Business Review

I am super impressed with Dr. Christy Arthur.  After a brief phone call, and a comprehensive initial visit, she created a plan of action to work on the health concerns I want to work on.  Her communication is prompt and very detailed so I know exactly what I have to do.  I also love how she creatively explains things about your body, what may be happening, and how different treatment options or behavioral changes can work in the body to improve my health.  Bonus that her office space is beautiful, very warm and inviting.  I'm looking forward to continuing my health improvement journey with her.
