What was your reason for coming in to see RHMC & Dr ACE?
I reached out to Dr. ACE after six years of battling chronic hives and a year of various symptoms that were making my day-to-day life a struggle. I was also struggling with getting pregnant and wondering if I might be infertile. Traditional doctors repeatedly misdiagnosed me with lupus or other various autoimmune diseases or didn’t diagnose me at all. I was at my wit’s end and called Dr. ACE upon a friend’s recommendation.
In what ways has this care benefited you?
Through care with RHMC, I am now symptom free and I have ways moving forward to care and treat any potential hive-flare ups. I am also healthy enough that I was able to get pregnant! As I write this I am joyfully 21 weeks pregnant and Dr. ACE is walking with me through my first pregnancy and I know I am in good hands. She knows my body and health and she truly cares for my baby! So not only do I feel healthy, but I have tools for living healthier and feeling better for years to come.
Why would you recommend Dr ACE and RHMC?
Dr. ACE listened to my whole medical and mental history. She made connections between my current health and events in my past like appendicitis (who knew all these things were connected?). Everything was always explained so I could understand. Dr. ACE also presented care to me as an option- there was never only one way to tackle something. She also understood what my body would and would not handle well. I love not being pumped full of antibiotics and other strong medications. I was given natural lifestyle remedies and, when necessary, additional herbs and supplements to help treat my symptoms. Dr. ACE really listened to me and worked with my specific preferences and unique body to give me the best course of action.
