Why Choose Desert Medical Care & Wellness?

Choosing us for your healthcare needs is an absolute honor; we work very hard keeping up to date with the latest and greatest, but without forgetting the importance of the relationship with your doctor.

In the days of self-service everything, poor customer service, HMO quality care we believe in service. I can’t tell you how many patients have told us how their doctor seems more pre-occupied with typing up their notes in their new electronic note taking system without making eye contact with you.

Don’t get me wrong, we love technology and we invest in our business on a regular business; many of our patients will notice how equipment changes in our office on a regular basis and that is because we always re-invest to get the absolute best results you deserve.

If you choose us, we will provide you a FREE consultation to see if we can even help you. We have countless patients who have been helped at our office after many failures at others; that does not mean that we can fix everyone even though some of our patients think we can.

We would love the opportunity to see if your case could benefit from our unique treatment, which is why we always start with a free consultation because we do not want there to be any cost to hold you up from even seeking our advice.

Our secret is this: Combining time proven methods while integrating new technology with our unique synergistic therapies for pain relief. Not everyone will need to follow all therapies and you may just need one, but for a difficult, chronic case this is often our secret.

Our Philosophy of Treatment at Desert Medical Care & Wellness

Structure demands function, thus if your condition is stemming from a true skeletal misalignment/postural syndrome we have special instruments and equipment to correct those postural problems. Treating muscle imbalances with manual therapy before any treatment is done every visit because it will make the treatment more painless but it will also have longer lasting effects.

For those who are arthritic, stiff, frail or just scared of getting “cracked” or “popped” we use instruments that will send a tiny shockwave into the joint that will gently loosen it up prior to mobilization by hand or instrument only for those who are nervous of getting “pop.”

If you are suffering from a disc problem, we have 3 types of machines that will help stretch out a swollen disc to alleviate pressure off those inflamed nerves.

To decrease your pain, there are a wide variety of lasers (cold and hot) and we also utilize the strongest one in the world for extra deep penetration. We also use Pulse Electro-Magnetic Frequency Therapy for chronic pain patients and are one of the Valley’s only providers for this type of therapy.

Practicing in a retirement community, we see the toughest cases and thus need to incorporate new and effective therapies to achieve great results. These results motivate the doctors to reinvest in education and technology when needed.

Technology doesn’t replace time proven therapies such as old fashioned rehabilitation to reinforce the corrections we make, deep tissue massage or Acupuncture which has been around for thousands of years. Acupuncture stimulates blood flow and has helped many cases that were complete failures with surgery, physical therapy and pain management.

Chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia lead to poor healing and cannot be corrected with drugs or a shot. Treatment must start by addressing the cause and starts from the inside while working on the outside.

We always evaluate the body as a whole rather than just looking at its parts like Western Medicine; Functional Medicine and Holistic Care looks at organ systems and evaluates how they work together. Rather than just prescribing a medicine to cover your symptoms, we want to correct the problem whether it is acid reflux and indigestion or that fact that your back hurts only after golf.

In both cases, something is obviously not working the way it should be and we must determine why you are getting reflux or why your back hurts after golf; one stems from poor diet and possibly a lack of enzymes, zinc or excess h.pylori and the other can stem from a poor swing fault, stiff ankles, etc.

The point is that we try to get to the route of the problem.

The one thing we can promise you is that each case is different and there is no cookie cutter way to treat you. Combining therapies with lifestyle changes will create a synergistic effect that will move you along faster than doing single therapies like only acupuncture, only chiropractic, only physical therapy, etc.

Cost can be a worry with synergistic therapy, but since you achieve your results faster than other methods, this will be less and after all, results are what everyone is after anyway.

You will also save a lot of time commuting because we have all our services under one roof and also one set of paperwork, which can be a nuisance these days. When you have a few different offices you visit for your one condition this can save a lot of time. If for some reason we cannot meet all of your needs, we have an extensive network of other medical professionals we work with.

So, the choice is yours, is it worth 20 minutes of your time to get a free consultation to see if you could benefit from our care? Just fill out the coupon offer to the right side of the page to redeem this offer and call (760) 777-8377 to schedule your appointment today.
