"I was referred to David by my oncologist. Initially I wanted support through chemo and in recovering from its effects, but now I am enjoying nutritional and herbal support to keep me strong in the fight to prevent a recurrence. David studies with Donnie Yance, who is a world renowned herbalist and nutritionist with a great track record in helping cancer patients, as well as a network of integrative medical doctors and other practitioners. David has taken a particular interest in breast cancer, amongst other things, and I have appreciated his inquisitive mind, problem-solving approach and attention to tracking patterns he sees amongst his patients. To me this shows his ability to listen and his interest in the disease itself, which makes me feel like he's dedicated to solving rather than just relieving a symptom. I've appreciated how he utilized all of his resources to offer me very personalized care. I've referred him to friends who are dealing with different kinds of cancer and they are pleased also. One has never even met him but instead consults with him over the phone because she lives out of the area. I've also really appreciated that David understands the costs associated with my treatment plan and he's worked with me to find alternatives while not compromising quality. I trust his recommendations." bz
