      This was the worst experience. I went in and Dr Kather did a full blood work up. When the blood work came back, items were prescribed, I went to have them filled, the pharmacist was concerned, He said several of the doses seemed excessive. I started having heart palpitations, and I called her assistant Tonya, because she was out of town, the assistant was not incredibly rude. Unfortunately, there are not enough characters to type the full experience. I DO NOT recommend this... (dr?) at ALL!

      I have gone to Dr. Kather for years and she has been an awesome help to me with all my health issues. She looks at the body in the whole, not just the particular issue you have at the time of your visit. She is thorough, listens to your concerns, questions, and ensures she provides answers to all issues. She is diligent to order blood and urine tests before prescribing any conventional medications or other natural options. I would highly recommend her to any friend or family of mine, and I have.

      Dr. Kather is only concerned about billing patients for as much as she possibly can. She will not even speak to patients over the phone. She requires you to make an appointment to even ask her a question. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Kather says...

      Because of my own struggles over a decade ago with fatigue, I became interested in Metabolic Medicine. Hypothyroidism, hormone imbalances, issues of energy are my specialty as these are all concerns for my life also. I am board certified in Family Medicine and anti-aging medicine and furthered my studies in functional medicine.

      I am married to nutritional biochemist, Stephen Cherniske, a brilliant man that directed the first FDA licensed nutrition and immunology laboratory. We co-authored the book "The Metabolic Makeover: It's all about Energy" and it receives rave reviews. Thousands of people have already benefited from the science-based principles presented in this book. It is also available in Kindle, CD audio and MP3 format. Please read it or listen to it if you want a better idea about the health approach I use.

      The Advanced Family Wellness team is excited to assist you in your journey for better quality of life and better energy each day!

      Dr. Kather's Care Philosophy

      The human body has an amazing capacity for repair. Each day, your body makes over 300 billion new cells. The state of those cells depends upon only 2 major forces in the body: damage and repair. How you treat your body, feed it, exercise, and replenish repair signals will determine what those new cells will be like: healthier or weaker than their predecessors. At Advanced Family Wellness, we want to help you have a better quality of life by optimizing the message of "REPAIR!" and minimizing the message of damage.

      Advanced Family Wellness offers an FDA approved analysis that has multiple benefits of assessing artery stiffness, functional age and cardiorespiratory health factors: the Autonomic Nervous System Health Assessment. This state-of-the-art computer analysis integrates information from chest leads, arm cuff and pulse strength meter to help give preventive medicine direction. In other words, detecting very concerning conditions before they become disabling. It is covered by most medical insurance plans due to the value of its results.
