Trusted Practitioners and other Resources

One of the most valuable services we offer is our skills and insights as diagnosticians. Our experience, broad range of practice, and creativity help us identify optimal ways to help you heal. When we do not have those skills ourselves we have the humility to refer you to other types of health care professionals whose specialties compliment the services we provide.

Doctors these days make you wait a long time for an appointment, you pay a lot of money, they don't talk to you in English, and you see them for five minutes and they shove you out the door. I am old enough to remember the old fashioned doctors. You are like them. That's what counts to me - you are thorough and I feel well treated by you. I would like to take my daughter to see you too. The staff is lovely. They are very professional too. -LW
