Lab Testing / Evaluations

Blood Test

 Dr. Amber Brooks, DC, MSN, CACCP, BCIP, RN is never concerned about diagnosing or labeling a symptom, but truly understanding the body as a whole and working with the patient to achieve their goals. It is important to know these methods are not exclusively for children with autism. As a matter of fact, every child should be examined as a whole person, looking at all the components of dysfunction and helping to work toward wellness.
