See How Our Patients Benefit From Our Integrative Approach
My name is Fred Kolberg. I am a retired Navy SEAL. During my career of active service for 21 years I have pushed my body to the absolute limit. From the thousands of miles that I have run, I had meniscal repairs performed on both of my knees while I was still on active duty. I retired in 2003 and still have not slowed down. In 2016 I had a partial right knee replacement and in May 2018 I underwent another meniscal repair of my left knee. My close friend, Dr. Steve Erle told me about his new practice he was opening and that he was implementing state-of-the-art stem cell treatment, and these stem cells would be able to potentially grow some new pads in my knees. On 15 October 2018 I scheduled an online appointment. I was met by a very friendly staff, filled out a digital questionnaire (so nice - touch pad and sign). There was a very short wait time from when I checked in to when I was called back to be seen. I was met by, PA Patricia Babbit, with a smile.
She was extremely professional and had thorough explanations to all my questions about the stem cell treatment. I was provided material that showed case studies of the positive benefits of stem cell regenerative abilities. It also must be noted that with any new technology there is a chance that the procedure does not work with the first treatment and there may have to be a follow-up treatment performed in February when I return to have x-rays taken of my knees. Most importantly the stem cells used are from an FDA approved facility that derives the cells from placentas. The name of the product is AminoFix sports med. There is extensive testing for any and all infectious diseases conducted by a laboratory registered with U.S. FDA. PA Babbit was very conscientious of infection control. The sites were scrubbed prior to the injections. On a side note: I was the first patient to be treated at IRMC. I will provide a follow-up report in mid-February when I return for x-rays to assess the results.
"No one was listening to me regarding my hip and knee pain. I had been suffering with this pain for over 6 years, and although I had sought out help from an Orthopedic doctor the only thing offered to me were Cortisone injections.
I responded to a complimentary consultation advertisement from Integrative Regional Medical Center, and I have received Ultrasound treatment with electrical stimulation as well as Chiropractic Adjustments and Physical Rehabilitation."

Dr. Erle is very knowledgeable and caring when it comes to his patients. Miss Hannah, [Hannah Peterson - PR], is very patient and truly wants the best for you. From the very first day of walking into the office, I've felt valued and feel everyone wants you to feel better. If you are having any problems, please contact them and find out how they can help. It's been worth it to me.
I find all the staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and flexible, but more importantly I am having less knee and low back pain.
After injuring myself years ago, I had resigned myself to living the rest of my life with limited mobility and discomfort. But after stumbling across Integrative Regional Medical Center on Facebook, I was shown that a life of health and wellness is much more possible for the future! My first visit had me feeling something I hadn't felt in years, pain-free in my lower back! I couldn't believe it! I just sat there, NOT feeling pain for once. I have continued with the treatments (there's a great payment plan if you don't have insurance) and the fluid on my knees is evaporating! I truly believe that if I didn't do what I do for a living, my treatments would be even more effective and I would feel even better faster! I can't thank them enough for the positive impact they've had on my future. I'm getting my body back with Integrative Regional Medical Center!
Definitely giving a 5 star to the entire facility. It's amazing finding a facility that works with me and having a toddler trying to make arrangements for her or having same time appointments as my hubby! The scheduling is so flexible and they really make an effort to help make sure you can make it in at anytime during their hours of operation! The visits are just the length of time I would like! There is never long periods of time waiting to be seen, which is a plus! The nurses are very sweet and truly care how you are feeling that day and doing what ever possible to make you feel improvement before leaving! Dr. Erle is truly great at what he does. I came to the facility with severe neck and back pain along with migraines. Within 3 weeks he has already began helping me get relief in all 3 areas and continues to do so. I've seen neurologists for years and have not gotten the slightest relief of my frequent migraines. He is very nice, very informative, works hard to listen to patients concerns and pain or discomfort they are feeling and, at most times, how much improvement there is from previous visits. The facility is great and I appreciate the convenience with my schedule and for allowing my husband and I to be seen at the same time. I highly recommend coming to this facility! Also, they have a kids room to keep little ones occupied and there is a sweet puppy that comes to visit!
I would recommend. They’re friendly and get the job done.
Well organized and friendly staff and I would recommend them to anyone who has joint issues.
This place is wonderful. I highly recommend it to anyone. All of the staff are so kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and they have been absolutely amazing and so supportive. I can't thank them enough for all they do.
My overall health has increased, I've lost weight, become more flexible, and my back, neck and hips feel like I'm back in my late teens. Absolutely awesome, knowledgeable staff. Everyone from their appointment scheduler Danielle to Hannah their physical therapist and all the way up the chain to Dr. Erle.
Excellent medical center to attend. In depth diagnosis thorough explanation. Great service, welcoming office, very helpful and accommodating to setting appointments and action plans to help your needs. I would definitely recommend this office to everyone. I've seen amazing results.
"The service has been more than I’ve been expecting ! And my results have been awesome as well !"
"Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The treatments are really helping."
I've been seeing Dr. Erle for my knees for several weeks now. When I first came in I had a lot of knee aches and pains; just normal walking was a problem! Now things are great. No pain. I am walking a lot and able to do my job better and most of all his staff was excellent! I highly recommend Dr. Erle and his Integrative Regional Medical Center.
I have been seeing Dr. Erle for about two weeks or four treatment sessions. The treatment is painless and I am already starting to get relief from my pain. His staff is friendly, helpful and just a joy to be around. Thank You!
I have breast cancer with bone metastasis. I am in my early 50's. My pain has been chronic and intense. So much so, that I was using a walker and a cane, and was hunched over like someone with severe osteoporosis. I've tried many things including strong opioids and narcotics. Nothing had helped and I was getting weaker and nearly bedridden. Since my pain was chronic and I understood the neoGEN device (they call it the RST) at Integrative Regional Medical Center was for ANY chronic pain I decided I had nothing to lose. I am blessed to have been able to arrange a 5 week stay nearby the clinic so that I could receive treatments every week day. I would often receive twice daily treatments. I know not everyone can do this, but I can tell you that after a couple weeks of treatment my mobility was much better. I was standing up straight, walking around without the cane or walker. By the end of my treatments my mobility continued to improve in new ways and still continues to improve.
I used to have to make a conscious decision to physically get up from bed, but now I am able to roll over and simply stand up. I can drive myself to appointments or the grocery store now. I can take walks around the neighborhood and am making plans with my family. I am looking ahead to the future and not just pushing through each day. I have the Integrative Regional Medical Center to thank for my new found mobility.
I would like to thank all of your staff for doing an excellent job job on reducing my pain. They are doing a great job under your supervision and I am extremely pleased with that.
