Verified Patient Reviews
The good doctor took plenty of time with me on this initial visit. Asked me loads of questions and allowed me to do the same. Very much appreciate this.
The staff is friendly yet professional. Dr Valerie is warm, caring and listens very well. Her knowledge of natural support for what makes me feel meh is outstanding. I have a new doctor!
Dr. Phillips reversed my illness. She listens like no other doctor. Her positivism and medical advise are key to healthful living. She will be my doctor for a very long time. It is worth having her as my doctor.
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 would highly 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!
