It’s been 11 years since, I’ve been in control of my own body. The walls i’ve built, the demons I battle and the weight of depression has kept me from living my life for over a decade. One day all the stars aligned, I woke up and said “I think things are going to be okay”. I don’t think about the walls, I no longer worry about the demons, and I feel like the weight was never even there. The next time I’m lost I know I can fallow those stars to your office and you’ll help me find my way home.

I am so thankful for Dr. Saifuddin and her team of Wellness Professionals, couldn't speak more highly about them and my experiences. They have become like a second family to me. The whole team here is amazing at what they do and truly cares about their clients. Dr. Saifuddin provided me with the right knowledge and micro nutrient supplements to get my health and life back. I am so grateful to her and her team.

I. Love. Her. Honestly, it's impossible to find a psychiatrist who isn't cold, reserved and clinical. She's warm, friendly, smart, intuitive and comforting. Her office staff is amazing - kind, helpful and accommodating. I can't recommend her or her practice highly enough. Unfortunately with most great doctors - and they are a rare breed - I suspect she'll be unable to take new patients soon, but try if you need help - she's a gem.

I took my son in the beginning of 4th grade due to his Asperger Disorder and behavioral problems at school. Dr. Saifuddin did the Brain Chemistry testing. He was placed on cognitive behavior therapy with Sean and on medical nutrition by Dr. Saifuddin. There were definitely results early on, but now we're at the end of 6th grade and he is like a completely different kid. It takes some time to see the ultimate results, but it is beyond worth it. I highly recommend it.
