Kind Words from our Patients.
I went from having 10-12 migraines per month to none in the past two months I have been under the care of Dr. Chavers. That alone is worth shouting from the rooftop! However, that's just the beginning. My GI issues have completely been resolved as well. Having a physician that takes the time to listen & take an in-depth look at my health is life changing.
The insight you have given me in balancing my medications with my medical history and lifestyle choices has been life-changing! With your help I have increased my sleep from three hours each night to seven. Enough said on how effective your practice is and how much you have to offer your patients.
I am so beyond grateful for Foundations and the supplement plan Dr. Chavers put me on. I went from having horrible symptoms of a hypothyroid and hoshimotos to literally feeling like a new person in a couple short months. Don't know where I'd be without this place!
I visited several doctors with a list of complaints. Each doctor specialized in some small part of my body. After a few minutes in each office I was given a new prescription that carried with it expense and side effects. These prescriptions managed symptoms. Some of them worked reasonably well and others not at all. The final straw was a prescription from my dermatologist to treat psoriasis that cost $300 a month, would have to be taken the rest of my life and came with a book filled with many pages of warnings about side effects that included everything under the sun including death. If the drug worked I stood a chance of being a corpse with great skin.
After a lot of research, I discovered a new field of medicine with practitioners who believed in finding the root cause of a problem and healing the whole body. I eventually tracked down the closest practitioner I could find. Dr. Kyle Chavers. My experience and my wife’s experience with him has been everything we hoped for. After long conversation and many tests, we (I use we because I feel like we are a team working together on my wellbeing), determined that I had a genetic disorder that could easily be corrected with very safe and inexpensive special forms of B-12 and Folate. My many physical complaints have gone away and all of my test results have improved dramatically. I am especially pleased that Dr. Chavers and his team are all licensed professionals with all of the conventional knowledge and skill of any medical professional but also an advanced set of skills and knowledge that allows them to treat the cause and not just symptoms.
If I ever need any of the miracles of traditional medicine such as trauma treatment or replacement of a body part, I will be very glad that there are traditional practitioners but for treatment of chronic disorders that often have complex and obscure roots, I want Dr. Chavers and his team on my side.
I am so thankful to have found Dr. Chavers and Foundations Medical Center. I had been chasing a medical mystery for several years that had taken away much of my normal function and quality of life. After criss-crossing the country seeing specialists and experiencing many dead-ends, I started researching how to heal from the root cause instead of just covering up symptoms, which led to searching for a local functional medicine doctor after reading a book by Dr. Wahls. From the first moment I called Foundations and spoke to the other Dr. Chavers, to the front desk welcome with Mary, and then the actual doctor visits - in every interaction it was clear this was a place where patients are made to feel like people instead of numbers and doctors are true partners in your care. Dr. Chavers is truly committed to helping patients get well, versus traditional medical models expecting patents to just learn to live with symptoms. How refreshing it is to have a doctor who is up-to-date with the latest medical research and who is open to dialogue about testing and treatment options. Gone are the days when we had to travel out of state for quality medical care. My husband and I feel very fortunate to have a practice right here at home that combines top-notch medical knowledge alongside a compassionate approach to patient care. I have great hope and confidence that I will one day be fully functioning again, and it is a gift to have found such an innovative practice to help me in the journey to reach my goals.
I am 58 years old and have been a patient of Dr. Kyle Chavers for eight months and I feel better now than I have in years! Since childhood, I have suffered through multiple symptoms including bronchial asthma, allergies, gut issues and infections. Later into adulthood I developed endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, fibroids and excessive weight gain. This all ended with a total hysterectomy by the time I was 40 years old. By my late 40’s, my thyroid began petering out, leaving me with extreme fatigue, blood sugar issues, and multiple aches and pains. By my 50’s, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Knowing I needed serious help, I began looking for a doctor specializing in Functional Medicine. That is when I discovered Dr. Chavers. Under his care I have been treated as a whole person, not as a series of symptoms. He has helped me to discover that I have been suffering through several food intolerances and nutritional deficiencies that ultimately led to my gut issues and other problems. He helped me find the right supplements and dietary protocol to meet my individual needs. He has also helped me to balance my adrenals and adjust my thyroid levels to where I have been able to enjoy an increase in energy. I feel I am now well on my way to reaching a more balanced and healthier lifestyle that will take me well into the years ahead.
