Danielle Saad, D.O.Medical Director Manchester office

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by sickness and healing. By the time I was in college, I knew that I would study medicine, and that it would be only the beginning of my training. While I pursued western medical training, I also studied (formally and informally) Reiki, Body Talk, other forms of energy medicine, homeopathy, herbs, nutrition, hypnotherapy, and various other alternative and integrative approaches to healing.

I often call Osteopathy my first love in healing, and it forms the foundation of my approach. The central tenant of Osteopathy is that we all have an intelligent and powerful healing system within us. I see my main work as synchronizing with this healing system, understanding its challenges and priorities, and assisting it in its work. As the founder of Osteopathy famously said, “The object of a physician should be to find the health. Anyone can find the disease.” I do so by listening to people – their stories, their wisdom, and their bodies.

I see people at all ages and stages of health. I use whatever combination of western, osteopathic, homeopathic, herbal and energy medicine is appropriate for them. My goal is to meet them on their healing journey, and help them to live life to its fullest. Current areas of focus for me are children with neurological problems, Lyme and tick borne illness, and chronic complex illness.

I live in Durham, Maine with Dustin and our three children.

Dr. Saad’s Credentials:

Dr. Greenfield began his osteopathic medical career as an Air Force trained family practice physician and taught in the USAF in a Family medicine residency program. After completing his military service, he practiced Emergency Medicine in New Hampshire. Unsatisfied with pure conventional treatment approaches, he followed his heart and built a successful hands-on osteopathic and integrative medical practice in Manchester, NH. Dr. Greenfield has a thirst for knowledge and is continually searches for novel treatments that can help his patients.

He returns with a broadened set of skills to treat complex chronic medical problems in sensitive patients.

His love for gentle and natural treatments led him to explore alternative medicine such as functional medicine with nutritional approaches that can be blended with conventional medicine when needed. He has exceptional skills in an Osteopathic Manipulation Medicine style known as cranial osteopathy and has taught nationally and internationally. This style of treatment alone is able to speed up recovery from many illnesses and conditions. His experience in a “hot zone” of Lyme disease led him to develop the unique set of perceptive skills that guide his integrative and conventional medical approaches in each individual.

He happily returns to his new home in Maine with his Wife Heather to practice where he has always dreamed of being. In his practice he will be using his expertise combining osteopathic treatment, with supplementation, herbal medicine and conventional medicine to improve the health and quality of life of his patients.

Postgraduate work was done at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago followed by a fellowship in epidemiology at the Chicago Board of Health under Dr. Jeremiah Stamler where he assisted in the then – pioneering work in diet/heart studies and risk factors in cardiovascular disease as well as developing protocols for large-scale chronic disease screening programs.

He continued this work as an Associate in Medicine at Harvard Medical School where he participated as a research physician in the National Hypertension Study at the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center.

While practicing medicine in Massachusetts, Hy pursued his strong interest in healthy nutrition beginning with a connection to the macrobiotic community in Boston and culminating in the founding of the Baldwin Hill Bakery; the first whole-grain organic sourdough bread bakery in the country (more details can be found in Chapter 4 of the Laurel’s Kitchen Bread Book).

Michael Eng, M.D. Falmouth Office

Michael has been interested in Integrative Medicine since he saw Traditional Chinese medicine while visiting Beijing, China in 1986.  After returning to the United States, he took classes in medicinal and poisonous plants, and ultimately chose to pursue a conventional training in medicine at Duke University School of Medicine.  His experiences in patient care were initially disappointing, and he left medicine to work in Environmental Sciences and to study Toxicology.  When he completed his MD, he moved to New York City for residency  at Beth Israel Medical Center and Mount Sinai Hospital.  He was board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology in 2000.  He has lived in Maine since then.

While working as a Pathologist at Central Maine Medical Center, Rumford and Bridgton Hospitals, Michael further pursued his interests in spiritual health.  He began attending courses at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, MA and was especially engaged by YogaDance.  He is now a certified YogaDance instructor and led classes in YogaDance at CMMC and Bridgton Hospitals.  Michael became a Hospice volunteer with Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice (AHCH), where he learned a great deal about healing  through love, forgiveness and acceptance.  At AHCH he was first exposed to Reiki, and he was trained as a Level 1 practitioner.  He has just completed a year-long course in Positive Psychology through Kripalu, and he has been using the teachings as part of his practice at Integr8 Health.

