Treating the Whole Child
Specializing in integrative and functional medicine, Mariel thinks outside of the box and looks for root causes of illnesses and health challenges.

A large part of her interactions with parents focus on diet and nutrition, emphasizing the body-mind-spirit connection.

Pediatric Health Care
Pediatric care is provided based on an evaluation of the individual child. Treatment is customized to meet unique health challenges and/or goals. Initial consultation will entail a thorough medical history and complete physical exam, as well as lab work/lab work interpretation if necessary.

Based on your child's health status, recommendations may include a combination of dietary changes and supplementation. In addition, other modalities such as intravenous (IV) therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, infrared sauna and neurofeedback may also be considered. When appropriate and if needed, pharmacological treatments/prescriptions can be ordered.

Assist your child in achieving improved health and wellness with specialized, compassionate pediatric health care.
