2019 offers New Doctors and New Services
As many of you know Dr. Weiner has been out on medical leave for a few months. He needs more time to heal, and we are looking forward to his recovery so he can get back to what he loves – working with people to help them heal and recover their health. While we continue to do our best to continue serving your healthcare needs and to do so we have hired a senior naturopathic doctor, Dr. Dawson Farr to fill in for Dr. Weiner while he is out on leave. Read more about him here. Dr. Weiner has the utmost confidence in Dr. Farr’s abilities.
Hence, we also have maintained our naturopathic doctor resident and welcomed Dr. Misty Story to Pearl in October. Dr. Story has jumped in with great compassion and excellence in her approach to patient care. In addition, she continues to receive supervision from Dr. Weiner as well as other physicians we have partnered with to ensure excellence in patient care.
Meet the Doctors!
Dr. Dawson Farr has joined Pearl Natural Health as our senior naturopathic doctor with 16 years of experience in the field.
After 13 years in a successful primary-care practice in Salem, Oregon, Dr. Farr jumped at the chance to go to Central America with his wife and two daughters, to be a physician-in-residence in a clinic in rural Nicaragua. For almost four years, as Medical Director, he oversaw 20 ten-day medical brigades, serving thousands of patients and supervised hundreds of medical students, physicians, acupuncturists, psychiatrists, massage therapists, and nutritionists.
Dr. Farr provides a unique perspective on the treatment of acute and chronic disease. He continues the work of Dr. Weiner in the treatment of complex diseases, including IBD (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and SIBO. However, he has a long-standing reputation in the effective treatment of endocrine disorders, fatigue, thyroid, adrenal and auto-immune disorders.
Eventually, he is also diagnosing and treating Lyme disease and mold-related conditions. Dr. Farr is skilled and adept in pain syndromes offering new services in both trigger point and prolotherapy injections.
His warmth and confidence as a physician are welcomed by the patients who work with him and our staff. We encourage you to call today to follow up on your health with Dr. Farr. You can take a look at Dr. Dawson Farr LinkedIn profile here.
Dr. Weiner selected Dr. Misty Story as our resident for her skills and focus on treating people with GI disturbances (IBD, IBS, and SIBO), chronic fatigue and endocrine disorders.
Before her residency, she received advanced training in naturopathic gastroenterology during a six-month mentorship with Steven Sandberg-Lewis, N.D. and participated in a naturopathic mental health rotation for nine months at a NUNM community clinic.
So, the personal experience in her diagnosis and treatment of IBS and Celiac Disease has provided Dr. Story with unique insight and compassion for the difficulty of the journey to better health. Witnessing family members dealing with mental health conditions, heart disease, autoimmune disease, and women’s health issues have been additional influences on her drive to help others.
Furthermore, Dr. Story is dedicated to being attuned to and researching the best options for her patients’ care. Call today to schedule with Dr. Story. You can take a look at Dr. Misty Story LinkedIn profile here.
