Two years ago I met with you regarding my recent diagnosis of osteoporosis … last month I went for a bone density scan and was nicely scolded by the technician when she realized that I had been diagnosed with osteoporosis two years prior but was not on any conventional medicine … she indicated that you cannot grow bone at my age … when [she] scanned my spine again, she was surprised … [and] tried to re-work the results several times, but they all came back with a positive change and the diagnosis of osteopenia.  I will continue to work with you … as well as continue my life style changes with regard to eating and exercising in the hopes that I will continue to see such great results in the future.  Thank you so much for your help over the last two years.  It’s been an amazing journey.                 Sincerely, MM

I woke up this morning for the first time in a long time since my cancer diagnosis…feeling like a human being!!  I mean I felt great.  Thank you for giving me the time and patience, and education to help me regain my quality of life.  I hope I continue on this path.  It feels great to be me again!  Thank you so much J TM

Thank you for taking me on as a patient!  I sing your praises to everyone and am blessed to have you with your expertise and knowledge helping me stay healthy!  LS

Your practice blazed a trail for others to follow as “alternative health care” has become more gradually acknowledged in more establishment businesses/practices.  I wanted you to know that you made a positive difference in my life and I have benefitted from your wisdom, knowledge and compassion.        Sincerely, BD

I cannot express my deep gratitude for the procedure you performed for me on the ski slope … how many people can say they had a finger set while skiing? … the magnitude of your generosity began to hit me as I left for the day.  You worked on your day off and for that I both thank you and apologize ... Your recommendation of the Arnica gel and tablets worked … My husband and I identify you as “the angel on the slopes.”  We thank God for your presence on so many levels.  Affectionately, SV
