I recommend Nourish Medical Center to everyone I know!! Dr. Starr has completely changed my life. I first met her earlier this year after finding out I had the E. Coli bacteria. Not only did she relieve my pain and discomfort from the E. Coli, but she did comprehensive tests to check my overall health because of digestive issues I mentioned I had in the past. To my surprise, I had been living with many food sensitivities, poor adrenal gland function, and leaky gut without my knowledge. Not only is Dr. Starr healing me, she is doing it naturally!! She has a holistic approach and has taught me the food we eat is so important to our mental, physical, and emotional health. I can't thank her enough for all she has done, and I look forward to each visit.
I've been working with Dr. Ostroot at Nourish since February for allergy and sinus issues. They were getting worse over time including migraines, nausea, etc. I was struggling to concentrate, headaches a couple times a week and low energy. Right before I came to Nourish I was seeing an ENT. They ran a CT scan, but it didn't come back with anything significant (slight deviated septum), but nothing that was major. The ENT doctor recommended that I work on getting the inflammation and swelling down. I was so happy to hear that, but at the same time baffled as to why I felt like I did.Dr. Ostroot listened to my background and took time to understand my overall goals. He ran a few tests to get a better picture of what was going on. Once my results came back, he explained everything and helped create a plan of what we needed to work on. He is fully committed to helping me get my health back on track. I still have some work to do, but I like the progress so far. I also like that they can do blood draws in the office, which is convenient. I can definitely say that I feel SO MUCH BETTER than I did a year ago. I am very thankful for Dr. Ostroot, Grant (phlebotomist) and Nourish in general!
We started seeing several of the Drs with Nourish Medical Center for our entire family and each visit has been a great experience. Dr. Elana Roumell is a fantastic resource for pediatrics; I highly recommend working with her and utilizing her Kids Medicine Kit. * First, the office is child-friendly; my 1-year-old can play with toys provided. * Second, she is so easy to talk with, asks great questions, and I never feel rushed. * Her guidebook outlines how to best use various natural medicine remedies and homeopathics, including dosage for different ages from babies to teen, and when to call a doctor. I love the information provided and how easy it is to use. * In addition to the guidebook, the Medicine Kit is fantastic. I have had every intention to continue building out my medicine cabinet and so appreciate having everything already pulled together. * I have never felt like they are pushing testing or products; Dr Roumell keeps costs in mind so I don't feel like I'm spending money on things we may not need. * Lastly, she provided extremely thorough details around vaccinations, including recommendations to best optimize health if getting shots, so we are able to make decisions we are comfortable with.Overall, Dr. Roumell, Grant, and the rest of the staff have been so easy to work with, make our entire family feel welcome at Nourish, and confident that we are getting the best care for our complete health. I highly recommend them, especially for pediatric care!
Dr. Martinez has been an answer to prayer in treating both of my daughters. She is an excellent doctor and an equally amazing real person. I cannot thank her enough and would highly recommend her. I love that she treats my daughters holistically. We travel 90 minutes away to see Dr Martinez; well worth the trip. Sincerely, Donna Hebert-Pfeiffer.
Dr. Elana Roumell is by far THE BEST naturopathic Pediatric DR. I'm so beyond thankful to have found this beautiful center. Upon walking in it's airy, light and refreshing, such a welcoming place for healing of ALL ages. I can not get over the cleanliness of the center and the gorgeous vibes.The staff is also so welcoming and amazing with children. Elana has a true heart to help heal children and she truly cares. She is one of the only DRs who responds to questions honestly and truthfully so you can make informed decisions for your family. While in her office she takes time to listen and be able to understand so she can best help. My children love going to see her, they get to play with toys in her office while we are able to sit and discuss our struggles. She is diligent in responding to emails so quickly. I've never felt more taken care of by other DRs because it's actually her taking time to answer all the email questions beyond the initial appointments. She has given me the tools to be able to feel confident in treating my children at home for regular sicknesses. And she even has a private FB group for patients to connect and share questions and successes to help heal our children. They also have an on-site lab where testing can be done immediately, which for a family with young kids is so ideal. I can not say enough amazing things about Elana and Nourish Medical Center. This is truly a one stop healing center for families and they offer so many resources beyond normal places. You won't be disappointed and your well being will thank you for visiting!!!
