Reviews

"I can’t even begin to explain how much Dr. Postma has helped me in my health journey. I have been to a handful of functional medicine doctors but Dr. Postma is different. He takes the time to figure out the root cause and tackle it from there. He made a simple change to the kind of iron I was taking and it did wonders for my iron levels, energy, and hair. He truly cares about his clients. Thanks Dr. Postma!!"
