About the Couri Center for Gynecology and Integrative Women's Health:
We are very pleased to provide a new and innovative program to women in the Peoria Illinois area.
For a decade now, Dr. Couri has provided exemplary health care for women in this area. Her vision for the future of women’s health care will expand beyond the foundation of traditional medical and gynecological care. Dr. Couri has designed a multi-disciplinary team to offer women individualized care …provided by women and for women.
We believe that health care for a woman should be holistic, considering the “whole person” as a partner in her health care. We believe that women deserve a comprehensive, researched and evidence-based approach to their health care today. As health care evolves in the 21st century, our entire team of providers will be continuing their education as an integral part of the care we provide.
Staying abreast of the current research and trends in health care today is vitally important so that we will be able to provide a “best practice” approach in the delivery of care. We want women to have options in their care.
We have the experience and foundation of our traditional western medical and nursing education, combined with the integrative and complementary therapies that will be available. We will strive to partner with our patients and develop a specific, individualized plan of care tailored “just for her.”
Our goal: To provide a holistic, individualized approach for women and designed by women to provide optimum health and wellness for a woman, at any age of her life, from adolescence into her senior years.
We offer a wide range of convenient integrative services including gynecological services, general women's health services, surgeries, nutritional consultations, personal training, massage, healing touch, in office laboratory, in office sonograms, healthy cooking classes, seminars, and retail center that includes supplements, books, aromatherapy, and much more.
