About Dr. Riobe


  • For the first time in 200 years, our children are not expected to live as long as we do.
  • By 2025, the rate of cancer is expected to rise to 42%.
  • Risk of death of adults with diabetes is 50% higher than those without; between 2000 and 2009, the amount of type 1 diabetes in children under 20 climbed 21%, and type 2 jumped 30% in the same period for children.
  • 16 million Americans had at least one major depressive episode in 2012.
  • 50% of Americans have life-shortening diseases by age 18.

The statistics of America’s failing health go on and on…. Why? Our American medical system is based on the prevention of death with early diagnosis rather than prevention of disease. We spend more than the entire continent of Europe on cancer care and have over 700,000 more deaths per year than they do! The cancer epidemic touches almost every American.

Early diagnosis of diseases such as cancer is better than nothing, but is no longer acceptable. There are affordable and effective strategies available to treat the root causes of early symptoms before they become diseases. It’s time to focus on preventing diseases, not just wait until they take hold to act.

Call the Riobe Institute of Integrative Medicine for an appointment today and start your path to prevention. Don’t wait to feel great!

About Mylaine Riobe, MD

With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Riobe has developed a ground-breaking technique to preventing disease and treating illness by fusing Eastern and Western medicines. The dynamic, customized approach is effective and safe. She has helped 1000s of patients overcome debilitating symptoms and difficult illnesses by addressing the root causes, not just masking the symptoms.

A graduate of Columbia College of Columbia University in New York City, where she grew up, Dr. Riobe later obtained her medical degree at New York Medical College and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Medical College of Pennsylvania and the University of South Carolina. She learned conventional medical practices that she used for four years following her graduation and board certification in OB/GYN. Dr. Riobe grew increasingly frustrated with the “cookie-cutter” Western medicine that she had learned and practiced. Although Western medicine serves its purpose for acute, life-threatening conditions, the Doctor felt that patients who suffered from chronic conditions such as fatigue, poor sleep, low sex drive, and obesity often did not find relief from the prescriptions and advice given.

As a child, Dr. Riobe learned holistic healing methods from her grandmother. These methods, learned from someone she trusted and loved, planted her passion to treat her patients in a more holistic fashion.

She allowed her passion to treat the root cause of a problem to lead her to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Integrative Medicine, and Functional Medicine, eventually mastering these Eastern and fused methodologies.

She received her degrees in TCM and functional, integrative medicine at The Academy of Pain Research, a University of California, Irvine-affiliated institution as well as at The University of Miami, and through The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in Boca Raton, Florida.

Dr. Riobe incorporates these three disciplines into her practice to provide an integrative, customized approach combining leading-edge modern medical testing and technology with time-tested energy-based methods of TCM.

In her books, The Tao of Integrative Medicine and The Answer to Cancer, she makes sense out of the chaos that is our current health crisis and sets a path to prevention of diseases such as cancer as practiced at The Riobe Institute. The Riobe Method also provides effective treatment of chronic symptoms and conditions after they take hold.

As a female entrepreneur and a mom, the Doctor knows first-hand how easy it is to be consumed by a hectic lifestyle. She enjoys practicing what she preaches by eating healthy, making time for her family and herself, and keeping active. She also stays on the path to prevention by obtaining her Annual Integrative Check-up, and encourages others to do the same!

Dr. Riobe is the GO-TO health columnist for Fabulous 50!

  • “When I came to Dr. Riobe, I was experiencing severe hot flashes which interfered with my sleeping.  I felt lethargic and was overweight.  Through her patience and medical tests, we have found the problems and solutions.  Throughout the year, we have leveled my hormones, treated the thyroid; my fatigue and hot flashes are no longer an issue.  My constant battle with weight loss is finally showing success!  Dr. Riobe’s supplements are making my life so much more enjoyable!”

    Linda Gibson, Florida,
  • “Before I went to Dr Riobe, I felt an incredible amount of stress, was unable to sleep at night, often waking at 3:00 am and not being able to return to sleep.  I am now able to sleep through the night, waking up refreshed with energy and ready to face my problems, tasks, workload, etc.   My libido has returned and I do not have hot flashes or panic attacks.  Before seeing Dr. Riobe, I was extremely tired, irritable and my self image did suffer.  I now have energy, feel more pleasant and to not feel overwhelmed with life’s problems.”

    Mary S. Casteel, Florida,
  • “The quality of my life has improved due to overall improvement in my energy level.  Higher energy levels remove irritability from ruining your interaction with others… especially my husband.  He’s really glad I found Dr. Riobe.  I used to wake up as tired as I was when I went to sleep.  Now I awake refreshed and able to go through my day with no fatigue which also allows for a better night’s rest since I don’t need coffee to get me through the day.”

    Christina Mitchell, Florida,
  • “Besides the increased energy, libido, weight loss, I am sleeping better and have improved skin health.  Dr. Riobe’s suggestions and treatment have allowed me to live a happier life spiritually and physically.  Since taking the Bio-identical treatment, the night sweats have stopped.  I rest 7-8 hours per night, compared to my previous 4-5 hours.  Once I started the supplements Dr. Riobe recommended, the cortisol levels have reduced and weight loss started immediately.  Losing a few pounds gave me a personal boost which caused the chain reaction to want to continue.”

    Linnea Beard, Florida,
  • “I feel so much better. I have energy and relief from the constant ache in my body. My Mood has drastically improved and I’m sleeping again.”
