Testimonials

I had the pleasure of working with Janice during a transitional period where I needed custom advice and information about my diet. Something that makes her stand out from other medical professionals is her willingness to go above and beyond the usual "standard of care" to make her services accessible. Janice is extremely knowledgeable and, without hesitation, I would recommend her to anyone.
