The patient also has a responsibility to share their concerns and participate in the healing process. Healing occurs only when there is this honest and respectful exchange between physician and patient.” Dr. Sherry offers a variety of services, including the naturopathic approach to patient care, therapeutic bodywork, health and wellness counseling, stress management, and more.
