My doctor took care of my parents and I was so impressed with the care they received that I decided to make him my doctor too, best decision I have ever made. He is there whenever I call. I am in great health because of the very comprehensive care I have received. His concern for every area of my health and life gives me peace of mind and spirit. He is simply the best.

Dr. DeAtkine introduced me to probiotics a couple of years ago. The change has been remarkable. I no longer take medicine for acid reflux. I believe in probiotics so much that when my Cavalier Spaniel had some digestive problems I gave him probiotics!! It continues to do the trick for him as well as for me !
