently the top medical school in the nation, and finished near the top of his class of 182 students. He achieved ‘Honors’ designation in 22 out of 27 preclinical courses during the first 2 years, and won a special award for excellence in the study of anatomy during the first year WWAMI site in Alaska.
Thanks to the WWAMI program Dr. Vincent was able to spend most of the 3rd and 4th years in Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley for clinical training.
FAAEM : N/A
Currently in the process of completing a fellowship in Environmental Medicine, should be completed in 2010.
Environmental Medicine involves identifying the role of toxins (ie heavy metals, pesticides, plasticizers, PCB’s, household chemicals and food additives to name a few) in a person’s health problems, and then helping them clear the toxins or overcome their effects.
There is advanced training in novel techniques of allergy elimination and chemical desensitization, hormone balance, detoxification and intravenous nutrition.
Esthetic Laser Practitioner : 2007
Dr. Vincent completed training for the cosmetic use of our Fotona Laser system, which can be used to treat vascular lesions such as varicose veins, treat severe acne, and remove wrinkles and sun damaged skin from the face and upper neck.
Chinese Herbal Medicine : 2006
This was a course also put on by Helms Medical Institute, specifically for graduates of the acupuncture training program. It involved an additional 40 hours of training in Chinese Herbs and their appropriate use in a Western Medicine setting.
Reiki Level II Practitioner : 2006
Dr. Vincent has completed training and attunement in Reiki levels I and II. Reiki is a form of energy-healing that has Japanese roots. Dr. Vincent does not charge for this service or perform it as a specific treatment in clinic, but uses the skills in patient interaction and as an adjunct to acupuncture treatment at times.
Medical Acupuncturist : 2005
Dr. Vincent completed a 300 hour training course in medical acupuncture through UCLA during his 3rd year of residency.
This course is produced by Helms Medical Institute, and is the most respected and long-standing acupuncture training program for physicians in the country. The state of Alaska only requires 220 hours of training, but this course fulfills the highest requirements of all states in the US.
American Board of Family Medicine : 2005
The ABFM is the governing body for certification of Family Medicine physicians. You must complete an accredited 3 year Residency in Family Medicine to be eligible to take the board exam, and re-examination is required every 7 years currently.
Dr. Vincent took the board exam in July of 2005, 6 weeks after completion of his Residency training, and scored in the 99th percentile nationwide. This means his mastery of conventional family medicine was in the top 1% of all family medicine trained physicians who took the exam in 2005 across the country including other new graduates and seasoned physicians alike.
International Organization of Integrative Cancer Physicians: 2012
American Academy of Environmental Medicine : 2007
The Institute For Functional Medicine : 2006
American College For The Advancement Of Medicine : 2006
American Academy of Family Practice : 2002
Society of Teachers of Family Medicine : 2005
This award was given to Dr. Vincent at graduation from residency training in Anchorage. It is an award given by the faculty to the one graduating resident who they felt was the best teacher to the other residents and interns.
Dr. Vincent absolutely loves to teach, and this was his proudest award ever. He has placed a dry-erase board on the wall in each exam room and tends to give ‘mini lectures’ to patients about their health issues to improve patient education.
Arthur Schaible Award for Excellence in Anatomy : 1999
This was a highly coveted award given to one member of the first year medical school class at the Alaska site for the best performance in anatomy including written exams, oral exams and dissection as well as overall cooperation and willingness to help others in the class.
Thinking Outside The Pill Box : 2012
Thinking Outside The Pill Box contains an exploration of how our medical system came to be so defective and ineffectual, a thorough look at the important factors influencing human health, and an in-depth discussion of many common underlying causes of chronic illnesses in the modern world. It is designed as a self help book for both the reader and their future generations.
Practice Philosophy: Knowing the perspectives from both modern medical science and the healing power of nature brought me where I am today. My favorite quotations are: “Treat others as you want to be treated”, and “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.
Areas of Focus: Integrative cancer care, diabetes, depression, hypertension, IV + HBOT clearances, children’s nutrition, general wellness, emergency and acute sick care.
