Center For Wellness & Integrative Medicine


I am Dr. Tom Yarema, the Medical Director of The Center for Wellness and Integrative Medicine in Santa Cruz County, California. My passion and purpose is to help people obtain optimal health through a range of approaches and therapies that focus on the whole person, not just the symptoms.

My clinical practice includes general family medicine and specialized medical services and incorporates components of Allopathic Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Clinical Nutrition and Environmental Medicine.

I have a special interest in helping people lose weight and reduce the risk of related conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and metabolic syndrome. I offer physician-assisted weight loss support programs, and I am the author of an award-winning patient guide and cookbook titled Eat, Taste Heal.

My offices are located in the city of Soquel, and my patients come from throughout the Monterey Bay and San Francisco Bay area. I also offer telemedicine services to patients across the country.

I am dedicated to helping people live their lives to the fullest. Your health and well-being is important to me. I encourage you to contact our offices and see how we can help you can become the best that you can be.