I can't say enough great things about this medical center, I feel like I truly have my life back. I first saw Dr. Roumell but she realized that my case was a little trickier than she thought so she referred me to Dr. Martinez. To me this said a lot because other doctors can be too prideful to say hey I've done as much as I think I can and it would benefit you to see someone else. Dr. Roumell got the ball rolling in my healing no doubt about it and then Dr. Martinez just kicked it up a couple notches. I am so grateful I live in the area to be able to see her on a regular basis. I will continue to be treated by them and once I decide to start a family of my own Dr. Roumell will be my go to!
I was getting sick a lot and went to see Dr. Cory Ostroot over at Nourish. Immunity was my initial concern but after running a bunch of tests we found that many of my vitamin levels were off as well. He came up with a simple approach to help make some adjustment to diet and vitamin intake and I haven't really been sick since. Its been a year. Highly recommend.
BEST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER HAD!!! I am a tricky case and my body is very sensitive and I have had lots of medical issues over the years. I have come to distrust doctors, as about half the time they don't help at all and can be arrogant, and at times have actually done harm to my body instead of helping me. I even went to the naturopath Dr. Bronner Handwerger in San Diego who put me on hormones that caused damage to my body to the point where I called medical malpractice attorneys to sue him. But I decided to give the naturopathic route another chance. And boy am I glad I did! Dr. Adrienne Stewart has changed my life. I mean literally! She put me on a thyroid medication that has made all the difference. Before I was depressed and hardly able to function. Now I remember what it is like to be happy and healthy! She also is compassionate, very knowledgeable, and seriously is my best advocate I've ever had for my health (other than myself of course!). I also ended up doing life coaching with Crystal at Nourish and was amazing. And the last thing I want to say about Nourish is that I hate having my blood drawn and I'm very nervous about it, and Grant does a great job drawing blood at the Nourish office. I'm so sad I moved away from San Diego because I love all of these guys at Nourish. I might even continue having Dr. Stewart as my doctor and just do Skype sessions which she allows for her patients that are not in the San Diego area. This is my favorite doctor of all time. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Adrienne Stewart and Nourish Medical Center!
I have done extensive research and tried to narrow down a reliable and professional holistic center. I was referred to this center, after months of research and watching their educational videos I scheduled an appointment. I saw Anthony Frank for my initial appt. and it was great! Their collaborative and professional approach was stellar and it made me feel confident to collaborate and work together to find the root of my problems, rather than just treating the symptoms w drugs as it is seen with conventional doctors.
I've never felt so empowered after my 1 hour analysis, not only with education of the why but with the solutions via customized plans and supplement aids. After 1 month I already feel the difference in the different problems I was treated. I now have a followup appt. to analyze the different tests I did during my visit. Not only my doctor was friendly and helpful but also the rest of the staff there which I talked to. I HIGHLY recommend their practice to anyone. I wish they would extend their practice and or teach others their magic. The world would be a better place if they did 🙂
I Cannot say enough good things about Dr. DJ. This past year my gastrointestinal/ skin issues spiraled out of control. I came to Dr. DJ in tears desperate for some relief. It has only been a month and I am already seeing HUGE improvements. Dr. DJ believes in addressing the root of the cause and not just treating symptoms. I cannot wait to see the continued improvement and highly recommend this establishment and Dr. DJ!!
Dr. Elana Roumell is wonderful! Our entire family goes to see her, and she has been so valuable. She is incredibly easy to talk to, and truly cares about your well-being. I always feel she is being honest when I ask questions and I feel I can make informed decisions with the information she shares. She has been supportive in helping me heal from various issues, as well as an amazing resource to be sure I keep my family and myself healthy. Her office is beautiful, and she is so kind and patient with us, especially when I have to bring both my children to the appointments (which can get hectic!). In addition, I love her Nourish Kids Medicine Kit! It has been so helpful to have natural remedies I can use at home to treat my children with things like the common cold. It has been very empowering and I cannot thank her enough!
I am so thankful I found Nourish Medical Center. I was on a quest for a good doctor who could help my 12 year old. After failed attempts with our pediatrician and endocrinologist, he had increasing symptoms of hypothyroidism and newer symptoms of IBS that started to effect his (and my) daily life so severely that I was on a frantic mission to find a doctor that could go in-depth with us and QUICKLY. Having a child that just seems to be getting sicker with no clear answers is so frightening. We met with Dr. Stewart and I told her all of my concerns and nothing I said was dismissed or considered unimportant. This was such a relief! Dr. Stewart ordered tests that other doctors never ordered, and I will be eternally grateful that she did. She created a plan to both help his thyroid immediately as well as a plan find the source of the problem. We are currently in the process of figuring out his diagnosis, but ALL of his IBS symptoms have disappeared and the thyroid medication that Dr. Stewart prescribed him has resulted in labs that have greatly improved over a three month period. I could not be more grateful.
