Words from Our Patients
  • Sarah and Daughter Brynnly

    Dr. Standing believes not only talking about medical history, but also the whole person including lifestyle and personal goals, health, and natural products. She saved me the possibility of lifelong medications. I love that she sat down and talked with me as a whole person, not just disease or set of symptoms. She has so much knowledge, but also has a huge, caring heart that makes her easy to talk to and trust. She puts her patients first.

  • Sommer and Son Dempsey

    Cheri’s approach to caring for both my son’s well being and mine is exactly what we’ve been looking for.

  • Paula and Son

     
    "My 3.5 year old son hadn't been growing, and was constantly getting sick, along with battling eczema all of his life, and never, EVER sleeping for more than a 2 hour stretch. After years of taking him to various doctors and specialists, no one seemed to find anything wrong with him. I was told that he was just a small child, and that I was a hypochondriac, and that the nurses and doctors just never measured him accurately. However, he still fit in his same 18 month sized clothes, that he had been wearing since he was 6 months old, and he was now 3.5 years old, so I knew that explanation was bologna. Zero growth in almost 3 years, still did not sit right with me, and I continued searching for answers. Coincidentally I was referred to Dr. Standing. She was able to see us fairly promptly, and actually took the time to listen to my concerns, without looking at me like I was a crazy woman. She was very empathetic, and knowledgeable and knew just the right tests to order. She spent an hour with us, and never made us feel rushed, always answering my questions.



    She was able to get to the root of my sons problems and recommend some drastic dietary changes, along with various supplements. We made the changes, and in two months, my son grew 1.6 inches and gained 1lb. After not gaining any weight in almost 3 years, and being in his same clothes size for 3 years, we were shocked, and relieved. We're definitely feeling confident in his prognosis, happy to see him finally growing, and thankful that he is finally sleeping through the night, his eczema has cleared up, and he hasn't gotten any bacterial or contagious illnesses. If you have a child with a tricky issue, or doctors haven't been able to find the root cause or any cause for your child's condition, please consider Dr. Standing in helping to heal your child!"

  • Just a quick, and very exciting, update on Catherine

    "We just came out of a mild flare, but moreso than that, while in the flare, we were in the midst of potty-training. We weren't really doing much, but prior to her flare she decided she had had enough of diapers. So we went with it. Then she started to flare and I thought for sure she would regress in the potty-training department. However, she didn't and she is now the proud owner of many princess themed underwear. We are thrilled. 

    She is progressing very quickly at school and we have to completely overhaul her IEP since she has already met all of her goals designed for the end of the year. Hooray! Her vocabulary is coming along nicely and she is truly more like a normal little girl. We still have a lot of separation anxiety, but she has gone back to sleeping in her bed from on the floor, and she is helpful, happy, and overall, an awesome little girl. I knew she was in there somewhere!!!! 



    She is still a skinny thing, but I have noticed her hair is thicker, healthier, and she is much taller. I will be anxious to see her height at our next appointment."

    I have been shouting your name from the mountain tops, so I hope you have been able to help some other PANDAS parents as well. I will call to make a follow up appointment soon.
