Dr. eugene landsbergen
It has always been my passion to involve people, individually in decision making in health care, while still serving them with education, evidence, knowledge and insights; to further the idea of health care for all, opportunities for all. In that light I have trained in the Netherlands, in several parts of Africa, in Israel and in Canada and the United States. In those jurisdictions I have been trained in medicine, surgery, obstetrics, ultrasonography and oncology.
On the complementary side I took a lot of training in Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and homeopathy and herbs, and I like to keep offering that knowledge to people who like to learn about those methods, with an evidence based look. At Greenwood Family Physicians we have always strived to create a team based medical home for our community and that is where I fit in and am proud to have worked with for the last 23 years.