Arnold B.12 yrs ago, I was diagnosed with Dyshidrotic Eczema from my Dermatologist which resulted in blisters on my hands, rashes on my elbows, arms, leg, back and neck that never healed. During this 12 yrs, I've consulted with 6 of the best Dermatologists in San Diego for their feedback. They all told me, it was contact dermatitis and "there is no cure for Eczema". I kept getting prescribe Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 Clobetasol, Triamcinolone and Fluocinonide ointments and creams. They would work for the a 2 week period but during the off time, I'd get new flareups on different parts of my body. This was very upsetting and the last Dermatologist at Scripps gave me a brochure for Dupixent and told me to read up on it and schedule an appointment if I was interested. HECK NO!!I suffered on and off for 12 long years and it got to the point where none of the topical steroids and even Prednisone were no longer effective to clear up my skin. I also got a food allergy tests and found out that I was allergic to Nickel. My wife has helped tremendously by switching all of our household products to natural and chemical free products. She then reached out to Dr. Jess on IG and she suggested Nourish Medical Center, specifically Dr. DJ Sims. It wasn't until my first consultation that she told me that my eczema was caused by bad/leaky gut health and it can help naturally reduce my eczema, even get rid of it. I also had adrenal fatigue which resulted in me losing 30 lbs. I was always tired since the topical steroids have suppressed my adrenal glands. FINALLY SOME HELP!!!!Dr. Sims put me on a strict elemental diet for 2 weeks. Then a protein and vegetable diet, added fish oil, L-Glutamine, Zinc, 10 day gut cleanse, Vitamin D3 for the next 2 months. I'm on month 6 (started my cleanse from topical steroids on Nov 18, 2019) and during this time, I researched about the long term Red Skin Syndrome and Topical Steroid Withdrawl recovering time. I prepared myself that I'll have to suffer for the next year or so. My whole body did not like the lapse of topical steroids and after a month my body was covered with rashes. My hands were red and swollen. I kept my skin hydrated with un-petroleum ointment as well as other products to help keep my cool my skin. It helped keep my skin hydrated to a certain degree but it was very uncomfortable when I put my clothes on. I absolutely hated every minute of it. Thanks to Dr. Sims, she suggested to try the Kamedis Eczema Therapy cream and wash. This cream has helped out my skin tremendously. The red patches all over my body have shrunk and dried out. Some of the deep eczema wounds are just a darker pigment of my skin and most importantly, my skin is no longer red, burns and itches. I can actually take a regular shower with luke warm water now, I can finally sleep 8 hrs w/out waking up every 2 hrs to re-apply the un-petroleum ointment and most importantly, clothes feel comfortable on my skin. I'm about 6 months into this journey and even though I'm not fully healed, my body is 98% better.. THANK YOU Dr. DJ SIMS and Nourish Medical Center for all of your help!! Not everyone's body is the same and thanks to your precision approach by diagnosing and treating each person individually. I'm finally on the path to full and natural healing.

I have had a debilitating health issue for the last 2 years. My Primary Care physician performed tests and sent me to specialists and while they all acknowledged I had a health issue no one had any suggestions that would help me. My final contact with my PC was him telling me to 'get out of my head' and I would be OK. I felt abandoned and helpless, then I found Nourish and Dr. Gelman. In the first consultation she told me there were many things we could try that she felt would help me. I had a blood draw and the results came back showing I had deficiencies in several areas. Dr. Gelman suggested several supplements. Within 6 weeks I have seen an 80% improvement in my health. Dr. Gelman's knowledge and enthusiastic support really helped me. Dr. Gelman offered me HOPE. That was something my Primary Care Physician and specialists could not do. Dr. Gelman has given me back my life.
This place is so soothing and incredible!! The amount our knowledge in these professionals is overwhelming and yet they are able to put things in an easy to understand language. I was finally able to find out what was going on in my own body, get healthier, reduce pain and inflammation, and lose weight! (The weight loss wasn't even my intention haha) Dr. Starr is so sweet and smart and understanding yet determined to investigate every last possibility to help you feel your best. My sister and I both see her as a result of this! I would not trust anyone or myself to any other place.
