Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Castaneda-Van Wyk "We believe in a positive, preventative approach to children's health and we apply this philosophy by offering the very best that integrative, functional medicine has to offer. We look for causes of poor health and seek to eliminate them, rather than just looking for symptoms and treating them. And when we do treat, we can integrate traditional medicine with a whole pantheon of effective, evidence-based complimentary modalities and remedies. (Like great nutrition.)"

Patient Comments (1)

I love Dr Iris, she is the best. She always has a back up person to cover her anytime that she is not available. She is very homeophatic dr and she just will give antibiotic if you kid really need. She has been an amaizing dr for our family.
