Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shay "Everyone has his or her own image of what being healthy means. My goal is to help each person create that image and to maximize their well-being -- to borrow a phrase, "to be all they can be," even if they do not yet know what that means. This often involves utilizing a combination of standard medical care plus other treatments, such as nutritional, dietary and herbal interventions. Additionally, medical acupuncture or other physical medicine treatment are helpful to assist the improvement of function."
