Very happy with Dr Phillips. Attentive and took the time to listen to me. Didn’t feel she was rushed, or impatient as I’ve found with most other drs. Was taken back to see the dr within minutes of arriving and Dr.Phillips didn’t keep me waiting in the exam room more than just a few minutes after I was checked in by the nurse. Very pleasant experience. Thank you Dr. Phillips and staff!

She checks for a lot of deficiencies that most doctors would ignore, and does an extensive thyroid panel as well. Highly recommend for anyone who has been failed by the conventional medicine route.

We were so happy to see a naturopathic Doctor covered by our insurance company!! Dr. Phillips was very thoughtful and knowledgeable about alternatives to prescription drug. I wish there were more of these doctors who take insurance. I wouldhighly recommend her, but I have a feeling she will get quite busy after she finds a permanent office. She does see patients at two locations. I hope that I can find someone like her in Austin, Texas when I move there!
