“Patricia is truly in a league of her own. She frequently finds things that my physicians have overlooked. I have been fortunate to be under her care for over 10 years, including during two pregnancies. She is very adept at analyzing how everything in the body works together and can solve complicated injuries, especially those incurred during pregnancy. She is able to not only treat the primary problem but also the secondary and tertiary effects on the body. It is this micro and macro view that enables her to more effectively treat the patient and ultimately heal them and prevent future problem areas. I would not be pain free if it wasn’t for Patricia. She is the BEST!!!”
