By Lisa Colodny, Pharm D., BCNSP
The use of alternative or supplemental medicines is at an all-time high in the United States as well as other countries. It is no surprise, then, that questions about their efficacy, side effects, drug interactions, and place in therapy are among the most
frequently encountered by healthcare practitioners of all disciplines and specialties. Recently Chris Foley, MD, coeditor of the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association (JANA) spoke with Rudy Segna, MD, FACOG, in New York about the
methodology required to integrate the use of unpractical into a medical practice. Dr. Segna maintains a private oncology practice in New York City, and is an assistant professor, Department of OB/GYN, at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York
City. The following interview is a result of a conversation between Dr. Foley and Dr. Segna.
