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. We are good at what we do, and these people are good at what they do. Some of the individuals with specialized skills and experience who help us serve all the needs of our patients include:

Compounding pharmacies can make individualized prescriptions as opposed to “one size fits all” prescriptions from regular pharmacies.
