Eileen C. Comia, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
As an Integrative Medicine specialist and a board-certified Internal Medicine physician, Dr. Eileen Comia is a strong advocate of biomedical interventions in the treatment of autism and autism-related disorders and chronic illnesses. She was personally mentored by Dr. Sidney M. Baker, co-founder of the Autism Research Institute (formerly Defeat Autism Now), an organization of physicians and scientists searching for causes and treatment modalities for autism.
Dr. Comia completed her postgraduate residency training in Internal Medicine at Overlook Hospital, a major affiliate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. She received her Medical Degree from the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center, Philippines. She went into private practice for seven years before pursuing the "fight against autism".
Being the parent of a teenager with special needs, Dr. Comia understands the frustration and desperation in rearing a child afflicted with autism. Dr. Comia established Advance Biomedical Treatment Center with the goal of not necessarily finding a cure for autism but treating the underlying functional and biochemical abnormalities found commonly in children within the autism spectrum.
Dr. Comia utilizes Functional Medicine in the treatment of illnesses. She believes that physical and emotional well-being are the foundation of optimal health. She empowers her patients to make decisions that'll improve their vitality, nourish their health, and help them gain control of their lives.
Dr. Comia is affiliated with the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs (MedMaps), Autism Research Institute (ARI), and the St. Francis Healthcare Partners. She is a frequent presenter at state conferences, and for local chapters and parent support groups in the field of autism and Integrative Medicine. The biomedical interventions she employs in the treatment of autism aid in enhancing behavioral and adjunctive therapy.
