Dr. Pierre is a versatile, caring, consistent, knowledgeable and professional naturopathic doctor who understands the importance behind integrative medicine and the power of educating her patients to think critically for themselves. I really love that as a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Pierre works with my lifestyle, diet, and genetics to get to the root causes of my issues. Thank you Dr. J!
When I first met Dr. Pierre, I immediately knew she was the doctor for me. I could tell that she truly cared about me and my health, which is something I had not felt with my previous doctor. I was very comfortable with her and was able to trust the recommendations given to me. She always did everything she told me she would and followed up as well. She is the best!
Dr. Pierre was recommended to me by a coworker and I'm happy I followed through with the recommendation. Dr. Pierre took the time to listen to my concerns and symptoms I was experiencing. I highly recommend seeing her to get back to optimal health. I'm definitely feeling better since seeing her.
