Dr. deMello has really been there for our family on several occasions. When I go in to see him about any physical issue I am having, he always asks about what is going on in my life and how I am doing emotionally. My appointments with him usually last for an hour or more. I find this so refreshing because there really is a link between body and mind and he practices this deeply. He is very thorough and looks at each issue from many perspectives. Amazing "bedside manner." When my husband (who has a high stress job and drinks too much coffee) goes in for his annual physical exam, Dr. deMello actually calls me (with my husband's consent, of course) and tells me what changes to his diet, exercise, and supplements he wants my husband to do.
Recently, while out of the country, we had a health scare with our 6 year old daughter. A doctor in Europe wanted us to do some pretty serious tests with her. We got a second opinion in Europe and we just were not comfortable until we spoke to Dr. deMello, so we called him at his practice and left a message explaining what was going on. He called us back within a few hours and spent a lot of time with us on the phone giving us spot on advice and asking questions about her, physically as well as what has been going on in her life. He is such a wise, gentle doctor and made the whole scary process feel a lot better. She is fine, by the way.

When we first moved to L.A., 5 years ago, I did the 21 Day Detox program, led by another doctor from the Akasha Center. There, I met a woman who told me about Dr. deMello and she said, "He is the best doctor I have ever been to." I got his number from her and am so thankful that I met her and that she told me about him. I cannot agree with her more.

Pros: Personal, The best of Eastern and Western medicine combined

Cons: none

I have been battling a weight problem all my life. I have tried it all. My girl-friend referred to me to Dr. Di Mello who diagnosed me when a thyroid problem. Why this problem was missed still baffles me. But I am glad I now know what the problem was ( plus my bad eating habits) I know also see Dr. Gisler for my GYN care. She started me on the Cleanse diet. Although I first fought it tooth and nail, I finally took the plunge and have now lost about 100 pounds. WOW. That is half of me. i feel fantastic and greatful to these amazing doctors

Pros: Compassionate people

Cons: They bill insurance out of network. Does Any doc ever bill?

AKASHA Center for Integrative Medicine is a completely unique practice that offers the highest quality of medical care, individual approach to every patient and warm and caring staff. It integrates Eastern and Western medicine in the most harmoneous way. I am Akasha's patient for Bio Identical Hormone replacement. I drive from the valley all the way to Santa Monica because in my experience there is no better place for any kind of health problems, longevity expertise as well as preventative medicine! For me it's the most trusted place.

A clinic where physicians see themselves as healers, front office staff understand the meaning of being scared about one's illness and the operations director (amazing woman) will do anything to get you properly and timely reimbursed. Their idea of getting a billig person to help you file your claims made it possible for me to pay them up-front. Not a bad deal considering that the doctor spent one hour and 45 minutes with during my initial interview. He then spent an hour for the susequent follow up. Having been a patient at Kaiser for over a decade and used to their stardant 5 minute visit, I initially thought the doctor were just being nice to me because I was facing cancer. Then I sent my neighbors and 2 familty members to them who reported the same experience. Thedoctor's East Asian backgrond ( He is from India) added a new touch and very effective approach to my treatment. Obama should include the Akashe Center as a model for patient-centered-less-is-more approach to medicine. My only complaint... Parking. So leave enough time to park.

Pros: Healing place, amazing physicians, all under one roof approach

Cons: parking and cost

While it is indeed true that they are very nice at the Akasha Center, I have had an ongoing billing issue with them and the horribly rated labs they contract with for over two years now. Their inability to deal with the companies they hire is appalling. It's neglect, pure and simple. For this very reason I wouldn't recommend doing business with them, as I was told by members of their staff at the onset of my billing debacle, in September of '07, that I'm not the only one of their patients who's fallen victim to their lab's (Westcliff Medical Laboratories and Specialty Labs) questionable business practices.

It's just that, I find it rather ironic that Akasha Center is supposed to be a place of holistic, higher than average care and stress reduction, when it in reality has single handedly caused me more grief and stress than any other company ever has. Because of this I have not gone back.

Pros: NIce Staff and Drs/ NDs.

Cons: They contract with labs that are terrible, and don't solve their patient's billing issues.

I really like this place, its like a full service clinic, but with wholistic medicine and professionals, they have all kinds of methods of healing, from therapy to acupuncture, to meditation, herbs and most things i can think of, i do therapy in this clinic, and its great, the head of the psychology dept. is my therapist and she's great, i highly recommend this place for anyone interested in alterative methods of healing and getting better, whether is quitting smoking or cancer, they can help you out.

I had had a cough and fever for 10 days. My other doctors (2 of them) had told me to go home, rest and relax. They said I did not need to be anxious for what I had was just a bad virus. But I knew deep inside that something was wrong. I called the Akasha Center - I had read a brief article on them 2 years ago. They were able to see me right away. The doctor showed me genuine compassion when I broke down and told him I knew something was wrong and that I was afraid I was not going to be able to take care of my 2 year old son. He sent me in for an xray directly from his office calling the radiology dept at Saint John's himself. I then returned t the clinic. He was right - and so was I. I had a raging case of pneumonia. My husband was called at work and came to get me. They served me tea and had me lay down on a beautiful acupuncture room till my husband got there. Then they said I would be OK and this time I belived them. I saw the true healers they were. Thank you Gwyneth Paltrow for letting people know about these great healers ( read the article on InStyle Magazine)

Pros: Calming enviroment, all other one roof disciplines, loving people

Cons: a bit expensive, no parking (but plenty of street parking)

I was a bit dissappointed with the service and overall care I recieved. They have a nice clean, calm lobby with running water in the background to ease your long waits. The front desk and staff are all very kind an curtious despite who you are........but that could be due the hefty, ridiculous fees they charge each session.
My first consultation meeting ran me $167.00 b/c the therapist had to get a full history in order to "properly treat me" which is OK if his cell phone hadn't gone off nearly 5 times during the initial intake before they finally turned it off. Then every sesssion after consisted of a string of excuses as to why they were late and in and out of the room during each session. Apparently they treat two people at once so you don't a whole lot of one on one attention with each therapit. I came in a number of times, spent a lot of money and I still wasn't cured. They like to tell paitents that recovery consits of a lot of tiny little steps so it takes time... but at $100.00 a step???!!! I know this is supposed to be a great Center but I think overall it's much too pricey for the average service they give. I've definatley had much better treatments for a lot less money. The only really good thing is that they have a number of different doctors under the same roof so they can conspire with one another if they need to to better assist you.
