Dr. Tobias is a very passionate and determined individual about things she found out to be right and truthful. She is a 1953 medical graduate of the University of Santo Tomas, Manila, Philippines with a 4 year postgraduate training in Internal Medicine and Cardiology here in the US. She has been a US citizen and in active medical practice in the US since 1959 after acquiring her license to practice in the State of Illinois.
Intrigued and a conscientious student of Alternative and Integrative Practices by 1972, she immediately embarked on integrating Alternative treatment methods to her medical practice. Through research, practice and foresight, she was recognized as an Honoree at the 1976 Bicentennial celebration of American Pioneers in Preventive Health Care.
With her continuing hunger and thirst for knowledge about her own health problems, and being in the forefront of introducing alternative treatment modalities into her complementary practice, she had patients coming from all over Chicagoland and neighboring states.
As a triumphant survivor from her own health ordeal (cancer, adrenal exhaustion, diabetes and recently Stroke), by 1980 her focus and energy intensified and were gradually turned toward her "New" medical practice but this time a Holistic one.
After the Closing of her formal practice in 1995 and a very short retirement, she could not resist the urge to return to practice, hence the formal founding and establishing of Tobias Healing Institute to offer her services to those who seek a better quality of life well beyond the so called "elder years". A few months shy from her 83rd birthday; she is naturally enthused in helping her patients follow her footsteps of vitality, vim, vigor and zest for life and in trying to beat the all too common and accepted disabilities of the Aging process.
Dr. Felicitas Tobias has been practicing medicine and helping people heal from all kinds of disease for 50 long years.
