Thank you for visiting us and for your interest in natural medicine. We have a heart to serve others and we strive to make a difference in the lives of those who become part of our patient family. We truly care about our patients and it is important that our clinic abides by the principle of primum non nocere – first do no harm, which is the duty of all healthcare professionals. By administering safe and effective treatments, we help others without compounding damage and causing unwanted side effects. This is the principle of our clinic and our style of natural medicine.
I am humbled by all the patients that come through our doors – some from nearby, but some from out of state and even out of country. We have patients that drive long hours to come to our office for treatment – only to get back in their cars to drive many more hours home. They travel to our office a few times each week. We have patients that fly here for their visits – even ones that pilot their own private planes to come for treatments. Health is truly priceless and being healthy and staying healthy should never be taken for granted. I certainly do not take the medical profession lightly because it is a huge responsibility and a rewarding career. For those who come to our office, we pledge to you our dedication to top quality medical care.
