Practice Closing

After 31 years of practicing both Naturopathic and Allopathic medicine I have decided to step back from private practice to focus on my own physical and mental health more fully. I have accepted a position that meets this need. Last business day was October 31st 2017. I was unable to find a colleague to take over my practice. I have learned an incredible amount from treating so many patients over all these years and I hope I have been able to share this experience for the benefit of every one of you. 

Medical Records

Medical records will be maintained. The best way to obtain your records is to email the practice website progressivehealthri with your request and the address you wish them sent to. There will be no fee for the computer printout of care summery and visits since 2015. We will not be able to 're-disclose' other provider's records. 


I have been in touch with the following providers who have agreed to evaluate and except your care if they feel this is appropriate. Also included is general medical referral information. For compounded medications you can also contact the pharmacy you use as they are aware of the other medical providers that have similar medications compounded.
