Dr. Craig Job, M.D. is a board certified physician, who specializes in blending traditional western medicine with "holistic" medicine. Dr. Job believes in the individual, rather than the "one size fits all" approach to medicine. His personalized health programs help patients achieve optimum wellness, through a combination of nutrition, exercise, and attention to spiritual health. Currently, Dr. Job practices family medicine at Westgate Family Physicians in San Jose, and is a resident consultant at Five Braches in San Jose. "My approach is grounded in sound medical practice, using evidence when available and guiding patients toward the safest and most efficacious therapies for them. My treatments are employed as adjuncts, not replacements to good modern medicine," said Dr. Job. Born and raised in the Santa Clara Valley, Dr. Job became interested in holistic or “alternative” medicine as an undergraduate at UC Berkeley. At Georgetown University, he studied under various holistic practitioners, paving the way for residency at San Jose Medical Center. It was here, with the support and respect of his medical peers, he developed his “integrative” approach toward health and wellness. It's in this spirit that Dr. Job seeks to understand each patient in the context of their whole lifestyle- body, mind, and spirit. Dr. Job's goal is to put control back into the patient's hands. Through workshops, classes and presentations, as well as individualized care, he helps people understand uses of natural remedies, mind-body techniques and a growing network of alternative health practitioners in the area (acupuncture, massage, hypnotherapy, energy work, spiritual therapy, and others). Dr. Craig Job's office is located at 5150 Graves Ave, San Jose, CA 95129, and he can be reached at (408) 896-4246, craigjob@hotmail.com.

Integrative Medicine
Integrative Medicine is a new approach within modern medicine that acknowledges and ministers to all parts of the person's being- MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT. It's a return to the spirit of old time medicine, where the doctor takes time to listen and understand the patient, thereby fostering a space of trust and sacredness. Use of herbs and dietary approaches focus on this "back to basics" sensibility, knowing that with nutritional sustenance acting as a solid foundation, healing can and will occur.

Integrative Medicine is an expanded paradigm, opening up opportunities for healing on the energetic and spiritual planes, using meditation, manual therapies, acupuncture, guided imagery, sound therapy, meditation, and countless traditional and newer techniques of energy healing. Dr. Job allows intuition and empathy to guide him in uncovering the root causes of a patient's ailments to effect a richer healing experience. He works with a patient's diet and lifestyle to lay the foundation for healing and maximize the benefit of the energetic therapies he delivers and recommends. The modalities in Integrative Medicine therefore offer patients physical, energetic, and spiritual renewal, effecting healing on all levels.

"I have been working with Dr. Craig Job since his arrival at Westgate Family Physicians. There are not enough great things I can say about Dr. Job as my Primary Care Physician. During this time I have worked with Dr. Job on a wide variety of health issues as simple as needing antibiotics for cold/flu to as serious as a potentially life threatening disease. Through all of it I could count on Dr. Job for excellent care including honest straight forward answers, open minded interaction and all around excellent "bed side" manner. I don't believe anyone can say they look forward to going to the doctor however knowing I will be working with Dr. Job on whatever I need care for makes the trip to the doctor virtually painless."

Todd Terreri
