Eleven Eleven Wellness Center
We at the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center are committed to creating sustainable wellness. We offer patient-centered care to help people get healthy and keep them healthy. Our treatment strategies take an integrative approach by combining Western Medicine with what are considered "alternative therapies." We promote lifestyle changes through diet, nutrition, exercise and stress management and our clinicians use a variety of non invasive modalities such as Acupuncture, Physical Therapy, Chiropractic, Active Release Technique and Nutrition Counseling. Although we try to avoid Pharmaceuticals, we do prescribe them when necessary. We consider the uniqueness of each patient and how both internal and external factors impact functioning. We encourage our patients to become pro-active in their own health and partner with them as they journey towards true health and optimal wellness.

Tina Discepola MD
Tina, a native New Yorker, practices Integrative Holistic Medicine in New York. A graduate of the UAG Medical School in Guadalajara, Mexico, she completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at Metropolitan Hospital Center in NYC and became board-certified (ABEM) in 1996. She practiced full-time Emergency Medicine until 2006.
Her own personal health struggles allowed the doctor to explore alternative healing modalities. It wasn’t until her daughter was born with a serious congenital cardiac condition that Tina was able to truly experience the healing power of acupuncture, cranial-sacral manipulation, and dietary manipulation. As her personal journey in holism evolved, so did her medical practice. She quickly learned the key role that an inflammatory diet, inactive lifestyle, negative thoughts, and hormonal decline played in all of the major illnesses that she sought to heal.
Dr. Tina, as her patients call her, now fully dedicates her practice to the art of creating health and longevity through whole food dieting, nutritional therapy, and Bio-identical Hormone Replacement therapy.
Dr. Tina is a Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine (ABHIM), and a Diplomate of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). She is an active member of The American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM).
