After years of working for different practices I realized that I wanted to open my own health and wellness practice. Nowadays, we have so many specialties which require patients to be seen by multiple providers on an individual basis.
This takes time and energy and increases the risk of stress and anxiety in addition to exposure to other illnesses by having to go to multiple offices.
I wanted to offer a destination where people could be treated for a variety of reasons under one roof. I also experienced many obstacles in regards to what I could or could not do to help my patients, because of financial boundaries or influences and other limitations. And I wanted to figure out a way to get around it!
Lastly, I have suffered from major illnesses myself and I always thought to myself, as a patient, how would I do things differently as a provider to make things easier, more efficient, and more effective in this situation.
