Our Story

I have spent over 21 years in the medical field and have observed the rise of obesity, addiction, and pain as they have affected the quality of life of so many people. There are so many available therapies that are underutilized but have great effectiveness in these conditions. Having treated these ailments for so many years, it became apparent to me that many practitioners were poorly prepared to intervene. Many patients lost opportunities to improve their health and wellness. Progressive therapies for addictions, weight loss, and chronic pain have been overlooked as options for many patients. Seeing this, I decided to create this clinic with the expectation of helping patients reach their goals, mitigate risk, and enjoy the health they deserve.
