Today I am enjoying restored health and a return to a full life because of the care and insights of Dr. Karissa Walton. For that reason, I would like others to learn of my experience and understand the value that I believe Dr. Karissa brings to our community. As we grow older, Father Time takes his toll and persistent pain and immobility can become a dark tunnel with no end in sight. I am 78 years old and lead an active life, but was experiencing months of continuous shoulder pain that darkened my days and held me captive to sleepless nights. During that time, I endured this condition without relief despite numerous creams, physical therapy, and visits with medical doctors and chiropractors in two states. And yes, there were short-lived shots and prescriptions given by conventional medical doctors. Desperate for answers and resolution, I was referred to a new doctor in Prescott, Arizona who practices naturopathic medicine. Where others failed, Dr. Karissa found answers and remedies after an initial in-depth consultation that lasted 2 hours. In that time, she diagnosed a cyst under my shoulder blade that was pressing on a nerve generating severe pain and immobility. Once removed and after some physical therapy, I am free of pain, have restored mobility, and once again experience restful nights. In ensuing sessions, Dr. Karissa gained insights into the discomfort of my rheumatoid arthritis and a developing pre-diabetic condition. Her current treatment regimen has me once again feeling energetic and ready to take on the challenges of everyday living. She is particularly passionate about ensuring the health and well-being of the elderly. There are lots of words that I could use to describe the care and insights of this remarkable healer. Simply stated, Dr. Karissa was the light at the end of what seemed to be a dark and unending tunnel for me. I highly recommend both her office and mobile services. Thank you, Dr. Karissa, for being a physician and a friend.
