"Lauren, thank you for your part in the exceptional care I received and will receive at PIM. I am so glad you have joined the practice. Integrative care is truly the answer to transforming this breast cancer survivor into her strongest, healthiest self! Thank you also for your seminar on GI health. Your presentation style is enlightening and engaging, and I look forward to future talks."
“I was referred to this practice by both Dr. Sasson at Shady Grove Fertility and my acupuncturist, Meredith Murphy. We experienced three unexplained pregnancy losses and the standard tests my doctor performed all came back fine, so I was looking for a provider who looks deeper for root causes. We started working with Lauren Houser and she's been wonderful. I really appreciated the time she took to learn our history and the customized step-by-step plan she developed for us. She had us try different things and do incremental testing to try and determine the root cause for our losses. Through a combination of dietary changes, additional supplements/vitamins to address micronutritional gaps, and medication for my thyroid, we got to welcome our baby girl, Yuna, into this world on 8/8/18. While we are not sure which of the factors helped influence the successful outcome this time, I strongly believe Lauren helped me improve my health overall and it's a complex system that appreciates all the improvements. We've been recommending this practice to our friends and family for any number of health improvement reasons and are so glad we found such caring medical professionals, who look deeper within to find solutions for their patients. Thank you so much!”
