Placeres Naturopathic & Acupuncture
Hello! Thank you for stopping by. I am Dr Amanda Placeres and my approach is simple. As a Naturopathic Doctor, I am trained to integrate the best of evidence-based Natural therapies with the latest Medical Science, through comprehensive evaluations, physical exams and testing. This testing includes both conventional testings as well as the most advanced testing to date that allows me to really hone in and investigate what is happening on a biochemical, physiological level.Through comprehensive evaluations, physical exams and testing. This testing includes both conventional testings as well as the most advanced testing to date that allows me to really hone in and investigate what is happening on a biochemical, physiological level. I tell my patients that I am a “Numbers Doc.”What do I mean by that? Well, I don’t play guessing games. I want to see quantitative measurements through appropriate testing. If you have a problem, acute or chronic, I want to discover why. Let me be your Medical investigator, and get down to the real problem. Let me help you treat the underlying imbalance so that you can start to truly heal. It is my goal with all my patients to empower them to maintain their own health. It should not be your long-term goal to be on many supplements for the rest of your life. My treatments come in phases, providing only the supplements that are necessary to build you up and restore what was missing. Once we have corrected deficiencies (and discovered why they occurred) we move on to the next phase in health, maintaining balance. This process varies for each and every patient and along the way we may utilize other therapies to help augment the healing process.
Ashlyn Westling shares how her misdiagnosed health issues were solved!
Highly, Highly, Recommend Dr. Placeres!
I began seeing Dr. Placeres in December 2016 for a number of minor, but annoying, health issues that my primary care practitioner didn’t seem concerned about. In the time since I’ve been seeing her, I’ve had a chronic autoimmune issue pop up as well.
In summary, she is AMAZING! I really can’t say enough…She is the first doctor who actually listened to me and cared about the small stuff. She shares so much of her time and compassion with her patients (yes, she actually emails to check in on how I am doing – unheard of!!). She is amazingly skilled at both acupuncture and naturopathic medicine. She doesn’t just treat the symptom, she searches – diligently – for the root cause through testing and research. She creates a professional, yet profoundly warm and inviting atmosphere for her patients. She is incredibly smart and analytical, connecting the symptoms your body is sharing with you via both TCM and the best science of western medicine.
With herbs and acupuncture, she has taken my pain from a 6 or 7 (on a scale of 10) down to a consistent 2 in a much quicker time frame than any MD has ever done. I am so grateful that I found her and I highly, highly recommend her!!
