To My Dear Patients:

 I have permanently closed my California practice as of March, 2012. I recently completed a fellowship training program in Hospice and Palliative Medicine at the University of South Florida and have relocated my practice to Nashville, TN.  My hope is to bring my Integrative Medicine experience to the field of Hospice/Palliative Medicine, as there is a great need for nurturing, holistic care at the end of life.

It has been a great honor to serve all of you over the years. Some of you have known me for over 10 years, and we have developed trusted friendships. You have watched me grow my practice in all sorts of ways, and have showered me with loving kindness, especially around the birth of my son, Maxwell, in 2008. Others of you are newer to me, but no less special.

I want to assure all of you that I have taken extra care to choose an experienced doctor who can appropriately carry on your treatment program. Please see the NEW DOCTOR REFERRAL page of this website for more information about Dr. Janel Meric, the medical doctor to whom I have referred all of my California patients.  Dr. Meric is both a trusted colleague of mine, and a friend.  We have worked together in the past, and she cared for many of my patients in my office while I was on maternity leave.  Dr. Meric is both a skilled clinician and a compassionate healer.  You will be in good hands.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me personally, at

Thank you for your support and understanding.

With much love and gratitude,

Dr. Catherine Arvantely
