Dr. Bruce Friend
Dedicated to treating individuals with Covid related long hauler syndrome. If you are suffering with Brain fog, Fatigue, Anxiety, shortness of breath and muscle pain, let me help you regain your health and feel like yourself again, using a safe and Natural treatment plan to get you back on track to wellness.
We focus Medicine on Health and Healing rather than Disease and Treatment. Human Beings are more than physical bodies.
Medicine should be healing oriented and take into account the whole person, (body, mind and soul) as well as all aspects of a person's lifestyle.
SPECIALTY AND FOCUS
My philosophy is to provide compassionate care that not only focuses on relief of anxiety and suffering but to help patients return to activities that give them quality of life and to do so in the least invasive manner.
