I believe in treating a patient as an individual who is complete as the mind, body and spirit. We consider the whole patient and their well-being in order to identify and rectify present and future risk factors of disease processes. Our goal is to get patients well– off medicines where possible — and to provide functional nutrition information and efficient exercise methods to maintain total wellness. Optimization of hormonal balance with bio-identical hormone replacement is an integral part of the program.
