Why Choose Choices in Health

Boulder’s urology and holistic health center is truly who we are.  As the name “Choices in Health” implies, we believe in offering patients informed choices. From alternative and holistic to conventional and surgical, we provide our patients with leading-edge medical information and work with them to come up with a treatment plan that is right for them.

Patient success is how we measure our achievement. We know we’re on the right track when patients answer “yes” to both of these questions:

  1. Do you feel healthier and happier?
  2. Is less of your day spent dealing with painful symptoms and fear?

We also recognize that every patient is different, and that a “one pill fits all” approach to medicine seldom works.

Our comprehensive treatment plans frequently include

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Supplements
  • Prescription medications
  • Diagnostic tests and procedures
  • Physical therapy

Ultimately, our goal is to have you smiling, happy, healthy — and best of all — dis-ease free.

The Choices in Health Promise

We don’t believe in magic pills or potions. Healing is a journey. And like all journeys, your healing will include peaks and valleys, breathtaking vistas and dark nights of the soul. They are all part of life.

We also recognize that no physician or clinic can help solve patients’ problems, heal their bodies, or make their symptoms go away — without a substantial commitment on the part of the patient.; however, we have repeatedly seen powerful healing occur when committed patients join forces with proficient practitioners.

We promise to walk beside side you on this healing journey and guide you along the way.  If you faithfully follow our protocols, commit to making new choices that initially might feel uncomfortable, and continue to reclaim your energy and vitality, you will see marked improvements in your health and wellness, a lessening of your symptoms, and a better quality of life.
