“Hello, I'm Dr. Hamada. As a board certified clinical nutritionist, licensed doctor of chiropractic and Institute for Functional Medicine certified practitioner, my skill set is focused to assist you in reclaiming your health and vitality through addressing the underlying root cause(s) of your dis-ease versus treating symptoms. With 20+ years of clinical experience, I still resonate with Thomas Edison's vision of healthcare when he said, "The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease".
