The gatekeeper is so so so RUDE! Couldn’t tell if it’s purposeful or she’s just not bright but I won’t bother them ever again because her attitude was so bad. They don’t take insurance. They want 300-400 out of pocket per visit, but when I tried to speak to someone educated in medicine to see if this was the right move as visits tests and supplements add up in cost quickly, she refused to let me. Don’t waste your money on a medical practice like this!!! If they aren’t willing to answer a few basic service questions, they aren’t legit.
I live in Bend Oregon and have never personally been to the clinic here, but had an amazing experience which I believe shows the real compassion and thoughtfulness of the people who work there. I recently had an order of mine shipped to them by the mistake of FedEx. Ironically it was an order for an immunity supplement I’ve been taking for some time now. Long story short, FedEx wasn’t much help leading me to have to reorder my product. Before I could do so, I got a call from the clinic telling me not only did they ship it out on their dime, but sent it priority mail…… what!? I can’t say how much I appreciate it! In these crazy times it’s nice to have people do such a kind deed. Thank you, and even though I’ve never shopped at your facility, I will in the future.
I called to inquire about seeing the “holistic” Dr about receiving a medical exemption for wearing a mask. The receptionist was very rude and spoke like she believed I was crazy. Apparently this practice doesn’t believe the hundred of legitimate scientific references saying that masks offer no protection against infectious disease, but there is significant evidence of respiratory interference promoting illness. They are believers of $cience, not science.
Thanks to Dr. Janes' prolotherapy treatments, my knee replacement has been cancelled and formerly unstable gimpy knee is busy bicycling this summer. I couldn't even walk a couple of months ago. Thank you so very much.
The provider I chose is caring and listened to my health issues with compassion. She took a holistic approach to finding out the root cause of my hair loss. I am so happy to have found them!
I have been seeing Dr Lamson for a few years now. He is brilliant, competent, honest, caring and through. He is truly one of the last of his kind. Dr Lamson has been an amazing support throughout my cancer journey and I feel beyond fortunate to have him on my team. For anyone looking for life long healing...especially for gut health, autoimmune and cancer, he is your answer.
This Clinic Is This Ambassador's Medical Clinic, I Use It Because They Are Great People...
Excellent! Only wish there were more MDs like him! Dr. Wright cured me of carpal tunnel in 1985 with a supplement routine, no drugs or surgery. More recently, I avoided a knee replacement by following his supplement protocol for osteoarthritis. If interested, it is available on youtube.
Be prepared to spend thousands of dollars in this place in a very short time. The doctor's rates rival those of attorneys and they try to get you in there regularly. Then they send you next door to their dispensary to spend another $300 or so on supplements. I saw people loaded up with way more than I had; I can only imagine how much they were spending. It is incredibly easy to spend $600 to $800 PER VISIT. Everything is out of pocket, they do not take insurance.At one point, I needed a new prescription for HRT. My doctor REFUSED to give it to me until I had a phone conversation with her. This consisted of her telling me dosages and how to apply it, all of which were on the labels of the prescriptions. For this 13 minute conversation I was charged $89. The office manager said she "went to bat" for me and tried to get me a 10 minute appointment for $60 instead but the powers that be were having none of it and I was forced to pay the higher amount. They literally held my prescription hostage for $89. I was stunned by their greed.They also insist their tests are superior. She had me do a $210 saliva test for hormones, insisting it was better than blood testing. (Search this for yourself; I could find nothing that said saliva tests were superior to blood tests for anything but cortisol.) The $210 was out of pocket, if I'd done blood work, it would have cost me about $25 through insurance. I did another test for allergies, again not covered by insurance and costing $300. The problem is, if you haven't eaten a food for a long time it won't show up as an issue. So, it's really not a terribly helpful test, although it is terribly expensive.I then did a stomach acid (Heidelberg) test because she had it on her list of things to do. After I spent $220 on that, I was told it's not a very useful test.They have ZERO interest in controlling costs. JUST to get my hormones tested and a new prescription was $500. The test was $210, the unnecessary conversation was $89 and the hormones were $195. This after I told my doc I was taking the money I was paying her out of my retirement funds.The most bizarre thing is, the doc now insists and I mean insists I need a vaginal ultrasound before she'll further address my hormone issues. This despite the fact that because of the HRT she has put me on, I now have headaches, insomnia, and severe dry eye. Her rationale for the ultrasound is she needs to "see if there have been changes to my endometrium". Except she has NOTHING TO COMPARE IT TO. She then told me she was sorry, but she can't prescribe me any further hormones until I give her an UP TO DATE vaginal ultrasound, as if that is something you just do yearly, as opposed to a diagnostic tool for things like irregular bleeding.I did find a Swedish study on line that could find no discernible difference in the endometriums of women who were on HRT and those who were not.So, she's telling me to go get an unnecessary ultrasound that will cost me $450, then come see her which will cost me another $300. BEFORE SHE WILL LIFT A FINGER TO HELP ME WITH THE ISSUES THE PRESCRIPTIONS SHE GAVE ME HAVE CAUSED SHE WANTS ME TO SPEND $750.I will give her this. She did diagnose me with candida, which led me to a book called Eat Wheat by John Douillard. The book isn't really about eating wheat, but it does lay out a really good case for the fact that if there are all these foods you can't eat and you used to be able to, it's because you have issues with your entire digestive system which can be addressed. As opposed to the Tahoma Clinic, which promotes the idea that you just need to take HCI for the rest of your life.I really wish I had read Eat Wheat BEFORE I dropped around $3,000 at the Tahoma Clinic. I'm convinced it's just a giant money making machine. Proceed at your own risk. You've been warned.
My wife and I have been patients of Dr Wright and now Dr Sherman for almost 20years. We have always had great care and are in great health due to their protocols.
What a Pleasure to have Dr. Wright's complete attention bringing all the knowledge and skills of his many decades of focus! We have discarded all the medicines that had simply complicated my husband's conditions as he went down hill over the years and replaced them with the nutrients he was missing! The extreme care to examine thoroughly and listen intently which Dr. Wright uses is unparalleled. Great facility with happy competent staff, too!
I have had Crohns disease with Colitis since 2012. I saw a traditional doctor and got Remicade treatment which was working. I decided to go off the harsh meds to see if I could stay in remission naturally so I sought the help of Dr. Russell at Tahoma clinic. Dr. Russell is very thorough. The treatment plan she put me on is working well and would probably even work better if I would totally go off my trigger foods. I highly recommend her and the Tahoma Clinic.
Went there last year for chronic headaches. Had to pay $289 up front and ended up getting placed with one of the staff that looked to be well beyond retirement age. Mostly on the basis of dry skin he concluded that I had a gluten sensitivity. Didn't conduct any testing even though I was willing to pay for it. Than the fun really started. Sent emails and left voice mails through his assistant which were never returned. Scheduled a phone appointment which he did not keep. Finally got testing at a naturalpathic clinic in Lynnwood which has been in business for around 3 decades (and they even accept insurance not to mention terrific customer service). The results of two separate tests they conducted showed that gluten was not an issue. Of course this gentleman blew off the results of those tests stating they were vastly inferior to the tests conducted at the Tahoma Clinic. I offered to pay out of pocket to take their tests but by that time I guess I had hurt the old fellow's feelings and he refused my offer. I contacted the founder via two letters but never received a response. The first letter explaining what happened and the second letter asking for my money back.
