What we do…

Many conditions take years to develop. We value what is best for the patient and give recommendations on the highest level of service. We produce remarkable results by providing the latest technologies to deliver the highest quality of care. 

How we do it…

We make proper recommendations using a collaborative effort by medical and chiropractic staff to identify the underlying cause of a patient’s issue. We then allow the patient to choose a level of care that best works for them.

Our philosophy…

We believe that patients have a choice when it comes to their healthcare. That each patient has the right to achieve the greatest health benefit possible.

That patients have a right to choose which treatment options are best for them and what treatment goals they want to pursue.

That patients have a right to know what things are going to cost ahead of time and that there should be no “surprises” when it comes to their care.

In using the best treatment protocols (best technology, best available research, along with clinical experience) to help each patient reach his/her goals.

We believe in the continuation of care ONLY if the patient is getting the results they desire. Lubbock Integrated Medical Institute: Patient-Centered…Results Driven.

Christopher Rose, M.D.

A Contemporary Physician in the Healing Arts

I chose family medicine because during medical school I enjoyed every aspect and specialty I observed. Family medicine allows me to participate in all aspects of medicine including pediatrics, surgery, psychiatry, and more.

I am a graduate of Wayland Baptist University, Texas Tech University School of Medicine (1998), and completed my residency in Family Practice at the medical school in 2001. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.

Prior to starting my medical school education I worked professionally as a Respiratory Therapist. This experience provided me with a solid foundation for working with my patients and providing bedside service.

I was born in Lubbock and have enjoyed living in West Texas. I have been married for twenty one years and have two children.