I'm very impressed with Dr. Elana and the level of service she has provided to all 3 of my kids. She answers emails promptly, is a caring and very sweet doctor who understand the body as a whole. She also has an awesome IG page that I follow and really like. She's helped my daughter sleep through the night with homeopathy. That is the biggest difference so far. Other stuff we are working on my sons allergies and my daughters gut. Will update in a few months as to the progression. So far, I like her. She's clear, direct and honest.
I started seeing Dr Cory a month ago. My first impression was nothing but warmth, compassion, and patience. I told him my symptoms and he listened with open ears and no judgment. I also went to his Breath-work Circle which is every Thursday at 6pm in La Jolla, and it was a very powerful, eye opening experience. Highly recommend Dr Cory at this center! Front desk were also extremely kind and welcoming! So happy I switched doctors!
I recommend Nourish. I treat with Dr. Martinez and she is sharp. This is the first and only Naturopath who recommended supplements that did not adversely affect me. The cost of the tests, treatment and fees to see Dr. Martinez are a wise investment. Faith and Mimi are kind and helpful. Mimi is an incredible phlebotomist. I wish I had found Nourish long ago and I'm so thankful for the blessing. Thankful to God and the entire team at Nourish.
Crystal, has been one of the best decisions I have taken. Her sessions are super positive, enthusiastic, and game-changing. I can't believe how far I have come. My brother asked me the other day what have I been reading!? I have noticed such an amazing and positive change. With her by my side I am so confident and full of inner peace. I could not recommend her enough!! Thank you thank you.Dr. Stewart is also amazing and game changing. I love her natural approach to everything. Nourish is the BEST.
Working with Elana by email and phone has been great. I started listening to her podcast and was super impressed with her knowledge and passion for Perinatal care both for mommas and baby's. She is helping me with pre-conception counseling, and I feel like I'm in REALLY good hands! Such stress relief to get my questions answered before trying to start a family! I trust her to share the most current research while using a naturopathic approach.
I don't know why it has taken me so long to write a review but better late than never.So I had been having stomach problems for about two years. Every doctor that I went to just said the standard, give up dairy and bread, do paleo, take some probiotics. All without knowing the problem or even pretending to think about the cause. I was so frustrated but eventually decided to give it one more try and maybe I had just been looking in the wrong place. I started looking for a Naturopath, which to be honest I didn't know much about so I am so glad I followed through with it. I came in to see Dr. Ramson. Wow, she is a beautiful soul and amazing doctor in one. She actually tried to look for the problem before spitting out solutions, she cares about you as a person and not going to lie after a couple visits I think I would come in for a consult just to talk to her for an hour haha. Well back to my stomach problems. Through our time together we found that i had SIBO. We did a treatment and while I don't know just yet if I am SIBO free, I am doing so much better. I have way more "normal life" moments now that SIBO had taken from me. Not only that but she has helped me feel more in control of my overall health.I am leaving San Diego and so sad that I can't take Dr. Ramson with me. I hope I can find another doctor that compares to her.
I feel so lucky to have found Nourish and Dr. Starr Ramson! This December I will have been under the care of Dr. Starr for almost 2 years. She is a wealth of knowledge and is always willing to go the extra mile for her patients. She has spent hours and hours of her time researching the best supplements and treatments for my various health concerns over the years. Dr. Starr has helped me eliminate candida overgrowth in my body as well as balance my hormones. Sorry, this might be TMI but I always have to keep it real. I had serious PMS with extremely heavy periods lasting 7 days...as well as major breast tenderness that would begin at least 2 weeks before menstruation. I was also very anemic because of the amount of blood I would lose every month. Imagine being miserable for 2 to 3 weeks out of EVERY month?! After some testing and about 3 months of taking the recommended supplements I was a different woman! My periods now last 3-4 days and the hemorrhaging is so much lighter than what it used to be. I also no longer have breast tenderness! So balancing my hormones has helped in more ways than one. Dr. Starr and I are now currently working on my energy levels and weight struggles (i.e. my adrenal glands and thyroid). Please keep in mind that alternative medicine isn't a quick fix...so don't expect immediate results. Getting to the root of your health issues takes time, but it is SO worth it. I've had so many "ah ha!" moments on this health journey with Dr. Starr and I'm very grateful that the universe led me to her as she is an amazing ND and has changed my life for the better.
