Staff

We're all here as a team to support you

“People get into healthcare because they have a vision of what healthcare can be.”

Every one of our staff members are team players that are committed to putting the patient’s interests at the heart of their actions. Gumshoe Health recognizes that health care can be fragmented and confusing. Consequently, we do our best to help streamline patient care through inter-provider communications both within and without our facilities since the patient’s story should follow the patient, not the organization. Through a diversity of professions, people, and providers Gumshoe Health has a unique strength and an extended knowledge base to draw from.

What They Say

"I have been going to this center for a few months now and really love it. They are always on time too. I am always looking forward to my visits. The office is clean and tidy. The front staff are polite and very easy to schedule appointments with. I have mainly been working with Val he is very good at massage and is very friendly. The hour goes by so fast. He has helped with my pregnancy related sciatica, back pain and carpal tunnel. I will 100% be continuing treatment! .."
