Our Philosophy

We blend the strengths of traditional western medicine with selective contributions from our non-traditional health professional colleagues with a focus on family-centered holistic care. As often as possible,we will administer natural therapies initially and preferentially. Because of this approach, in many cases prescription medicine may not be needed.
