Care may range from yearly visits to management of viral illnesses to long-term conditions such as cancer, congestive heart failure, diabetes or pulmonary disorders. Our family physician also manages screening procedures and promotes “wellness” education for patients. We believe in caring for the whole body and mind, and looking at the big picture, not just diagnosing a single issue and sending you on your way. That means we take care of all your needs, listen to your issues and solving them through our health and wellness services. Our team works together to get you back to feeling your best.

It’s our goal to make you as comfortable as possible when you’re in our care. We strive to make our patients feel comfortable in a caring environment. We have created a warm and friendly environment, complete with themed examination rooms, including a Buckeye, Lima Locos, and Chevron room. As a community oriented family care and wellness center, we have an events and information board available at our location.


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen. No matter the reason you seek out a massage, whether for pain management, stress relief, or simply as a treat, massage therapy can help you.

Massage therapy has many benefits for a multitude of conditions, such as:

  • Alleviating low back pain
  • Improving range of motion
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles
  • Lessen depression and anxiety
  • Relieve migraine pain
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks
  • And many more!

When we meet with you we will discuss your desired outcome and any health concerns you have. This will help our therapist determine which parts of your body will require massage. Typically, we will focus on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders.

Medication Therapy Management

We will also review and recommend medication therapy in patients in order to streamline therapy, maximize benefits, and reduce side effects in patients.

Dietetics

Sometimes it’s necessary to visit a dietician to know what kind of changes you need to make for your health. When we begin, our patients go through an initial evaluation with our registered dietitian. We want to understand your eating habits, your lifestyle choices, and where changes can be made. In our program we also want to educate you on proper calorie intake, but also teach you about the different proteins, carbohydrates, and different types of fats. The benefit of going through our dietetic program range from losing weight, eating healthier, finding increased energy, and possibly eliminating certain medication. This program could be for you if you suffer from diabetes, overweight, hyperlipidemia, and other nutritional deficiencies

Pain Management

We will evaluate pain related issues and recommend treatment options ranging from nutritional supplementation to compounded, trans-dermal medications which can reduce side effects commonly seen with oral therapies and increase drug levels at the site of pain, leading to better results. Options include trans-dermal pain management.

Nutritional Supplementation Recommendations

We can make Vitamin, Mineral, and herbal recommendations, including our featured supplement line Ortho Molecular.


Hormone Therapy/Consultation


Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT)

We will evaluate Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, cortisol levels, and replacement of deficiencies in these hormones to promote optimal health in patients. BHRT involves the replacement of deficiencies with hormones that are identical to the hormones produced by the human body, rather than using synthetic drugs. BHRT hormones are often compounded specifically for a patient’s specific needs.

Thyroid Hormone Replacement

We can provide treatment of hypothyroid disorders by evaluating the entire thyroid hormone cascade including TSH, Total and Free T4 and T3 levels, Reverse T3, Screenings for Hashimoto’s disease, Vitamin D, and Ferritin levels. Replacement of thyroid hormones can be made with a variety of thyroid hormones, including using compounded thyroid therapies to achieve optimal health.

Adrenal Function Evaluation

We will evaluate adrenal function utilizing saliva testing and symptom assessment. Adrenal assessments can help to identify adrenal fatigue or hyperadrenal states. Adrenal dysfunction contributes to hormone imbalances, mood/depression/anxiety, sleep issues, fatigue, weight gain, insulin resistance and many other chronic disease states.

Saliva Hormone Testing

We use ZRT Labs for assessment of these levels.