He still practices Pathology at CMHC, but he expanded his practice into patient care in 2013.  He has begun training in Osteopathic Manual Manipulation, and he has been astounded to see first-hand the profound healing powers of cannabis.  He is delighted to find that patient care outside the traditional practice of medicine is more intimate, individualized and collaborative than what he experienced decades before.  He hopes that the additional lessons he has learned from marriage, parenting, hiking, kayaking, dance and yoga infuse his practice with wisdom, respect and intuition.

Credentials:

  • Master of Science in Nursing
  • Certification for Primary Care and Family Care Nurse Practitioner
  • Reiki and Therapeutic Touch Practitioner
  • Biofeedback Practitioner
  • Bachelor of Science in Nursing
  • Professional musician: vocals and flute

My Journey:

I have known from an early age what my career path would be. After an emergency appendectomy at five years old, I set my sights on becoming a nurse, and never veered from that path. I marveled at the wide range of skills utilized, and the importance of human interaction with not just the patient, but with their entire family and the other medical professionals involved. Growing up in a small town in Maine, the daughter of a minister and a social worker, I was exposed to a wide range of social interactions long before my peers were. I learned the importance of seeing a person as a biological, psychological, social being, which has been impacted upon by a very wide range of entities.

My undergraduate years were spent at the University of New Hampshire, where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. I enjoyed many years working as a nurse in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Hawaii, and Maine. Throughout those years, I was always interested in learning different methods of treating patients other than by the traditional Western Medicine techniques. I took courses in Therapeutic Touch and Reiki, Guided Imagery, Biofeedback, and Therapeutic Massage. My work as a musician also brought a different type of healing, especially to those with psychological illnesses.

Much as I enjoyed working as a nurse, I became frustrated with the limitations of my role and decided to pursue further education. I received my Master’s degree and Nurse Practitioner’s certification from Simmons College. Now I was able to do more for my patients with a wide range of medical practices, both traditional and complementary or alternative.

At that time, I also started my own little business, Good Deed Beads. As a creative outlet, I make beaded jewelry which I then sell, and all the proceeds go to a fund which provides free medical care. While undergoing medical treatments myself, I was appalled at how insurance companies dictated a patient’s care, and I saw what happened to those without insurance. Hence, Good Deed Beads was my way of giving back to those in need, with no strings attached.

I have become associated with The Gesundheit Institute in West Virginia with Dr. Patch Adams, and joined his housecalls program. In October of 2009, I spent four weeks at Gesundheit Institute participating in a class on Humanism in Medicine.  This was a life-changing event for me, helping me realize yet again the importance of complementary and alternative medicines, including humor, in health care.

Integrative Medicine is the combination of traditional Western Medicine with Complementary and Alternative Medicines, mostly from Eastern cultures. Through this practice, a person is treated as a bio-psycho-social being. I am delighted to be a part of Integr8 Health, where every patient is seen as a whole entity, and treated with a wide range of modalities designed to promote health to its fullest potential.

Like most adolescents I didn’t know what I wanted to do for work or what direction to go in when I graduated from high school.

I became a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) when I was 15 years old because I needed a job. While attending high school, I worked in a small hospital on Long Island New York and learned quickly how lucky one is, who is healthy.

The support and appreciation I received from my patients encouraged me to become a nurse. Many patients reported to the Head Nurse and or Physician that I was good at what I did and many left me “Thank You” notes after they were discharged. The feedback truly surprised me and I was deeply touched by their thoughtfulness. The Head Nurse on the floor took me under her wing and I grew in knowledge and confidence.

I graduated from New Rochelle School of Nursing in New York as a Registered Nurse and worked eleven years doing hospital nursing where I provided immediate care to patients. I realized during this time that I wanted to be more involved with prevention and not just short-term treatments.

Once again, family, friends, colleagues and more importantly patients encouraged me to continue my education and I attended and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania as a Registered Nurse in Advance Practice, more commonly known as a Nurse Practitioner.

As a nurse practitioner my goal was not only to treat immediate ailments but to keep patients healthy and to promote their health maintenance. I was enthusiastic in working with patients and felt honored that they were willing to work with me and share their personal being.

