“My goal as a physician is to assist and offer guidance for each patient on their path back to health. Each patient is an individual with their own specific conditions, concerns, and abilities. I focus on supporting each patient's physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual health; working together to create the environment where the body becomes capable of healing itself. Using my medical knowledge along with my naturopathic principles and modalities, I work to diagnose, treat, and provide support and encouragement for each patient that walks through my door.” - Dr. Sandy
