Mark Filidei, D.O.
Director of Integrative Medicine | Amen Clinics
Dr. Mark Filidei is an Internal Medicine physician and is the Director of Integrative Medicine for the Amen Clinics. Integrative Medicine brings together conventional medicine with complementary and alternative therapies. Dr Filidei’s approach is to find the root cause of a person’s health problems including metabolic, genetic, and environmental factors, and to treat those problems in as natural a way as possible by using targeted nutritional supplements, correcting hormone and metabolic imbalances, improving lifestyle and diet, and detecting and treating toxin exposure and infections. At the heart of the Amen Method is the understanding that in order to effectively treat the brain, you must treat the entire body. As an expert in this field, Dr. Filidei advises not only patients at the Amen Clinics, but the physicians as well.
Dr. Filidei is highly experienced in integrative/alternative medicine modalities as well as conventional medicine and sees patients in person at the Amen Clinics Newport Beach. In addition, he also makes himself available for consultations via Skype and over the phone with patients from all other Amen Clinics. Prior to joining the Amen Clinics, he served as the medical director of the Whitaker Wellness Institute, the largest Integrative Medicine clinic in the United States where he spent over a decade treating thousands of patients for multiple complex medical issues. Dr. Filidei is well versed in utilizing a variety of therapies to help strengthen, heal, and detoxify the body including Hormone replacement Therapy, IV therapies, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, and Metabolic/Functional Medicine. He is board certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, and is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Pain Management. Dr. Filidei also specializes in treating pain patients with Prolotherapy and PRP (platelet rich plasma), which can treat many chronic pain conditions without surgery.
Dr. Filidei received his undergraduate degree in Physiology from the University of California Davis, his medical degree from UNT Health Science Center in Texas, completed his internship at Tulane University and his residency in Internal Medicine at the Ivy League’s Brown University. He is also on staff at UC Irvine as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine where he teaches medical students and residents.
