To All Our Amazing Patients:
Dr. Matt passed away peacefully Friday morning, August 23rd from a genetic heart condition. He was diagnosed February 15, 2013 with severe aortic stenosis. Matt chose no intervention. For the past four weeks, his symptoms worsened significantly each day. He went to the Emergency Room on Monday, August 19th. He was scheduled for a heart procedure Friday morning. He chose to pass prior to the procedure. He was very private and did not want any negative effect for anyone.
Dr. Cori Kennedy will be overseeing the care for all of you. She has all the same amazing standards as Matt.
We are in the process of teaching our special ways to Dr. Mary Reker. She will be a permanent addition to our staff in a few weeks.
Your patience and love through this transition is essential. Matt loved all of you. In Matt’s honor, a candle will always burn at SanTan Natural Medicine to remind us of the light he shared with all of us. If you would like to donate an unsented candle to the office in his memory, it would touch our hearts deeply.
At SanTan Natural Medicine in Chandler, Arizona, we are experts in offering patients specialized, alternative medical care. Our focus is on the patient not on the disease, so each treatment is individualized to meet the needs of the patient.
Our Naturopathic Physicians are carefully trained to provide services that consider the whole person. The philosophy has its basis in evaluating symptoms as signs by the body that a correction is necessary. Naturopathic Physicians spend a great deal of time with each patient to establish a relationship that allows the Doctor to best help the patient. The initial consultation will last 45 minutes to an hour. Each subsequent visit will last at least 30 minutes. This amount of time is necessary to establish a positive relationship between doctor and patient.
It is important to remember that you spent many years getting to the point where you are today. Natural Medicine will address the underlying causes of your symptoms by removing health obstacles to return your body to a higher state of health. These obstacles include eating habits, exercise habits, prescription, medications, stress, and lifestyle choices.
This process, though completely effective, may be slow. Our Naturopathic Physicians will commit to guiding you on a journey toward health. Our Doctors are passionate about the power of Natural Medicine.
At SanTan Natural Medicine our commitment to the Chandler/Gilbert/Mesa community is to serve in helping patients make health decisions that will change the course of their well being.
