Amanda Placeres, ND
Thank you for stopping by. I am Dr. Amanda Placeres and my approach is simple. As a Naturopathic Doctor, I am trained to integrate the best of evidence-based Natural therapies with the latest Medical Science. I do that through comprehensive evaluations, physical exams, and testing. This testing includes both conventional testing and the most advanced to date that allows me to hone in and investigate what is happening on a biochemical and physiological level.
I tell my patients that I am a “Numbers Doc.”
What do I mean by that? Well, I don’t play guessing games. If you have a problem, acute or chronic, I want to discover why. Let me be your Medical investigator, and get down to the real problem. Let me help you treat the underlying imbalance so that you can start to truly heal. It is my goal with all my patients to empower them to maintain their own health. It should not be your long-term goal to be on many supplements for the rest of your life. My treatments come in phases, providing only the supplements that are necessary to build you up and restore what was missing. Once we have corrected deficiencies (and discovered why they occurred) we move on to the next phase in health, maintaining balance. This process varies for each and every patient and along the way we may utilize other therapies to help augment the healing process.