I am so grateful for Dr. Cory Ostroot and the Nourish team! When I came to Nourish in late 2018 I was having serious mouth pain from a condition called Oral Lichen Planus. It is an auto immune condition which was causing a severe burning pain in my mouth. I could barely eat at times and was at a loss of what the cause was. I went to several mouth specialists and all said it is extremely hard to identify the cause of this auto immune condition. My wife then suggested I work with a Naturopath at Nourish. She saw that Dr Ostroot had extensive experience with auto immune conditions. Right out of the gate I really liked working with Dr Cory. He asked great questions and I could tell he was being very methodical in trying to figure out the cause. He suggested we order a heavy metals test which none of the other doctors suggested. The test came back and I had extreme levels of mercury in my system. Dr Cory felt strongly the auto immune condition was caused by the mercury and if we remove it from my immune system it would rebound and the condition would fade away. After 6 months of following a chelation protocol I did another test and the mercury had been reduced significantly but was still moderately high and I still had pain. I continued with the protocol for another several months and just got tested again. The mercury levels are now in normal range and I have no mouth pain. Thank you Dr Cory and Nourish!
I went to see Dr. DJ Sims for acne, because she is a skin EXPERT! I had struggled with acne starting in my teens and continuing into my early twenties. I had tried every topical product as well as medications, and my skin had only worsened over time. Dr. Sims was the first doctor to make me feel assured that she could get my skin to clear, and she did exactly that. She looked at every area of my health and guided me through the process of healing my gut, hormonal imbalances, and stress. She used lab testing to determine the specific dietary changes & supplementation I needed, and directed me to more intensive treatments such as colonics, skin peels, and micro-needling with PRP. My skin has immensely improved, and everyone with acne should see Dr. Sims!
I found Dr. Martinez in October 2014 and I am so glad I did! I was suffering from chronic infections and after many rounds of antibiotics within a few months, I knew I had to dig deeper and find a doctor that wouldn't just keep feeding me "band-aids" and prescriptions. Dr. Martinez knew exactly what to test for and boy am I glad she did. I have been infection/antibiotic free for a whole year now since following her instructions to heal my body. Although I was fairly overwhelmed with all of the not so amazing results of the tests, (Candida overgrowth, heavy metals, leaky gut) she knew exactly what to do and I felt relieved despite the news. She is SO supportive, uplifting, charismatic, and optimistic. She truly listens to all of my concerns/opinions/ideas and most definitely wants the absolute best for all of her patients. It is always such a pleasure to spend the time with her as well. I've never felt better! I have recommended her to a friend of mine and she is just as pleased.
Hi All! I want to thank Dr. Ostroot and the staff at Nourish Medical Center for helping with my recovery from a heart rhythm problem which conventional doctors said could only be resolved with a pacemaker. However with decades of experience using natural medicine to successfully treat a variety of conditions I rejected that pessimistic diagnosis. Dr. Ostroot agreed with me and has always been able to suggest tests that have helped determine the key factors related to my condition and recommend supplements to help heal, such as Hawthorn and Nattokinase which have been instrumental in my recovery. The wide variety of important health tests offered by Nourish Medical Center are very convenient and cost effective and Dr Ostroot was very helpful in his interpretation of the results pointing out things I could have easily missed. Perhaps most important is the positive attitude of Dr. Ostroot that recovery is possible without the need of prescription drugs or surgery. Finally, let me say that the staff at Nourish Medical Center are always friendly, efficient and very helpful and the online portal is very useful in exchanging information in a timely manner.
Thanks to everyone!
We love Nourish Medical. Dr Roumel has been great to work with, helping my son with his allergies and immunity issues. The entire staff is great to work with. I see Dr Jess and she has helped me tremendously. Highly recommend!
I want to thank Dr. Dejarra Sims for helping me get my life back! For years I have suffered with very heavy cycles and was recently diagnosed with uterine fibroids. I was told of ways to treat them through conventional medicine and was not ready to go that route because of the side effects and potential surgeries. I was determined to have them healed naturally and prayed to God for a solution that would heal them. God led me to Dr. DJ. She listened and led me to get various natural supplements that would begin to regulate my hormones and my cycles. My cycles have gotten better, my energy levels have increased, my body is healing and I've also been able to lose weight quickly! Before the supplement regiment I was having trouble losing weight even with diet and exercise it would fluctuate up and down. I thought it was just because I was getting older it was getting harder. But now that my hormones are getting regulated it has been much easier and the weight is falling off much quicker! I want to thank Dr. DJ again for her wisdom, knowledge, integrity, patience and caring heart for her patients!
