Jack's focus is on treating the whole person, not just the presence of infertility or gynecological imbalances. He treats the underlying constitution with gentle, personalized treatments to balance the body and restore optimal health. He is committed to continuing education and research to stay current in the areas of reproductive medicine, gynecology and women's health
He and his staff believe that offering patients the highest level of care is important due to the emotional stress, time frame, and often high cost of other treatments.
