Shilin Pandya ImageI focus on treating patients holistically. This takes into account any factors affecting you – culture, job, school, family situation, religion, sleep, appetite, past trauma, etc. Issues that are unique to each human being, which means it needs individual attention and a treatment plan catered to those specific needs.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I will not prescribe medications unless you absolutely need them and I will educate you prior to writing you a prescription. Please schedule an initial visit so you make an informed decision.