I found out about Nourish Medical Center after coming across Dr. Jess on Instagram. She is a wealth of knowledge, so I was just interested in seeing where she practiced. During my research, I stumbled across Dr. Roumell's bio & read she specialized in peds. I just had a baby & decided to see Dr. Roumell for my daughter's general health & vaccination questions. This was the best decision for my daughter's & our family's health! If you want a more naturalistic, non-pharmaceutical approach to treating illness or ailments, Dr. Roumell is for you. If you want to stay on top of you & your child's heAlth in a gentle, holistic way, Dr. Roumell is for you.She is so passionate & caring, her enthusiasm to help you & your family makes you excited. My 15 month toddler has recently had an eczema flare & Dr. Roumell has helped get it under control & helped dig deep to try & prevent future flares & rule out triggers. I love how proactive she is! My family & I plan on staying with her & seeing others in the practice
It's hard to know where to start a review, because I have had so many practitioners in the last 30 years, treating me for everything from Epstein Barr, Systemic Candida, Mercury so high it was actually off the chart, Shingles, and a very large Root Canal infection. So obviously I wasn't feeling well when I came to see Dr Cory Ostroot at Nourish Medical Center. But during our conversation Dr Cory identified the underlying problem as possible Mold, so we did a test and it was mold !! Now six months later I'm feeling much, much better and younger due to the products recommended by Dr Cory. So I can highly recommend Nourish medical as a cut above the rest, I'm so grateful I found them.
For several years, we took our son (now 7 years old) to specialists for chronic, and sometimes severe eczema. They prescribed all sorts of pharmaceuticals that I refused to put on him due to black box cancer warnings, etc. I asked my allergist if he could see my son, and said he does not see children but that "he could look at him and tell he has food allergies." The problem was, he had been tested for food allergies by a pediatric allergist at Rady, and the results were negative. I started reading about food sensitivities online and eventually made an appointment with Dr. Gelman to do sensitivity testing. The test showed that he had the highest inflammatory response to eggs and almonds. Prior to that, I regularly fed him eggs and almonds thinking they were healthy. Within 1 month of removing these items from his diet, he was completely cured of this condition that had plagued him since he was a baby. Thank you Nourish!
Dr. Stewart is a God Send. I moved from NC to San Diego last year and suffer from Graves Disease. Moving meant I needed a new doctor. I had to fire an Endocrinologist in Solana Beach because her office staff would ignore my concerns and how I felt. I was frustrated because I was in this beautiful new city and could not get a doctor to take my thyroid concerns seriously. My sister recommended Nourish and bragged that Dr. Ostroot was amazing. I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Stewart due to her extensive knowledge of thyroid health. I was not disappointed. Dr. Stewart is so warm, welcoming, and non-judgemental. Every time I see her she welcome me with the biggest hug. The first appointment is detailed because she truly dives down into every aspect of your life. My first appointment was in March 2018 and in 6 months my thyroid levels are normal. They have not been normal for over 2 years. Dr. Stewart makes me excited about going to the doctor as I know that when I see her I will not get dismissed on how I feel. The entire office staff is extremely amazing. Glad I found this gem in San Diego.
Dr. Adrienne Stewart is such an amazing doctor! I've gone to so many doctors to try and figure out why I couldn't lose weight, why I was always bloated, low energy, ect. I've been having this problem since I was a teenager. I'm now 35. She first tested me for almost everything possible to make sure that I didn't have anything too serious, which gave me a peace of mind. We recently started focusing on the food that I was eating and problems with my gut. Within the past week, the weight is just falling of of me without barely even trying, and I don't feel bloated or puffy. I now know what foods I'm sensitive to because I took a test for that. I've gone to so many doctors, and Dr. Stewart actually sits down, and cares and listens to everything that you have to say. She figures out what is really going on in your body. Grant the lab tech, and Ashley the receptionist are also both very sweet and helpful! It is a little pricey, but def worth the investment if you care about your body and well being. It's nice to know what is actually going on inside of your body, and not just getting prescribed pills to cover up the problem. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place.
