When people enter Genesis Natural Medicine Center, Dr. Michael Uzick knows they’ll be greeted warmly, and will be pleased with the options for treatment that can be found under one roof. A graduate of Bastyr University’s prestigious naturopathic medicine program, Uzick has worked in private practice in Tucson for the past 18 years, most recently as the co-founder and medical director of Genesis Natural Medicine Center, where patients can expect warmth, compassion and impeccable care. With a passion for helping patients with cancer, he is devoted to tending to the physical and emotional needs of both the patient and his or her family.
Uzick is a past professor of Oncology at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and has served as a board member and Vice President of the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians (OncANP)—the first recognized medical specialty in Naturopathic medicine. He is one of a handful of physicians in North America who is board-certified in naturopathic oncology and the only naturopathic cancer specialist in Tucson recognized by the state of Arizona.
In 2014, Uzick received the OncANP’s President’s Award, for outstanding achievement and contributions to Naturopathic Oncology. In 2016, he won first place for Outstanding Tucson doctors in the field of Oncology, a first for a naturopathic oncologist. He has authored articles on integrative medicine in peer-reviewed journals such as Integrative Cancer Therapies and Alternative Medicine Review, and is a frequent lecturer on integrative oncology and natural medicine.
Creating a wellness center where patients could receive all they may need under the same roof was the vision for his practice. The facility boasts many professionals with diverse experiences that enable them to provide their clientele with unique and holistic approaches to their health and healing. Genesis Natural Medicine Center also offers another naturopathic physician and an M.D. who address a wide range of patient concerns including hormones, cancer care, chronic illness and general nutrition; a chiropractor; acupuncturist; two massage therapists who can offer pain relief, lymphatic massage and support for pre- and post-surgery; facials and ultrasound therapy; medical marijuana certifications; and an infrared sauna. Genesis also regularly hosts yoga and neuromovement classes, along with various lectures and community educational events in its beautiful lobby.
