CCIM integrates biophysical, psychospiritual, emotional, nutritional, and medical aspects of life into our assessments of each person we serve. Furthermore, we integrate into one unified perspective an understanding of the mutually interdependent and interconnected organ systems: cardiovascular, pulmonary, endocrine, neurologic, immunologic, and gastrointestinal. Like different components of an orchestra, these systems work together to create the symphony of the human body.
CCIM is committed to comprehensive medical care to address the needs of you and your loved ones. Led by founder Dr. DV, Dushyant Viswanathan, M.D., we have a team of specialists focused on improving health, reversing disease and fostering education with the ultimate goals of peace of mind and the living of a happy life.

I have significantly increased muscle mass, tone, flexibility and strength, and am leaner and in better shape than I have ever been, and have increased confidence as well! Working with Dr. DV in the SCULPT program provided me with the right tools, support and medical foundation that expertly fit together all the interlocking pieces to succeed. Dr DV’s deep-level, detailed diagnoses and solutions, and his ongoing meticulous and caring attention was effective to reverse physiological imbalances that were limiting me and causing deteriorating health, and then continued to support me to take the next steps to lose weight, tone my muscles, build strength and achieve overall good health. I am really enjoying the program and the results! -Nantz Rickard Washington, DC 12/22/15