I am so very happy that I found Dr. Ramson and Nourish Medical Center. Everyone there is very warm and welcoming including the front desk and Grant the lab technician who I have seen several times. Shout out to Grant for making blood draws quick and painless, and for helping me sort out my insurance questions. I had been struggling for some time with a lot of strange, complicated symptoms that included extreme fatigue, dizziness, heart palpitations and tachycardia, anxiety and panic attacks, weird throat sensations/cramping, hair shedding, digestive issues, muscle pains, numb/tingling hands and feet and more. I landed in Urgent Care and the ER on several occasions but surprise surprise, no one could give me any answers. As a mom of 4 and a small business owner, I can't tell you how extremely distressing it is to not be able to take care of your children or even get out of bed. I lived in fear every day. I have always been holistic minded and taken care of myself and researched everything but I knew I was in over my head and needed help, and that a trip to Sprouts wasn't going to cut it. I knew I needed a whole body, integrative doctor to look at the whole picture and so I started looking for Naturopaths/Holistic Doctors. I found Nourish and I met Dr. Ramson. I immediately felt at peace in her presence and knew for a fact that we were going to figure this thing out. She has such a compassionate, gentle and kind spirit and really listened to me and made meticulous notes on every single symptom I had been experiencing. And I threw a lot at her. We decided to do a ton of testing and it gave us so many answers. I did end up with a diagnosis which is treatable, and in Dr. Ramson's view is also reversible. Everything I had been experiencing was connected. She gave me a detailed course of action that I am following that includes significant diet and lifestyle changes, and thyroid medication. I was extremely hesitant to take a prescription medicine but after doing my research and talking to Dr. Ramson I understood that my body really needed it, and I felt comforted that it was a more natural thyroid medicine, and different from what I might have been prescribed by a typical MD. It took years for this condition to develop and I realized my body desperately needed help to begin to heal. It's been a few months and I have to say that I feel SO MUCH BETTER! Every symptom I was having is either significantly better or is gone completely. But I am doing the work. It isn't always easy, but it's my health and I will do whatever it takes. The most important thing is that the numbers don't lie- my latest labs show all my numbers going in the right direction! Had I gone to a traditional medical doctor I know I would have just been given conventional thyroid medicine and told to take it for life and that my condition is permanent. I know I have a ways to go but I feel very confident that I am in the best hands at Nourish Medical Center and I know that Dr. Ramson will guide me through every step of the way. I cannot recommend this place highly enough! Thank you Dr. Ramson for all that you and your staff do. I have told you before that I know it must not be easy practicing medicine in the way that you do, it is in conflict with the standard medical model. But I want to tell you that there are people like me out there who desperately need you to keep doing what you do. It's such important work and you must know how much it is valued and admired. Thank you so much.Kathryn S.
Dr. Roumell seriously sets the standards for bedside manner. She made me and my son feel so genuinely cared for and taken care of, I could really tell I was in an experts hands. It's rare to feel this way in the medical field these days, where I usually just feel like a number that gets the generic run through. Dr. Roumell personalized our appointment and I could tell this is her passion and not just a job. She should be a role model for what medical attention should look like. I will also point out how accommodating and helpful Ashley as well as all the others at the front office have been. They were extremely professional and great at following up. She was able to move my appointments up twice as they were booked out for months (which now I understand) and was quick to call and respond to all of my needs. I am so impressed. This is a well running office with fantastic and happy people behind it. Thank you Nourish Medical!
I am so glad I came to Nourish Medical Center! I came in looking for to get pregnant and for a solution to unrelenting allergies, for which mainstream medicine has given me no explanation, despite 2 costly allergy tests. At Nourish, Dr. Stewart suggested a food sensitivity test, which ended up showing a few sensitivities. After only a week of removing these foods from my diet, my allergies went away completely. It has now been 3 months, and it is so great to be able to breathe again. I wish I had done food sensitivity testing years ago. While I am not yet pregnant, Dr. Stewart's warm style has made me feel very safe sharing intimate details of my life and health, which is helping to get to the root of the issue, and I am optimistic for the future.
