Dr. Gant exibited a lot of wisdom

Dr. Gant was very friendly and knowledgeable. He exhibited a lot of wisdom to go with his knowledge. Knowledge w/out it is not very useful. He took time to explain what the plan going forward would be after extensive testing. I look forward to getting help with the debilitating conditions I have been dealing with since childhood. 2021

Dr. Kannankeril

Dr. K. is an AMAZING doctor!!! Her expertise has helped me with an issue that many doctors overlooked and didn't take into consideration. Her focus on my issue was superb! She went above and beyond to find out what the root of my issue was. She found it, and for that I am forever grateful and thankful to God that he directed me to her!  2021

I cracked a tooth while in Florida and called for an appointment. NIHA was able to see me the next day. They were also able to repair the tooth with minimal work and cost. Dr McClure and his staff are the best. Highly recommend them for excellent dental needs. 2021

Dr. McClure was a hero

Just a note to say a very earnest thank you to your office and Dr. McClure for making a radical impact on a human life or two. 

I’ve been coming to the office with my kids for just a few months and have been impressed overall and pleased with the quality of care in general. It was what I was hoping for from a medical/wellness perspective.   But the warm, can-do, positive minded, supportive staff are a breath of fresh air and cherry on top.  

As a single mom, the cost of dental care has been overwhelming.  And I’m not sure where the money will come from everytime I run my card, but I trust it will keep showing up.  I’m also simultaneously aware of my good fortune, my privilege and relative good health - that there are so many people far less resourced and in much greater need of than I.   I  was taking a deep breath into that trust as I was checking out a few weeks ago and thought to just ask if Dr. McClure, NIHA ever does ‘charity’ work. 

As I asked, I had someone in mind who is working hard in recovery after a fairly traumatic 25 years of trauma and resulting alcohol and substance abuse. The hard life impacted his smile (on the outside and inside) and he was pretty sure he would need significant dental care to restore his smile (and zeal for life).  The  cost of which would be insurmountable for him.

I’ve been blown away by the response to this request.  The staff said a quick yes to my question and booked an appointment for my friend Miles on the spot. And last week Dr. McClure was a hero. Providing expert care, radical compassion and unexpected generosity, he deeply restored confidence on many levels for Miles.  This is not a small gift.  It is the gift of being able to live life with more vitality, openness and integrity. 

So, thank you.   You are making huge impacts.  We’ll be in and out of the office in the coming months (and years). Please let me know if there is anyway I can support the success of NIHA.

Warmly, D. Quynn, Founder, SOL Yoga Studio, 2021

 

Dr. McClure is exceptionally competent

Dr. McClure and his staff are great! I traveled from a rural area of PA to Washington DC for my appointment and was surprised and pleased to be treated with such warmth and kindness from the “big city” people. They know their stuff too as everyone easily answered all my questions. Dr. McClure is exceptionally competent and skillful yet he’s a down to earth guy, so I felt more relaxed and at ease.

Dr. Cannon

I especially appreciated the way the front desk greeted me that Saturday for my first appointment, in making me feel like I was important. When I got to meet Dr. Cannon, she was very warm and caring. She really seemed deeply concerned about my concerns, and I appreciated how she took her time with knowing who I am and what my needs were. She thoroughly went through my 16-page paperwork and even though she had been running quite behind that day, she didn't rush through me. She took the time to ask questions, show me things on the websites, and provide hope for me in her finding the root causes of my condition(s). When she said how high my blood pressure was, she didn't just dismiss that, but was really concerned and checked it again and wrote a prescription that same day, not the next day which would have been on Monday, and to top that, she followed up with me to ensure that I was okay. I have not had a Dr. in all my years treat me this way with so much concern. I am confident that my care with her will be a good and life changing one. Thank you Dr. Cannon and NIHA. Sincerely, Venicia

Dr. Tapscott

Excellent customer service, warm reception, pleasant staff. Dr. Tapscott is a great listener. My new medical record with her contains more meaningful information and recommendations than my PCP and 3 specialists combined! Doctible Review

Dental and Dr. McClure, helping the body heal itself

Have you ever experienced love at your dentist's office?  That's what I experience every time I visit the office of Mark McClure, DDS, at National Integrated Health Associates (NIHA).  When I first met Dr. McClure in December 2019, he did what no dentist (and no other physician of any kind) has ever done:  He took my hands, looked me in the eye, and said, "I'm so happy to meet you" (or words to that effect).  I was smitten.  I've now been through 5 procedures with him between January and April of this year:  mercury removal, damaged tooth repair via crown, bridge removal, new crown on bridge anchor tooth, and extraction of root canal tooth.  For each procedure, Dr. McClure was present and caring.

In particular regarding the extraction:  I was very afraid of having the extraction and put it off for months. Though I accepted Dr. McClure's assessment that the root canal tooth was leaching toxins into my body and his recommendation to extract it, I'm very against invasive procedures, especially removing body parts!  He never pushed me to do it - just educated me with stacks of materials.  I came to my own conclusion and did it.

