A personal note to you from Dr Nibbe:
As an internist and pediatrician, I have the unique advantage amongst specialists to care for every member of a family. Being able to witness family dynamics often confers important information that often helps me to take better care of my patients.
I welcome all types of medical issues, including those that other physicians have claimed to be incurable or "beyond help" (I have actually had patients whose doctor told them this!) The relationship between a doctor and her patient is a sacred one, and I see it as a meeting of two experts: I, the expert in the medical KNOWLEDGE of the ailment, and you as the expert in the EXPERIENCE of the disease. So please be confident that I will not berate you for having unusual symptoms or for having weird reactions to foods, medications, or certain environments. It is also important for my patients to come into an understanding that their body is intricately linked to their mind and spirit. I can help you to make these connections.
Although I have a healthy respect for many alternative medicine strategies, I employ those that have been vetted by evidence-based medicine and I follow all accepted algorithms for care of medical conditions.
This is an amazing time to be a physician! Medicine is rapidly evoloving. Gone are the times of one-size-fits-all strategies....history has proven that these do not work. Recent advances in technology are making available specialized testing of our genomes, bacterial biomes, specialized advanced biomarkers, anthropomorphic assessments. I can now offer my patients individualized assessments and plans that are unique to each person! With the information gained from such studies, and utilizing lifestyle changes (such as dialing in specific nutritional needs, exercise, spiritual health, sleep), you will be able to make greater headway than ever before towards OPTIMAL HEALTH!
Did I say lifestyle changes? Yes! This requires that my patients be motivated and engaged in their own journey towards health.
I would be honored to work with you, and your family, to help you with your metamorphosis as reach your optimal state of health and wellness!