I have so much on my mind right now that I would like to share about my experience that it seems hard to know where to start or how to put into words a feeling you get from working with this group. I was an emergency patient by all accounts being incredibly dehydrated, arriving on a Saturday and getting immediate attention though they do not typically do IVs on Saturdays. Doctor DJ was on staff and she could not have been cuter, sweeter, or more professional! She truly cared about me like I felt a family member would, I was literally in the throws on vomiting as she was getting my IV in and I did not feel a thing. Doctor DJ was tender and very informative. She researched with us while I was receiving fluids to helps us trouble shoot the issues we had been experiencing at home. She gave us amazing advice, amazing care and felt like a good friend by the time we were heading out. I truly appreciate this clean, beautiful facility and hope to work with her again in the future. Thank you for all you do!
Every morning since as long as I can remember, I would feel nauseas, get an upset stomach, and wouldn't be able to eat breakfast. It's something that I just learned to cope with. I've also dealt with unexplained fatigue and brain fog for the last 10 years. And in the last two years, I developed a rash around my eyes and struggled with very dry skin. My husband and I had been searching for a naturopath and came across Nourish Medical Center. The clinic is super clean, organized, and the staff is friendly. Now I will move on to doctor DJ...the doctor I had the absolute pleasure of working with!! Where do I begin with this woman!? She is so so kind, so respectful and looked out for me as if I'm her sister. We connected very deeply, especially after finding out we share the common faith of Christianity. She incorporated my faith into all of my visits and let me tell you, it's something I've really appreciated because my faith is the foundation of who I am. She put me on a liver cleanse, gave me some orders to follow at home such as skin brushing, sauna, etc. Then she collected blood work and found that I had some food sensitivities and gut issues. She had me eliminate those certain foods from my diet and put me on some supplements and vitamins. I have strictly followed all of her orders and take my supplements religiously and can I just say...I FINALLY know what it feels like to wake up in the morning and not feel like I'm going to puke. My energy is 10/10, I am so much more productive in my day to day life, my skin is hydrated again, and I don't have brain fog anymore!! I feel genuinely confused because I had been so used to these issues and now they're gone. I'm just truly thankful to Dr. DJ for the excellent care and support. You are an angel!
I would highly recommend anyone come in and see Dr. Stewart (and the great staff). She truly has been amazing at listening to my issues and helping me solve and manage my chronic stomach issues -- just in time for my wedding. My health insurance did not cover the visits, but it was well worth the money spent. I look forward to working with Dr. Stewart and managing my health and wellness.
Dr. Stewart is who I chose to see after reading specialties of everyone. I started seeing her a while back but waited on a review so I could give one that's more in depth. And it's really this simple, she's the best! In all the ways.. 1-Knowing what labs you need 2-Compassion to your situation 3-Getting the right supplement/treatment to you. And she, though not a counselor, helped me more than my counselor did during this time of my sad life situations. Which is totally unexpected when seeing someone for health care not emotional care. If I could give more than 5 stars to her I would! I also know someone who has gone to Dr. Star and had a great experience. I have to shout out to Ashley the front office manager, she is always so on it, and ready to help the staff and is always a happy smiling face to see and connect with. 5+ for the centerI also have been seeing Crystal Stone for coaching and left a review on her yelp about her magical ways!Thank you Nourish!
I am soooo very grateful for the kind, caring, intuitive skills, expertise and guidance I have received from Dr Martinez in my quest for improved health! Prior to going to Dr Martinez I endured repeated health problems for one unknown reason after another plus countless Dr visits when a friend of mine, whose family had already experienced healing with the help of Dr Martinez, encouraged me to also give this awesome Dr a try in hopes she could help me. AND, SHE HAS HELPED ME TREMENDOUSLY! She has persevered in her quest to discover the reasons and the remedies for my particular health challenges and the results have been amazing! I feel so much better not only physically but, mentally as well because of the possibilities in maintaining this improvement. There really are not enough ways to express my joy in getting to work AS A TEAM with such a knowledgeable professional where my best health is of utmost importance. She is a blessing to me!
I highly recommend Dr. Starr Ramson! I have seen many physicians and nobody else was willing to take the time needed to find out what's wrong with me! Not to mention, my symptoms were dismissed and misdiagnosed often, told I was simply depressed and prescribed harmful medications that would have changed me forever. I was suffering everyday until I met Dr. Starr! Today, I have renewed hope for a better life. She identified the root cause of my condition and has successfully treated me for multiple issues. I have never met any doctor who is so knowledgeable & passionate about her career. On top of everything, she is genuinely kind and patient. Thank you Dr. Starr, you are truly amazing!
