Physicians Looking For Alternative Treatment Options
Thank you for referring patients to us. At Nova Clinic (Nova Clinic), we are poised to intervene on behalf of both the patient and the healthcare professional, whose time and resources do not allow him/her to offer wholistic therapies or services. As patients seek medical attention when self-treatment fails, or as the family practitioner refers to the medical specialist for expertise beyond their own, Nova Clinic has the ability to serve as a trusted resource in holistic medicine to both patients and medical professionals alike.
Nova Clinic is committed to an effective partnership with referring clinicians in order to provide the highest quality patient care. The best way to maintain this care is continued open communication. Below is what to expect from us as we add to their provided care. Please free to contact us any time with additional information or questions about patients we share.
Nova Clinic offers excellent naturopathic, holistic medicine and wellness care by uniquely tailoring our approach for each patient based on scientific biochemical evaluation and treatment plans that use only safe, natural, non-toxic therapies proven to be effective.