My patients’ continued to push me to expand my understanding and knowledge. Too often I would be asked, “What else can I do so I don’t have to take this medication anymore, or what can I do so I don’t get this headache or infection or illness again and why do I feel worse on this medication?” I had to ask myself, am I really helping my patients by giving them medication with unbearable side-effects; was I just trading one illness for another? Patients would ask me about herbs or other health care modalities/alternatives as alternatives to main-stream methods that did not provide long-term wellness.

I was fortunate to meet an excellent herbalist, Deb Soule from Maine, who guided me personally and professionally. I always understood the importance of nutrition: “You are what you eat”. I experienced holistic training in ayurveda, yoga, nutrition and spirit healing at the Kripalu Institute in Massachusetts. I continue to learn and promote my own health by practicing, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and yoga.

I had the opportunity to work with another nurse practitioner, a pioneer in our nurse practitioner group, who practiced Therapeutic Touch, a nursing modality (energy work). I then had energy work done on me for the first time and never had I felt so good/healthy – and with no side effects!

This inspiring experience drove me to become a certified Polarity Practitioner through Westbrook College, then a Reiki Master and years later a Master in Integrated Energy Therapy.

In order to combine my medical training with traditional therapies I opened my own business and served my patients with holistic health care. A dream come true!

Like all of us, life sends us curve balls. Within a week, my home burned down and the building where my office was located was sold. As many of you know, curve balls makes one focus on survival and I joined my husband and obtained a Coast Guard License and served on the USNS Loyall. I then studied with the Navajo Native Americans, which was an excellent experience and educated me on holistic care as a way of life and also helped me to heal.

Last year I was working at a very enjoyable job and unexpectedly had a unique experience. I received messages, suggesting it was time for me to change my job because I couldn’t work full-time and still do my energy/alternative health care. I inquired about the job opening with Dr. D. Sulak and Integr8 Health.

In this unique position I am able to provide patients with a blend of medical and holistic health care. The practice truly offers patients the best of both worlds. I feel fortunate to hold a position where I am able to wholly help patients in an environment where I can learn from them as well as from my gifted colleagues.

Credentials:

  • Family Nurse Practitioner, Board Certified
  • Clinical Specialty in Adolescent Child Psychiatric Nursing.
  • Experienced practitioner specializing in:
  • Integrative Health
  • Integrative Positional Therapy
  • Women’s Health
  • Biodynamic body work
  • Energy Medicine

My first nursing job was at Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, working with children who had cancer and other serious illness. I learned right away there was more to healthcare than medicine. And miracles CAN happen. This early experience shaped my perspective on the role of the practitioner as facilitator and guide for patient and family journeys that are unique and individual.

I was charge nurse for the ICU Step Down Unit there and also taught Health Careers and a Nurse Assistant course at a local High School.
After moving to Maine, I worked in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit and Pediatrics Units at Eastern Maine Medical Center and taught Pediatric Nursing courses and clinical skills in three Nursing Schools.

I completed a goal of becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner with a Master Degree in Nursing through Husson University, and helped start, and worked in the medical clinic at Shaw House Homeless Shelter for teens in Bangor. I also worked in the medical clinic at Job Corps, in Youth Corrections, and at Penquis CAP family planning clinic, specializing in high risk youth, and women’s health.  This experience led me to seek further education in mental health treatment, and I went back to school for 3 more years to complete a clinical specialty in Adolescent Child Psychiatric Nursing through Husson University.

I gained experience in body work in Occupational Health at EMMC treating all injuries for a 5,000+ employee population base, doing case management, acute care, and pre-employment physicals. I also worked treating youth with mental health disorders in Maine and Utah until again feeling limited in scope of practice, and seeing many patients with symptoms related to trauma. Seeking a more holistic and integrative approach to health, I was led to Maine Integrative Healthcare, where I found the unique and individual promotion of wellness that fit my early original philosophy gained from working with children and family patients as teachers, giving evidence to the vast breadth and depth of love and healing. My education has progressed here, into the remarkable realm of energy medicine, and integrative and biodynamic body work, where I am thankful to utilize all previous knowledge and skills in new healing modalities that encompass and benefit health for all.
