Our unique individualized process even includes input from close family and friends and the online tracking of your most important concerns throughout the treatment process. In addition, we review and discuss your results so you are always involved in your progress, and your treatment. We firmly believe that, just like no two people are exactly alike, the best success comes from a fully personalized treatment program.
