Dr. David Smithson
“ My BodyLogicMD practice gives me the opportunity to make a greater impact on my patients’ health, by taking a more proactive approach to address underlying issues and help prevent disease further down the road, rather than merely treating the patient on a symptomatic basis. In addition, I now have more time to work with my patients individually to focus on their individual needs and develop a customized wellness regimen that suits them best.”