As the extraction was about to begin, I expressed my worry and began asking him what the steps of the procedure would be.  Dr. McClure looked me in the eye and said, "I'm a good surgeon."   I realized in that moment that I could trust him, so I gave the go-ahead.  He prayed with me.  I asked for someone to hold my hand.  Dr. McClure said, "Shirley is a professional hand-holder."  He called her in, and she held my hands tightly throughout the entire 20-minute procedure. By the way, the procedure, which took place 3 weeks ago, went well, and I'm healing fine.

I could go on and on with other examples of Dr. McClure's care.  If anyone wants to contact me directly for more, I'll be happy to oblige.  I'll end with another question:  Have you ever been to a dentist's office where your concerns were sincerely listened to and assuaged by accessible staff members, no matter how many times you called or emailed?  I hadn't, until I went to Dr. McClure's office.  Dental practice manager Laurie Parrinello, dental associates Nicole terElst and Scott Richards, dental technicians Kia and Alem, and the above-mentioned Shirley Butler, have all been way more than 100% supportive.

Finally, I'm not even mentioning the holistic nature of the practice - that would be a whole other email. Suffice it to say that It's such a relief to visit a medical office that speaks my language of helping the body heal itself. Thank you, NIHA! 5/20

 
 
 

Dr. Tapscott, an exceptional practitioner

I was on a mission to explore healing possibilities when I encountered Denia Tapscott MD. Seeing numerous practitioners without much help, l did not have a lot of hope. However, from the initial consult till the present I have found Dr. Tapscott an exceptional practitioner with excellent assessment abilities. She is able to look at me holistically and develop a very focused plan of care that is realistic to implement. Her professional and compassionate communication skills made it easy for a very sick person to understand complex concepts. I highly recommend Dr. Tapscott to all that wish to explore a better quality of life.

As I begin to recover, I sign myself, Lazarus. 2020

 

 

Laurie and Nicole in Dental

I just wanted to send you a BIG THANK YOU for working on getting all the information for my insurance. Your work paid off big time and my insurance covered almost 50% of the bill! This made a big difference for me and I'm very appreciative to you both!

Dr. Tapscott

I came to Dr. Tapscott after months of suffering from joint pain, brain fog, muscle cramps, weight gain, fluid retention, and the list goes on.  Numerous doctors told me there wasn't anything medically wrong with me and that I just needed to exercise, drink more water, and that my symptoms were just part of the aging process.  Dr. Tapscott took the time to get to know me as a person - what I do for work, what I do for fun, what I eat, how/when/if I exercise, and of course, my medical issues.  It is because of her that I can now begin a new chapter in my life - one of health.  I now know I have Lyme disease, but more than that, Dr. Tapscott has not only provided me with the tools to treat Lyme but also how to live a more healthy life in all that I do.  I will definitely recommend Dr. Tapscott and NIHA to others.

Dr. Gant saved my husband's life

5 Star Google Review

Dr. Gant saved my husband's life. He faced a terminal diagnosis of stage 4 melanoma. Even though we were given no hope by other very reputable oncology doctors, Dr Gant spent countless hours with us to determine the biological cause of cell mutation and developed a treatment plan that worked. We are forever grateful to Dr. Gant and the team at NIHA who tirelessly helped our family. M.D. 2018

Dr. McClure and Dental Team

I am so grateful for the care that I received from Dr. McClure and the phenomenal team. I was emotionally overcome by the end results of my treatment. I was immediately able to reap the benefits of the procedures for my chronic bacterial circulatory infection and now, untold, afflictions are curtailed. And if that was not enough, I was chartered to and from your headquarters with divine intervention.

This opportunity with Dr. McClure and team fortifies my body to continue my duties free of premature exhaustion, enhanced gaiety, and overall healing of my mind, body, and spirit.

My inspired duties are to employ daily, empirical, multi-sensory learning outcomes for our at-risk youth in East Orange, NJ as a special education teacher. These objectives are not easily implemented as the road is unpaved, the expenses are not allocated in the school budget and the necessity of training my assistants are components of my professional mission. The success or immediate results of these world class objectives is the fuel needed to propel our inspired team and create an environment similar to your office. For it is truly a miracle, the effects are immeasurable and ultimately who we are as Americans.

In my case, all of this is true with the root canal tooth, the four cavitations, and the chronic bacterial infection; tears flood my eyes imagining what is possible. Now that I’m am free of these conditions, during the summer, I will dwell in the possibilities preparing to employ our greatest attempts to date for the 2019 - 2020 school year and beyond. With all the warmth and gratitude I can covey via this email; thank you!

In closing, I controlled my desire to rejoice teary eyed and bear hug Dr. McClure and team, it is my intention for this note to deliver that sentiment and hugs. 6/19
