" Dr Nerette and Stephanie have been treating me for several years. They are personable, upbeat, and knowledgeable. They are available by phone and are prompt in returning calls and addressing issues whenever needed. They have helped me through several issues and improved my health, sleep, and well-being. The quality of my life has definitely improved due to their responsive and expert care. I truly feel at least 10 years younger! I wish more women/men would take advantage of their services and also improve their quality of life. "
" I’m so thankful to have found Dr. Nerette after years of “traditional” medicine doctors that did much more harm than help. Dr. Nerette actually took the time to listen and understand, and knew exactly which tests to administer to provide me with “nutraceuticals” that healed my body from all the awful chemical drugs that doctors had prescribed me previously that just masked the symptoms. Dr. Nerette healed me by addressing the root of the problem and enhancing how my body functions. Within months I feel better than I have in years, more than I ever could have imagined! So thank you thank you thank you!!! "
" I was having trouble going through menopause, that is, until I was referred to Dr. Nerette and his partner (both in business and life), his wife, Stephanie. I have begun hormone replacement therapy via pellet and a regimen of vitamins and cannot wait to explore other methods of alternative medicine that they offer. Thank you so much to both of you and your incredible friendly and professional team. You have given me hope to a much happier and healthier lifestyle!!!! "
