Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shelton "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The word health derives from the Old English word hale, which means whole. Wholeness does not come from taking a pill or getting tests and procedures done. Wholeness comes from integrating the tools we have available with an understanding of you as an individual, to help you live life to its fullest."
