Our patients are so wonderful...
The wonderful AIM staff are very helpful and caring, with attention to detail - I truly love the whole team! I highly recommend AIM for anyone needing a medical team who will treat the entire body while looking for the basic causes of medical challenges - you won't be disappointed!
Dr. Belt recently treated me for a terrible reaction to mold toxicity. It took us a couple visits to decipher what was making me so sick but thanks to her extensive knowledge and persistence, she figured it out. I was prescribed a supplement & vitamin therapy program which worked wonders; feeling so much better and my energy is back! I would definitely recommend AIM to anyone in need of medical care. The staff is also wonderful, kind, caring and always willing to help with any questions or concerns.
