Dr. Wilkinson originally trained in family practice. He later did a two year fellowship with one of the great thinkers in the field of allergy and environmental medicine – Theron Randolph, M.D.
Beginning in 1982 here in Yakima, much of his practice was focused on allergy related issues. Today the practice continues to deal with allergies, but also with a wide variety of chronic illnesses – including the terminal disease we all face: Aging.
Dr. Wilkinson has lectured for the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, the American College for Advancement in Medicine, the Broda Barnes, M.D. Foundation medical meetings, the Nevada Homeopathic and Integrative Medical Society, and other professional groups.
He is the past president of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine.
His goal in medicine to help people with chronic medical issues by using, as much as possible, physiologic approaches to improving the patients’ health. Or to say it in another way, drugs are necessary at times and helpful. However, there are powerful methods available to help healing take place that are not dependent on drugs. Using drugs when necessary but relying mostly on what are sometimes thought of as “natural” methods is what is now defined as being “integrative medicine”. Dr. Wilkinson has been a pioneer in that developing field.
